We have had a couple of nice encounters with people as we have been biking. On one occasion, we were flagged down by a person waving his arms and yelling for us to stop. Turns out he was the owner of a weekend house that a biking club uses. There were several bikers there who had just finished their ride for the day and were getting ready to eat lunch. We were treated to lunch, lots of snacking goodies and some good conversation. Then we left to get 30 more miles of biking before we called it a day. Another time, two fellows driving on a historical tour treated us to cold drinks and snacks out of their car. And finally when we arrived in Kountze today we were looking at our map when a car pulls up and asks if he could help. Turns out he was the police chief of the town. He had us follow him to the police station where he invited us to tent for the night on the lawn then took us to the library where we are now. We will pass up the tenting and check into a motel, as the nights are still chilly, too cold for us to start chilled. These little episodes make our day. We just read our comments and were pleased to hear from those who jotted a note. Somewhere along the way, we will do an inventory of our biking gear for those interested just in case someone out there might want to follow in our tire tracks.
Now for some photos from the past few days.

And another photo from Round Top. We must have felt like taking a camera break.
We expect to be out of Texas in 2 days! One thousand miles in one state is enough. But we still have 1000 miles to go..............will keep you posted. Bill and Ann
