I keep thinking I’m going to solve the GPS mystery and return to strictly back road riding but I seem to end up on the slab instead. I have a feeling it has something to do with the setting of “the fastest way” that I’ve chosen so maybe I’ll do it different tomorrow.
In any event I started the day with a short stack of hotcakes & coffee, compliments of the motel folks, and for only $3.00 more (00 + 3.00 = $3.00) I added two eggs over easy. Nice. No heartburn. No protein either which I need or my carcass goes into overdrive and begins to shut down. Well, not exactly shut down but I function better with something of substance which hotcakes fail to qualify as. But I digress, on with the day’s dialog.
Thank you citizens of Franklin..thenkuvermuch
Towns that plant posies are happy towns. True words.

Inkom's mystery industry...what do they do there?
It's not a zombie factory is it?
By the time I cleared out of the construction zone from hell it was nearing the time when I begin to look for accommodations. I wasn’t actually tired of riding but since it was approaching 5:00pm I figured I might as well. Jerome, ID, formerly unknown to me beckoned and turned out to be a fairly large town. They have all the desirable attractions for the traveler, nice eating places, plenty of motels, and fueling stops. I don’t know what it is exactly the local populace does but for me the Saw Tooth Best Western is all I needed.
There's even classier company for YP here
So that’s it, another day on the road and nearing my home state which I may well see tomorrow. Home itself is still quite a ways away but even my meandering riding style should put me there by the end of this week.
Linda tells me she mowed the lawn and it’s finally beginning its dormant stage so further mowing won’t be needed for quite awhile…. Timing is everything isn’t it?
