Annawan, Illinois

four miles of asphalt after ninety miles of gravel. we found a grocery store after running out of fruit & hunky-monkey vegan energy bars. we are hungry and ready for showers.

we should mention the amazing people and places we have confronted in our travels thus far...

+ NUTRALICIOUS BAKING COMPANY!!! they gave us vegan donuts for our trip. (they were the flame!)

+ Joey, the proprietor of an Italian restaurant in Joliet who fed is the most amazing pasta. he wouldn't let us pay! and he gave us a bag of bread and biscotti.

+ the man relaxing in his backyard with a beer in a beer cozy. we took a break from the I&M trail to eat lunch (leftover pasta) and he came up to chat with us. his daughter brought us orange juice.

+ George, a man in Utica, Illinois with hundreds of wood carvings in a little shack off of the trail. he waved to us and we ended up spending half an hour with him. a photo on the way...

we must be off. thirty more miles till Moline.
-nic & emily.
