    I thought I was going to have to cancel this trip . Due to a late discovered kidney stone I had few options: cancel, go and hope nothing happened, lithotripsy, or surgery.
    The ferry cancellation fee was over $850. OUCH!!
    I got a call from a friend of mine near Portland and he offered to drive me to the ferry in Bellingham if I could get the bike to him so I loaded Shrek in the trailer and drove up a week after my stent was removed.
    It's on

    Check out the front fork brace I made from crutches so the fork seals won't blow when tied down

    Fits the front 21" quite nicely. More Shrek mods are posted in "romancing the Shrek"

    After a long drive to the Columbia river gorge from So Cal Mt Hood was a welcome sight. By friend has 10 acres in the gorge and will store my truck and trailer. I can rest at his house and hit the ferry in Bellingham on Friday.
