Royston to Thasis 2021 – Day 1

Journal Entry

Tough day. Boston Main closed due to hauling. Security guard O.K., but I made a poor decision by trying to detour up Forbidden Plateau mountain bike trails. Hike a bike! Burped front tire and had a puncture!

A couple of steep river crossings and lots of climbing!

My phone crashed and GAIA GPS lost ALL data, except (luckily) one basemap (Backroad Mapbooks) and I was able to import my route. Annoying to lose photos and the track from today.

I nearly had to resort to navigating off of my inReach, which is why we have backups. More lessons learned!
