At this juncture in my travels I needed to catch up on laundry and a shower,so as they say "Timing is Everything". After spending the night and getting my bits and pieces done, I bade a thank you and farewell to Mark and Bend and headed north to Sisters, up to 22 and Detroit,then over a Forest Gravel road to Estacada,just SE of Portland. From there it`s up to Sandy and then East across the gorge to the Bridge of the Gods. On the way there I stopped by Touratech in Seattle to see Kimmo and the boys and take off the rear grab handle on the bike and replace it with the Touratech Luggage Rack extender and also get an MSR Dragonfly liquid fuel stove.
My Jetboil started to die on me, so I decided that instead of carrying gas canisters of fuel for the Jetboil that if I switch to liquid fuel I can use the fuel in the gas tank also.
