Made it to Dumas (not "Dina's", as autocorrect would have you believe). Camping's free in the city park, but I'm hunting for a shower. 95f and really windy, but I'm holding to the average mileage I have to make to get to CA. Stranger walked up to me at gas station and asked "Did you earn that marine corps shirt you're wearing?" When I said I did, he handed me a folded $20 bill. Said it was to say thanks and to help with my trip. Just, wow. That just undoes all the times people come up at a gas station to ask for money.
