Today was an interesting day. We woke up to a heavy fog
(see middle picture below) and had to sit until 8:00 AM before I could start walking. I actually went out with about a tenth mile visibility, but I had my orange vest on and I was about ten feet from the road. It was no problem at all and the fog cleared in a couple of hours. I started walking this morning and immediately found a horseshoe, a real one from a horse, not one you pitch horseshoes with. So, I picked it up and carried it till I hooked up with Valda to get my water. It’s going to the grandsons and I just hope I can find another one somewhere along the way.
The day today was muggy, but not too hot. The breeze was very slight to non-existent. This is okay, but the bugs really bother you when there is no breeze. We are currently about 18 miles west of Bloomfield, IA and should get there easily tomorrow. My brother Ron is coming out on his motorcycle to see us tomorrow and then will walk with me some on Friday before heading back to Indy.
The montage picture is from our son Chris. It shows me on four different days during the walk. I just couldn’t believe how much smaller the walking stick has gotten. Just compare the pictures and see how little it has become. Amazing.
The bottom picture is of the yard of the Mayor of Promise City, Brenda DeVore, who is also the manager of the Prairie Trails Museum in Corydon. Valda met her yesterday and we got a nice email from her this afternoon. Not much else happened today. No problems and hopefully there will be none tomorrow.
