Problem solving has become a part of the daily routine for Jeff and Karen. One problem they couldn't solve was how Karen would follow Jeff to Booneville when all roads leading there were impassable with the van and trailer. Thus, Jeff saddled up his bicycle with an overnight bag and sought alternate accommodations for the night of May 17. That's how he found Linda. Linda runs the Victorian Rose Inn in Booneville. She converted a 1915 church into her home. The building originally had no electricity or plumbing. Linda offers a room for rent to Trans America Trail cyclists passing through the area. The house is an eclectic mix of her own artwork and collected items. Linda is originally from Cincinnati, she moved to Booneville in 1995 with her late husband and says she is still considered an outsider. In addition to being a one room innkeeper, Linda is also a gardener and a painter.
