Day 98

Day 98
I rose with the sun. One of the tires was flat on the buggy! It was a disappointing start to the day. I must have damaged on of the tubes when I was swapping out the tires. Good thing I was able to get an extra!


I headed over to the public library and sat outside to use wifi. I needed to catch up on journaling. I swapped out the inner tube, filled up an empty water gallon at the hose, and took a quick hose bath. I hit the road.


After a few miles, storm clouds rolled in! 


I decked the poncho and sought shelter under the 71 over pass. It was a crazy storm. Lightening struck down very close, it was so loud.


And just like that it was over. Scattered storms. I hit the road.


 I rationed what food I had left throughout the day: the last of the almonds and dried cherries, canned herring, an orange, and a package of tuna. 


I took lots of pictures and passed through so many beautiful areas. 


I even saw a crazy spider, it walked with me for a little bit!


I took a break at a roadside truck stop. I was out of food. I bought a can of beef stew for dinner. 


An hour or so before sundown, I was approaching La Grange. Storm clouds rolled in again! I hurried to St. Matthews Baptist missionary church a few miles outside town.


It was quiet and secluded, in the middle of nowhere. I set up my hammock and tarp in the back of the property. I slept really good: no mosquitos! Thunder storms throughout the night! It was great!
