Dee’s Bicycle Trip still Day 3

It has been a very nice rest day, catching a 22 lb Mackinaw and then taking several naps and reading and writing a bunch. Tomorrow is going to be a relatively easy day of 62 miles and only 1,495 feet of elevation gain with a maximum grade of 3.3%, a tail wind of about 6 mph with gusts to 20 mph. We will be in a campground near Fort Rock, I think. One of the major challenges on this trip is calling and making arrangements and reservations for the campgrounds ahead. I often don’t have cell service, and it seems regularly that the price they are suggesting is very high for 3 tents and 4 bicycles so I usually do a little discussion on price, usually to no avail. Oh well, still a lot cheaper than what Tom is paying for an RV spot. Part of the problem is that we need to charge cell phones, gps’s, IPad, blinking red tail lights that are very bright and need charging each night, and my camera, so we need a spot with electricity. Tomorrow night is $15 a person and the next night it is $20 per person, but they do have hot springs to sit in. I was hoping to do the entire 60 day trip for $1,000, but it looks like it will be closer to $1,500 if I don’t eat lunch in a restaurant to much. It is a good thing I sold my pickup before we left. It is only 7:00 pm, but I think I am going to go to bed.
