Day 13 - Rest Day

Took the day to catch up on some sleep and relax a bit. Sean made us homemade strawberry pancakes before leaving for work. He'll be off to a marathon in Crater Lake shortly. The town of Sisters is really quite cute and quaint. Went to a medical clinic to make sure I am okay, as I've been feeling a little out of it. The doc says I'm fine, but to get a new helmet. Sure enough, mine was cracked and out of commission. I needed a new one! There went another $65! Ugh! But it did what it was supposed to - saved my head from any major injury! Got some great ice cream and am taking it easy. Changed Liam's trailer tire tube so hopefully I will not have to pump it up every day now!
Watched a bit of Forrest Gump and rigged a special cover for Liam's trailer in case there is a storm. Amazing what $3.99 worth of tarp and duct tape can do. I'm convinced that Duct tape is an essential piece of equipment for anything.

Yes! Duct tape and I would have to say a head lamp are essential pieces of equipment when 'roughing it.' Well done, Liz! I'm loving the pictures (and looks like Liam is loving the attention!)
