DAILY REPORT:  The weather beautiful. Sunny and warm. 84 deg max. 

This was our rest day. First thing in the morning we thanked the owner of Spring Creek Ranch for providing us two days of lodging. It is my understanding that Spring Creek Ranch is ranked in the top 500 hotels in the country. We would agree!! We were then off into town to drop off James and my bike to take care of some funny noise emanating from the crank area and headsets. We were recommended to see Hoback Sports. Fortunately they were able to squeeze our bikes in and turn them around in an afternoon. A special tanks to the owner, Hernandez. He has a great store!

We also stopped by the laundry mat to do a week's worth of laundry. While we were there we unpacked and repacked the trailer. This was a good thing except for the location Skip had parked the car/trailer. We had the local police officer stop by because he had a complaint we were interfering w/ traffic. He was very good natured about everything and decided not to give Skip a citation :) We quickly repacked the maining items and moved our vehicle.

We also stopped by to visit Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce. In fact as we drove into the plaza for laundry, Heather from the chamber recognized our vehicle and said hi. We went over to her office to personally thank her for helping us get lodging accommodations for two nights. Thanks Heather your a real sweetheart!!

The rest of the day we explored downtown Jackson, did a little window shopping, grocery shopping and I got a much needed hair cut. 

We head back to the resort so that I could do some computer work and the kids could hang out at the pool. John met several international ladies who worked at the resort and played a little tennis.

We did a little bike maintenance. Since we had over 1,000 miles on the tires we rotated them. The wear ration is aprox 4 to 1 for the rear to front tire. By rotating them we should maximize their life.  

Spent the rest of the evening working on the computer.

Thanks for joining us.....ride safely!!

The pool at the River Creek Rank. Talk about some awesome views pool side! 

Stopped by Jackson's only Taco Bell compliments of Peter Braun. Taco Bell rocks!!

Jackson Hole is known for the city center's four corners with these elk horn arch ways. They are really cool!!

Working on the bikes. It's important to keep them well maintained for a trip like this.

Some new international friends! (and tennis professionals, just ask John!)
