Day 29 – Roadkill update

(Rest-day – still 16 miles around town)

So we’re taking a rest-day in Pittsburg, which is only 20-30 miles from Joplin where a mega-tornado tore through and destroyed much of the city a few weeks back. Pittsburg, as a nearby town, was feeling the after-effects; I had real trouble finding a room in a motel – they were all fully-booked with press, scientists and various ‘displaced’ folk and supplies in the grocery stores were running low because there’d been such a spike in demand.

We treated ourselves to a proper American diner breakfast (oh how I love those!) then ticked our chores off the to-do list: laundry, library, bike-shop, grocery store. Fortunately there was still enough time left over to actually rest!

Here I am!

Side-note: I know you’ve all been wondering, so here’s the low-down on our roadkill spots so far:
Mice
Chipmunks
Frogs
Turtles
Squirrels
Possums
Skunks
Racoons
Cats
Dogs
Armadillos
Vultures
Wild turkey
Numerous other birds
A bobcat
Deer

We also regularly see deer bounding away/across the road as we approach.
