Houston, MO to Marshfield, MO
We left Houston and within a few miles we had cyclist Jonathan and Mike catch up with us. We rode with them for a little while to the first town we came upon.
It looked as if it might storm and rain was in the forecast. We decided to keep going and ran into very little rain. We arrived in Hartville, MO and stopped at the subway for some lunch. We met some very nice folks there.
We started off toward Marshfield, MO and we ran into some rain. We made it to Marshfield and we were ready for hotel. We first stopped at a grocery store and stocked up on some food. We then headed to the Holiday Inn Express. We checked in and they had specific rooms they usually gave to cyclists due to it being easy to maneuver the bikes in and out of the rooms. Linda was quite disappointed when she found no microwave and refrigerator in the room, but the hotel clerk let her use the microwave behind the desk and use the refrigerator in the staff kitchen.
We ate, showered and got ready for the next day.
