Expertise at outrunning dogs is Jeff's hidden talent.  On May 23, he only had to outpace four.  His ride from Madrid to Utica, KY was pleasant after a severe thunderstorm the day before.  The terrain in far western Kentucky is changing.  Miles and miles of cornfields.  Pedaling into Fordsville, KY, Jeff stopped at the Marathon Mini Mart to grab a cold drink.  Inside, he met James Earle or "Jimmy."  Jimmy is 45 and has lived in Fordsville all his life.  He is an artist, and his work lines the walls of the mini mart, with the consent and encouragement of the owners.
