Act II: The amazing thing is the next morning I woke up, got ready and headed to the same establishment to eat breakfast. Place my order with Curt (the same gentleman that took my order yesterday) and another person stepped in to cover my meal. I looked at Curt as he replied "I can't believe it". I thanked the person while thinking, "I like this is reverse conspiracy".
Act III: The next day, now on the West side of Richmond I stopped a different restaurant, but same chain to order breakfast, before starting The Cardinal Greenway path. I kid you not... An older gentleman, who was once a hiker and saw my "NY to LA" sign down the road, covered my meal again! I officially love Richmond, Indiana!!! Three times in a row having my meals paid for, that goes to show you there is a lot of love in that town.
