I just can't imagine it could get any worse. We had to take a room as the town was full with a worldwide cave searchers thing, 1600 additional people in town.We were on a Harley and could not go further.

After a series of chains, this was a welcome break and a chance to leave our money in the community. Wonderful breakfast just up the road at the...
