Walkin'

As I write this I’m sitting at a picnic table on the corner of Main and Market Street in St. Genevieve, Mo.
Sabra and I are on our eighth annual two-week bicycle trip. Last year we went to Germany, and prior to that Wisconsin, Minnesota and Missouri.
This year’s trip started in Alton, Ill. I chose it because it is midway between two places we wanted to visit: St. Louis and Pere Marquette State Park.
