    I usually wait until the end of the trip to attempt these reports but always run out of time and have trouble remembering the details. We'll try something different this year and write and post as we go....what a concept. :evil

    This will be the 3rd long range trip for my now 9 year old son, wife, and I. Somehow we have managed to carve a month out for this trip and I couldn't happier. Well actually stressed out with all of the trip prep in addition to work wrap ups etc, but no complaints.


    Here's our photo of our setup that was taken at Overland Expo earlier this year.

    [​IMG]

    We've changed up some gear since then adding a new tent, replacing some worn out camping items, and a better system for capturing the moments of the trip. Trying to document the experiences is always challenging while you are in the "experience" without ruining the moment. Live and learn.

    We depart this coming Thursday June 16th and our first stop will be a friends farm near Petrolia. From there the plan is to ride the coast and camp on our way to Vancouver Island. As we head east we have the Kettle Valley Railway http://www.kettlevalleyrailway.ca/ in our sights and the rest is open for how we feel and weather conditions. Traveling with kids is a bit different as he is the final say when things get rough. He's ridden with me in hail, rain, snow (not our favorite) and cold when we get caught in it and we leave it up to him if we need to call it for the day or press on.

    Here's a link to our Spot locator.

    That's it for now.....let the games begin. Off to finish the final prep.

    More packing tonight and a final check of the bikes. Good Day Sacramento is talking to us tomorrow about our travels, specifically about how we do it as a family. Here's our mock camp setup in the back yard.

    Sandy will be doing a cooking demo and whatever else they want to see. We can't wait to get on the road.......Thursday....tick tock. :D

    Packed and ready to depart in 90 minutes. We've been asked to stop by Good Day Sacramento so they can give us a live sendoff. Thanks to my riding partner, PR person and wife for setting this up. Trying to get the word out about travel and specifically family travel....get up and do something. :D

    Til later.....

    Finally on the road....it's difficult to slow down from the everyday pace and take it all in. The little kid in me want s to do it all now, today. This is only day one, there's more to come.

    But first a little stop at a local morning show for a live sendoff. A short interview and then they watch usnas we ride off to begin our trip......well not really. We turned around and came right back asnJack wanted to see the inside of the studio. What 9 year old wouldn't??

    [​IMG]

    Fascinated....

    [​IMG]



    Now for our "real" departure from Sacramento. Complete with 35 mph cross winds....my favorite. Up highway 5 and cut west on 20 to make up a little time, 240+ miles today. Even 101 had a veracious head wind.

    Gotta feed this kid

    [​IMG]



    A quick stop at the beginning of the Avenue of the Giants

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]





    After 4 1/2 hous we arrived at Pepperwood Farms off the north end of the Avenue of the Giants near Scotia. Owned by a childhood friend of Sandy's and her husband who cut ties with corporate America a year ago and is making a go of being an organic farmer. No easy feat after seeing all the work they have done.

    [​IMG]

    We made it to Brookings Oregon the next day and are taking a few days to rest. The trip preparation plus long days at work have all 3 of us run down. A quick recharge and northward.

    More photos and video soon.

    After so many days off from updating this report it's hard to remember everything......damn Our stopover in Brookings provided some much needed rest. We pressed north with hopes of making it to Astoria.......uh huh. About an hour from Newport we realized that it wasn't going to happen. Traffic, weather, and a tired passenger had us looking for a camping spot. Meeting some other kids was on the agenda. It was fathers day as well....

    Always a beautiful sight

    [​IMG]

    My fathers day dinner......my wife rocks!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And a happy guy

    [​IMG]

    Jack took off to go meet some kids. He grabbed his guitar and took off in the direction of the park. Within minutes he had a new group of kids to hang out with for the night.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And a very tired guy at the end of the day

    [​IMG]

    Not so smart to leave "some" of the riding gear out. It rained a little that night and needless to say I wore a soggy helmet for the day.

