Rest Day #1

Not much to report today except I very much enjoyed having Dan here with me. Very much.

We found a laundromat last night so didn’t have to deal with laundry today other than folding the cycling clothes that had the chance to dry overnight and repacking stuff.

So our main chores today were shopping at a bike shop (of course) and a drug store (gotta restock on drugs).

Then we found a small city park with a paved trail that circled the park. It was not a large park so we walked around three times. We were told to do something physical today so our bodies don’t rebel tomorrow.

Since we’d spent the night at a motel in Nampa rather than staying with the rest of the group, we drove to the group’s motel to put my new seat bag on the bike which had spent the night in Barb’s room. That required moving my tail light so it could still be seen.

As Dan worked on the light, he quickly realized my multi-tool needed to be tightened so the various tools weren’t so loose. I didn’t know it could be tightened or needed to be tightened. Having an intelligent, experienced man around is a big help! Finding the maintenance man at the motel walking down the hall was serendipity – he was able to get us a better tool to get the light adjusted and he tightened the multi-tool for me.

Looking forward to a sushi dinner tonight (big smile).

Tomorrow we head from Boise to Mountain Home, Idaho. Only a few miles over 50.



female, married, in love, beautiful grown daughters, great and large extended family spread all over the US, enjoying my life, my favorite place to be is outside (unless its cold and wet).
