Gotta kill some time. Too early to go back to camp we decide to continue riding northish of Bovill. As we were riding through town I spotted this TW in the City Park. To try and get the owners attention, we stopped in the park at a water faucet to get water and see if the owner comes out of the camper to talk. Turns out he/she wasn't home as I spotted this TW on a hitch carrier all loaded up to go home on our return back thru town.
We have a situation. As we headed back to camp we noticed Mrs. Admiral's rear tire was getting softer than we wanted. We weren't that far from camp and tried to baby the TW back. It was getting too soft to ride and I didn't want the tire to separate from the rim so with about 7 miles to go, Mrs. Admiral stopped roadside and I went back for an air pump and spare tire.
I get back and air up here tire to give it a go. It worked and we headed back.
Fires everywhere! With so many fires near and far throughout the Pacific Northwest and B.C. Canada, our moon was a little dim orange as we got close to sleepy time.
I've been robbed! The next morning I discover a bear or most likely a chipmunk has gotten into my tank bag and illegally absconded with my cachews from the day before. I should have known. Chipmunks have been after me since my Chipmunk road ride a few weeks ago.
It was time for another scout mission with the XT before camp started stirring for the day.
I was onto something. Here is a "non-factory" made ATV cattle guard pass through. Found an ATV trail for future exploring, bonus! Can you hear the banjos now?
XT200 has a 6-volt electrical system. I haven't found a replacement yet. Or did I? Nothing like a little "Metal Plate Duck Tape" to make it look good. I like it!
Well that about does it for this adventure. I liked the neighbors truck and had to get a photo
And got a little artsy.
Smoke everywhere. Top of Lewiston Hill looking down into the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley. Took this on the way home from camp
And when I got home...
this is what caused the leaking tire.
Till next time.
