I also soak my clothes for 20-30 minutes to help get all the funk out.

We checked out a Trangia stove that's available here. Runs on some kind of spirits not gas. Didn't like it anyway as with all the acompanying pots - aluminum - luck! - and whatnot it looked very bulky.
We've only been to the NPS Olympic campground at Fairholm (or Fairholme) once (2009) but it did have specific HB sites [down a rather steep trail]. Nice too.
...had made the assumption the campsites that had been mentioned catered mainly to cyclists, run by cyclists etc. So they're just your standard campgrounds ...
Let's see that is about 110 miles a day.
There is apparently a kind of 'spirit' fuel available in bottles but I'm not sure what exactly 'spirit' fuel is or if it would work in an MSR.
I found this link which shows that they're aren't many hiker/biker sites on the Olympic Peninsula route.
Great, thanks. I already factored in some time for some detours, which I will certainly use for La Push/Mora and Hoh.
I have a bit of a dilemma since the AC route uses 112/113, while Sol Duc and others are accessible from 101.
And I have an extra day in my back pocket, is Hurricane Ridge Road worthwhile? I might grab a room in Port Angeles and ride it unloaded.
...in their 2nd edition book, K&S have the out and back detours off 101 to La Push and the Hoh Rain Forest as part of their main route. But in their 4th edition, they no longer have them as overnight stops, but just as side trips. So are they worthwhile overnight stops?
Raccoons, however, will raid your food supply all the way down if it is not secured.
I think perhaps "boredom" was the wrong term. Instead, I think I should have instead said, "what do you guys do during downtime / relaxation time"
I can't say I'm ever bored on a tour.
