Anyway, back to this trip, which he says he'll do again next year, he was a little cold, and there wasn't enough daylight, and the ground was too hard, and it hurt just to get up in the morning, though he didn't sleep much. It was too dark to do anything other than stay in the sleeping bag and wait for dawn.
On the way home, he was zipping up a hill and the bike was running strong, until it wasn't. He limped home and fixed it and says an intake valve was too tight, though he'd thought it was a clogged fuel line, and he changed the fuel filter. Anyway, he fixed it after it got him home. (Hooray B-31). Now he says it's better than ever.
