|A 747 tail|
Traveling north we made another brief detour to Burlington (finally found the B in BNSF) to hunt down a dog-bone for my bike - they didn't have one but I ended up with a pannier brace to hopefully do the job. With thirteen states, seventy-nine days & over 20000 km (12500 miles) of driving, almost 1000 km of mountain-biking over 80 hours we left the States & they let us back in to Canada. What a fantastic time we've had & every day we still see little things around that remind us just how much we've seen around the west-USA. Not to mention all the fantastic riding I've done in some really great places. If I was ever back for any length of time I think I'd spend a lot of time riding in Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho & Oregon.
We eventually met Karin near a beach (it was the first sunny day in Vancouver in months) to grab the keys to let ourselves in to her & Adam's apartment. Very blessed to be staying in a home for a while, for the second time in the trip & also within a week.
