The goal is to arrive Vancouver on the 21st, with no assumption that Customs will let me out of the country. Tomorrow is 50 miles plan, to a casino parking lot that it seems might allow one to stop for the night in the parking lot. Two-thirds of the way is a UPS Store where the passport hopefully will arrive and bike shop where a spare tire and some tubes can be purchased. And a failing bearing addressed. This body and soul is very very tired in recent days. Combination of tremendous physical exertion and huge distress at the ascendant evil in the world. Travel today was fairly light, much downhill. Several hours this afternoon were spent on maintaining worn tires and other issues. Hopefully this forest service road will be okay for the night and it is the plan to stay here and leave early tomorrow morning hopefully to beat some of whatever morning traffic there may be. Although the Outlook is sunny for the coming week the power of the sun is cut by probably a third with all the smoke in the air from the Miriam fire. Travel each day will require about 50 miles which is a bit longer than desired but in this area of extreme evil inequality the rich folks don't much take to anyone that does not own their own secluded property. And the non Rich locals are understandably outraged at the influx of people to their area pushing them to the margins. research has gone into trying to identify places where stopping for the night will be okay and unless the information is faulty if we are able to travel about 50 miles a day it should work. The plan remains to travel south from Vancouver once the work there is done along the coast. But this has not been planned in any detail and there is Verizon signal in this area so hopefully tonight some of that planning will begin.
