After some yogurt and trail mix, I stopped at the cutest combination barber shop/bike shop I've ever seen, where a dandy old man with white hair and red suspenders trued my front wheel and sold me a new tube, for a total of $10.
Then I was finally on my way.
I'd been warned about Gordon being "not a place I would want my daughter camping out", but I checked it out anyways, and got an offer from some nice folk at the gas station. I was fed spaghetti, and slept in the spare bedroom! I love Midwestern hospitality!
$43 leggings, t-shirt, propane, food, etc.
$10 bike repair
