Today started with another excellent Vicki breakfast. Rested and very well fed and i was ready to go. Jerry offered to cycle the first nine miles(all up hill) with we. I gladly agreed.
The cycle with jerry was predominantly uphill but it was quite gradual and before long, we were at the top. having driven up the same hill yesterday, it was nice to know pretty much how far we were and how far we had to go. I said my goodbyes to jerry and thanked him for their great hospitality. Then followed a nice long downhill. I flew the next 55 miles and arrived in the small town of Winnett at around 11. I was almost immediately met by the local school principal, who i had been told to contact by a man living in the same building as jerry and Vicki.
He was very kind and let me into the school to use their internet and showers. I stayed in the school for quite a while before leaving to get some lunch.
The principle also told me that this county, petroleum county, has the same area as new jersey, with a population of 480 people.
After lunch i headed to the city park which also acts as the towns campsite. It was actually quite nice, setting up camp was the easiest yet. I then headed back to the only cafe(starting to become a regular phrase) to get some dinner. By 8pm, i was ready for bed. Tomorrow is to be a long day due to the fact that there is not a lot in terms of civilization for the next few miles. As i lay in the tent, i felt the rain begin to thunder down on the tent. It was nice listening to it, could a change in weather be coming?
