The only problem was that I only had a small amount of cash and they did not take credit cards!
But hospitality ruled supreme and they took what cash I had and made me some hot food and a coffee.
That was followed by more wet walking and a hammock night in a state forest. It rained a little bit through the night but I stayed dry and the morning has started dry, with some sunshine.
Today will be a boring slog along the highway, but hopefully a bit dryer.
