Hey guys,
what up?


This morning, while we were gettting ready for work...

matt: Um. have you looked at the ride report lately?
me: no. I’m trying not to.
matt: Well, you might want to. You insulted Victor, there’s some weird shit from Questor, and some guy says his head is going to explode.
me: *sigh*

RIF, baby! Reading is fundamental.







Let me quickly address a few comments...

Hey Victor! Congratulations - I was testing to see if you were still reading...and you passed!
Actually, I'm really sorry.
I was using "Vince Buger," but then I saw that the axe murdering guy in Motel Hell was named Vincent so I quickly substituted the first "V" name that popped into my head.
It just happened to be Victor. I'm not very creative.
Sorry! I still love Yetis

I mean you wouldn't let me read up until 36 f*cking hours ago right? I mean 36 hours is like a forever, right? I mean, 36 hours is like forever, right (did I already say that????)? So, please update this m*therf*cking RR with a quickness before my head explodes. OK? Really? OK? I'm sorry for the language except that's how I talk, so I'm only sorry so far as this RR gets updated. Holy sh*t I'm freaking out. PLEASE, I know you're listening, update the d*mn RR already. I mean not that I care. I mean I've got plenty of other things going on. I mean I've got plenty of really important things going on, just NOTHING AS IMPORTANT AS THIS RR. GET IT?????
Make scary tweaker dude your favorite!
Haha, just kidding, acesandeights. Don't get your panties in a wad. I'm already in the doghouse for insulting Victor...

Oh no, you too, Count Zeroblah? Warning - that link is not safe for work! But you have to watch it when you get home!



Well, we can’t have any exploding heads...
Auntie Sha warning: graphic! don't look!

So I'll leave you with that stuff and I'll get cracking on Day 13 (to post later tonight).

Hey Oliver, Undersea, redog, woxof ( for the kevin bacon remark )!
And, welcome,

I go out into the wild for my own little ride. I come back and find this in a riot stage? And I don't even know where I stopped reading before I went out of internet connection and into said little ride. I fear reading past pages...

Head Explody...

I do that to my employees a lot.

As a result, we have a high turnover rate...

Still, it's part of the job - making people understand what's going on in my mind, and trying to get them to understand too.

I can't help it if their tiny brains absorb that much information.

Q~

P.S. More Ride Report please. The collective is getting restless.

Hey Lion BR, welcome back!

Uh. Yeah. This report went from Romper Room to padded room while you were gone...

(don't mind Questor. I think he's gone Nixels on us )




Day 13: 7/19/10 Spokane, WA to Eureka, MT 268 miles

Got up and had cold pizza for breakfast. Wasted a bunch of time with last minute errands, then got on the slab.



Went on 290 to 53 to 41, into Idaho.









I love how generic this sign is.







That sounds inviting!




For being on the slab, this wasn’t too horrible











LittleWan screwed with this post 01-02-2011 at 11:30 AM Reason: fix the broken link for "padded room" :)

I suppose if you are a dyed-in-the-wool offroader, any paved road looks like slab. But to me, the true slab is the interstate. ANY interstate...they're pretty much all the same: dull, dreary, boring, and overcrowded with idjit cagers. This road, on the other hand, looks like great fun.

There's slab, and then there's Super-slab

Ah so much better, daily dose of littlewan/bigwan RR. I feel much better now, blood is returning to other parts of body now.

I just hope that by all these idiotic "padded room" comments you relize your doing an amazing job, thank you guys!




Now back to RR!

Hi sion,
Oh yeah, it’s way better than I40 or something.
But I guess I just really prefer dirt, 'cause unless I'm hurt, even this pavement kind of bugs me.



Okay, you guys - I have some good news and some bad news.

First, the good news - a little more update for you...
Day 13 continued...

We went through Bonner’s Ferry and got some gas.
It was about lunchtime, but nothing sounded good, so we kept going.
There were a few photos that I really regret missing on this trip.
One of them was in Bonner’s Ferry.
I missed the freaking Barber Ship! and Matt wouldn’t go back.

Click on this link and scroll down: this person actually went inside the Barber Ship and took some pics!
(Also, you can see some of the stuff we missed in Spokane...)
If I could do it over, I'd go back and get my head shaved at the Barber Ship.



I love these giant, fluffy clouds










Finally, we stopped at Fiesta Bonita







The waitress was nice enough, but slow.
It took forever to get our $11 burritos.
We were hoping for the lunch specials, but we had missed them.
By an hour! It was 4pm, now that we were in Montana...
it took a couple days to get the hang of the time change.

We were in Libby, MT. City of Eagles
(you were expecting Hotel California or something, weren't you? I'm not that old )



Montana was just as pretty as Idaho













We were hauling ass toward Roosville, to start the Continental Divide Trail.
I guess it’s better to call it the CDR, but I’m too lazy to change anything so I’m sticking with CDT.

I know this photo is blurry, but what are these things? Does anyone know?
They look like tall guinea pigs or potatoes with legs and I love them!





Okay, I guess that's it for now.

Now for the bad news.

The first 20 pages were free.
Now, to get the rest of the ride report, you're going to have to sign up for a subscription (paid)
at SummerOfStupid.com



































Just kidding!
Oh, man, wouldn't that be messed up??



Listen up - the bad news is...
(Count zeroblah and scary tweaker dude, brace yourselves... I'm sorry!)

I'm taking another break.
Repeat -
Taking another break.


This means no more updates until monday.


Part of the reason for the first break, was to prepare for this second break.
I was having a hard time transitioning from the OBCDR to the CDT.
Mostly, I wanted to just skip over all that and get to Colorado and the TAT (the best riding!).
BigWan told me to just drop the mouse and step away from the ride report until I can chill out and get back on track.

He tried to distract me.

matt: why don't you take a hot bath?
me: WTF? I hate baths.
matt: I thought women love baths?
me: no. baths suck.

matt: want to go to a movie?
me: no. movies suck.

matt: want to go out to dinner?
me: no. restaurants suck.

matt: maybe you should go shopping. buy some new clothes?
me: no. I hate shopping. new clothes suck.

matt: well, what the f**k do you want?
me: I want one of these!


Since I can't have a goat, I thought a nice dirt ride would be nice. Matt was all over that.


We've been working extra hours (BigWan, mostly) so we can squeeze in one last ride.
It feels like the weather is changing and this is our last chance to re-do those parts we missed on the Pacific Crest Quest.
I want to actually do those parts, 2up, without the ATGATT snow hiking.

Tomorrow we shoot up to Lassen and take the PCQ, South. Days 8, 7, and 6.

I wanted to go South to North, same as in July, but it's supposed to rain this weekend.
North to South maximizes our chance to ride the trail without rain.
We'll see how those steep declines work as inclines...

(Make mud your favorite!)


So, keep yourselves busy for the next few days.
Have a great weekend.
Why don't you go ride or something?
I promise I'll be back with an adjusted attitude and renewed enthusiasm for the whole thing. Cross my heart.


xoxo, LittleWan

You're doing great!

Except for that needlessly harsh comment about somebody going all "Nixels" - but it's ok, I understand. You're under RR stress - and no goat or Kevin Bacon to take you to your happy place.

Have fun on the ride

I'll be cookin' up a big batch of to throw around when you get back!

I ignored the different time zones when I was out last year, there was daylight and darkness..the rest didn't matter.

That little goat is cute, but these look like more fun:





I have info for Norm if you read this in time. Cedarville to Susanville and beyond on dirt.

Have fun on your little trip, LittleWan.
