Hank the Tank
We finally got to the front door to be greeted by Dorris and she invited us into her house to take shelter from the lightening storm. We talked with Dorris and played with her cat to pass the time during the storm, she even made us some food as the lightening persisted.
When it looked like it had cleared up (around 6pm) we checked the weather channel to discover that there was only going to be a brief break in the storm and scattered thunderstorms were going to continue all night. Dorris and her husband invited us to stay the night, take showers and she washed our dirty laundry for us. She let us help ourselves to some breakfast in the morning and left us with some provisions for the road ahead.
She is a great example of the awesome people we're running into on this trip.
