Day 25, Mile 996 to 1040

Day​ 25 44 miles to Eminence MO. Finally found the hills to make me walk. 13% grade early in the climb and it doesn't let up til the top. Three more just the same tomorrow so plenty of time to learn how to ride them. Only planning 27 miles tomorrow.

Found barn quilts on a very small barn in Houston MO!

Waitress in Ruby's Family restaurant suggested the food bar with catfish prepared two different ways. She said the food bar was good if you like seafood. Not a bad place and it filled up before I left. Lot's of seafood lovers in Eminence.
