Not much to say about early yesterday. First I walked a loop around downtown Nashville, then I headed south toward Brentwood. After about 10 miles, a Toyota SUV with 3 college-aged guys stopped. They offered me a ride the last couple miles to REI and bought me a meal at Chick-Fil-A, where I also met 2 of their friends. They're students at Lipscomb, a Christian college. Very cool guys. They didn't ask me if I know Christ, nor did they try to introduce me to Christ; they simply did something nice for me. In other words, they DWJWD, as opposed to driving around with a WWJD plate, not doing anything nice for anyone. They certainly earned my respect, for that and other reasons. --> I spent a couple hours at REI last night, picking up some things I need, like ripstop tape to fix the floor of my tent. REI employees are awesome! Everyone is helpful and knowledgeable. The guys are cool and the
gals are sweethearts. Even though REI won't sponsor me, I'm happy to promote them in some small way.
