Been catching up reading of your adventures. Sounds as though you've had some challenges along the way. Wow, getting sprayed by a skunk! I remember being up north in Hayward I think it was, and our dog, Snoopy or Buttons got sprayed by a skunk. We bathed her in Tomatoe Juice. Do you remember that?
Those were the days, hey. Glad you're in WI enjoying the colors and fall weather. Hope it stays sunny for you. Enjoy the remainder of your trip, you are doing great, anyone that has gone through the back surgery that you went thru and can ride cross country is truly an amazing human being.!!!! I am so proud of you and greatly inspired by all you do. Stay strong, Stay Safe and have fun. (Any one that meets you along the road is truly lucky to have crossed your path) Take Care, Love, BetteXXOO
