Massey. She avenged the death of her brother by shooting the gentlemen who shot her brother; in the mid 1800’s this was quite unheard of. This entire story is worth googling! I then continued north and connected with X61 to see a little more of the river and then found G62 and followed that west into Wappello. I stopped at a little bar where the people were pleasant and guided me down the street to Wooster’s. I am thankful that they did! Wooster’s is an unassuming ”biker” bar. Owned by a rider and filled with cool people. Strangely after hearing so many people talk about the county being shaped like a toilet, I happened to sit down next to the county sanitation engineer! He had some great knowledge about the area, was retired military, and just an all around great guy to visit with. One very beautiful thing to me is that Wooster’s actually has Old Milwaukee Light. Don’t judge, I can’t help it, it reminds me of my dad. The day was getting on in time and I had the Thunder Roads Christmas Party to attend, so it was time to bid my time in Louisa County adieu. I found Hwy 61 and scooted north right out of the county. Whenever I am touring a county along the river I know that it is going to be beautiful, the roads are going to twist and turn, and the views will take your breath away. What I don’t always know is if the people will be interesting and willing to chat. The interesting people of Louisa County were out in spades on that January day, seems lady luck was on my side! Next month I am in Central Iowa, looking forward to my time in Lucas County. Maybe the snow will be gone, but I doubt it. Stay warm, spring is almost here.
