Not too sure what I was looking at- the picture was so small it was hard to make out any details. Is that a motorcycle?

We met up at Sudden Valley Shell and Jon pulled out his map to show us where we are heading.



Marble Mount Cham's favorite toilet, I swear every time he goes through there he takes a dump.



Winthrop for lunch.



Look who decides to show up. Riding to South Dakota to run a marathon.



Jon was like "Meh! I can run to South Dakota and ride the bike when I'm there!" and Cham was Yup!. They didn't say that, I just can't remember what made that face.



I went on to eat lunch as you can see in this picture



They wanted to look cool in this picture you can see they have their I'm awesome smug on.



I put on my sleeves so I can take my jacket off easier.



These guys were aching and decided to pop some drugs. Mrotrin for Jon and Aleve for Cham.



Lookout Colville I think? Cham got hit by a stinger, you would think he's smiling in the picture but he really is crying, you can't see tears because he's wearing sun glasses.




So we finally got to Metalline Falls and Cham went on to cry about camping and wants to stay on a comfy bed so they look at their phones for motel around.



I don't know why I took this picture.



The cheap motel





The best thing in Metalline Falls is not Metallica but the three dollar 22 oz. beer.



I was the first one the get up so I set up my super awesome Pelican case mod rope wrapped around the rear seat.



Gas and coffee stop at the next town, while waiting for Jon's breakfast sandwich I asked him "What if somebody wants to buy a Seahawks Sticker from this thing and you get a 9ers sticker instead? He tries it out puts two Quarters in the slot before he pushed the coins in I said your gonna get a Broncos sticker, we ended up laughing and everyone in the store turned around to look at the two idiots by the door. Sorry didn't occur at the time to take a picture. He went a second try and got a Seahawk and slapped it on his new helmet. Cham was waiting outside looking at his Sexting messages.



When we got to Walla Walla had lunch at Mill Creek Pub.



Cham got jealous on how cool I am and decided he wanted arm sleeves too.



Another gas stop Washougal



Finally got to Oregon I didn't realize until Jon wanted to stop for a selfie.
Cham was still fixing his do.



But you know who the most photogenic in this ride



Stayed the night in Dalles.



Jon was still happy even though we had a heated argument about Corona smelling skunky, I told him its the clear bottle and light shines through I told him it's science, he thought I was drunk off drinking a couple shots of Black Labels





Next day we got to Long Beach and Jon wanted to snort the bottle of pepper in his hand I told him don't do it they used a bottle of Corona it smells skunky.



After eating a plate oyster rockafellers Cham got two more plates of food he's a beast.



I got cheese steak sandwich.




Not 100% about the route but close, Jon lead the way pretty much the whole trip until he bailed, Me and Cham was gonna go to the shorter route from Aberdeen to Port Townsend to catch the 8:30 pm ferry but I took him to the other 101 highway in cold rain haha. We got in Forks to gas up around 7:30 pm he decided he's had enough and will stay in Forks, I asked the key to the bathroom to pee but the attendant said: "Oh it's locked but there is a restroom across the street" I was pissed off bailed out of the Forks gas station at 7:45 pm to catch the 11:05 ferr from Kingston. I've never ridden my bike so masterful in the rain while hoping I not pee in my pants. By masterful I meant full throttle on the straights and really slow on the bends haha. I got Port Angeles to check where I was, rolled into rest area looking for restroom but it was weird it's a cinema, so I decided to water the bushes in the parking lot. I looked at Google Maps and I was still a long ways to go. I finally got to the ferry and the booths were all closed I was told they were closed and I can find a hotel or drive around, they were still loading cars, someone at the booth ran out to tell me I can get in, there was room for 5 more motorcycles in the front. Had a great weekend.

I forgot how economical my bike was averaging 50 miles per gallon was doing $8-9 top offs. I was used to getting 20-25 and 16 mpg on the best riding days.

The Old Schoolhouse Brewery is nice little place. It's owned by an old friend of mine and I always stop there to see him when I go through Winthrop.

The guys stopped to "pop their drugs" in Colfax at the Chevron at the corner of Hwy 26 and 195. Only place I knew on sight.

I recognized the ant on the side of the building.
