Right now I am "stuck" in Joseph, Oregon without internet service. Friday was the official start of the IMBC2012 and bloggers started rolling into town where we decided to meet in Baker City, have a relaxing dinner and Saturday ride into Hell's Canyon. Some of us arrived earlier than others and while we were waiting, those of us that were there decided to spend a relaxing non-riding day perched on a picnic table under the trees to escape the heat.

I wanted to be able to post our activities "live", as others have done, but a Canadian cell phone being used in the USA accrues expensive data roaming charges . I am able to tether my iPhone and this is the first time I have tried it, so for now I am only posting a couple of small photos.
EDIT: tethering didn't work and finding a free internet access solution is proving to be a challenge so my silence for the next few days will be a welcomed relief to some people, esp Karen who thinks that I don't know what a meadow is. And technically, I am the slowest Canadian as I was behind her and I did not ride to the end of the Road to the Dam as she managed to do.
I am here another night without internet service and next week I don't know which way the winds will blow, as I am on vacation, in Oregon with my bike, no definite plans with a "blank" slate . . . I have my tent and my credit card."
I am going to throw a dart on Monday morning and see where it lands . . .
