Looks like a fun one, Marty. I've got plans to head east this weekend, but will head to Darrington if my trip gets cancelled.

If it is like last year, it's doable on a Wee but prolly much more fun on a TE. I did it on a TE250 last year.

There are some spots that will be tough on a Strom. I ride a 990 adv and have lots of dirt experience and have no problems on the course. You won't need a chart holder, we decided to ride as a group (or groups). Camping is good at a campground just west of the bluegrass grounds (Squire Creek). The first loop is around 90 miles and you will need to run that far before gas is available. I hope to see you there.

I plan on camping at said Squire Creek campground, probably get up there really early today and ride around a bit.

i'll be car camping and eating at a local restaurant in Darrington if anyone ones to join me.

I'll be in a Blue Hummer H2 towing the x-challenge..

great day for a ride..

Thanks to Marty and The Skagit Motorcycle club for putting on the ride.

I got up there early Saturday to do some camping and exploring on my own. I had a great time exploring some of the forest road spurs off of the Mt Loop Hwy.

Ran into this... could only be in Darrington .



Fantastic views today, and perfect riding weather.. wasnt too overly hot.. albeit there was a little dust..










very cool. mountain of sand..
