Today we traveled 248 miles and arrived at the hotel around 3:30 PM. Before we left on this trip, Steve had made an appointment with the local Honda dealership here in Bend, OR to have the oil changed on the bikes as we have driven over 3,500 miles at this point in the trip. Anyway, I stayed back at the hotel to download pictures and write today's blog. Hope you enjoy today's post. ...
