Ellsworth to Salina, KS – Day 37
We weren’t too far up the road when my buddy (Tag) from the general store in Claflin found us. He said he was a bit worried about us and had been out looking for us all morning. He was disappointed in the short distance we had traveled…great sense of humor. I am so happy Tag found us and I feel like I have another Grandpa
Another day of looking for shade lead us into the Brookville Park. The town had no services but I had asked if I could use the facilities in the Brookville United Methodist Church. I was a bit taken back when I walked in the church and found there was a graduation party taking place. I was there not five seconds before they invited us in to have some food and drink. Congrats again to Emily on her graduation and thanks to her whole family for the great rest stop.

This was our destination to camp but the threatening clouds and distant lightening encouraged us to take shelter in a local hotel. Not to mention the number of cars backed in and others doing laps in the park.
