Safe inside First Baptist Church. Storms should end by 9 and then I’ll get on the road.
As I wait out this strong morning storm, I’d just like to thank all the wonderful people who have helped me along the way….
Pastor Mike and his family (photo above) from First Baptist Church in Vega, Texas let this weary traveler throw a sleeping bag down at the church overnight. Such a simple thing that meant so much.
Brandon at the bike shop in Tucumcari (photo above) put a liner in my wheels to help ward off frequent punctures. He also threw in a another spare inner tube.
Paula (photo above, with me) – in charge of the fabuous History Museum in Tucumcari. She helped turn the old schoolhouse into a great collection of local artifacts and she got me connected with Gail at the Chamber of Commerce.
Gail (photo above) is from Waukesha, Wisconsin. She took me to the Economic Development Committee meeting where I was given the opportunity to share my story about the tour and Alzheimer’s. Then she set me up at a wonderful hotel for the night.
The kindness of strangers throughout this trip has been amazing.
