Bruce's Blog--Day 47--West Virginia

Taking detours seems to be a normal occurrence for our journey. One detour led me to a dead end, so I had to go quite a few miles to get back to where I came from, but it was well worth it.

The backwoods of Ohio are quite a lot of fun because you never know what you’ll run into. I ran into this bizarre looking animal I could not distinguish. It apparently wanted to know what I was doing near its domain with the uncanny look it gave me.

As I was advancing towards West Virginia during my running leg, it was becoming increasingly dark and fast. It was nice, though, because for the first time in a while I was able to do a “most night run!” For miles and miles, there were sidewalks lined up against a steep embankment leading to West Virginia, and right before I cross the border, I leaped with joy. That was the last state, en route, that I had never been to.

When we arrived to our campsite this evening, we found out that we had internet but weren’t able to upload anything. So, I’m going to include tomorrow’s day of rest in today’s blog.

Where to begin. Today was a major day of catch up. We ran errands, did laundry, and cleaned the car, which brought us nearly to the end of the day. Before we called it a day, however, we decided to go to the pool.

It was there that I saw this lady with a monkey. Of course, it struck my curiosity, and I asked her what kind it was. It is a Capuchin from South America. I asked if I could hold it, but even as gentle as I was, I terrified it. It gave me a face not even words can describe. We took a few pictures and some video footage of it.

Check it out!

For the finale to our night, we had a “roaring” bonfire. Well, not really! It was a fire, we think. I can assure you it sufficed, though, for cooking hotdogs and marshmallows for smores. Some of Tim’s relatives from Pittsburgh joined us for a while, which was great fun!

Now that they’ve left, it’s time for some shuteye, for tomorrow’s day will bring me into my home state. See you soon! God bless!
