Day 17: overall the day was uneventful. A couple stopped to ask if we needed help and they gave us some directions. We couldn't help but notice that the lady in passenger seat couldn't stop laughing at us and was trying hard to conceal it. We continued on our way asking ourselves if we should feel badly that she was laughing at us?
As we came to the last mile of our day a truck stopped and asked if we needed a place to stay. He said his land was half-mile down and we were free to setup where we would like. We chose to sleep in the pole barn since a storm was supposedly on it's way. Dave (the farmer) was headed out fishing until dusk and told us the house was open. Another trusting person to add to the list. When he got home we stopped over to say hi and give our thanks. He had caught 6 Walleye. We had a lengthy chat and then headed off to bed.
Day 18: We left Dave's bright and early and headed on our way up River Road. The weather was warm and sunny. We had a great time grooving to tunes and hiking 11 miles. Saw a few tree farms today; it has been nice to notice and appreciate aspects of farm country while traveling on foot. Our friend Hal came up to camp with us tonight. Cooked brats over the fire. Two days till Grand Rapids!
Nothin' to it, but to do it
