SA Nancy - good luck with your ride... I'm sorry I had to bail from riding with you, but I cannot trust my health to adhere to a rigid schedule.

I wish you the best and have fun...

Nancy,

Had an awesome time riding with you... weather was great, roads were smooth, and company even better.

Have a great rest of your trip....looks like you're going to have a blast!

Here's a few shots of that spot we passed up on the way to the campground.

Mario

If we don't stick to the schedule (at least the part about getting on the ferry in Haines), I won't have a job waiting for me when I get back.........oh, wait, you don't have a job! So that's how one makes time to rest and kick back! I do it by limiting lots of days to less than 400 miles.

PS, hope to run across you somewhere in the (not so) frozen north!

Where the **** am I riding?

I just learned of whereamiriding.com yesterday, seems like a good thing, just registered. I do like tinyurl though, they have a new feature with a link for your browser that enables automatic 'tinyurling' with one click.

Hey Mario!
My first day of riding with you was a great send off....I spent my second day solo just having a blast and meeting some great people along the way.



And Mario cooked an awesome meal, even brought his own knife sharpener.


Chicken cooked over open fire.


Passed through Modoc thanks for JetDocX giving me a good route.


And found some pork


Mount Shasta was my constant companion


Made it to Crater Lake, where I frozen my butt off and was read the riot act about walking away from my campfire to pee.


That will go on my list of reasons to travel with someone.

Thinking of riding around the back of Mt Rainer tomorrow on the way to Seattle.

Portland to Vancouver on the 14 along the river then North on the 30/51, then the 25 and East on the 12 to the 410.

Can someone confirm that the 30/51 and 25 are paved?

NFD 25 that runs all the way north to 12 is paved. Hth

30 is paved and 51 is not. Some of my Bro's said 51 gets a quite a bit of a hump down the middle, but you can make it with no issues. Not sure how the road is this time of year. A lot of washed out roads this time of year down south and east of cascades. Maybe someone with real recent experience might pipe in. I'll ring them this afternoon. Hth S
