WFO was a blast. The organizers Hal, Iggy and everyone else deserve a huge Thank You. clapping.gif

I took off Friday the 16th with no real plans or directions in mind.

Day 1 took me up thru Fresno and 41/49 thru Angels Camp and Ebbetís pass.








Day 2 took me around Lake Tahoe and Lake Almanor










Day 3 I made it to Portland

Donít know if you can see this picture but I stopped on a roadside scale in Oregon and weighed in at 950 pounds. I had a full tank and a full load of gear.


Sister Mountains




Day 4 made it to Eugene. Went up the twisties to the coast in Tillamook then down to Florence

Remind me why I don't live out there.... We do have some great roads here in the east (NC, GA, TN, etc.) but the scenery just isn't the same. Thanks for the photos.

Excellent! You put some miles on.. and the 950 total weight is somewhat eye-opening. That's alot of mass to slow and accelerate. You must pack like Ms. dCarver! rolleyes.gif
Walked away Posted ImagePosted Image Is it really crashing if you don't fall down?--
I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon. It's not who rides the furthest in a day, but rather in a lifetime. CBA member #1, IBA #31845 and very proud of both.

Great pics! Looks like you got a little bit of everything in on this trip!! cool.gif

Live simply, Love generously, Care deeply, Speak kindly.

A journey is best measured in friends rather than miles.

Great pictures and a well done report. The ride to the lost coast was something, right?

Yes we tried to keep up for as long as possible. By the time we hit the 3 Fairlaner was gone and we missed the turn to the lunch stop. I ended up finishing the ride with Petey and John from Texas.

Great to have met you on 96 Dan! Great pics, too. Judy loves the wrapter, and I've become somewhat expert in getting it secured on her ponytail after she gets it started.
