    Time to finish up this thread?

    Turns out I didn't get to go to Glacier NP. As those of you in the PNW may have seen in newspaper or TV, we had a wildfire start in White Salmon area last week. My wife sent me this picture looking north from our front porch:

    By Thursday night there were flames over the ridge to the left just out of the photo - about a mile from our house. Understandably, she was a little nervous about the course of events. So instead of going north to Glacier, Friday morning I put on my boogie boots and hopped onto I-90 at Billings. 16 hours and about 800 miles later I was home.

    Fortunately, the wind was out of the east and the firefighters were able to get a backfire/fireline in place. This fire is now contained and all we had to deal with is smoke. No buildings destroyed.

    Had a chance to take Mary Margaret on her first ride in this sidecar - she seems to like it a lot. Her [VERY old and in need of replacement] riding gear sort of fits the color scheme.

    And the cat at one of our favorite wineries likes the rig too:

    All in all, a great trip. Had a lot of fun. Looking forward to more.

    How ya'll Duncan? Glad you got home safe and sound and your Missus likes the sidecar ride. Sharon is jealous and misses her Tub. Enjoy....

    Cheers...

    When I heard about the White Salmon fire I kinda figgered you might make a beeline home. Glad to hear the forest fire gods decided to spare your place. :clap
