Sandpoint 0 Miles.  The last rest day of the trip.  Now 9 more riding days to Seattle 


I tried to sleep in but with the one hour time change we still were up at 5 a.m. pacific time.  I laid back down but sleep would not return.

We went to the closest restaurant that opened at 7:00 a.m.  We were at the door at 6:50 waiting.  Of course we were the first thru the door but within 10 minutes there were around 8 to 10 table full of customers.  We were amazed how fast the restaurant filled up.

The food was very good and we decided we would stop there tomorrow morning since we only have a 30 mile ride.  I guess this is to make up for the hard ride yesterday.

Then of course we had the standard chores, laundry, shopping, bike store sporting goods store and exploring the new city.

After laundry I worked in an hour nap.

This evening an alumni is bring a pull pork dinner.  This is always well received.

It is amazing on rest days how everything slows down even our walking.  We know we have plenty of time so our gate is slower and our steps shorter.  I guess you would call that conserving energy.

There will not be any more conservation days until August 5 when third BiketheUSrorMS is finished.  It is coming fast.
