Here's the plan...what there is of it! :lol:

Meet at the Sedro Wooley Iron Skillet at 10:30 for a quick brunch. Head out to Mount Erie via backroads and return via Whidbey or backroads through LaConner and south.

Finalize the route at brunch?

Who's interested?

Me, I'll meet you at the usual place, Alington Chevron on 9 and 204th, and we can ride this up.

If you come down Whidbey you may run into traffic in Coupeville. Tomorrow is the second day of Musselfest. Also they have now lowered the speed limit to 45 as you approach the town on Hwy 20. The town Marshall is watching! Rich

Thanks for the heads up Dr. Rich. Last thing we need is a discussion with Marshall Dillon! ;)

IN!
I'll bring some brownies, George.

If you come down Whidbey ....

Who the HELL would go there? It's crawlin' with friggin' retirees and their chainsaws and crab pots.

.... the second day of Musselfest.

Sounds WAY freaky.

I do like the fact that you recognize that I am retired, that I do something constructive with my time and that I am controlling the Dungeness Crab population! Maybe if you would ever get out of Sacramento, you would find that there is clean air, beautiful scenery and people that have not done prison time!

Nice back-road ride today, other than the sand, drizzle and cold temps. ;)

Pan and I left Arlington on time...missing allrider by just a couple minutes. Followed the planned route north, adding in Old Day Creek road since we were running ahead of schedule. JamesW was warming up the breakfast booth when we pulled in the lot. Good eats, the Skillet is definitely a do-over. Niehart took one too many short cuts heading north and missed out on the first pie stop of the day! :lol:

A few pics from Mount Erie. Eagles were out today, we counted at least three pairs but the old point-n-shoot didn't have enough zoom to catch any good pics. Impressive sight nonetheless.

The crew at the top.

Never get tired of the views. :)

This is where we watched the Eagles, we had a 25 to 30 knot wind blowing strait at us. The Eagles were just floating and playing, very cool!
