Today hasn’t been kind to the Sidekick, so y’all are going to get a big brain dump sometime tomorrow. 😉
I’m in Alturas tonight, in the same Super 8 that we stayed at last October on the Sport-Touring.net ride. Hopefully there won’t be ice on my bike again tomorrow morning. 😉
The Black Bear diner next door just underwent a change of management and hasn’t gotten their liquor license renewed, so I had to go to the local liquor store for my beer fix. Now I’m hanging out in the hotel room, futzing around online while drinking a beer and watching Law & Order. It’s like I never left home! 😉
I played leapfrog with a group of cruiser riders this evening. I assumed they were part of a tour group as some of them had matching luggage, and I overheard them at a gas station and thought I heard a foreign accent. Anyway, they wound up at the Super 8, too, and I got to chatting with one of the men. It turns out they didn’t have an accent — they’re all deaf. They were all riding to a deaf group’s annual rally that was up in southern Oregon over the weekend. Very cool!
Home tomorrow. 🙂