    [​IMG]





    Perfect. All packed up and ready to go by 9:30, although we planned to leave by 8. Onward north....Seattle tonight?? Not likely
    But first a greasy breakfast to get the day started.

    [​IMG]




    A cold rainy ride up the coast. Astoria would be the spot for the night. Our favorite hotel underneath the bridge.

    We stopped in town for a quick lunch. 2 college girls walked in and one commented on the bikes. I figured it was just friendly conversation until she told us that she had a 650GS and a couple of dirt bikes. She lived on a boat in Astoria that she sailed down from the northern coast of Washington. Very cool to hear.

    Wow, a photo with all of us in it....

    OK, so today we will make Seattle. More mixed weather heading north (what a surprise) Tried to find Touratech on the way in to the city and was foiled by construction that eliminated the correct exit ramp and a GPS screen that drew a spaghetti map complete with uturn after uturn. We decided to head find our room for the night.

    The first hotel didn't fair so well as we got off the elevator and smelled the strong odor of pee. We walked to the room only to open the door and find people already in the room.....sleeping. (think goldie locks and the 3 bears)

    We went back down, got a refund, and stayed in the parking lot looking for another room on the ipad. Last minute rates worked for us and a new room was found.

    Seattle is one of Sandy's favorite cities.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Jack loves the monorail. The driver let him on the horn button a few times along the ride. What kid doesn't love that.

    [​IMG]

    Some friend we made at Overland Expo 2011 live in Seattle and invited us over for a BBQ. One of my favorite things about the adventure travel community is the people you meet and how they/we will open their homes to travelers. This is by far the best travel we do and people like this make it so.

    Our hosts Mike and Shannon have been on some amazing trips. Alaska, Baja, Mexico, etc. all with their Chiuaua on the back of one of the bikes.

    [​IMG]

    They were hosting another rider from southern California that needed a spot to stay while having some bike maintenance done before heading to Alaska.

    One of Mike's restored bikes. No coaxing was needed to get him to roll it out for a few photos.

    [​IMG]


    We said our goodbye's and went back to pack up. The next day we head for Vancouver Island. A family, ATKNUT here on ADV, invited us to come and camp at their farm there. They have 2 young sons that have traveled to Alaska and southern Mexico with them and should be able to swap some road stories with Jack.

    Even at 41 I still get excited to ride a motorbike on to a ferry.

    [​IMG]

    As we exited the ferry we rode north to where we were invited. Again a spaghetti map was drawn and we went a few miles out of our way to get there. As we rolled up we were met by Renee, big smile and welcome, and pointed us where to park. All I can say is what a place! My first sights as I was getting my helmet and gear off were a beautiful log home milled on site and built by them, a huge swimming/irrigation pond with a sail boat in it, horses, a donkey, a great dane, need I go on. After the introductions Jack spotted the fire truck that they use to pump and irrigate some of the grounds. That was the first stop for him. Our other host Henry and I swapped some stories and got to know each other over a few beers and the fire pit with the salmon and potatoes grilling.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Did I mention that there were a few dirt bikes too? Jack hadn't ridden a bike with a clutch yet, but he was about to learn.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Off and running

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    There was a little "testing" of the siren that still worked. I have to admit, I wanted to turn the lights on too. :lol3

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Jack decided he wanted to sleep on the boat for the night.

    [​IMG]

    As it turned out he slept until after 9am the next day.

    [​IMG]

    Some very cool animals too....

    What a goofball

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So cool to have another family that will take off with the kids and travel by motorcycle. We decided to head out for dinner the second night.

    [​IMG]

    A beautiful sight....

    [​IMG]

    Snacks

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We had an absolute blast with this family. None of us wanted to leave, but we needed to press on. There were talks of a trip south for them in the near future and they know that they now have a base camp in northern California if they need it.

    Thanks Henry, Renee, Quinten, and Tanner!

