Monday ride

Nice day and no particular itinerary,midday I decided to head toward Mt Saint Helens. 5 north to exit 48 is my plan so away I go. Iím a conservative rider generally at or slightly below limit is fine for me. Off the exit at 48 I stop at the little store next to the Pacific Pride. Noticed a truck from the place I used to work for parked in the lot. I parked next to the building as my buddy from work walked out. Hadnít seen him in about a year so we stopped to talk. As usual things at work were horrible,yea whatís new. Glad Iím retired.Good thing he was there cause I need a helper this Saturday to help me put the engine/trans back in my 52 Ford F1. He agreed. On the road itís a generally slow uphill climb till you get closer to the mountain. Iíve been to all the visitor centers before so I just decided to ride till I felt like turning around. Had a nice easy,scenic ride and pulled over at one of the roadside visitors centers to get off and stretch a bit and took in the view of the mountain from there. Had a few cookies and my favorite Dr Pepper. Crystal clear day. Had some kids come by wanting a ride but I was ready to head out. Almost uneventful ride back till I got close to Longview and had a Honda Civic wanting to go. How embarrassing. He was cruising at 60 and puts it in neutral and raps it a few times. He gave a signal and hits it. I counted to 5, downshifted once and absolutely spanked his butt. A hollow victory given what he was driving but I felt he needed humbling. Rest of the ride home no issues so I parked in the shop,did my post trip and called it a good day.
