You should be riding east then, It is sunny over here right now, but that could change in 5 minutes
I have been asked to post for the riders meeting in Morton that Chanderjeet and Johnny Drunkard will be 2 hours late arriving in Morton.
That could change also. Minimum two hours late.
Sweet. Now I have time to pick up my re-sprung, re-gasketed, re-bearinged 640A!!!!
Text info from Fat Toney waiting in Morton.
Johnny Drunkard and Chanderjeet left Elbe at 4:30 my guess is that puts them in Morton around 6:00
All I know for now.
And then in Woodland at around 7:30.
I am starting to get the feeling that a PDX gather may not happen tonight....
Text from Fat Toney.
Johnny Drunkard and Chanderjeet have met group in Morton
5 minutes ago....
My guess is Woodland (if they are heading there) by 8;00...
They had discussed staying at the Fat Ones place in Chehalis.
Will post when info comes in.
It's too bad they couldn't have taken FS25 down to Stevenson and then down 14 to Vancouver to Portland. It would keep them off the interstate for a long time.
Chanderjeet, Camogreg, and Helikron headed north on I-5 at Highway 12 at about 6:45...sounds like the plan is for them to meet with Jmetteer in woodland, wa...then ride with him by car to a Portland Pub to meet the crew...
I followed CJ on Highway 12 between 50-70 mph for about 45miles and he handled the vstrom like he'd been riding it for years...he is all ADV...
I talked with CamoGreg for a few hours...since we had some time on our hands...He is planning to follow along with CJ for the next couple of days...all is well...and the adventure is off to a great start...only problem is...the rain...really hard rain...and CJ's shoes filled up with water...in that they stopped a few times and he was able to dump water out of them...seriously...so if any of you guys have a extra pair of something gortex Im sure it would come in handy....
What size are his feet?
I have a pair of Tourmaster waterproof boots that he can use and I'll stick to my dirt boots until he's done...

Got 2 pair of aerostich boot covers, they cover like a gator but leave the bottom of the boot ucovered for traction. I could send the large set whereever is needed. Also they pack very small.
What size shoe does he wear?
Boots have been provided
As far as I know, after last night - they (CJ, Rogue1, CamoGreg, ?) are heading east from Woodland, looping through the gorge, and heading out of town. CJ had to be in San Fran by *Friday*, and I think the slow start put some need into his schedule. I was going to take off today, but they sounded like they had a route planned, and were just trying to work out the details. CJ has to be in Seattle to return by the 28th of October. Time's ticking if he plans on going to NYC and back through the 17,000 suggested routed and points of interest that "He's has to see!!!"
Pleasure to meet Chris, knary, RMac, Helikron, Rogue1, CamoGreg (again), jmetter, and Mrs. jmetter and jmetter's friend (forget the name - sorry!).
So, unless I am mistaken, those kids will be on their way today - may be taking 5 to Grants Pass, 199 to 101 and then 101 or 1 to SF. Rogue1 was thinking maybe east side of the Cascades, but there are snow advisories today for the Cascades, and snow levels are reported to be dropping to 3,500' over the next few days. I realize that Chris is at home in the the big mountains, but most roads I saw pics of are not paved. Potential black ice on asphalt would give *me* pause. knary was suggesting the 5/199/101 route which would be sweet - big trees, and beautiful Coast Range and coastal ride to S.F.. I'm sure Chris will figure it out alright....
Best of luck to you Chris - be safe, ride well, and don't let you itinerary prevent you from stopping to smell the sagebrush. It smells much better than Iowa.
+1 - a good "Tour de California" start right there
I still am expecting CJ to roll into SF tomorrow, and he is staying with me in the Presidio. I put a post in the regionals, but I didn't get much response about a get together tomorrow night. Maybe it would be better to host whoever is coming along with him on the ride at my place, and let the weary travelers rest?
Ideas, suggetions are welcome and appreciated.