    Sunday June 2th

    We departed and headed towards Pemberton beyond Whistler. We stopped in Whistler to take a break and ended up staying here for the night. A hotel guy saw us parked and offered a discounted room if we needed it......tired, sore, sold! Lots of spoiled rich kids here. I miss the farm.......

    More as we go.....

    AdventureTrio, thank you for making my morning such a pleasant one! I grew up in Seattle and am truly enjoying your report. It brings back wonderful memories of the Pacific Northwest. I am especially touched by how you have involved your son in the adventure and by the special bond that the three of you have formed on the motorcycles. I too, am blessed with a wife who rides, and like yours, she is a great campsite chef as well!
    Cheers!

    Here's my second attempt at writing about the days happenings......was just about finished and hit 2 keys that deleted my entry.....:mad?


    After leaving the farm we headed east with our sights set on Whistler. Touristy I know but we've never been there and had a plan if it was too expensive.

    As I was getting rate information for hotels (not adventurous) an employee of a local hotel approached us and said he could get an employee rate for a fellow rider. Well within our budget for the week and far under Whistler rates we decided to take him up on it.

    A few more bikes on this ferry ride

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The guys enjoying the ride

    [​IMG]

    Our arrival in Whistler was shocking to say the least. Rich kids everywhere and crowds.....what are those. We walked around for a bit and let a kid be a kid.

    [​IMG]

    And took the usual destination photos

    [​IMG]

    It was at that time that we decided we "had" to get the bikes down here to takes some pics. Let's get up early and roll them in.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ok, enough of that. Let's get the hell outta here and go camp! Onward east....

    With our sights set on Lake Louise we departed ahem, early....10:30.

    Knowing full well that wasn't going to happen we pushed off and took highway 99 toward kamploops. All I can say is WOW, what a great road.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The reoccurring theme here is Jack and I in the photo, and Sandy NOT in the photo. Someone's got to take them.....


    In to Kamploops we roll. No camping as close as we need it for as late as it is. Damn, another motel. It doesn't mean we can't cookout like we're camping.

    A quick trip to the market, and some jetboil and fuel, and whala.....dinner


    [​IMG]

    The cooking done on the wall mount A/C unit.... I know, classy, but damn tasty.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The room kinda smells like,...well,.....cooked food. Ooops. A happy crew though

    [​IMG]

    We shall camp tomorrow! Full bellies, good night!

    Ok, Ok, Lake Louise it is. We rolled in about 3pm and got our site. This was all after I spent 2 hours chatting on and off with Jack about all of the kids he'll meet while camping. Me and my big mouth. This is the first time in history that a camp ground was less than half full in the middle of summer. Could it be all of the rain they have been getting.....um, yeah. I think it was.

    No kids and very few other campers. Good for solitude, not for a kid who needs some playmates. Note to self, less is more, keep your big mouth shut. :lol3

    We set up camp in a beautiful spot.

    [​IMG]

    And stood like horses under the trees while it rained for 90 minutes. We weren't ready to be stuck in the tents yet. Finally off for a walk. I've never stayed in a place surrounded by electric fence to keep the bears out. This would never fly in the U.S. This is defineately a Darwin fence.....don't touch stupid!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Back for dinner Sandy cooked up another perfect meal. Salmon (made us think and remenisce about Henry and Renee & the boys) and vegi's. Jack experimented with a torch made with sap from the tree wrapped around the stick with toilet paper. Success....

    [​IMG]

    Our meal

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the beautiful chef

    [​IMG]

    Some sap balls we used to start the fire later when the rain began again.

    [​IMG]

    The next day another hike, but this time he brought the guitar, "just in case"

    We walked to the nearby village, ie: shopping area where he set up shop playing for a while.

    [​IMG]

    I told him to put out a tip jar for gas money, but he just sat and played. So very cool to watch.

    More rain, more packing up in the rain with wet tents, rinse, repeat. Nothing to see here......

    Onward the next day to find a hot springs to stay at for the night. We ended up at Farimont Hot Springs back in B.C.

