A little cooler today but it was not raining.

It was a slow ride today... But it's starting to turn green out there!



Crash is getting fast on the pick-up's, she knows that the camera is coming out and does not want to get caught napping on the side of the road!

Big Orange bike.......slow ride???? How is this POSSIBLE ??????


Quick Pick up, Crash, but still not fast enough for the camera-on-a-lanyard man.
Let's see, a good man might help pick the bike up,
but a good ADVer needs to get the pic first,
Oh, the decisions... Looks like we know which is more important, now

Darn straight, you have to also know that she was having a hard time picking her bike up because she was laughing at the same time and I was waiting for her to drop it again!

Nice day today.

Just wife & I & the dogs in the beater motorhome.

Hey Apple Jam-if you get over near Wamic can you do some scouting for me? I am looking for someplace I can get permission to set up my Tipi for a week in August NOT ON NATIONAL FOREST LAND. Needs to be BLM, State or private; trees, water and/or easy access to the east end of the Barlow Road would be a big plus!

If anyone is interested in a slow paced pavement ride, there will be a group leaving at 10:00 on Saturday from Big Jim's...

I had you in mind, and will bring proper maps, so I will know what is what.
Location is wifey's call, but I'm hinting more East (warmer, drier),
she's hinting more West (less driving in the gashog noisy beater).

We'll see what we come up with.
But if not this weekend, I'm planning on spending a lot of time riding all around Badger Wilderness and Barlow areas this Summer

I keep thinking about your Thursday group ride, but have yet to make it.
Is this the same group? I'm camping this whole weekend,
but this looks like a good ride for "el guapo nada", and you and he can talk CXs.

or "XB12R" and his GS1200. If he's in The Dalles this weekend,
he'll often meet for coffee Saturday morning at 9am at the Petite Province with a PNWRiders.com group (he's GS1200 on that forum) that is mostly pavement oriented.
Maybe stop by Petite Province at 9am on your way to Big Jim's at 10am?
I'd bet you'd find some riders there.......

Looking at the weather report, and I've only got a couple of guys who don't have other plans, I think we are going to wimp out on the ride this sat.

Hopefully we will be getting into reliably nice weather soon n
