Last Days In America

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.

P1130386 P1130391 P1130394This is the town of Chelsea, Michigan where the famous Jiffy food mixes are made.  Jan and I stopped here on a previous trip when there was some sort of town festival going on.

WE WERE HERE BEFORE P1130404At around 7pm, his time, he phoned me to ask if I could find him a motel in Port Huron. I couldn’t; everything was booked up as there was a yacht race on the Great Lakes.

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…..

P1130407[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

P1130411Nice town, nice clean motel, reasonable wifi – booked until Friday.

P1130417 P1130423Tonight, 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
