Title for the day: Hello Indiana!
Today I started my walk by taking a ferry across the Ohio river, back into Ohio. From here I stopped to get something to eat at the United Dairy Farmers mini mart, it started raining outside (similar to a 7/11 in the west coast). Had a tuna sandwich, doughnut, and coffee, it was delicious. Walked about 10 miles and had a three dollar lunch at McDonalds then continued on. Passed the Henry William Harrison tomb, took pictures, read signage, and then continued.
Trail went up a big hill that over looked the Ohio river, I gazed at aww of the giant tow boat that came powering by. Trail dipped back down and followed the little miami river where it crossed. As soon as I passed the bridge I started to rain and then progressed into a lightening storm right after. I came to the end of my directions for Ohio and it left me without knowing my next turn, so I got cover underneath a torn out gas station shelter and looked at my next states papers, Indiana!
Walked into the state of Ohio over the state line. Their was a restaurant to the the right of me and also the state line inn. I kept walking, pee'd behind a water reclaiming plant (which I thought was the best place around to piss), and checked out some near by train tracks for a good place to sleep.
Instead of finding a place to camp for the night, when I came over the tracks mound, I found right in front of me down a hill a cinema. yess!
I have been wanting to go see the new star trek film but haven't had a chance to go. This was perfect, being that it was right next to the tracks (which did have some places to rest for the night).
So I went in got my ticket and sat down at some tables for the movie to start. That's where I'm writing this now :-)
Realized while waiting for the movie to start that the cute cashier discounted my ticket, awesome!
Movie was great, slept in a field right out side of the movie theater, the ground was really bumpy with small needle type plants, but I managed to find a little spot to set up my tent and lay out my pad, where it all contoured my body.
I slept using one of the small needle plants (cut to avoid harming my gear by my knife) as a natural pillow, it was great.
