At last there came a perfectly warm, sunny day in the Pacific Northwest, something so rare for the last nine months it could not possibly be spent indoors, quarantined, starting to smell. There was nothing, absolutely nothing more worthwhile to do than to take a ride. The question: Where-to? The easiest and one of few road-runs from the northeast corner of the Olympic Peninsula is “Tour-A" - a romp over the hill and down U.S. 101 along the Hood Canal, a big, long north-south leg of Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains to the west. A world away from Seattle, called in these parts “the dark side,” the first town to by-pass is Hadlock on Hwy. 19, where there’s this I.Q. test: Doing Tour-A well requires a hitch from Hadlock from Hwy. 19 over a couple miles to Hwy 20 along Discovery Bay to catch a few flowing twists up and over Eaglemount, a heights from which if you look fast you can see the bay's waters through the trees on the right. The trick is to hit that stretch without traffic ahead to slow you down and this day, partly thanks to the pandemic, I was living right - no motorhomes, no Priuses ahead, no members of the Anti-Destination League. (There's a good bit more to this report I've put a fair amount of effort into, but to hell with it - the process of adding words and photos here is a goat copulation - too much for this old guy. Don't understand how a site put up by a digital guru can be so difficult, but then I may simply be too stupid to grasp what's required.) WAIT, keep reading. If ya want.
