Where I stayed
Iron Horse Campground
After the oil change I went searching for a jacket to replace the one I lost on the way up. No luck, but I did find a nice furry seat cover that should make riding a bit more tolerable. At least that is what the guy selling them told me :-) It does seem to make a difference. We got rained on so we hid in a car wash bay for a bit until it passed and then made our way downtown to The Knuckle Saloon
When we parked we ran into a film crew doing interviews for a special airing on FX September 3rd during the premier of the Son's of Anarchy a new show about bikers. I did a 30 min interview and they said it was the best they had all day, so perhaps I'll be on national TV. I probably won't be home by then so everyone set their TIVOs and send me a copy. (www.fxnetworks.com/SOA ).
By this time we were hungry so we went into the bar and they had a buffet going. We met a Canadian couple, Blayne and Nick from Alberta, that had just arrived yesterday and ended up hanging around with them and showing them some of the cool places we had found. We left The Knuckle and went to the Broken Spoke. It was neat place and there were all kinds of motorcycles and interesting carvings all over the place. I even got shot while I was there (see pictures). We ended the evening by going to the Full Throttle bar that was on the way back to the campground. It was nice too but we didn't stay long. We wanted to get back in time for Karaoke night at the campground. Tomorrow everything ends so we will break camp and move on to the next adventure.
Thanks again for following along and keep those donations coming in.
