Where we we ?

Ah yea, trailside ear unplugging.
After taking a small break and solving the worlds problems, we saddle up and press on.
Wenatchee was our target for tonight.

And for the 1st time Washington Sates magnificent volcanic mountain come into veiw.










And this is what it was like fellas. Just a ribbon of dirt that threaded through in the shadow of the Cascades.






Now, as the afternoon wore on Mr. ISDE was well ahead of us.
Somwhere.
Not that it mattered, we love the indepence of an untethered ride.
However, when we popped out in Wenatchee, Brucee was nowhere to be found. But knowing the gentle giant like I do I put my GPS to work looking for his weakness.



And we found him
Eating an ice cream cone


After an orange vanilla twist, large of course, we check in at the local Holiday Inn.
And unpack


And then do what we do best


Hey!, YOU THINK THIS IS EASY ?

After we unwind and rewind the day in our minds, minds that are slowing letting go of the clock, the schedules, honey do lists, basicy letting NJ drain away,
we go for Mexican!



Here's the old man telling us how "back in 32' I won the ECEA grand championship on a bicycle with a lawn mower engine bungie corded into it"



After a few Coronas, a fitfull sleep set us up for what day 4 would bring our way.

NEXT UP:
Day 4, Snow capped mountains, the unrelenting rock gardens of Bethyl Ridge and we answer the question "will they camp" ?

Tony, I've been going nuts trying to figure out how to keep the other You Tube videos from automatically playing,
UPDATE When you click to Embed, A box appears that you need to uncheck to keep from automatically playing the next video.

Great to see another RR from DP and the gang. I haven't been in that area since'82, and that was on street. Good to see that part of the country.

John, I spun it around because I was afraid the branches would scratch the camera lens.

The ride through the jungle reminded me of the Jersey pines with hills.Franks been taking us on some great rides for quite a few years. Think he just brings me so he can get the Sr.citizens discount at the holiday inn.The nice hotels good meals and hot tub sure feel good after a long day of riding.I cant believe we didnt get a picture of the waitress at the mex.restaurant.
