Day 2

After 4-5 hours of sleep I load up before dawn...

and head down the hill towards Barstow.

I enjoyed the sunrise.

I would like to make it to the mountains before the desert warms up.

North of Barstow I feel the chain skip a few teeth. Uh oh! I've never had a chain do this. That thing was loose!
This was my first indication this chain was stretching. I get it tightened up.

The rest of the day I worry about the chain, but it is feeling okay.

Up Walker Pass!

I've made it to the SIerras.

I turn north on one of my favorite roads of all time...
