Today we were reminded, again, how many truly nice people there are in the world. We were trying to figure out how to get to church, but what was more difficult was getting to Ontario---80 miles away---after church. 9000 people, we were told, live in Baker City. We were, also, told that they have more cattle than people. Not exactly a cab driving mecca. Our options were to either take a very expensive taxi ride, or the Greyhound bus which would arrive in Ontario at 9:50pm---which is about two hours past our current bedtime. (I'm not even kidding about that either). I had been texting my friend Anne and mentioned our predicament. Well, lo and behold, she has a cousin in Baker City! She hooked us up with Lyle. He drove us to Ontario after church and he picked us up at the motel to take us to church. Wow! He had never met us before. He barely got word last night that we needed help. Very cool! And to make it even better, he taught us about ranching as we drove. He owns a beautiful ranch in an area we rode through yesterday, and was just the nicest, most pleasant person you could ever meet. Thanks Anne! Thanks Lyle!
Back on the road tomorrow.
