Went up to Seattle yesterday to help some friends move there Daughters stuff into a new place for the summer. Grabbed a quick bit to eat....



Rode the new 800GS home from Seattle. As soon as I pulled into the driveway, I put on a few new parts, center stand, new exhaust pipe, light guard. Bunch more stuff to get put on before this bike will be ready. It always takes time to get the ergonomics just right....





today I am packing up to the Hells Canyon ADV gathering in Enterprise, OR.

and doing some odds and ends around the house. Never ending house chores.


Then off to a Board meeting for the Alzheimer's Association of Oregon. My last one

Lots of details to wrap up this week, including a few projects at home so that I am ready to depart.


small plumbing project. Hardest part was deciding which toilet flushing system to get and install.



Then a stop at the bank to get some money changed, and my coin jar traded in for small bills.


And cleaning up my "office" area. Looking good for my renters....


And also had a final board meeting for the Alzheimer's Association of Oregon.
It has been a privilege to serve on the board for many years to help bring awareness, help to families having this disease, help focus on research for a cure to this terrible disease.

Photo to be posted soon.

Mark! I'm so stoked we are finally heading out to the Hells Canyon Ride tomorrow! We've been planning this for what seems for many months now. I worked my ass off this Monday and got my XR all ready for the ride


See you tomorrow morning and we'll change your tire on your TE610 before hitting the road

I'll probably view it about a half million times myself

After we got all set up....



Had some dinner off the grill, and the camp host got a fire going.



For a Wednesday night lots of ADVRs showed up to enjoy the time together and the riding in the Hells Canyon area. We are staying at the Log House Campground in Enterprise.

Good warm fire as the temps start to drop....





supposed to be in the low 40's or possibly in the high 30's. Welcome to Summer in Oregon


And we get a full moon rising over our fire gathering.



A young Swiss couple joined us around the fire. They are on a 2 1/2 month drive around the states!



Moonlit night near the mountains.



Before going to bed, had to watch a video called "riding the top of the world" about an indian Guy who rides to these high mountain passes in northern India. Great solo documentary

Nice night pictures.

People were up a sunrise talking about where they are going to ride today. So far I haven't seen Radioman I think he is getting some much needed rest.
