Day 56 7/20/12 Heyburn to Dubois
For the first time ever this whole trip, I was in the lunch van. I didn’t mind much, as I hadn’t driven in a long time. Also, I would rather drive for a short day (it was only 38 miles), so I can do the 97 mile day to Mountain Home.
Sidni and I kicked ass getting food for the team. We even got us a donation at some fancy restaurant overlooking the gorge of the Snake River. However due to a miscommunication, we thought they were providing us 10 free meals to 10 people, however they had thought that we would bring the entire team of 27 and then they would comp us 10. Oh, well. We got a 50% discount and the food was delicious.
Everyone had biked their butts off in order to get to the matinee showing of “Dark Knight Rises” which I thoroughly enjoyed. Sophie and I did a quick core session, and then our hosts served us a wonderful dinner. After that we checked ut Shoshone Falls, “the Niagra Falls of the west”. Quite Lovely.
