It was almost 10 pm when we left Hanford to drive 5 hrs to Sam’s family place in Wallowa County. We had planned a layover to spend time with family, but by that time Flicker’s shakedown run was over and there were many repairs to be made. We spent much of the six days patching together and cleaning Flicker. It was a relief to have the tools and time to improve our setup.
It was also great to have some down time with friends and family. We rode horses, had memorable dinners, and rambunctious games of the card game “Oh Hell.”
