Church hostel where we stopped to fill up water bottles as we passed by.

We stopped at convenience store in Walnut and saw this sign.
So sad Main Street sparse of any store fronts or restaurants and once was probably thriving.
An oasis found about 20 miles down the road a Golf Course with club house that we were able to get a cool drink. They were hosting a benefit golf tournament for the city we were heading to. Talked with Farmer who was golfing with his son. He was very interested in our journey it is always fun to talk to local.
Check out the new adornment to helmet called Da-Brim. Received just in time for our time through KS.
