Day 99

First, thanks to all that commented on Casey's malady!  She's all good.  Whatever it was, it passed quickly and she's good!
Another great day for travel!  56 degrees!!  That is probably the ONLY reason we left our safe haven from last night.  Got to meet the Mayor this morning.  Danny Lacy and he called his friend Anthony (the Monk) and we sat down and checked out maps for the best next step.  Found a good way to go!  So, even with the invitation to stay as long as we liked, it was time to head out into the day!  Making hay while the sun is shining, so to speak.  We did make it 16 miles today so.......
We had one HUGE hill along the way and they kids did it without a hitch!  They are getting so good and so STRONG!
We met Margaret Johnson.  She asked for prayer for her family and for the Terry family! She had passed us and came back to ask what we were doing.   You know the rest :)
So, we got to the by pass around Hopkinsville and called Johnny to find out where we were going.  He was already on his way toward us!  Sure enough, within minutes they caught up to us!  We were only about 2 miles from our stop.  They lead us in and waited for us to get settled then took us to the Wood Shed for their famous B-B-Q.  Or a grilled cheese and fries depending on how you look at it!  The food was great and so was the company!  We finally got to meet Johnny's wife, Cindy.  Just as nice as him and Jason.  Great folks!  Thanks for all your help guys!  Then we went for a drive to check the route we were going to take.  Johnny agreed that the route we chose was a good one and we are actually almost to the road we picked.  So, we are all set for the start up tomorrow!  Almost to Tennessee!!!
Bob...Thanks!  Whatever it was, it passed quickly...Thank God.  But still good advice for the memory bank.
Larry, Paula, Gina, & Mark...Thanks.  She's all good again. Good to hear from you all again!!
Joan...Thanks for your prayers.  She's better now
Crickette...Awesome you saw the comment!  Prayers for your diabetes.  Good luck finding the book!
Benjamine...I sent you an e mail
So, that was our day.  Wind blown, tummies full, must be time for bed!
Godd night and God bless you all!

I am glad to hear that Casey is doing better.

I am also glad that you have had good days to travel. I pray that they stay good for you.

I have a couple of prayer request:

My mom is not feeling well. Last night she had a migraine(the second one that she has ever had) it brought her down really fast. She was in a great deal of pain. She is a little better now... sleeping so that is good but her head still hurts.

Also, I am starting back to work on January 2nd. I am still not 100% but I know that I need to get back to work. Please pray that I am able to do this.

You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Love always,

Rachel and Family
