It was a GREAT ride!! Thanks for the timing. A neat spot to go to also; I'd never been there before.

I didn't leave Hood River until about 12:30 and flew the Forest Pavers to Detroit, then slabbed 22/20 the rest of the way to Bend. The bottom straight part of the gravel on the road up the hill was great, I had to slow down for all the cows on the other side of that Cattle Guard, though. Got some fresh shit on my tire & under my fender....phew!! Wanted to fly by 'em, but don't like to spook Livestock, + they might think they're deer and jump in front of me and commit suicide. No Paragliders that night.

Got into The Dalles to meet my wife, from Hwy 97/197, @ 8:45pm, after my Burger King stop in Madras. 450 miles; 8 hours 15 minutes, including two 1/2 hour food breaks.

I think I might show off some of Oregon right near home. I took a long enough ride to pick it up, I think.

You PDXers listening?? I'm gonna make it easy and sweet for y'all. I WILL suggest you take Hwy 26, to Zig Zag, through Lolo Pass, just to take the long sweet way. Sweeeeet one lane Forest Paver there, booooy!!

I looked at the rules first! Gotta play fair, mama always said!!
But I will post a link to this Thread in our local PNW Forum to encourage our locals to take part
