It's always tough to leave such a wonderful place. I hardly ate anything that I had brought with me and I gave everything I had left to Georg and Ria, the camp hosts.

Loaded up and down the road I soon reach the North Pass...brrrr.

I bought a hot spring book at the gas station in Big Pine and was flipping through it when an Austrian guy walked up and started talking to me. He's traveling with his gigantic camera, asks me about the bike, asks me what I do for a living and said, "Ya, I thought so...could tell right away.". Sent me down the street to check out this guys hot rod shop.

I wish it was my Willys, still has the split bench in the front...I must find one for my wagon!! Other cool stuff there:

Many 8,000 foot passes today and I'm frozen by the time I get to Bridgeport. Hopped into my favorite warm up spot.

Last fuel at the Nevada border, tried toe warmers taped to my fingers...kind of worked. I swear this is the last time I do this without heated gear of some kind.

Took my dirt shortcut over to Minden and hwy 88.

Made it into South Lake Tahoe for some pizza, it was down to 17 degrees already...the final run over the hill is gonna suck bad.

Another fantastic trip!! The bike did great, I snagged the idle screw with my boot when I fell down and threw off my sync a little bit, need to fix it and shorten it like I had already done to the right side. It's nice to have an 1150 that is as light as a KLR, didn't have to unpack a thing to pick it back up.

Thanks for reading and posting!!!

That film sounds great. Let us know if they ever make it available.

For some reason you seem to find all the cold spots on you DV trips. .......but that never slows you down.
