|"Look Out" cache on Hwy 36|
At Eureka I veered northwest on Highway 36. My bad luck on finding caches finally changed and I picked up five along the way. After gassing up again I stopped in a park at Tooele (pronounced too-willa) and ate my lunch. Although it was sunny and getting warmer it was still a bit chilly.

With a good night’s sleep and breakfast under my belt I left Gooding about 7:00 the next morning. I took the Interstate to Boise and for the first time on the whole trip I had a nice tailwind. I stopped at the BMW shop where I had purchased my bike last year and got a replacement low beam bulb.
I took Highway 55 north out of Boise and only stopped for a couple of caches on the way home as I was ready to be home. I got home about 3:00 pm having traveled 383 miles for the day. For the trip I traveled over 4,000 miles averaging about 450 miles per day while stopping to log an average of 8 geocaches per day. There were a few other stops for ones I didn’t find. I would have preferred a more leisurely trip but nine days is a long time away from home. This was my eighth state to get geocaches in every county by motorcycle. That’s a pretty big chunk of territory. Next on the list is to finish Colorado this summer with Yancey. M/W
