After a nice rest day, i was up and ready to go by a record so far of 6.30am. The plan was to get to the Washington/Idaho border in two days, so today would end somewhere in between. The day started with a climb to around 1700 feet, following this was a nice long down hill through the pleasant little town of Waitsburg. Following this was Dayton, a possible destination for the day, but i had made good progress and it was still only around 9am, So i continued. The riding was really nice, even better than the previous days, with frequent shade and low temperatures. I arrived in Pomeroy at around 12 having already completed nearly 70 miles. I was feeling pretty good and even considered trying to complete the 30 miles left of Washington. I had some lunch, looked at the map and decided against it. The last 30 miles includes a pretty big hill that stretches for 8 miles, trying to climb it in the hottest part of the day didn’t appeal to me. So i started looking for places to stay. I decided i would head down to a campground about a mile outside town. It seemed fine so i set up. I sat in a little hut to check the next maps, when i realised that there was a couple of bee’s around, then there was a couple more, i soon discovered 3 separate hives. I got out of these fast. I headed back to town and sat in a restaurant for most of the day, i spent an average of $1 an hour, they were nice about it. Not a long day tomorrow but a hill to start, i set up camp and went to bed. I didn’t take many pictures today so i thought i would put some of the bike up.
