Tuesday March 10, 2020 Highway 20 off highway 80 camp
Traveling towards home
This morning I pulled out of last night’s camp up on Highway 6 into Bishop.
When I turned to leave I heard a strange crunching sound from the front end and thought OH, Oh, but things were working so I kept going on to Bishop to get some gas before I ran out as I was real low on gas. If there was something wrong it couldn’t be too bad as I’d gotten this far with it so on I went.
Headed to Bishop for gas
I made it to Bishop with a little gas to spare and filled up my tank and posted my blog at at a McDonald’s.
Headed up 395 scenic views
Snow in the mountains
Found a broken spring shackle
I stopped at the end of that road to check out the front end noise I heard this morning and found a broken front spring shackle. It had been working all the way back to this spot since from our adventure on the Mojave Road Trail so I figured it would be all right to continue on home with it broken like that.
Continuing on towards home
I continued up and around lake Tahoe and over highway 80 West to the highway 20 exit where I turned onto it.
Tonight’s camp spot
Broken spring shackle
It sprinkled a bit just before dark but didn’t amount to much and stopped shortly after it started.
I’ll stay here tonight and work my way home in the morning after a good night’s rest.
Nice day traveling up the highways.
