We came upon a cute little town- Fordsville. They were having a county wide yard sale. Every house had a garage sale sign and traffic was backed up for miles. In town was a classic car show, a tractor show and all kinds of booths. Just as we pulled out of town, there was a sign in a yard for a checker tournament at 10 am! We rode a couple more miles and a cop car passes up with his lights on, then a hearse, then a whole line of cars with funeral flags waving. I made the remark that all we needed was a wedding to complete the day. Sure enough, when we hit Buffalo, there was a wedding going on in a yard. Ya gotta love it! I smiled all day.
Thought of the day- We met a family with two young boys at a gas station. The boys had never seen a tandem bike and had a lot of questions. I gave them some bracelets and stickers and Janis gave them each $2 so they could go to the yard sales. One of the boys made a comment that stuck with me for the rest of the day. He was impressed that the three of us were riding our bikes across America. He said "someday I'm gonna do that too". I love that he was impressed at a young age to do something big. I really believe he will ride his bike across America. We all leave impressions on people. This young boy had never seen a tandem and couldn't believe this bike could go across America. His desire to be and do something out of the ordinary from what his friends and family know will spark him to be a leader.
