I thought they looked a little clean... You need to post a current with all those crazy stickers.

Should be a SMIB sticker somewhere.

IdahoSam comes for a ride

Sam and I had a great ride through Mexico and Belize last year. So while I was back, he decided to ride over so I could show him some of the Wetside of the mountains. Of course I laughed at the timing as it was the hottest day of the year when he rode over.

Just a few more photos to add to the video.....

We met up Friday am and headed up the Columbia River Gorge.



Riding out the Windy Ridge hwy 99 road.. toward Mt Saint Helens.



Amazing to me how much of the devastation you can still see after 30 years....





Very Cool view of the mountain, and it was Hot and Sunny for Sam.



Mt Adams in the distance

[IMG][/IMG]

We stayed the night in Ashville, Wa and then rode into the Mt Rainier National Park in the morning.



Sam checking in online.





Wahooo! Cool National Parks in my own area. Sam had never been there.





Mt Rainier





Sam got his Junior Ranger badge.





And a photo for LadyBug



Then a stop at the LeMay Auto Museum













over the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.



waiting for the Ferry in Port Townsend



And a "sunny" Western Washington day.

Why am I picturing a story by Sam about youthful indiscretion in a car "just like this one"?

Nice video and It's great seeing the two of you riding together again.

Thanks for the flowers. Keep taking time to enjoy the little things along the way.

I'm glad Sam got his kitty out for some fresh air and fun.

Looking forward to seeing what the two you come up with in the N. Cascades. When you get to Winthrop there's a nice ice cream stop there.
