Day 40

Monday, 12/5/11:              3 miles    2,782 total

I left Snyder this morning, with a goal of making it to Roby or Anson, Texas, but only made my way to a truck stop about three miles out of town.  The temp was in the high 20's, with horizontal snow, because the wind was blowing 15 to 20 mph.  I got the thumb out in a very good location, but after several hours I, literally, had to give up.  I was so sure I would get a ride here!  It is so cold; why wouldn't someone stop and give a old man a ride?  I don't know, but it didn't come to pass today.  I was determined to get a ride, but gave up when I couldn't stop shivering and started to show signs of hypothermia.  I decided to dip into the savings account and get a room and thaw out.  I’m not going to do anyone any good if I get real sick.  Tomorrow will be a better day!  The sign behind the tree says "Git-R-Done".  That didn't happen for me today.
