Day 65: Rest Day in Klamath Falls

Today has been the most restful rest day we have had so far. We all slept super well on the cushy rock climbing floor and had a leisurely morning. We made our way to Dutch Brothers Coffee and The Daily Bagel at our own pace for breakfast, and all went our separate ways from there. While Klamath Falls has a nice downtown, it isn’t a very big city, so there was less pressure than usual to get out and see a ton of different things. Many people did laundry, some wandered downtown, others worked on job applications, and others really just sat on the couch.  We all climbed at some point, which was a fun change in activity.

Mike provided a delicious dinner again. We continue to be thankful for generous stay overs, especially on rest days. It’s hard to believe this is the last one! 6 rides left!

We have greatly enjoyed our time in Oregon but are very much looking forward to crossing into California tomorrow!

    Stay the course! Finish strong! To borrow from baseball, play through the last out! That’s your public service announcement to keep up the concentration in these last few days. It’s all too easy to loose focus and concentration, and the roads are only going to get busier.
    Meanwhile, to funner things, food. I think you should treat yourselves this week to really out-of-this-world peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Try artisan blackberry preserves, made with berries picked at their peak of ripeness at just the right temp, to preserve juciness, and picked by people wearing white gloves to make sure that the fruit isn’t bruised. Combine that with hand crafted peanut butter, oh, wait, wait! How about instead of pb&j, have ab&j… almond butter and jelly. Since California is known for almonds (albeit grown farther south) try hand milled almonds, made from this years crop. Then, place it on gourmet bread, made with stone ground spring wheat that has been kept in a climate controlled facility! eh!?
    California, here you come!!!
    Glad you were able to get a good rest in before the final push.
    Stay safe. Sleep well!
