Day 9

Found my second wind yesterday. Beautiful weather and scenery and almost no rain. After a good lunch at "The Grill", in Springfield, I took the scenic route to Pickstown, next to Lake Francis Case and Ft. Randall Dam. I enjoyed a conversation with a local Native American couple who were concerned I was lost. Then a gentleman struck up a conversation as he passed me on a hill. He just slowed to my pace and he told me about this guy he met who kayaked across America (don't worry, Marilyn).

Had a small glitch with my odometer, but my current mileage is around 610.

Today's goal is Academy, SD.
