In the U.S., state troopers repeatedly steer Bushby off major highways and to winding side roads. He is about to cross from Montana into Canada when he decides to step into a bar to ring in the New Year. He leaves the Beast outside, where it is promptly stolen: "My gear, passport, photos, maps, details of every spot I'd pitched my tent, gone." Some drunk locals offer to drive him around to search for the thief, but they soon get into a car accident and are apprehended by the same police officers to whom Karl had reported the theft.
