Hello Fans, Friends and Family

Thursday, May 20th:  Today I cycled 90 miles from Valentine, NE to Dunning, NE.  Along the way we stopped at Nebraska National Forest.  There are actually two separate units of the National Forest.  The one we were at is near Halsey and has 22,000 acres of hand-planted trees on over 90,000 acres of land.  The other one is near Nenzel, NE and has 2300 acres of hand-planted trees on over 116,000 acres of land.  We went up to the look-out tower, but no one was there so we couldn’t go up to the top.  We were, however,  able to get a good view of the forest below from where we were.  Near the entrance, they had some nice looking lilacs in bloom.  They also have a nursery where they start the trees from seedlings and nurture them until they are ready to be transplanted into the forest.  Just as we were arriving in Dunning, noticed a young lady working on her bicycle.  Went over to see if I could help.  She had as bike trailer with a young child in it.  The bike trailer had come loose from the bike and she was trying to get it back on.  Another neighbor, Pastor Lee Wonch, had come over with some tools.  She had quick release levers so the tools were not necessary.  Pastor Lee and I got the trailer back on but in so doing noticed that the springs on the axle were missing.  Pastor Lee told us where we could park.  A little later he came over to check on us.  He and Judy got to talking and found they knew a lot of the same people.  I checked my bike parts and found some axle springs for him to take back to the young lady.  Tomorrow we are planning on heading into Judy’s hometown, Callaway, NE.  Until then . . .
