I'm not certain we'd make the red barn though...
If we did Bluett I'd sniff out a rabbit trail along the way and add another detour.😆
Bunch of the group are first time Monkeybutt (-ers?) So they may not be favorable to missing lunch. I can ask the group.

Wrap up...
Excellent Monkeybutt turnout this year. I didn't get a number on it but I'd say it looked like the biggest ever.

Our LEGIT unofficial Monkeybutt ride route was the Cascade loop (we ran one leg of the Monkeybuttbeing highway 20 back home). We had very few bear sightings and a lot less traffic doing the "backwards" route through the Cascades. Didn't make my favorite food stop in Cashmere (Country Boys BBQ is closed now on Sundays) but we ate at the Big Y in Peshastin which is still decent.

Hit the boat launch along the Columbia for our wet vests and i nearly took a plunge due to the slime on the boat ramp (race boots don't have much traction)! As it was plenty warm, that felt good and the guys that didnt' have 'em were a bit jealous. We made a stop at the old fuel station in Winthrop before we skipped Mazama store since we had 7 bikes and it was quicker to use the 2 stations (the ethanol free peeps used the old station in town, as it now carries it).

We checked out the brewery but it was packed, so we hit the road. All in all, it was a great time... low stress and traffic, and it was 6:30 out the door and 8:30 back home again!
