Mike Robertson on his bike open field to his left
In the July 4 Shared Vision Quest audio diary update, Mike Robertson laughed as he described the progress he and Hans were making using the radio headset he uses for directions, "Hans said, 'garbled, garbled, garbled, move left.' I'm used to him saying, 'pothole, move left,' or 'road debris move right.' I said, 'I didn't copy, what did you say?' 'RATTLESNAKE! Stay left'"
Mike reports the high desert, east of the Cascade mountains has provided hot, arid temperatures, as well as different obstacles to watch for in the road. On July 4, 2017 Shared Vision Quest came to a stop in the town of Republic Washington, for mechanical tweeks and a bit of recovery.
