I really like what your are trying to do. I'm just not sure about how you are trying to do it. It's been a pressure working with you and the pleasure was all yours. If you need me I'll call ya..

Had a great time. Only took a few pictures and don't know when I will have time to post them.
Well, there's a reason that Rocky's V didn't wind up on it's side. She was following me and the weed eater around all day

Oh yeah. Looks like really good weather, tho.
That'll surely make the Tourist spending difference.

Maybe this weekend will buy you a new toy

Barlow will be awesome, likely with some BIG puddles.
I would, but I've been plotting Abbott Rd this Saturday.
TourPros did some of that loop with Craig early this year.

Which direction you riding it?
We might get done with Abbott on the East side early enough for something else.

Saturday or/and Sunday

There's some PM talk of riding in The Hood this weekend. I think Susi and I are game. I'll toss out a Saturday 10 am meetup time ... somewhere where a trailer can be unloaded in the vicinity of where we plan to ride. I'd be up for more around Bennett Pass ... or is there interesting riding off NF-44 ... or SE corner area of Gifford? AJ, can you chime in with some suggestions from your local knowledge?

SOLD !!
I'll offer up my place as meetup spot. 3 miles to E-free Super Gas.
And y'all know where it is.
I could ride Bennett Pass EVERY/ANY day. Barlow Rd, Flag Point Lookout, Jordan Creek?
It's all good!

The Hooligan Hounds LOVE parties
We just need a dual-cowl sidecar rig for them.

Excellent. Let's hammer this nail in a little deeper and say Bennett Pass SnoPark at 10 am on Saturday. 9:30 am for the E-free near AJ, 20 miles from said BPSP. Susi and I will spend Fri night at our place in White Salmon.
