After another couple of days in Texas oil-land and steer country we crossed the 40 day mark. John did so with a bit of a bang and covered 43 miles for the day. He followed that day up with a 41 mile day and is feeling stronger as the journey continues forward. At the urging of his crew, John has increased his daily caloric and protein intake.
While we were passing though Van Horn, TX, the folks at the Hampton Inn were kind and very generous. So much so that they put us up for two nights pro gratis! The staff was outstanding and if you’re ever in the area make sure to stay at the Hampton Inn of Van Horn, TX. Please ask for Holly Bailey when checking in. Holly is the General Manager and a simply warm and loving person. A couple other staff members you want to say hello to are Natasha Brewster, Paul the Maintenance Engineer and Melinda. Natasha Brewster is a newly expecting mom-to-be and if she lets you maybe you can rub her belly! Paul always has a smile on his face and Melinda is a friendly soul. Overall, a great crew at Hampton Inn of Van Horn. Oh, and no worries if you are travelling with your pets as the hotel is pet friendly! Bella gave two paws up!
