The rains pushed us into Marshfield late in the day. We escaped for a brief time at Olanna's cafe in Springfield. We had a second breakfast that carried us down the road.

(neither of us could remember if I handed him his credit card or if he put it in his wallet...) Thats when we knew we needed back up.
