Im short on time on the libarary computer so i can type much, fiorst thanks for comming by abd reading about the nigfht in the pole shed with the animals it was and experiance letme tell you
Its been raining like sheets of water.. Today io climbed up Lolo pass not a great feat but about 6,000 ft maybe i had the triple header going head wind, rain and climb. averaged 4.5mph when i got to the top there was a visitor center with hot coffee I took cream with it... warmed up a bit and headed down the opther side Damn near frooze I had another dry set of cloiths but didnt want to put them on and have everything wet for when i stopped and found a place to camp.
The sun came out a bit and started to warm up and i remember saying AHHHH ! then for no good reason the raion came again very hard and pea sized hail i had to take shelter under a big tree where i sat and shivered thinking "I gotta be nuts" about that time a fellow who is a coolege proffessor stopped and asked some questions it turned out he was originally from wisconsin and now lives and teaches in Idaho erlier in the day he saw me pulling the grade up the pass and said i looked like it was nbo problem. I replied it is no problem to climb i just gear down and pedal and eventually i get to where i am going but this rain and cold is punnishing me. It was a meseriable weather today, but still great to be alive and be able top do this stuff.
After a while and a lot of conversation he drove off and i was back to face the cold wind again. i made it to a little town and decided to get out of the weather and into a room for the night . The weather man says one more day of cold rain out here then it should start to dry up... Sure hope he is right It looks like another copuple weeks to the coast i am looking foreword to riggins idaho its a recreational paradise with rafting and great fishing. It all goes right the next stop i would be Zims hot srpings and camp there.
Oh before i forget i stopped in LoLo to visit RC's mother in law we had a nice chat then i rode on thanks RC for the cntact. I got more pics to get developed and posted soon
