So day 61 brings us more of the same weather as day 60! Drizzly, misty, blah! But, still knowing that Tuesday is supposed to be the worst of it, on we go!
Today we passed under I-70. Whew! Finally got rid of some of the traffic! Still some hills, but manageable. The horses did very well at the HUGE interchange! Four truck stops, lights, overpass, and trucks coming out of every drive available! They are getting so grown up!! Very proud of them. Not perfect, mind you, but alot better than the early days!
Officers EVERYWHERE!! BTW...don't pass fancy black new Dodge Chargers!!!!! It just might be that you got yourself a ticket!!! I only know this because when we were resting the guys, he was the officer that was kind enough to stop and make sure everything was ok.
We met Kenny Crandell. He was just stopping to check us out!
Then down the road a piece, Pastor Olin Strader stopped for pictures and a chat! He would like prayer for a revival in Brazil! In his church and everywhere! He is concerned about where this country is going!
At a house away from where we stopped for the night we met Doug and his daughter Callie Ream. Callie was taking lots of pictures. The rest of the family is Annette and Jenna. Their prayer request is for Jenna to get to feeling better.
Then we came to the driveway of Mike & Jeanette Ledgerwood. They were in their truck by the road. Mike called out that the horses lookes thirsty! When I said they were, they invited us in. And here we are! We met Mikes mom and 2 of his sons, Levi and Jeremiah. Nice family. Went in for pizza and showers and some good conversation! Great people! Once again, going to get a little redirection. Staying a safe distance from the worst of the hills.
While putting the horses up, we all noticed that Casey has a loose shoe so that will be a farrier call tomorrow. Looks like we only need a tightening so it should be a quick fix.
We are in Center Point, IN. And ready for some good sleep!
So, good night and God bless to all of you! Thanks for reading :)
