We had breakfast in Orick which seemed to be a Harly centric town; the nicest place in town was the biker bar. A couple of long climbs brought us to Trinidad where we had lunch and did laundry. The temperature has still been so cool that sink laundry clothes do not dry by morning. Lunch was a shared roasted chicken. Beautiful town and a great scenic route towards Eureka. After a few miles we had to ride 101 which is a freeway at this point. We had 15 miles of a great tailwind. No campgrounds around Eureka so ended up at a motel. Not many miles today. Bottle of wine and great sourdough bread, sardines, onion and cheese sandwich in motel room for dinner. Had corn chips and beer as an appetizer.
My cold continues though after a couple of hours riding my lungs clear and my sinuses have pretty much drained. My gloves really needed washing today.
Hugh's wounds are healing well though they are tight in the morning.
Tomorrow should be interesting since we'd like to do 80 but it will be a very hilly day.
