8/05 end of the day

Finally I'm off the boat. I had to go to two suzuki dealers to find a tire but in the end I'm on new shoes. Man that feels good. I finally got out of town and found a wonderful road wa20  just south of bellingham and headed east. It turned out to be an awesome road. I stopped at a national park and met up with a guy from new york and we road to the top of hart pass. A ranger told me about it earlier in the day and it was impressive. The road up was all dirt, about 20 miles of it. On one side was a sheer rock wall and on the other a sheer rock cliff. We made it to about 1/2 mile from the top and were stopped by snow. It wasn't alot but it covered the road with about a foot for a good 100 yards. There was no way to get through. As a mater of fact when we got there we had to help a guy and his wife get there 4X4 un stuck. She was pissed and already saying I told you so. But we got him out and all was right with their world. After we got down we split up, he was of to canada and I was headed east. As night started to fall every campground I found was full, I finally found a KOA and set up in the dark. It's nice to have dark, but one more hour of daylight would have been nice. It feels good to be on the road again. I'm currently in a town called winthrop, WA. I have no idea what's going on here, but it's big. The place is packed. Tomorrow I head east again, and closer to home every day.
Oh one other thing, I almost don't want to mention, but I was hot for the first time in weeks, it felt great but I can feel the complaining about the heat coming on.
So the end of my birthday and I'm tired, happy and ready for bed.
