Day 112: Looking Forward to a Break

Crop Duster in NebraskaTen more miles tomorrow and I’ll be in Hastings, NE, my halfway point! Today we left Minden and I did a 20-miler. The day itself was overcast all morning and cool, then scattered clouds in the afternoon and not too hot. There was a nice breeze out of the east all day and I don’t think it hit the 90’s that was projected.

We are currently sitting in the driveway of Lloyd S. of Kenesaw, Nebraska. Valda & I drove into Kenesaw for our dinner break, looking for a city park or some shade tree somewhere. We saw Lloyd outside and stopped and asked where the park was. After a brief conversation he said to pull into his driveway and use his shade tree, which we did. After I completed walking, we came back here to spend the night. I want to thank Lloyd for the hospitality, the four ears of sweet corn he gave us, and for letting us plug into his garage for electricity tonight. The generosity of strangers continues 😀

I plan to blog tomorrow night, but after that, I’m not sure. I know I won’t be walking on Thursday, but plan to walk on Friday and maybe Saturday, though not a full day of walking. We will leave Hastings on Sunday morning and head toward Iowa.

Valda took some pictures of a crop-duster today. We may not be in the mountains, but the picture opportunities come in different ways.
