Got up and made coffee

We picked up the route and headed north. It was a nice day.

Looking down to Lake Billy Chinook.

Party boat

East through the Crooked River Grasslands and an ORV area that reminds us we might need a sticker. Do we? Maybe Dorksport can get one in Prineville.

We blast down to Prineville and cruise around looking to get some kind of sticker and some gas. I spy a black and white Dakar and a KLR sitting at the Arctic Circle. Come to find out that is Dakar Dave and Jeffer returning from the same ride with his group.
We leave Pville and head up to the Ochocco's, A sign of the times to come awaits us. The roads we want are open. Up and into the wide open places.

We come out on 26 on the divide and throw out our options. Camp without water or blast to Mitchell for food and find somewhere to sleep down there. So Mitchell it is, about 10-15 miles. It's still early and we're still having fun.

beer and burgers

At the Little Pine Cafe

We check out and feel sorry for Henry the bear. Big guy, but couldn't get a decent picture through the fence. Stop there if you haven't.

In pulls Pat Case heading home to Colorado from 5 week trip to Alaska. Check out his travels here at

We invite him to set up camp in the big city park with us. Free camping BTW unless you use the hookups. Pat used an outlet for his camera battery charger. No park cops came around.

We BS the night away. Pat's got some good travel stories and he has a KLR like mine so fit right in. They are faster!

The deer come out at night

A 170 mile day
