26 miles to go. Passing through Edgewood. Gotta get here early to get the pie at Trinity United Methodist Church. We’re tired, but pumped as we approach a part of the state called the Switzerland of Iowa.

We’re spending this night at the Winnebago Area Boy Scout camp in Waverly. Off to Independence in the morning: 67 miles away.

The good and bad, the up and the down, and everything from a frosty shoulder to the shirt off our backs.

Well, if this isn’t just quite the little ditty.
