Last night in Susanville was interesting. I put on my swimsuit and tried to get into the pool with my card key. Either I was too tired or the pool was closed. At any rate went back up to the dark room, closed the window and drifted off to sleep.
Around 1AM I woke up and saw street lights outside. Sure enough we had power so I turned the AC on. Sure helped me go back to sleep.
Woke up at 7:30 and started coffee. Went down for breakfast making a waffle and drinking two glasses of orange juice while waiting for the waffle. Took a banana and went back to the room to map out today's route.
Back up. Before I went to breakfast I went out to the car to get the maps. I was so tired last night that I forgot to lock the car. Nothing appears to be missing. A Big Shout Out to Susanville!
I checked with the front desk and 395 was open but 97 was down to one lane in places due to road construction. So off I went NB in 395. Initially I entertained thoughts of camping at Battle Mountain SP, but the longer I drove the more tired I became and I started looking in earnest for suitable camping at Burns. Finding nothing I continued to just past John Day at Clyde Holliday SP where I found #16 ready for me.
Tomorrow I plan to go to Skeins, the yarn shop in John Day, and then head home. Then I'll tackle getting ready to hike in Washington where Packwood is experiencing highs in the low 70's.
