Rode Anyway

The weather forecast was for high winds but not cold or rain so Cee and I showed up at the appointed hour and appointed place.
Eventually about ten people arrived for the FOG ride.


solarmoose, George and Ken (Ken had a get off this spring but is looking good.)


A nice looking PD and owner Steve



George checking out Paul's nice '77 (or was that a '79?) Sounded good!


We stopped at mile 41 Chena Hot Springs Road for a quick break.


The wind was really howling and blowing us around on the road.


We came across numerous trees that had been blown down across the road requiring us to stop and move 'em.
Could of used a chain saw. Probably a dozen or so downed trees.

Never rained and temps were as high as 67F and never lower than 59. We rode out to the Hot Springs, had lunch and rode back.

Great Last Ride, can we do another last ride?

Nah, we'd just gone back to the lodge and be "trapped" for a while.
Now get off ADV and get some sleep.
