I think I'm going to be joining the Saturday morning group. My plans have gotten jumbled up the last couple days.

The weather looks to be very warm on Thursday for those traveling to the Tri-Cities and probably in the high 70s for those riding to Kamiah on Friday.

Anyone wishing to ride at a moderate pace is welcome to join my group leaving the Starbucks (Clearwater and 395) parking lot at 10:00 AM. Please have a full tank of gas and be ready to go by 9:50. I plan to have lunch in Pomeroy around noon.

Ride safe...see you in Kamiah.

Possible you'll catch up at a travel stop - since we''ll be about 1/2 hr ahead of you.

I hope everyone had a safe ride home. It was great seeing everyone again in spite of the cold rainy weather that seemed to be everywhere in the region this weekend but didn't stop over 30 riders from having a fun weekend. See you next year!

So, as we put another year of Kamiah in the books, here's my thoughts:

It was great to see everyone.

The weather again was shit, and I was soaked to the skin for the bulk of Friday, but I don't care- its still the best time I have had all year.

Elk City was cold and clammy, but we got there and had a nice lunch and gave the locals their first "group" of the season after a long winter.

Someone needs to call Grangeville and tell them to repave their two grades- until then Fuck Grangeville.

The Hub was off the chain as usual.

The Clearwater 12 was great as always, and the ride home was the only sunny and warm trip of the weekend.

As always a special thanks to mcrider007 for putting on the best "spring fling" in the PNW.

For myself, I'd like to thank PDXDev and riceman for ride leading, Slamster for being my sweep, and all of you for making my second year hosting a decent sized group a rousing success.

You all fuckin rock. Challenging weather, on challenging roads, and you all walked that shit off like a BOSS.

*bow*

Thanks, and until next year,
-Wolf-

Here are my photos ...


Friendly sheriffs showed up for our parking lot party



On the way to Elk City



The Elk City lunch spot was closed, but they opened for us. The owner turned on the grill, tried to light a fire in the wood stove but lost patience with 7 customers waiting for food. I said that she'd have another 6 or 8 bikes showing up in maybe 1/2 hr. And Joe's group showed up right on schedule.



A woman friend of the owner showed up to chat and was pressed into starting a fire (unsuccessful) and then waited on tables while the owner cooked. All cool ... but no heat in the place.


Chris, with aid from Russell, found an axe and split kindling right there in the cafe/bar.



Success on the wood stove heat, with a bit of visible smoke.



- more to come -
