Yeah, I bought your book and the Benchmark Washington at the same time. Two weeks later had a KLR, started hitting your routes the next weekend and did my first big ADV Alaska ride out of Seattle a few months after. Haven't looked back. Your $15 book has cost me countless thousands by now by the way.
I grew up in Port Angeles and your picture of Kloshne-Nanitch is what did it for me having viewed it from Lake Crescent area hundreds of times as a kid and never getting up there.
The WABDR ride is a fun one for sure, although breaking camp with burning trees around us this year was exciting to say the least.
Been following your Heart of the West thread and kicking it around. A bit worried about fuel on my TE610 though.
