The morning was cold sleeping on the picnic table. The cool weather was a surprise as it's been nothing but sweltering hot last month or so. I was excited to ride in so cool weather so I packed up in a hurry and hit Barrs Café for breakfast.

The morning ride was nice and cool, but the route was mostly uphill and with a headwind all the way to Sisters. As the morning wore on the weather turned to it's normal hot and sunny that I've been used to. The ride went by pretty quick and I got to Sisters at 10am.

I did some sightseeing in the small town and was relaxing on a bench when I met a girl named Gayle. Gayle works at the local hair salon and was just doing some shopping on her day off. We hit it off pretty well and she offered to take me sightseeing around town. We spent an hour or so just sightseeing and talking before she took me to the salon for a hair cut. The salon was closed because it was a Saturday but she opened up and gave me a free cut. I got a fresh hair cut and a bunch of shampoo samples to take on the road.

While in the salon Gayle said she wanted to go to the County fair in Prineville and asked me if I wanted to go. I didn't have much else to do, especially not with any other good looking girls so I enthusiastically agreed. We locked up my bike in the salon and headed to the County Fair in Prineville. The time flew by as we had a great time at the fair. We spent the night in the beer tent listening to the band and enjoying a cold beer.
