Was a pleasure, I left a day early, lost my water bottle and, left a 2/3rds full bottle of jack daniels in the Freezer, Hope it was enjoyed.


Grinns and Apple Jam thanks for picking up my bike for me.

For those who missed it, missed an amazing lightning storm, and the firs time I can remember, when it actually rained HARD at WetFest!! (only for a short time, but it was dumping!!)


Oh yeah, and I got the best photos With my iPhone4, no less


Some of the best shots...


My favorite for composition


And this was one of those "HOLY SHIT! Maybe I should not be standing out in the middle of the field taking photos" moments....


My guard dog... Spartacus. Hopefully he was nice enough to everyone...



Anyway, I have more pics on the way, these were just some of the phone pics I uploaded first

Fun as always, nice to meet everyone, although I may have already forgotten names

and howzabout that RAIN!?

small rivers ran down the streets and parking lots,,at my sister's motel,,half the occupants came outside to watch the light show! I didn't take any pics,,but we did cover my bike!

I probably should have taken more pics, but the route's pretty familiar to me. I've probably got a pic of everry DS I've owned in this spot:


Chuck (left) and Tori on the face of Chumstick:


The obligatory 'Tori Fall Down' pic:



I've got a 'Chuck Fall Down' pic too, but it doesn't seem to have loaded..... maybe later. The Saturday night thunderstorm started several fires, one out by Dryden, one up Number 1 Canyon which (as of last night) had about 30 houses under evacuation orders, and (looks like) one in the Mission Creek/Devil's Gulch area. We might get FR7100/Mission Creek reopened if the FS has to get firefighters in. Good news, bad news.

I had a great time, should have stayed Friday night too I guess. Sunday was cloudy and damp, and most people had packed up and left by noon, which was when the sun came back out.

FIRE UPDATE:

Lightning Strikes Sept 8-9 Wenatchee Valley



Above Wenatchee No 1 and No 2 Cyn are burning, 179 homes on Level 3 evacuation, flames visible from town. On the drive home from work I saw flames perhaps above Sand Cr- for those who do not know that is between Cashmere and 9712 that goes through Haney Mdw. As well I heard of a fire north of Hwy 2 in Williams Canyon near Dryden- not far from Nahahum and Chumstick.

Hopefully the fire involves the roaded and logged areas and leaves the old growth in Devils Gulch, above 9712 and Tronsen Ridge untouched. I logged in Sand Cr on Longview land in the 80s, there is a lot of doghair timber up there. Talk of '94 makes me queasy! In '94 I was helping evacuate friends in Cashmere by the Fairground and looked up at fire coming down Brender. The fire ran in 4 hrs from Tumwater, over Icicle Ridge, through Icicle (10 homes burned) over Wedge and across 97 (13 homes- poof, and a guy I knew stood on his roof and saved his home using a garden hose) up and across and down into the drainages such as Brender. That night, after a day of moving friends from various parts of the County out of the way of fire, I stood in Leavenworth and watched the old growth torch off across Icicle Ridge, Snow Cr, etc...

Howdy All,

Had a great time at this years WetFest, small group but quality folks who showed up. I didn't take many photos but I'll post some that I took from the summit of Chumstick Mountain a bit later.

I'm sorry I didn't make this, was choice between this and another ride I've got planned, sometimes things don't pan out. Looks like there wasn't a lack of excitement.

So it turns out the big blister on my calf is not a burn...

When I scampered up to the top of the ridge to take pictures of the lightning storm on Saturday, I must have tagged some poison oak

Thanks 1911fan & Huzar

Had a great time . Was welcomed to the gun club on Friday by a 21 gun salute by our own Mr Cob,
who didn't know what to do with the peace symbol cookie I gave him

After a ride around Leavenworth and a semi pot luck supper . We were entertained by an incredible thunder and lightening show.

I used the excuse of a northern rally gathering to draw my sister across the border for a visit.
It worked!,,I did not spend much time with the miscreants, but I did get SweetSixty

on the back of a motosickle


for the first time in 40 years or so, and she LIKED IT!

thank you Direwoof

and that spangled drongo on the KLR

for attending to us!


Marcin & 1911fan,,
Thanks for putting this together, I'd have hung out and met more of you,,but I had such a good time seeing my sis after so many years,,we pissed the weekend away together,,and when we were out shopping, she found a Colt 1911 with laser sight,,clear plastic toy pistol that she wanted to buy for 1911 fan,,never having met him, and after my explaining the 1911 thing,,too funny!
but as you now know,,we did not make it back up the hill after the certain death warnings of fires and lightning strikes,,,,but the thought was there!
Anyhow,,thanks for having us to your area,,we had a good time!
Glad nobody got lit up,,what a show!
We worried about you ff's turning into a string of christmas lights,,flashing from tent to tent, only stopping at the tents without metal poles,,a total flash of melting aluminum and nylon across a span of imaginable lengths,,,
all seen and imagined,,,from the safety of the motel's covered entry way,,

Happy Trails

Thanks Huzar and 1911 fan for a great time.

Marcin - The 'Rebel Yell' was all right but not as good as 'Buffalo Trace'. Which I bought because I liked the label. I know another poor reason to purchase bourbon. Oh well, batting 500 is pretty good for me.

To all the other inmates there - what a grand time and group. Good riding, good company, good liquor and great stories.

Looking forward to the next time it "comes around on the guitar".

'till then, Happy Trails
