Just another Fossil run 09_28_17

With rain in the forecast and the last day in the 80's, it seemed like a good day to go to Fossil. It was a great ride, just slowed down by utility work/road maintenance w/flaggers in three locations. But I DID get to see a flagger with a "disco" safety vest! It was the normal fluorescent kind, BUT it had flashing LEDs all over it! It was cool.

I don't know how I managed to ride over 300 miles; I remembered the ride being around 280, but it was great to get out during the week.

I ran into a guy on a nice newer FZ9 adventure bike in Shaniko. There were a ton of other bikes out. Maybe we all felt the need to get in one last summer like ride.

Lots of area south of 218 was burned this summer

Not much going on in Fossil

Bake Oven Rd. This looks like a good place to take a leak!

That's true. Here's the gas station, west of the Fossil Mercantile on the same side of the street.

Couple of us made the run on the 27th. Great run. 500 miles for me. Remember, there is no premium in Maupin any more, at least until they can afford to get a tank that the state likes.
