This is my last full day in Cranbrook. It seemed like a good day for bacon and eggs since it will be a simple breakfast tomorrow. I decided a ride back to Creston was the route de jour. I’d only been that way once and I found a few secondary roads this time which made for some new pictures. A short ways out of the city a group of about 20 Hells Angels blew past me on a sold line. One in particular cut right back in front of me within feet while another waved as he passed. You’ll find all kinds no matter where you look. Further down the road traffic was stopped for paving and I could see the group ahead. When I got to Creston I pulled into a gas station and there they were again. One said the power was out but it looked like the Esso across the street was good. I thanked him and crossed the street. All their speed and bravado got them nowhere. Back home the Angels I’ve seen on the road don’t speed so the cops don’t have a reason to stop them.
Creston is an interesting city
sort of perched on a ledge overlooking quiet a wide valley. It was in that valley I found some of the secondary roads. I’m not sure I could even get myself back to that spot in the photo with the rapids. I was amused by the people sitting in the water with their umbrella though.
Back in town I made the usual stop to fill the tank and then went to get a few more groceries not knowing what I’ll find at my next location. Back at camp I noticed the Volvo based Super C camper that was in the next row was gone. When I left they were having two new a/c units installed that were shipped from Calgary. The lady said one had failed before they left Montana but figured they’d get by with just one for this trip but now the second unit had failed. After I unpacked the bike of groceries and started up my own air conditioner that I forgot to turn on before I left I went for a walk and there was the big camper truck now parked on the back row. I crossed paths with the lady and asked if it
was all good and sadly she said no, the RV tech couldn’t get them working with the system in the camper so they are headed to their kids in Vancouver in the morning. Besides their kids being there it’s cooler and she made it sound like they have a friend of a friend who works at an RV dealer who might be able to look at their camper. At least the truck a/c will work for them while they drive.
After supper I’ll hookup to the trailer and load up the bike so I’m ready to go in the morning. It’ll be cool enough in the morning to do it but if I’m up early and want to get going I don’t want to disturb anyone trying to sleep late by starting up a motorcycle. I don’t consider it obnoxious but let’s say it’s louder than when it left the factory.
