Who went to Fossil?

I wanted to do an "express run", so I left "K" town at 9:00 sharp and did the Fossil run with a bare minimum of stops and a fast tank bag snack at Fossil. Got back home at 3:30pm, or for Quixote, 15:30. Round trip mileage, 304. It was a great ride. Shearer's Bridge area was a zoo and Fossil was inundated with cruiser/Harley types. Otherwise, it was great. Only saw two cops, both on SR142 midway between Lyle and Klickitat; amazed that there wasn't a "roadside conference' and/or performance award!

So, did I see any of you guys out on the road? I saw a group with two or three Triumphs in it, but with the curves and rapid closing speeds, it was hard to tell if it was any of our gang.

There's nice, new rolled asphalt on 97... smooooth! Guess that's been going in for some time now, but it was a great surprise on a boring stretch of road.

Edited to add: there was a rare sighting of the elusive gnarly928 at the gas station in Murdock, WA; perhaps Mrs. gnarly, too, if my guess is correct.

Quixote traveled east to check out roads near Sumpter. The rest of us kept it local and short. Not much to report, just a nice hour or so run.

Saving my tires for next week's Fossil run and MotoGP.

0900 at the Riverenza. Fossil run afterward. Afterward break formation to check out Alder Creek Road > Winlock Road > Kahler Basin Road > OR 207 > Hardman. Bring survival gear.

"Why yes, I'll have another IPA..."

Oh for Christ's sake; come up from Detroit to Skyline. FSR 46 to FSR 48 to 197. Much better ride anyway.

[Another round here please, thank you.]

Nice little scoot-scoot into Washington today. A few of us were able to scratch that lean-grip itch before the holiday.

Happy 4th of July!

You can see my house from that location.

I've been helping with the move of the Klickitat food bank for a couple of days. That, and reinforcing fences to keep the deer from further destroying a couple of apple trees, fixing the sprinkler system and clearing the back two acres has worn me completely out!

Maybe next week won't be as busy. Glad you guys had fun!
