Calm, crisp morning. 49°F at 8:30. Need to wait for 55°F
Breakfast at KOA, Carnation Instant Breakfast and a Cliff, Builder protein bar.
Coffee at 9:00 AM was an added treat!
Charged 2.4 hours inside the Restroom at the Rest Area 22 miles before Hardin.
While charging I laid on the grass and listened to the George Muller biography just like I did at in Laurel yesterday.
Very relaxing, and very reassuring since I wasn’t certain I would make it all the way to Hardin without at least a little solar charging.
At the Rest Area I also discovered that other travelers have had challenges on these roads.
I may be the first riding an upright electric scooter, but I’m sure that the earlier adventurers had much greater difficulties than I’ve faced.
As I would find out the next morning, electricity was the least of the problems I had, but I was blissfully unaware of it.
Oh God, thy sea is so great and my boat is so small…
