Yes.
I made the vibrant mistake of going down to check on the bike when it started to get a little rough.
While I was down there I decided to re-pack one of my bags to fit a mug I bought on board.
Then of course my net broke and had to unload the bike to get under the seat for a back up.
Meanwhile, inhaling diesel fumes in a dark space with not much air and lots of movement.

There's that switch, you know?
When you go instantly from good to bad.

The switch was hit.
And the only remedy for this badness was land.
And there was none for a while.

Yeah, I know that "switch" ...been there, done that,, ,,under some different circumstances,,,,

Ferries,,, over here ( europe) one just about every time gather the bikes on a special lane before entering the ferry..No matter how many cars there are, the bikes just about every time get on board, and get on board before the cars. The bikes doesnt "compete" with the cars on the same parking places..

Just read it from the start of the ride north. Seems like a once in a life time trip so far. Great read.

On another note, this is my 7 year old, and she loves taking short rides around our rural county here in Georgia. We like to visit all the dairy farms and watch the horses and cows.
