So after a good night in Cold Spring CG camped with some young bicyclists on their way across country, I headed off at 7:30 AM without coffee to get a jump on what promised to be a hot day....
I had a good ride until just after Reno and the ride up the pass....Here is the post I put up on Yahoo and CRL...:
well time to make an admission....shamefacedly... Dina and I got
absolutely blasted with cold rain coming over the Sierras and since
there is a lot of construction on I-90 over the pass, I wasn't able to
get ready for rain and batten all hatches....I did finally get the rain
gear on, the cover on the sidecar and then rode for literally hours with
both boots full of cold water, gloves soaking wet and cold and a stupid
tinted dark smoke face shield .....it got us by surprise!
that is the lead up to the admission of a night in Motel Six in Oroville, CA to dry off and get warm again. It works good for that...LOL
the bonus to a dry night is that when I was walking Dina Dog, I
discovered Taquiria Estrella! A little store front taco joint...20
years in the same spot and if there is one thing I like as well or
better than my Arrey Cafe Huevos Rancheros Rojo, are "street tacos"
carne asada and/or carnitas! I polished off 4 and am a happy, very
grateful ol' dry phart!
We'll see what tomorrow brings for route...not Fort Bragg like I originally thought it would be.
OK, now back to the weather channel....
