Ummm … We could not get bear mace. There are packs of wild dogs here. See these photos for how we carry it. Ray tested it out on one nasty hound, and the beast ran away coughing.
Paul found his climbing legs on a signpost that marked today’s starting and ending points. Ray also made the ascent.
We found a great picnic spot today and we even caught a few zzzzs there after a huge lunch. No we have not lost any weight despite riding over 500 miles in week one.
