When I last left you I was in death valley. From there I headed up through Nevada and on to Reno. My whole goal was to avoid Mt. Shasta on I5 and make it into Klamath falls to see family.
Unfortunately for me, the Sierras were hit with a major winter storm and snow happened from Sequoia all the way up to Washington. Turned out every road I could possibly take to get back to Portland looked like this one, even if I went way out of my way and avoided Klamath.
So, I had to go for it. What other option did I have? Here’s a clue:
Ended up storing the bike in Reno and renting this. Magically (see what I did there? Because warlock? Ha ha), I didn’t drink a bunch of bud light, start wearing wife beaters, or hit my girlfriend. It was actually a bare bones rental spec, but it had 4wd and did just fine.
Side note, heated insoles are the best thing ever.
