why not go thru death valley then up 395  and  over the passes and home?

I fly into Denver Saturday afternoon and need to be home Sunday night. Unfortunately don't have time for sightseeing.

Made it home safely last night. Took Hwy 70 - 50 and 88. Was a beautiful ride and wasn't cold at all. I got extremely lucky as I didn't pay attention with fuel and got into Salina on fumes. I also damn near had to spend the night on a park bench.

I didn't book a room anywhere as I wasn't sure where I would end up. I saw plenty of hotel options in Salina so I assumed I would be good if I chose that route and made it that far. Bad decision. (Yes, I knew it was Memorial weekend ). lol

It was close to midnite and every hotel was booked. I was getting desparate and rode over to the hotel that provided the most help when I was calling for rooms.  I was going to ask if I can just hang out in the lobby for awhile to get some rest before getting back on the road.

When I pulled into the parking lot, I saw an empty room that looked like it was under repair. I asked if I could rent that room as I only needed to sleep for a few hours. They did me a huge favor and gave me another room they said needed a refridgerator. I took it and had a good nite's rest. Best part is I got it for $60 

The rest of the ride was uneventful. Sorry I didn't take any pics as I was pressed for time. Richard, you are a madman for doing that on a bicycle. Props to you.
