Day 8: Ontario, OR to Boise Idaho, 64 miles, Climbing 2,739'

Another day of sunshine. Most of today's riding was on country roads through irrigated farmlands with crops of corn, onions, wheat and potatoes. Saw many quail and hawks. After 62 miles in the saddle had a nice lunch in Hyde Park on the edge of Boise where I had a "Belle of Boise" sandwich with turkey and cranberry sauce. (Strange coincidence as my badly missed girlfriend's name is Belle.) Dinner was outside with barbequed chicken, baked beans, fruit and apple cobbler. Two of the riders, Carl and Gayle will be leaving tonight as they only signed up for the first week. One week down with the first 612 miles behind us. Looking forward to a day off tomorrow.

Roadkill: 71
Flats: 0
Hurts: Minor hammy, palm and butt soreness
