The best part was Medicine Lake; a jewel snuggled atop the crater of the largest shield volcano in the lower 48. Followed by arguably the best downhill ride to the highway- some 20 miles with just a few soits requiring the rider to pedal. I want to come back and explore!
Day miles =145.4
MaxS = 40.1 (whoo hoo!)
AveS = 28.7
Trip Time = 5:03:56
Total OD = 708.0
Start V = 63.3, End = 56.9
However - I stopped twice to charge; a story waiting to be told! I promise to backfill.
Room: Staying at the Charm Motel; $79/nite. They were nearly booked out. I've stayed here before at the Green Gables which is managed by the same company.
OK - so that's me, sweaty and smelly; off to the shower, then food!

texting can be funny too...
Anyway, why care whether someone sees if you're getting a charge? It's not as if you're stealing or loitering So did you get a tattoo & become a brother of the harley-cycling hood? At least they didn't hassle you, which could be pretty freaky with Harley decibels next to you on the road.

If your tendon is sore kind of on the outside back of the knee, you are probably hyper extending. Lower your seat a little. It takes a while to heal from this kind of injury, but you should notice a difference relatively quickly. I hope this helps!

1. Do not pack those little packages of honey from Denny's cos they like to explode
2. Do not pack overipe bananas in the same bag as the water/Gatorade cos they want to get squishy cuddly with everything else.

As anticipated I did not have Inet service at my Unc's. The last trek was awesome and written down for backfill. I am now in Quincy, CA heading towards our family summer property near Johnsville. The is no Inet service there either. It might be a few days before I reach a pc - probably Sunday or Monday.
Lots of stories, fun, BEER, and more fun to share.
Gots to go now and catch that tailwind, KF

My Unc and Bro are coming up to the property Friday so - won't be leaving here till Sunday at the soonest. The trek will take me south on Hwy 89 through Truckee and South Lake Tahoe till I hit Hwy 88 which I'll take over the Sierras down to Pioneer for a couple of days.
After that I am going on to Fresno via Hwy 49 to Oakhurst then Hwy 41 south. Ithink the next Friday the plan is to head to Santa Cruz, Luke. Then SF after that -but I needs to check the calendar to be sure.
Anyways it's time to head to Cuccia's for dinner in Mohawk
I'll check in again if we come into town before I leave.
Cheers all! KF
