End of 7/18

I had a good time with my new friends last night. Lief was from europe and has spent the last few months riding through canada and now heads down through the states. Matt lives in montana and was just out for the weekend. Matt wound up at the campsite the same way I did. Out of time, out of luck, and welcomed with open arms by Leif.
We had a good time telling stories and comparing notes.
On a side note I broke one of the poles on my tent and was not sure what I was going to do about it. I made it work last night, but my fix was not going to last. So this morning I got on the web to see if the place I bought it from on the web had a brick and mortar some place close. With luck I found one that was right on my route. When I got there they told me the tent has been discontinued and they had no parts. Long face. Then they said they would give credit for a new tent. I left with a better tent and it cost me a total of $.07 that's right 7 cents. Back to smiling.
The rest of the ride today was hot hot hot. With a nice helping of construction zones. I was cooking. Finally I asked a road crew guy if there was some way around this mess and he showed me a way to head back into the mountains and avoid all the work zones, and I was off. In the end I decided to do indoor camping tonight as I'm heading into Canada tomorrow and I haven't had a shower in three days and they might not let me in. so a good night sleep and I'm off. When I'm in Canada I won't be posting as there is big charges from T mobil. So expect more in a few days.
Keep the comments coming.