    This was after Sandy being run off the road by some ass hat on the way down. She had her exit plan ready to go when it happened and staying on pavement the whole way. Back in the lane she came and I spent the next 45 minutes coming up with 25 different ways to deal with this guy when he stopped. Luckilly we never saw him again....it would have delayed the trip a bit I'm sure.

    Moving on.......

    On the way down we came to the continental divide....again. We had to stop

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Someone actually took this photo so we could all be present. After the photo was taken Sandy fell over while mouting the bike for departure. When I said "should I get the camera?" our deal when anything happens and after finding out if everyone is ok, I was met with "help me get this fuc*%ng thing up!" I get it, just had to ask...


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Jack was getting used to the whole CD thing.

    Alberta, B.C. and so on....

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Once checked in at our room at the hot springs there was laundry to do, website to update, calls to make, and oh yeah, check out these springs.

    Our arrival in to Whitefish, not knowing what a tourist destination it was, worked out well. We found a state park sign and followed the road even though the sign said "full". We pulled up to the camp kiosk and asked if there were any spots to be had. The answer was no, but we can give you a list of other camp spots. A lady had dropped off her address and phone number if there were any overflow campers that needed a spot on her vacant land as well. Not really an option for us as there were no facilities, and no kids. We pulled aside to call some of the private camp grounds on the list. While I was on hold with one of them I noticed a sign on the bulletin board about room for "hiker/biker" campers. I knew what these were for, but a 5pm I thought we should ask if they would consider us for the space. As we talked to them about it we learned that they (the camp host and her husband) had been discussing the same thing. They showed us the spot and it was perfect. There was already a cyclist in the spot but room for 5 more tents if needed. Perfect......except I had run my mouth to Jack about "well, if it's full, surely there are kids".....when will I learn!??

    It was much smaller than I thought and the kids that were there were with family and already hooked up for the night.

    Off to make the rounds....

    [​IMG]


    And find a spot to play

    [​IMG]

    A fabulous dinner once again

    [​IMG]


    The cyclist that were camping there with us, a couple, kept to themselves. We made some small talk, but nothing solid. When night fell we heard them get in to their tent, but again no conversation.

    The next morning as we were packing up the guy came over and was checking out our packing and bikes etc. Turns out he used to have an F650 GS but sold it because he didn't ride it much. They were both from Montana (Bozeman) so I asked them the best route to Bozeman to avoid the holiday weekend traffic. He and his girlfriend became more chatty and our route was set. 10 minutes before leaving he came over and said "so, where are you staying in Bozeman?" My reply was, "maybe a motel or whatever. We'll see when we get there". He replied, "Do you want a house to stay in?" "Um, ok, where?" "You can stay at my house if you want. I won't be home until Sunday night but you are all welcome there if you need." I was shocked. "Uh, wow!, that would be great. Are you sure?" He told us where the hide a key was and gave us his cell number. He said there was beer and wine and not sure what else. He told us to do our laundry and where to sleep. I have to say, things like this are what make a trip. People looking out for people. Besides the farm on Vancouver Island, one of the coolest parts of the trip. His place was fantastic. A town house near everything . He even offered his tools if we needed them as he was a bicycle mechanic.

    Thank you Bozeman Bob!

    Bozeman to Grassy Lake


    We had been in touch with Ara and Spirit over the last few days about getting together somewhere in Wyoming. Ara did the legwork on finding a place to stay that was off the beaten path and called me to confirm. We set off with the GPS coordinates programmed and arrived in the perfect spot. They had been there for a night already and warned us of the mosquitos. We quickly set up camp just in time to beat them......but they came soon after with a vengence.

    So good to see an old friend

    Sandy, Jack, and I huddled in one tent while the thunder and lightning did its thing. Jack does not like lightning after the close strike we had in Nevada last year......I don't blame him.

