Our hotel, Ala Cozy Motel, was a sweet little piece of comfort with a cool neon past and present of Americana with a fairly new owner, Karen. She was so accommodating. Great stay.
A nice group roll out with more awe inspiring vastness as we went.

We were making pretty good time and had to slow down because in Wilbur, WA we were stopping for Billy’s Burgers. The operator would have dinner for us tonight.
Great early lunch and on we went. I had a strange sound and sensation while riding after lunch break. A weird sound and a couple puffs of air on the inside of my left calf. I kept on going and noticed a little later the rear tire was soft. This is the e motor rear wheel wheel that is bolted to the frame. Rich came up while I was reading the frame to change the tire and he was a huge help. I had everything in the bike bag to do the job including a spare tire. I got the change half way done including removing the wheel and saw the big cut into the tire. Steve of Alpaca finished the change and away I went, 5 minutes later.
The terrain changed again and it was beautiful.
