The Long Hot Haul


The Third Leg of our trip was the grand daddy: a long hot ride on rt 5 going up through the less glam half of California. We have 331 odd miles and some 6 hours to go. Our first hour goes well but we hit a major traffic jam where we’re stop and go for 45 minutes in the heat. The cars and trucks beside us crank their ac, but we’re covered from head to toe and Steve wrestles to keep the bike upright.

In the vid you get the sense of the expanse of the land out here.
