A Few Of Our Favorite Shots From Our Annual Ride Through The Pacific Northwest, With A Special Guest

 

Recently, Road Dirt’s founder, senior editor, chief cook and bottle washer Rob Brooks flew 3,000 miles from his Georgia home to Wenatchee, Washington to join me and eight others on our annual seven day, 1,500+ mile tour of the upper left.  I promised him blue Pacific Northwest skies, great food and a memorable experience.

One out of three isn’t bad.

Rob tasked himself with writing his version of what happened.  However, to beat him to the story, it involved rain, sleet, hail, fog, more rain, dodging snow, chip seal, an electric fence, an electric bike, failing motorcycle electrics, a bumpy ATV explore and some light spelunking.  You can read about it later here on RoadDirt.tv.

Until then, here is my version of what happened, in pictures.

    Rob really could not have experienced the PNW any better way than with the weather and conditions we experienced. Fantastic to have shared in that week.

    Maybe the question isn’t if Rob will do it again but if you’ll be coming out to Georgia to do the same? 😁 great article Ted sounds like a fun trip with cliche Pac NW weather haha

      If I travel to Georgia, I will make time to see you Whitney. Although I’m not sure I can fake the accent.

    Yes…..a most excellent adventure! Busyiny myself now with several “honey do’s” so I can earn my “hall pass” in preparation for the Birch Bay/ Discovery Bay/ Long Beach/ Morning Song loop ….. a must when the triple digits temps of Eastern Washington settle in…..this will be a spur of the moment excursion with the fraternity of the willing when the “weather window” is wide open. Hey Rob….fly back out for part 2 of the Summer of COVID….then there’s always 3, 4 and 5……
