Ruthie On The Road, Update

I have been on the road and have finally come in for a temporary landing back in Portland, Oregon. I will be here for the next two weeks.

I left Anderson, Indiana during the tail-end of a spring storm and rode all night and into the next day. Late in the afternoon, I was hot and dehydrated when I was picked up by a woman named Lorrie in Princeton, Illinois.

I stayed with that wonderful lady for two days and repaired myself.

She lives in a big old Civil War-era house with hardwood floors, her teens and a big dog named Duke.

We stayed inside and avoided the 100 plus heat outside and watched Lorrie's favorite movie "Pay It Forward." Then later on that night she drove me to the Big 80 truck stop in Iowa.
