Day 10 Yellowstone to Jackson
Sorry for the late post. Busy day. The riders started off from Yellowstone in a fog with a light frost 30 degrees. GW had to stop several times to de-ice. Yellowstone Lake is fantastic. 109 sq miles. It feels oceaney.
Some riders opted to wait the fog out for a while hoping it would burn off. They took a loop ride around the park to Old Faithful, down into Teton National Park and into Jackson. The sun did finally come out and it was gorgeous.
Busy day for the GWW team. Got into Jackson tracked down propane and water for the camper and food for Erm. You know we were so worried this trip was going to be too hard on her, but she’s eating this up, loves the attention, and her company to me in the pickup is invaluable.
We’re “camped” out at the Jackson fairgrounds tonight.
GW is working on the bike. Vibration and a “noise” when he gets on it. In checking the bike out tonight found that the chain was sliddywampus (my word not his). Replaced the chain w/an old one. Called around to motorcycle shops but none were to be had. I’ll look around tomorrow in Idaho.
Feel like we’re finally hitting our stride. Knowing what each other needs and what needs to be done.
I hear Gary outside the camper visiting with the folks that have come out to see the bikes. He’s in hog heaven. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him this happy.
Again, how does it get any better?
Big day tomorrow into Mountain Home, ID. 360 miles for support. 290 for riders. Start for Gary is 7:45.
