Not a lot to report for the past few days – Jan has been relaxing in Michigan before crossing the border into Canada on Sunday. He will then be doing the maintenance and getting the bike storage arranged before flying back to the UK on 1st August.
He left Pete and Barbs and rode north to Michigan.
He did find a room in Lexington – eventually – it cost $88 – the bathroom was filthy and the wifi didn’t work. Worse, he didn’t get much sleep…..
[21/07/2013 18:55:47] bastards charged me $88 yesterday, then a bunch of Puerto Ricans came in and yelled most of the night away. So I put my TV on full volume to try to drown them out. Noise went on most of the night.
He was up and out of there first thing in the morning. He moved on to the town of Port Sanilac
This is our usual environment for most of the year – a marina
Tonight, Thursday, Jan went out for some lunch and noticed lots of bikes in the town . They were having a 136 mile get together with a plan for raising money on a ‘Toy Run’ – heading to Sturgis in Michigan in September and raising money to buy toys for less-fortunate children. Nice bunch of guys and gals
It has NOT been warm on this trip!
