    Little run down on WETFEST. We wanted to just kick back and dig. Thats what we did. Lotsa beer and bacon. We did ride across Puget Island to check it out and rode around. Then stopped at the Roadkill bar and bs’d with them. Great couple! Should have done the ride they did Saturday in the backcountry though. Oh well next year! It was a nice and relaxing time and awesome to meet everyone from down there. Cheers!

    Enter October 13th. South sound boys are having a day ride so perfect time to dry run the trailer. Olympia to Pacific beach via back roads. And as usual these boys dont mess around. C2C55928-6DBC-42C9-9710-2A0FD6E1C2F9.jpeg C0553DE8-ADC6-4C43-9D50-D16606A5CE62.jpeg 8DC5D1C7-8CD2-4991-A4C3-42D14B901CED.jpeg Well I suppose this is bound to happen with a blast furnace coming out the exhaust. Opps! Other than this the trailer was good to 103mph. Of couse you didnt hear that from me cause I aint one to gossip. 7CA51B5A-026B-4FE9-A2F4-43956EFE8BCA.jpeg

    Well after we had lunch with the boys in Pacific beach we decided to part ways. They would blaze back and we toured down the coast towards Ocean Shores. 24E37B3C-DCA9-400C-B8E0-BA972F952DF4.jpeg BD1F765D-02B8-4724-8E64-778E824BDFD6.jpeg Stopped at one of our favs 1AA92F91-36F7-4F1C-8221-3DE6F3ACC6F6.jpeg then south down the beach further. Yes its salty and bad. Yes its a bit sketchy. But ohh so fun! 16CFDEE8-3860-412E-9CB8-09C00CA03BA5.jpeg We ended up grabbing a hotel room instead of heading home. Good call!! Next morning slabbed it home. Great little short one.

    With the blast furnace damge repaired and a heat shield installed it was time for a camp trip! October 21 8DACCAD6-64CC-4391-A1CB-F1DE6FA43ED8.jpeg Nice morning in Tacoma. Note: Touratech upper crash bars installed too 4ED2D9E8-65D7-4EEB-BBAE-E1B6625B49D8.jpeg so initial packing went like this. Change will follow 5F902A63-DBF4-4ED2-B3DB-C46C592E3EEC.jpeg And 85% of the time we go Stevens pass. Much better slab ride! ABA4C204-E151-4906-A185-E8F9D28F35F2.jpeg

But this Grocery store is cool and we always stop under the shade tree. 5DFBAF04-F5EC-4301-9574-A71EB7090D3F.jpeg And the locals are always talkative. This truck a fellow came over to look at the trailer and said in his draw..” hell thats pretty nice! You could load that up with beer and say F’ it and head up in the hills!” Oh boy..sure could! Hahahah! BA323743-9426-4EA9-8598-8D68C3F3839D.jpeg
