Rain. Some more rain. Even more rain.
This time I did a better job keeping things dry inside my tent, but it’s the nature of rain to find its way in. But most of my stuff stayed dry. I’m optimistic things will be even better as time goes on.
It’s been gray and overcast or raining all day, so mostly I’ve stayed in the tent figuring things out. A lost day, but a day of rest. (At 6 pm the sun is still out, and it feels great!)
I made a connection with a young man named Kaleb Kasitz through the Couchsurfing app. Although Kaleb no longer lives in Kansas, his father, Rodney, returned my call and we worked it out so I’ll spend tomorrow night at his home in Louisburg.
I also connected with Brady (through the WarmShowers app, which is frequented mostly by cyclists). He’s out of town, but called and gave me some valuable information about the Katy Trail heading into St. Louis.
Right now I’m watching grass grow and listening to songbirds sing and Canada geese honk as I wait for my devices to charge using the outdoor electrical outlet.
Rant Alert: You and your “dental professional” may love them, but I absolutely hate floss picks. I’ve seen a thousand picks on sidewalks everywhere—in parks (including this one) and along 1,500 miles of US highways. I actually got angry when my Berkeley dentist offered me samples. I told her that too many people just throw them on the ground and the damned things will never disappear. Just use floss. She actually agreed with me.
