Eminence MO to Hartville 80 Miles

As usual breakfast around 6:15 a.m. and on the road before 7:00 a.m.

Charlie has ridden this route before so at about 5 miles out we stopped at a park to checkout the old Mill. It was beautiful and well worth the time.


When we got back on the road my legs were tired and a little sore after our 90 mile day yesterday. Some of it may have been psychological.

Our second rest stop was in (no kidding) Houston in the County of Texas. This was the largest town of the day (population 2,084). There wasn’t a 610 Loop, Beltway 8 or Grand Parkway. Just a good place to grab a bite to eat and then back on the road.

Tonight we are camping at the Hartville City Park. We are definitely roughing it here. No water in the park except for the women and men’s restroom for the toilets only. No sinks.

One resourceful member of the team found a water faucet by the only business in the area and next to the street so most of us used it to clean up a little.

The one redeeming feature of the park was the view of pond and surrounding hills.
