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.

Any Plug in a Rest Area

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.

Another Audio Book Day on the Lawn

At the Rest Area I also discovered that other travelers have had challenges on these roads.

Early Roads in this Area Posed Significant Challenges

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.
