Day 26: Neosho to Branson, MO (10/7)

A few obstacles here and there, but actually a mainly peaceful ride (with no shoulders).  Lots of nice little homes (each equipped with a dog, some leashed, some loose).  Nice forested area in the Mark Twain National Forest (with no shoulders).  Friendly people (except for the occasional unfriendly native sporting poor dental hygiene and a poor soda can throwing ability).  Great weather (no really, great weather).  And the camaraderie of Austin and Joseph.  Can’t beat it!  We’ve made it to Branson, MO without incident.  Our third rest day location out of four.

Incidentally, Joseph’s media blitz yesterday did make it to the Joplin Globe. Wow!  And yours truly is set right along side Joseph in the article.  See it here:  link to article.

And here’s a picture of Dave the Wave’s shoe.  We were so excited he wore something other than his sandals to dinner, I took a picture of it:
