Day 1, Ride Begins: From Missy
The ride begins! The KTM boys arrived at the parking lot.
We get all packed up and were off at 1130am.
As we were leaving Tracy hits the drop down bar at the parking lot and its flinging all over. He didn’t even notice. Haha. So, the day goes on and we ride the highway though Seattle and some back country to the border crossing.
Now last year the border crossing was a mess, so Kevin decided to go first. The normal questions were asked. Booze, weapons or pepper spray? Some of us lied and some of us told the truth. Hope we don’t get pulled over in Canada now that some of us are have lied (not naming names, Jeffrey and Jeff….).
So no major problems with the border, quick and easy.
The rest of the day was great riding and back dirt roads that went on forever.
Only one minor problem, Kevin popped the tubeless tire (I don’t know how you do that).
So quick fix and every so often a refill with air. But back on track. A couple bears were sighted and some deer as well.
We made it to a cute little camp by the river at about 930pm.
We set up the tents and cooked dinner. Well after the long day we were all very tired and hit the hay right after dinner. Great first day and many more to come.
