|Looks like rain. Actually, those words will come back to haunt...|
|That *is* a considerable amount of turf.|
|Oi, Casey Jones- you going to the convention in Wallace?|
So it's the Washington Highway State Patrol and as a (rubbish) cyclist I'm prohibited from the Interstate whilst in the built-up area of Spokane. Officer checks my id and asks what where I'm going. When I said "Miami" he did give me a sideways glance, hah-hah!
Ticking-off accepted (and he did buy my sincere plea of total f**king ignorance), the bloke pointed me the route to take and then re-join the I-90 noise-fest. No dramas!
|If it's any good for aches & pains then...|
|Spokane- I salute you!|
|Always good to know.|
|One down, thirteen to go.|
|Idaho looks ok. In the sun, obvs...|
|Can you just f**k off with the winds altogether, please? Except tail ones. Cheers.|
|The lovely Coeur d'Alene. Wanna come back!|
|A.n.other drag done.|
|You cannot whack the smell of pine. Beautiful!|
|Bit of marsh. Still looks ok, doesn't it?|
|Little 'over the shoulder' number there. Still with one eye on the shoulder debris, obvs.|
|"Any chance of a small ice pack, please?" "Sure, no problem."|
Probably the first (and hopefully last) time that I have paid the full rate...apparently I got the last room as there is a convention of retired rail-road workers in (very small) town. Still, the hotel is ace: even had a dip in their hot-tub before wedging out for some grub.
|That's "full service", alright?|
|Outrageous. I don't even warrant 4th billing.|
The waitress/co-owner asked what I was here for and she duly told her kid who was watching the goings on in the cafe: the wee man asked why I didn't drive? Out of the mouths etc., hah-hah!
Today's useless fact: parts of 'Dante's Peak' and 'Heaven's Gate' were filmed in Wallace. Ain't never seen either movie either...
|Great local brew, but jam-jars?|
|Not burnt, but not a great look either!|
|As seen in Wallace's local paper. *facepalm*|
|Not my gaff tonight but a happening joint. Maybe that's why, hah-hah!|
I know that I come with the same old, same old, ad nauseam- but that's only because it's true.
