    i'm so glad everyone made it home safe! that was the best weekend ever, i haven't thought about anything else since i got home. love you all, and i can't wait to see everyone again. i'm gonna write a ride report on my blog too, but it might be awhile because of the rigorous hemming and hawing process of making things i've written public. i'll link to it someday, promise. :nod :deal
    thanks for all the pictures and all the fun, and for being amazing people. i wish i could explain how much better my life is because i get to go on this ride with you guys, but maybe i don't have to because you already know <3

    Yes, we already know. And I hate to tell you this, but your blog URL is contained in every post you make here on ADV. ;)

    Great news! I took the truck to my beautiful mechanic today, and he fixed it in about 5 minutes, for free. First he adjusted the timing (it was off by less than a tooth), then he noticed that the Throttle Position Sensor was unplugged, and missing the little plastic tab that is supposed to hold it on. So he put a zip tie around it. The truck runs like a champ now! Woo hoo!

    If you happen to live in Portland, I HIGHLY recommend Steve at BMI Motors on SE Foster at 77th. He is the bomb. :clap

    Hi Ladies, Wow! What a fantastic weekend. One of the best I've had in a long time. I hated to leave. You all are great! Here are some photos. Some more posted on LP&#8217;s ride report!

    On Friday Happy in the Hood and I rode up to Paulina Lake and then FR21 to Red Mountain.

    Soso happy weekend! So not happy to be back at my desk!

    Crazy ride home. Nopochicken let me slow her down up OR-58 and twas beeaautiful. Saw some jazzy Salt Creek Falls. I locked myself out of someone's house in Silverton, tried breaking in with cornhole boards + ladder + ice scraper, failed! (Nachoclaws coulda climbed right up I bet). Walked millions of miles to find a phone. Got help from the police. Finally got in! Rode to Portland and my license plate rattled off somewhere! Ah! Always an adventure!!

    So pleased that a nice gal called nopochicken about the jacket she lost on the bump-a-bumps. See you all... soon!?!
