Really got lucky with the tire. The first place I called had one. Not the style I would pick if I was back in Coldspring, and ordering off the internet, but it’s the right size and I’m 3,000 miles from home.
Got it installed and we were on the road before 12:00 noon. Rides and handles pretty good. Hope it last till I’m back in Texas.
Today we rode 440 miles after getting the tire, and got into Fort Nelson about 7:30 PM local time. We are now on Pacific Time, and 2 hour behind Texas time. Both the Colonel and I are beat.
It rained off and on for much of the trip, and the rain gear strategy worked pretty well; put it on and it’ll stop raining. But the temperature dropped from 72 to 59 and stayed that cold for about 2 hours – burrrr.
Along the way we saw two black bears. One was pretty small and we did ‘t get a picture; however, the second one was full grown, maybe 400 lbs. He was eating berries and paid no attention to us. Bears like berries.
Tomorrow it off to Watson Lake and the Sign Post Village.
