Monday 9/5 Easy 16.4 miles to heaven. Little Joe to Polaris - visiting with Tara’s friends. 704.4 miles total.
We left Little Joe after 9:30. Regina (German) and her husband were pedaling past and stopped to chat. They actually sold Tara some tent stakes! Next thing we know, our friends Lois and Jon showed up! We didn’t expect to connect with them until tomorrow. Tara had made arrangements for us to visit her friends Laurie and Greg. On the way we stopped at the Crystal mine and dig up some crystals. Some weight to add to our packs! Noooo! When we arrived, Laurie fed us- sausages on the grill and two awesome salads - pasta and potato and veggies. We were in heaven. After showers and phone calls she took us to Dillan for some shopping. We polished off a box of Oreos on the drive home. Then Laurie made dinner. Look at the spread! Corn, elk steaks, halibut and baked beans with bacon and venison. It was great to sleep in a bed! Needless to say again, we LOVE Laurie!
