Day 16 (Scott)
Meeting strangers in the middle interstate. Yesterday’s blog in action. We only had been on the road for about 45 miles on a three lane toll road, and we come to a dead stop. Cars stopped for miles. It did not take long for the guys to spring into action, well maybe this time it was the other way around. Well, maybe it was the other way around, they came to us… more like they swarmed on us. The guys were passing out cards, the little hands and feet, or any thing we had to tell the story. We had little kids sitting on our bikes. We even had some bring their own bikes out to put them line with us. We visited for over an hour and by the end of the stop we had lots of new friends and over hundred dollars.
Now for the rest of the day, TOLL ROAD. I don’t need to say anything else. The only highlight was watching a mother goose with all of her baby chicks in a line marching down the side of the road. I would have stopped and asked her how she managed to keep them all in line without straying, but at 80 MPH it’s hard to stop.
