Day 16: 53 miles, Jun 3

Came into the tiny town of Cambridge, ID around lunch to find it very busy! I stopped at a city park whereupon a family took pity on me and gave me a fried chicken and potato salad lunch. Thanks! The bustle about town was the annual Hells Canyon Days (no, there is no apostrophe in "hells" -- I checked), which is a car show and bull riding. This is an old Chevelle. Notice the license plate: "Famous potatoes." What does it mean!?

Oliver, surely you know that Idaho is famous for its potatoes....
And double surely, you've heard this joke....
A potato has three daughters, and the first daughter marries an Idaho potato, "very good, very respectable" says the father. His middle daughter marries an Irish potato "fine lineage" says the father. Then the third daughter wants to marry Dan Rather. The father is crushed--"Honey, PLEASE! He's just a common-tater...."
