Like a diamond in the rough, we stumbled upon the Knott County Historical Society B&B, only to find Dave, an eccentric home owner with many, many cats. I'm assuming the "Historical Society" part is for tax exemptions, but apparently he's the owner of it... what ever said "it" may be. In any case, we found this to be the perfect stop for the evening. After climbing up the ungodly steep hill to the B&B (without the first B), we were greeted by Dave and two ice cold sweet teas. We were soon joined by a couple from Framingham, MA. Chris and Chris. He's from London, she's from Vermont. They're a really nice couple and are riding non-touring bikes, but pulling B.O.B.'s, which are essentially trailers dragged behind the bike. Their blog can be followed here: http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/?o=3Tzut&doc_id=5336&v=2c. Jonathan and I had a great time getting to know them, sharing dog stories, and looking over each other's gear.
After a delicious pizza dinner, followed with an ice cream sundae, Jonathan and I headed to the greenhouse for some shut-eye. Along the way, we found a raccoon eating our leftover ice cream and Dave warned us with stories about poisonous snakes and how Kentucky is horrid with carrying anti-venom in local hospitals. Fun stuff! We plan on riding over the last mountainous area tomorrow and getting into Booneville for another well-earned rest. Sweet dreams!
