Left Bridgeport and the plan was to ride all the way into Bend. 510 miles. Weather and wind was bad all day. Rain, snow and high winds. Made it as far as Lakeview, Oregon before the snow was just too much. Last 10 miles into Lakeview was done at about 10 miles per hour. Finally made it to Lakeview which is about 150 miles from home. Posted up on a local forum and a friend, Dave Wachs, of the famous Rescue One Service said he'd come after me. Thought about sitting it out but they were calling for more snow the following day and I wanted to get home. Dave showed up the following morning and we loaded up and hauled the bike into Bend. All in all...... a great ride.

Wachs......Rescue One has shown up to save the day. Big thanks to Dave for driving over to Lakeview to get me.

The end!
