Day 26 Summersville to Hartville 61 miles


There was a horrendous 3 hour thunder storm in the middle of last night,never heard such loud bangs and high winds blowing outside our motel,thought the roof was going to come off.We were on the road by 7.30 and our route kept us on top of the Ozarks high ridge, the ups and downs were not as steep as the past 2 days and we were going between 1,200 and 1,350 ft,all along the route we could hear saw mills cutting logs and once again there were the usual logging trucks.Just passes Houston we turned left and suddenly we were in cattle ranche country,lots of fields of cattle up to their ears in lush green grass,all chomping away and looking very content. The only shop for miles was at Bendavis where Ben gave us a free lunch and we chatted with a fellow cyclist called Pieter from Toronto and he was cycling home via New York.We reached Harlville at 4-30 and as there are no official camp sites so we have just put our tents up in a public park near a lake.People keep telling us that there is another storm on the way tonight,hope not
