Day 15- Nathan Beck, Good Samaritan
When I woke up around 8:30am, it was about 65º degrees. The wind kicked up last night which probably brought it down to at least 55º or so.
I’m not sure, but I think my dog got laid last night. I hope not. (Editor's note: Nate explained that Sadie has not been spayed. He also could hear other dogs in the camp area, then Sadie suspiciously dissapeared, and returned after some time with a slight smile on her face.)
When I pulled into Jackson last night a couple of Harley riders were looking for fuel. This town doesn’t have a gas station, and they weren’t going to make it to the next one. So being the nice guy I am, I sold them my last can for $16.00 dollars. I hope the next town has gas!
As I ride southeast out of Jackson I pull over to put my sweatshirt on. It’s still a little chilly! Elevation is about 6,500’ feet.
I pass through Lakeview where there were over 10,000 foot high peaks that still had snow on them. As I climb over the pass, I came across two men in a small truck with a flat tire. I turned the bike around, plugged & aired up the tire and sent them on their way. They were very thankful.
I ended up in West Yellowstone, Montana. After cruizing the strip, I headed for the hills to camp. It got down to 48º degrees by 5:00 am. For a bit, I almost thought it was going to rain.
