I'm looking for new places to take some day rides.  Need some new scenery to see and new roads to conquer.  Suggestions? :4w:

593 miles.  Iíll need to break that up (and wait for the snow to melt) but it looks like an awesome ride.  I'll put it on the list for this summer.  Thanks.

Throw it on a trailer, drive it up to Disgusta, MT and drive it through Glacier.

I like driving on the Olympic Peninsula as well.

Itís broken up into sections for you.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Did a lap around south Whidbey on Tues.  Weather was iffy and there were patches of black ice to deal with.  Maybe not my smartest move but I made it home alive.

Maybe Chuckanut next dry payment day.

Extend that by turning east on FR90 before Swift Reservoir, over Curly Cr. Rd. to Carson and Hwy 14 west to I-5.  More asphalt scenery and curves.

Both areas here are good rides, just be careful as there is some asphalt heaving in some areas.😉

Street legal.  My bike is dual sport and is quite capable in gnarly terrain, my old body however, not so much.  I prefer blacktop, hard packed gravel or dirt.  Iím not a fan of miles of loose gravel and Iíd rather not ride roads where I need a mouth guard to keep my teeth from rattling.

That said, Iíll probably do some of the Joe Watt when that opens.
