Goose Landing, Warsaw, Illinois
Susan, the mother (?) Of the brother of the owner/manager came out to greet me with donuts after I explained how I was treated by the owner’s boyfriend (?) last night.
She wished me safe travels and I’m now heading South along back roads in light drizzle and will stop along the way for breakfast and then cross into Kentucky or Missouri before lunch.
Warm weather here, I think it stayed in the sixties all night, but after my experience with the boyfriend of the manager who came off more as a drug dealer / club bouncer than a campground host and the constant route 149 traffic I didn’t sleep that well.
Oh and the spiders are getting bigger…
Let’s see how far I can make it today!
I’m eating left over pizza from lunch and the can of ravioli that Keith graciously gave me while camping out in a trailer park next to a major highway and across the road from a tiki bar and a strip club in East Cape Girardeau, Illinois.
I’m thankful for my first shower in three days.
After waking up in the cabin at the Eagles club and heading out, I headed out through Chester, home of Popeye.
I ran across Jodie’s farmhouse Cafe and stopped in for breakfast…
Heading down south out of town in the overcast, windy, and slightly chilly weather. Looks like the rain is going to hold off another day, so time to put on some miles.
The goal today:
A man told me today, ” I’ve had two bad marriages. The first one, she left me. The second one, she won’t leave me. She’ll be waiting for me when I get home.”
… Er, I mean, cyclists stay for free at the Eagles’ Club in Chester, Illinois (the home of Popeye.)
Everybody is super nice here in southern Illinois.
Craig and Brandi who told me about the Eagles club in Chester. Jay and Lynn at Lynn’s bar who told me about the bridge being out and camping at the lock and dam. Bartender, Liz, has been really welcoming here at the Eagles’ Club too.
Looking forward to a warm shower after dinner.
