TRIP 2008

Update #15 - June 23rd
Chester, Montana
4796 miles (7674 KM)

This is the tenth update from the road. It has been over two weeks since I've been able to post an update. I'm not sure when the next time will be but I will take any opportunity that I can get on the web to try and update this website as often as I can.

Nothing really has changed with the status of the laptop. It wasn't repaired or replaced. Since the time the screen got broken, I was able to use the laptop a couple of times when I've been able to plug in another monitor. A couple of days ago, the laptop finally died. I hated to lose it but there was nothing that I could do. It would have cost more money to get it repaired than what it was worth.

The past two weeks have been a blur. I've been flying eastward even though I crossed the Rocky Mountains several days ago. Crossing Stevens Pass (4,040 feet) was Western Washington was a little hard but I made it most of the way pedaling except for one small section where I had to go through an area where they were cleaning up a rock slide. I didn't stop for any long time in Leavenworth, Washingon . It was just a little too touristy for me. I made it from Seattle to Spokane in a little over five days in cycling. On the last day of my 51st year, I did almost 122 miles between Coulee City and Spokane Valley. I camped out along the Centennial Bike Trail about 10 miles from the Idaho State Line.

My 52nd birthday was pretty good. I rode from Spokane Valley, WA to Sagle, Idaho and camped a few miles south of Sandpoint. From Sandpoint, I got on ID and MT 200 to Plains, Montana where I headed north through the Flathead Indian Reservation to Kalispell, Montana where I got back on U.S. 2. The ride through the southern edge of Glacier National Park and over Marias Pass (5,210 feet) went well. I'm flying eastward along U.S. 2 heading towards Williston, North Dakota. I'm a little under 400 miles away to Williston.

I did have a neat encounter with someone this year. About three years ago in Michigan, I met up with Rev. Carol Cruise who is walking the perimeter of the United States with a ministry called "Faith Walk US". She is a right leg amputee. I met her today halfway between Chester and Shelby, Montana. She hopes to be in the Seattle, Washington area by the end of September. A link to her website is
HERE . Nothing much else to write about. I'm hoping to find some way that I could post another update around the end of this month.
