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).
