    I am spoiled rotten, ok I'll admit it, spoiled like you will not believe if you get out here you will see, but being as I am already out here and y'all are mostly in the eye 5 corridor. If you plan a ride out this way, I'll already be here, and I will welcome all as long as the group isn't huge.......like 4 or 5 bikes?

    Hey Canine,

    I live in Chimacum, 1/2 mile from the Cafe'. I'm on a DRZ400 and a 1150GS depending on the ride.
    Here are some shots to tickle the fancy of those that have not ridden our great Olympics. This is of the 2002 ride to Deer Park by a few of the original AdVriders.
    I'd love to hook up with you and others to ride out your way. :thumb

    I hope you don't mind me butting in here Canine or AlamedaK9:evil
    You do not need reservations for the Black Ball Ferry to Victoria especially when riding a bike.
    BTW, nowadays its better to have a Passport going to and from Canada.

    From my understanding untill 2006 drivers license and possible birth cert will get you in and out. Starting in 2006 you will need a passport for Canada and Mexico.

    Russian, good to hear from you. I thought with all that stuff you were selling in the flea market you maybe getting out of all of this. Keep an eye out were thinking about doing a ride up to Neah bay in a couple of weeks. You still out of the ride up to Alaska in 2006?

    I know it sounds like you can get on the ferry with a bike with no problems but since your coming from a long ways away I think I would make a reservation just in case.

    Hey GS,
    We are heading to Minn. on Wed. to move daughter to her new digs. Depends on when we get back.
    Nonetheless, you guys have a good time. There is always room for more rides before the real bad PNW weather hits.
    Maybe another ride to Deer Park and then over Bon Jon Pass to the Hood Canal??
    Or??
    Alaska still soes not look too good for me in 06' but ya never know....
    Take care

    yep make a reservation just in case. (if you can) but usually bikes can get on no problem. yes they are getting stickier, and stickier on passports. Here's another tidbit. used to have to pay cash only for the coho now you can pay with credit card! Seen lots of GS'rs run throuth town recently been nice here. Just did a 170mi tour to work in the new DRZ! including neah bay!

    Well,

    I don't see where anyone has taken up Canine on his offer of being a ride/guide by suggesting a potential date. So...
    How about Sunday, 7-31-2005 ??
    If the weather is reasonable, the Olympics are a pretty darn nice.
    What do you thinK?

    Sunday rides are excellent! I can be at ma ma's restaurant in the morning (ma ma's is on loncoln St across from Safeway) we'll discuss details there.

    PS park in back at Ma ma's you can park in street, but lots of bikes would be crowded.

    That would be a great ride that can only be spoiled by clouds as the views from atop are incredible.

    BTW, Do you know about a singletrack trail that goes right along the Olympic National Park edge out your way? I've heard some local guys talk about it but it's been a good 12 years ago when I over heard them talking.

    And for the twisty tarmac riders Highway SR-112 is pretty cool!

    Yes I know where most of the trails are at the base of the olympics, but alas, they are no longer continuous, gates, and no tresspassing signs now make dual sporting the only possible way to link the trails. but some are really really nice.
