Day 16 -Heat and Slab

July 24 2017. Today was a catch-up day due to the lost time fixing the fuel pump. We went from Manti Utah to Tremonton Utah. Today was 90% slab. Really hot, really boring. We traversed 230 miles through Salt Lake City and many small towns. Today is Utah’s Pioneer day (all week has been Pioneer Days) so many of the citizen’s are on vacation and stores are closed.

Steve had to do some emergency repairs on his left boot overnight.  Shoe goo to the rescue again.  The right boot was the first to go 2 days before.  It’s like the glue Sidi uses has a precise expiration date.   Steve also had this same thing happen to his Sidi crossfire SRS boots a couple years ago.  Steve is NOT happy with Sidi’s manufacturing techniques.   He has had these boots for 8 years so this will be the last ride for these Sidi discoveries.

We had lunch at the Sizzler in Ogden Utah.  Steve’s salad… Photographed way better than it tasted he said.

Random town.   Steve walked up to this auto store to pick up some spare oil this morning but it was closed up tight for the State celebration of its independence / July

Told ya. Pretty boring day. Tomorrow we are headed into Idaho.
