Day 7 Short day in the saddle, 69 miles of climbing

Finishing elevation for the day has 5,160.  Lot of long climbs,  Idaho is beautiful,  I had no idea what it would be like, we started riding on  route 78,  Bill Dukert is joining us today, he will arrive in Boise around 3:00 pm and ride with us for a week,   we took time around noon today and Alinda found a perfect spot to remember her grandfather , his funeral was today, it put us all a little closer to God this morning.  Lunch break at Mountain Home Idaho, ran into a local man who was ready to join us, here is a quote from his business card,  "Even a fish wouldn't get caught if it didn't open its mouth".  We have ridden around 100 miles of open range in Idaho.  Outside of Mountain Home,  Paul had is first visit with a local sherriff ,  Paul met him at the door of the RV with a knife,  the sherriff was very nice,  just wanting to know why he was parked at the side of the road.   We are in Fairfield  Idaho tonight,   the RV park is about 1 on a scale of 1 to 10,  put the showers had hot water.   Looking forward to what tomorrow brings.
