We got a early start this morning because the weather was going to be hot again today.  The Hotel has pastry and cold cereal , coffee and juice topped off breakfast.  We headed West but missed the turn 10 miles out, this made go 20 extra miles today .  The weather started out in the high 60 but climbed to 95 Degf.  We stopped at A&W for lunch and gas.  I decided to fill up the two one gallon plastic gas cans.  This turned out to be a big mistake.  The plastic containers didn't seal well and the trailer smelled with gas fumes.   I tried to tighten up the caps, it help but still got odors from the cans.  Latter that day I put the fuel in the bike and gave away the cans.  So much for taking extra fuel.  I looked at the tires  and I noticed that the left trailer tire wear is not uniform.  I didn't see any problem with the tire and will keep an eye on it.  The ride through Glacier Park was nice but the park was very busy.  It was hot at the top of mountain too.  The bike temperature climbed as we went though the mountain, but didn't go into the red zone.  The trip across the boarder was not a problem, we stop and took a picture of the sign when we pass it.  The GPS didn't find the hotel, lucky that the town was small and we just drove through it.  The hotel was on the main street.  At trip to a Chinese restaurant for supper and we are in the room for the night.
