So because I detoured to see Gene Bell, I had set myself up for a longer drive than I planned. So I stopped that night at hotel 40 miles South of Des Monies. Then I drove about 360 miles to Augusta, KS to spend the night with my cousin Julie Barth and her her husband Richard. We had a great time catching up and playing games on our phones against each either. I got up early ( for me) and finished the drive to 630 miles to my home in San Antonio. So I made it!
My Cousin Julie with our mutual Grand Father, Emerson Cruckson. Update. Emerson was the father of my mother and Julies Father.
