‘Ride To Francis’: Day 2

By Dave Christi

Thurs., May 23rd. KSU at 9:00 AM ET. 
Today's trip started out in Clarion, Pa., more or less uneventful. Very cloudy and windy and cooler than yesterday. In fact, even though I headed south today, the temps got cooler. Did I mention the wind ;-? It definitely kept me on my toes. Also, the high amount of truck traffic and the record number of road construction sites kept me pretty busy ;-(.

One thing of note was a conversation I had with a local guy from Ohio. I was just finishing filling my tank when this guy came up to me and asked where I was from. I then proceeded to tell him about Ride To Francis. Well, he must have thought it was a worthwhile endeavour because after stopping in the convenience store, he came out and gave me a donation. I thanked him and thought how amazing that a total stranger would be moved to donate. I'll always remember that moment.
