Day 8

It was a sad morning leaving John Tucker’s house. We had an enjoyable breakfast and loaded up our bikes. We set our goal to make it to Walla Walla. Before heading out of town we stopped at Wal-Mart and Kiana and I bought our 4th of July bike decorations and Alex bought a white board.

The biking was a lot of fun. We biked on road for a while, Kiana and I took our state pictures, and we stopped at a “yacht” club to eat lunch. The man working there was very rude and would not let us eat there, which just showed that not everyone was as nice as John Tucker. We road on a gravel road for several miles and I had a lot of fun on it. Pae and I were in front of the group for majority of it. We also biked through a bee farm, which was terrifying. I could feel them hitting my legs; I was scared I was going to get stung.  We also stopped at an RV place to fill up our water bottles. Kiana and I met a really nice lady who owned the campground. She told us all about the history of it and drove us in her old pick up to the bathrooms (Jacob was mad we were in a car). She also told us to be careful because the road we were biking on was extremely dangerous and many people had died on it before.

We lost Pae. He was racing ahead and I gave up on trying keeping up with him. The group stopped and we had to flag a car down to go get him. Once we retrieved him, we biked on a straight road for a while. This stupid song was stuck in my head and I was screaming it at the top of my lungs. The only line I knew was “I’m feeling sexy and free!” We then made it to Walla Walla and ate some delicious Mexican food then biked to the fire station to find somewhere to sleep. Jacob got attacked by a dog as well. We toured the fire station and set up camp in the backyard. It was a great place to sleep, I felt safe.
