Two weeks at 7000+ feet has been good to us. We’re still safe and sound, continuing to social distance. Most days we ride between 20 and 30 miles, nothing too crazy, always beautiful. Yesterday on my gravel ride I saw two riders up in the distance so I turned around and added on another 4 miles to my ride just so I could be alone. Crazy? Maybe!
We put together a new beautiful mixed (pavement and gravel) loop from the trailer. This ride was 24 miles with 2000′ of climbing. We topped out at 8,035′ before turning around but we’ll definitely go higher next time. The reward for our efforts? Big skies, forests, mountains, a little lake, and plenty of fresh air. Anyone from Central Oregon will surely thing we are right back there…looks VERY similar!
Having lived in our trailer full time since January 2019, some repairs are obviously going to be necessary. We need to replace the hood vent fan in our kitchen. We cook A LOT and anyone who has ever cooked in a trailer knows that the smoke alarm will go off if it detects the slightest amount of heat, or steam so the fan is important. Making oatmeal in the morning? Turn on the fan. Boiling pasta? Turn on the fan. Well, ours has started to make the most annoying high pitched squeal/yell whenever turned on. It sounds like “EEEEEEEeeEEEeeEEEE!” The part is ordered and I sure hope we get it soon.
Please, I hope we get it soon.
