A Place to Sleep in Sugar City   7 comments


10 November 2013

Yesterday I hitchhiked from Shoshone to Idaho Falls, Idaho.  I was at the library in I.F. for an hour and then I headed north on U.S. 20.  I got a couple of rides to Rexburg and then I had to walk five or six miles to Sugar City.

I went to this convenience store in Sugar City to get something to drink.  I met this lady there and we got to talking.  I told her that I had been hitchhiking a number of years.

She exclaimed, “You’re hitchhiking in this weather?!  It’s cold outside!”

I said, “I usually find a place to sleep.  I slept in a junked pickup just west of Shoshone last night.”

She said, “You can sleep in my barn, if you want.”

So I walked to her place and took a look at the barn.  I stacked several straw bales together to lay my sleeping bag on.  I slept there last night and stayed warm.  I think it got down to 32 degrees F.

The Lord always helps me find some interesting place to sleep.  The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof (Psalm 24: 1).
