We are somewhere. Somewhere nice. Cindy drove 60 miles to pick us up alongside the road and bring us to their cabin in Sandpoint, ID. Shower, laundry, great dinner, and several Budweisers! Talk about trail magic!
Today was one of our easier days thus far. Pretty good climb for half the day but it wasn’t ridiculously steep like the passes.
Took a little more time to check out the scenery like this waterfall.
If you have followed along with me before, you know one of my favorite things is a chair with a back. Check. Also notice the helmet hair. 3 basically corn rows that are starting to become a regular thing…even post-shower. Maybe if I carried a comb that would help.
Probably should have had a Budweiser in hand but when you have 30 more miles of riding to do, it’s really not prudent. Look at me, I may be becoming an adult!
We have been taking pics of American flags along the way. I plan on a bonus edition for July 4th of flags on display like this. I think it will be kind of cool.
We stopped today with 60 miles left to Sandpoint. Those 60 miles should be relatively easy because we’ll be slack packing. Cindy will drive us out to where she picked us up this afternoon. Our saddle bags will stay at cabin because we’ll be back there tomorrow afternoon.
This will give me a good indication of how my bike legs are. Before leaving FL, I didn’t ride with the 25 lbs of weight on the back that I’ve had for past week. Curious to see the difference as I won’t have them tomorrow. Pretty sure it will be significant.
If I failed to mention, the cabin is pretty nice!!
Fingers are still a bit odd. Not much strength in them at end of day. Had trouble plugging my charger into phone this evening. Mostly my right hand. Fortunately I’m right handed. It’s also the predominant brake hand when flying down hills.
Hoping to crush the remaining 60 miles in time to watch most of US Open final round.
