One thought on “About Us

  1. Hi!
    My name is Kathy Frees and my mom is Nancy Turner who attends the Linden Methodist Church. I have a woman I know (retired Lutheran Pastor) who does a lot of hiking. This spring she is hiking across Iowa. Sunday the 19th she will be in Linden staying with us at my moms. The next day we will hike from Linden to two miles north of Yale and I will bring her back to mom’s to stay Monday night. She usually tents along the way. The route she takes for the American Discovery Trail will be taking her North of Yale to Herndon and then on up to E63 to take into Coon Rapids. She was told this area is pretty open, will not go through any towns, and not sure who might live along E63. I was looking to see if their might be anyone that you might know that would like to help her out by offering to pick her up from the trail to camp in their yard, or something. My phone number is 319-936-9333. I will be meeting her for the first time when she stays at my mom’s, and she is a delightful lady. Thanks much for your time. I have left my email for my phone if someone wants to contact me. Thank you again, Sincerely Kathy Frees