    Spirit even let Jack try on his helmet as we were departing the final morning. So hard to say goodbye but we have plans to get back together soon

    [​IMG]


    As of Thursday July 7th we are in Logan Utah. We are planning to head to Boise tomorrow to visit a childhood friend of mine. From there through southern Oregon and across the northern California border to stay in McCloud for a few nights. Between here and there,......unknown.


    Enjoy

    Our plan was to head south for a few nights and stay in Jackson WY. We needed clean facilities without breaking the budget. After getting the sticker shock of a real room at this place, they offered us a spot in the older section of the property. A little haggling mid week and wala, we had a spot.

    [​IMG]

    There was even a spot to cook dinner. Trying to avoid restaurant food as much as possible. Luckily Sandy is the foodie/cook of the group otherwise it would be Chili or soup every night if I was by myself.

    [​IMG]

    Jack playing a little guitar before bed. (side note and proud dad moment) He's 9 years old. We are at the pool at this place and he's having a good time swimming around. In walks a young girl about his age. The next thing I know they are having a quiet conversation and talking of their respective travels. She's flirting and he's being a 9 year old boy, oblivious......perfect. But I was proud. When I said "buddy, you were talking with the cutest girl there" he says, "I know" I love the innosence and know it's not forever. Rock on dude!

    After a delicious dinner of Salmon, vegis, and potatoes, she whips this up.

    [​IMG]

    Peaches, mango, honey, and ginger....nice!


    Jack's birthday is in September and being that he is so in to aviation we have talked about taking him up for a flight. A few calls and speaking to the pilot about having him fly right seat netted us planning a little outing the next day.

    A little pre flight interview

    Jack flew the plane......alot! He was in heaven. So cool to watch your boy grow and enjoy. We feel fortunate being able to do this for him......beans and rice and some dirt camping the next few days......back to the budget. :lol3

    Our pilot enjoyed it too

    The next day's plan was to head to northern Utah and them maybe north to Idaho to see an old friend. For now it was back to rest up for what the next few days may bring....

    Our plan for the next few days was again very loose. Dip down into Utah and then up to Boise to visit an old friend and avoid Nevada. Central Oregon was a so so drive in an RV many years previous, but I knew there was some scenery that would be breathtaking on 2 wheels.

    Off to Logan Utah for the night. Why Logan, I don't know. A good dot on the map.

    Time to get on the rain gear....

    Jack was once again a trooper. The only thing that got to him was the bursts of lightning off to the north west of us. I assured him that I was watching the direction it was traveling and we were heading the other way. No photos to this destination.....pissing rain, aggressive drivers, one of which wrecked 5 cars in front of us after trying to run us off the road many miles back. I wish the helmet cam was running on that one.

    Logan Utah was good for laundry, wifi, and a fair nights sleep only to push off in the morning to Boise. None of us like the idea of interstate. We avoided it most all of the trip, but this was the only way to cram these miles in to the day.

    We caught up with a childhood friend of mine from nursery school. We attended school together all the way through high school and he even worked for me for a short period. His name is Gabe but nicknamed Goob since junior high.....and none of us can let that lie.

    Heat of gold. Great to see an old friend....

    Funny to have our boys play together

    Farewell my friend,....until next time.

    Onward in to Oregon. The closer west we went the more real that the end of the trip became. Fighting off the pit in my stomach that was leaving this freedom behind was tough to overcome. Monthlong travel, with my family, my best friend, was a true privilage. Damn I don't want it to end.

    Best burger of the trip here. Too bad the town is struggling as so many others during these tough times. We met a young guy traveling by RV with KTM on the back doing the ski instructor wanderer thing. 10 years ago I wouldn't of understood that, now I am envious. Rock on!


    No mistakes here....

    The destination was Lakeview Oregon. Some great views along the way.

    Home sweet home for the night. A nice parking lot to change final drive oil. Coors light and tools, what more can you ask for. :evil

    Closer to home tomorrow....
