No bugs, anywhere!

I didn't need to wash my visor all day, that's how few bugs there were in
these 840Km. They didn't even come out at sunset and I reached the hotel
with still relatively clean visor. I usually get this many in 10 minutes at
the end of the day. Go figure, I guess closeness of Pacific ocean has
something to do with it.

BTW, went through almost two entire states today (Washington and Oregon).
Decided to forgo some potential attractions like Oregon Coast and Crater
Lake in order to get to where I can get the bike fixed (in dire need of a
new chain). Also, keeping an eye on some delights to look forward too, like
Pacific Highway, Death Valley and maybe the Bonneville Salt Lake, the holy
land of speed.
