To Canada with love, and not enough skating
This would be my last stop for the night. It was pushing 9 pm and darkness was setting in, but what really stopped me was that the gas pumps didn't have card readers and there was no way to get fuel to continue. Went to the first hotel and the rate was high. From there I called the other place in town, The Actic Divide Inn and Motel, to find that it was a few dollars cheaper but would still work out to about $96 dollars US for the night. With temps below zero, no easily accessible camping I had to bite the bullet and get a room for the night. Getting off the bike it showed 38F but I could see frost forming on vehicles in the parking lot.
I was greeted by the lodge dog who was a total sweetheart and very mellow.

It had gotten cold enough over night that there was frost and ice on the bike when I went to load it.

I then went to another motorcycle shop to try and find a USB type socket to replace my 12v automotive socket already on the bike and to look for highway pegs. Like Cycle Gear, this shop didn't have good options for either. I will have to find a USB socket or find another way to charge my gear as the USB plug vibrates out of the 12v socket anytime I ride north of 45 mph.
