Ride to seattle this weekend

So I'm heading to seattle this weekend to catch the Cards play the Mariners Saturday night and thought I'd invite some along for the ride up and back.

I'm going up the East side of St. Helens and through Mt Ranier National park. Then back Sunday over Snoqualamie Pass, 821, and Yakima to back to Portland.

You can go to the game too if you want, but you're on your own for game tickets and accommodations.

I'm going to leave at like 7am Sat, roll out 84 up to Carson and the Windy Ridge road up past the Lewis river road to 12 to Randle then to Morton to meet up with a buddy from Seattle in Elbe around 11am. We'll then go out 706 to 123 to 410. I think it costs $20 bucks to get into the park and get to Redmond around 4 or so to make it to the game at 7. It's about 300 miles.

Then leave around 9 or so Sunday for the trip out 90, hit the 821 to yakima through the rez and bomb back 84.

Not for the faint of heart. The passes can be cold or rainy/foggy and some of that road isn't great going over the passes. That being said, I don't like to go too much over the speed limit, but not much under it either. I like to stop every hour to stretch so or for great vistas and at about 150miles for gas.

PM if you you want to go and we can work out a plan.
