Today was a wonderful day. On the way out of town, I stopped by Sandhills Curiosity Shoppe. The proprietor, Harley Russell was filming outside. Quite a character.
My goal was to walk toward Elk City, about 32 miles. The walk was beautiful. I was on the old Route 66. It was very quiet with minimal traffic.
I was starting to get a little hungry and getting ready to stop and have some lunch. All of a sudden, Chrissy and Gunner show up with two hamburgers and water. Chrissy said she was explaining to her son about paying it forward and helping others. What a great mom and I am glad I was the benefactor of her lesson.
I made it to the town of Sayre and stopped at McDonalds to get a drink. A man who passed me earlier was sitting in a booth. He struck up a conversation about what I was doing and why. Four hours later we parted ways. He was a local farmer and had a wealth of information. It was a blast to spend time with him.
Needless to say I didn’t make it to Elk City. I am staying the night in Sayre. Works out as I have to fix two new blisters.
