Bill's Superior Adventure
got 14.x litres of gas last night.
Moto was stalling when I would put it into gear. Had me freaked out.
This morning checked oil, just below low. I added some oil and it seems to
it's cold (-1 C), light sporadic drizzle.
About 14 litres again.
Woah: A plane just flew over head, looked like a DC-9. Didn't recognize
the airline. I guess at least Canada is back in business.
Damn, that was loud.
So the random stalling after gassing up was just the kill switch engaged by
having the kick stand down. Saftey feature! Dammit!
I'm just outside of Thunder Bay. I spent a lot of time tooling around north of here,
took pics, was great. I'd really like to take the time
and hike the area, But not today!
On my way down from Nipigon I spent some time exploring rather than traveling.
Just north of Thunder Bay I stopped at a scenic overlook and had a good look around. The bay
itself is pretty large. I first stopped to see Isle Royale. I've
never seen it and I was amused to see this distant part of michigan from Canada.
end of the bay is enclosed by a rocky peninsula and the
far end of it looked really interesting. Even though it involved backtracking
I decided I'd regret not taking the time to explore a little.
I was right. At the end of the peninsula there is a large escarpment called
the Sleeping Giant. One half of the peninsula is a provincial
park by the same name. While I didn't spent much time off my bike there,
it looked like there were some really great hiking trails and
camp grounds. I want to come back and spend a couple days exploring.
The roads near Thunder Bay sparkled in the sunlight.
Now on to Us Border Patrol and Customs!
Beautiful, construction, repeat
bonus - great roads when not construction.
saw the other shore of the lake appear and creep in closer, now i'm at the point.
Called Jen & Andy, now on to mpls
In town I settled down at Jen's apartment and went out to dinner with Jen, Andy, and Chris.
Dinner was actually really bad, the worst ribs any of us had ever eaten in fact, but no matter.
It was nice to see my sister again.
