Great little RR

Nice report on Mt. Saint Helens. Been there, done that etc and about time to do it again. I do like the father/son thing. Good on you.
When the mountain blew on May 18, 1980 we were wood cutting in the Cascade Mountains of Oregon and could feel the ground shake while running the chainsaw. Heard on the radio on the trip home that it blew! Our house had 1/2" of ash in a day or two... but it was all good.
My son was 5 years old then and rode with me on the back of the trail 90 Honda. Now he's had a KTM (LC4 400cc?) dual-sport of his own for about 6 years now. He's in South Carolina and I'm in Oregon. His plan is to ride out here in September 2011 and have a long ride with dad. I'm counting the days as I've not seen him for several years. My grand daughters and daughters ride with me sometimes now, but not enough to suit me.
See you in June at the Hells Canyon ADV gathering. We're riding into Hells Canyon (Dug Bar on the Snake River-see on Google Earth-dug bar imnaha oregon). Went last year and again this year. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=622989
