Amtrak didn't want to let us on the train because there is no cargo space on Hoosier State train line. The station superviser tried to deny us boarding. Luckily, my persistence and the train conductor's kindness helped us find a spot for two big bike boxes in the coach. We slept soundly from eight till midnight, squeezed into small uncomfortable seats.

There is a hostel in Indianapolis that you could easily mistake for a cozy bed-and-breakfast. Emily called ahead and the gentleman running the hostel gave her the access code to the back door. We tiptoed in at 2:30am and fell asleep on the couches in the living room. We woke up at six and decided to leave a note and some money in the kitchen. Hopefully we'll come back some day to meet that gentleman face-to-face.

I don't think we'll make it to the Ohio border today. It's over 70 miles and we're getting a late start. We seem to be good at late starts...
