Stopped by Ft. Clatsop today. Had more people taking pictures of me than me taking pictures of the fort. Guess my following the Lewis and Clark Trail captured their imagination. Of course, I was in the right spot to find a receptive crowd. I'm in downtown Astoria right now at an internet cafe'. Not sure what I'm going to do next. I could go across the river and look at Ft. Canby but I expect it to be an anti-climax. Besides, the bike is giving me more starting problems. The eGuard monitor, if it is to be believed, is signalling that the charging system is on the brink of failure. Had to use the jump starter again this morning so I'm reluctant to do a bunch of stop and go riding today. Plus, I discovered yesterday that the headlamp and hi-beam are dead so night riding's out. Now that I've made it to the end of the Lewis and Clark Trail, my mindset is in just make it home mode. I'll probably find a nice bar in town to smoke my daily cigar, have dinner and just head back to the tent. I head for home starting tomorrow. It's been my plan to hug the Oregon coast on the way home for the past three summers. Last year the bike died in Alaska and I had to UHaul it home. Two years ago, I did my high side through the windshield in Washington so I just got on I-5 so I could get home as fast as I could. Hopefully, third time's the charm. This could well be my last post on the 2005 Iron Butt Tour as I don't anticipate any more stops near places with internet access. Once I get back home and get a little rest, I'll process the pictures for posting. It's been great fun. Talk to you later.
