Day 25 Berea, KY

We took a rest day and stayed an extra day in Berea at the Boone Tavern Hotel. We walked around the campus of Berea college and did some laundry.

Went down to breakfast and Don and Shelly from TX was there. They are taking pause to head home for some graduation celebrations. Hope to meet up again down the road. Check out Pat’s biker tan.

Walked a mile to this laundromat. Looks abandoned and several of the machines were broken but we were able to get our laundry done.

Pat knitting on porch as Marks plots out our next days in KY. We are told that Berea is where the Mountains and Blue Grass meet.

Berea College has an amazing story. Students pay no tuition and work 10 hours per week at jobs on campus. Most students come from low income families in Appalachia.

As we were sitting on the porch these two westbound cyclists rode by. They stopped around the corner and we talked for a while. Drew and Ryan are moving pretty fast and have already done a 100+ mile day in these hills!

  1. Ha, Pat, love your biker tan – great stripes! Glad to see you finding time to knit :). Berea College sounds very interesting – love how students work on campus to earn their ability to attend the school.



  2. Gary and I are enjoying your stories of Kentucky hospitality !! Now you know why we enjoy our place on the lake. People really are caring, and we’re glad you are getting to experience some of them.
