Day 7

79 miles
We left Rufus and set off for our next destination, not really sure where that would be. We traveled mostly on the high way and got off at a small town to get lunch. We had a picnic at a nearby park and met a group of Mormon students who were doing a re-enactment. After lunch we continued on the highway, up and down really steep hills. It was an enjoyable ride for the most part. We stopped at a truck stop to get a quick snack and rest. While there I gave myself Dread-locks because I hadn't showered in so long and we met our savior, John Tucker.

 At first I was a little suspicious, but he turned out to be the best person we met the entire trip. He invited us to his house for dinner and camping in his yard. He said his house was a little ways down the road, which I am sure it was in a car, but for us it was the longest 25 miles. We faced head winds and got lost at a military area. Once we made it to John Tuckers he had a huge barbecue already going. We ate hamburgers and the best Walla Walla Sweet Onions. I also got to call home for the first time in a while. Talking to my mom and dad was really nice, I miss them, but I am also having a lot of fun. We mostly talked about the other people on the trip and my sore butt.

That evening we had gallons of ice cream, did our laundry, showered, and John Tucker let us sleep in his house. It was the best night sleep I have had on the trip. The bed was super comfy and I was so tired and thankful that I didn't have to sleep with the ear wigs we had brought with us from Rufus.
