it should drop us 2 exits east of the pass. i was up there in a truck a few weeks ago. are we planning to go out gas up and then ride back or will we hit the pass and go home from there?

Yeah, I'd rather not slab it too. Would be fun to turn around and go back the way we came, but I can slab it back from the end hella quicker then I can from the beginning.

I'd be for that, but I would rather the "tards" have some fun on those backroads.

don't care which way we go. there are some fun back roads home from either side.

one possible bonus of going in from the i90 side would be gas on top of the pass only a couple miles from where we head into nature so we'd be starting off with fuller tanks.

i will try to find my 1 gal tank and get it bungied onto my fender.

guess the exit 38 fun kicked his ass a little so he is scurred he's gonna get brutalized on this one. i told him its more like tinkham tho so hopefully he comes out.

still no word from penpen so i'm thinkin she's oot. too bad too i was lookin forward to the sleep over...

Sweet.

From her words/actions, I would guess she's not really into FS roads. Which is cool, i'm hoping she invites me out once she gets her toyhauler set.

yeah i think she has her sights set on doing some real off roading. i know she had fun but the getting out and back kinda killed it for her.

shoot her a pm on pnw and let her know your down for hitting tougher stuff. i know she's lookin for folks that will go ride and crash with her once she has a hauler. someday i'll have a dirt bike and then its on like donkey kong! i'll probably never ride street again. much...

i think she was bored with tinkham. she said exit 38 was more fun. one run i'm hoping we can get in before the weather totally shits is colockum pass. i've heard it's pretty gnarly.

my understanding of colockum, based on adv rider ride reports, is it's not easy.
