In The Middle Of A Parking Lot

36 down, 329 to go. In Des Moines.


Another first happened today. Here's the setup: the RV has been in the same place for 24 hours in the parking lot of Walmart in the Des Moines area. It's been pouring rain the whole time - El Nino has definitely come to Iowa. And I'm inside keeping warm talking to a friend who's visiting and suddenly there's a knock on the door. We're in the middle of the parking lot of Walmart and it's raining outside and there's a knock on the door!

Well, the only thing to do was to open it! And there, standing in the rain was the nice man in the photo. "Do you sell that book here? Can I buy one?" We invited him in and he explained that he was going to Walmart and saw the motorhome and stopped, and went online to our website and watched both videos there and got out of his car and knocked on the door to get the book.

He's the first - a few days in and someone knocked on the door looking for the book in the middle of a parking lot. What will happen when we actually get some press? This could get interesting!

Today in a very wet Des Moines. Wonderful people here. Tomorrow the same (but hopefully the rain will end or we may need to turn the RV into an ark).
