Ted's Big Ride---Day Thirty-One

Vernal, UT to Guernsey, WY
May 30, 2006


Today was a long day. I got to the H-D dealers at 0900 hrs as they were actually turning the door sign from CLOSED to OPEN. They wrote me up almost immediately and took the bike back into the shop. I got a drink and read a magazine. They had the bike fixed and I was out of there by 10:30---VERY Decent Service. I then started by planned trip through Flaming Gorge and rode almost all the way thru Wyoming. Set up camp in the dark without any problems, documented the day in this journal, and now it's time for some rest/shut-eye. Tomorrow off to Mt. Rushmore and the Black Hills of South Dakota. Goodnight All.
