My Indiana Family

Rode 65 miles til Lagro, Indiana, and decided that I couldn’t go much farther, and was sadly out of food for the most part. Contacted a WS host, Lavonne, and she told me she’d welcome me to her outbuilding pavilion for the night and invited me to dine with her family, as well! I tried to head back to her place given her directions, but I got lost. She came to guide me behind her truck, which was incredibly nice. Had a really fun dinner with her big family, including her mother and her brothers and her extended family. It was wonderful– their sense of humor reminded me of home, and I was incredibly grateful for their company, and also for the amazing meal with all sorts of tasty goodness. Had fun meeting the kids, including young Landon, who aspired to be a cardiothorasic surgeon and wanted to see my first aid kit. Right on, smart dude! Lavonne’s daughter Kami also brought me to a grocery store so I could stock up. This family really went above and beyond to welcome and help me, and the little kids even played with Petunia, which was awsome. 

My waterproof tent was having some stinkiness and condensation issues, so I was looking forward to getting it clean.



The beautiful views greeted me in the AM, and the family was kind and helpful and let me hang my tent up to dry for a while. 




The AMAZING breakfast that Lavonne and family provided was delicious, and it gave me the strength to ride a 90 mile day!

    Very good blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused ..

    Any ideas? Many thanks!

      Thanks! You can create a WordPress
      Site for free if you’re interested in writing. I’m self taught so I don’t have better advice than that. Best of luck!

      Thanks! I guess my best advice is just read a lot, and think about what makes some of them more enjoyable to read than others, and if there are some of those elements you want to emulate. I only have experience writing here on WordPress, but I imagine that anywhere you write would be good enough, as long as you get the words to come out and share them with others. I have found WordPress easy to use… and there are often YouTube tutorials and good help sections on WordPress. Happy writing!
