The company you keep...

My former partner Tom and I forgot one very important reality--- in Oregon, one can not pump their own fuel. Like ever. Not even with a debit card. We were near the Strawberry Range, and in the process of traveling between the the towns of John Day, Canyon City, and Prairie City, it was after 10 pm  and no gas was to be found. The next towns were all nearly a hundred miles away, in either direction.

So we found this very old hotel, where a person must share a bathroom with all the other guests, as well as their dogs. It was the only room to be had, and these guys, well they were our hosts. Sort of. What I wouldn't do to interview all of them---but ya know, they look a lot like the guys I run around with up here in Pend Oreille County.

Minus the hats.
