A couple of days ago I hitchhiked from Reed Point, Montana to Selby, South Dakota. From Reed Point I got three rides to Billings. I was walking just east of Billings when I got a ride all the way to Selby.
This guy's name was Corey and he was from Ashley, North Dakota. We took I-94 to Miles City and then took U.S. 12 through southwest North Dakota. We stopped in Lemmon, South Dakota where Corey bought me supper at a Chinese restaurant.
Corey was a Christian and we had a good talk about the things of God. We talked a little about the Book of Revelation and I told him that I thought that Isaac Penington had the best interpretation on some of the things written in Revelation. I told Corey that he should read Penington's "Babylon the Great" for a better understanding on the Book of Revelation.
We drove through Standing Rock Indian Reservation in north central South Dakota and then he dropped me off in Selby on U.S. 83.
Corey and his wife have a business called The Legends of Africa; his wife is originally from Kenya. They sell products like Shea Butter, soap and other things. Corey gave me a small container of Shea Butter, which was a blessing because my hands were cracked and sore from the dry, western climate that I hitchhike in. I put some of the Shea Butter on my hands, and within twenty-four hours, the soreness was virtually gone. Now forty-eight hours later, there is no soreness. My hands are healing up very well. I am very grateful.
After Corey dropped me off in Selby, I walked all over town looking for a junkyard so that I could crawl into a junked vehicle and get some sleep. It was not cold, but the ground was wet and muddy. I didn't want to set up my tent on the wet ground--and there was still a lot of snow in some places. I finally walked to this gas station and talked to the lady that worked there and she said that I could sleep in the cafe. I slept on the floor of the cafe that night and then headed to Pierre, South Dakota the next morning.
