    The closest place to wheel in the area is Tahuya. You can check out the map from this site.

    Nothing planned in the area this weekend but there is a run planned next weekend east of Seattle for an overnight trip.

    I already drank like a gallon of coffee, trying to reset my sleep pattern that I turned upside down to get up here.

    BTW, Wash Highway Patrol, don't fuck around, they LOVE speedtraps and really LOVE out of state folks, not me, but everyone they had was from out of state

    Those ferries run way late, that's cool, gonna head out to the island to ride in a bit, had breakfast at Beth's out on Aurora, cool place. Like how the morning news used Judas Priest for bumper music this morning. The weather girl needs to be a lot cuter, ours in the SF bay are hot. The weather looks awesome today. So they're gonna shut down the viaduct? Couldn't they come up with a better name than Viaductalyspe? Goofy.

    I like this city.

    The ferries around here are great - unless you have a tall rig. My Eurovan with a Thule box costs double because it is too tall. :eek: They also apply that BS to bikes on a roof rack. Lame.

    Beth's is a classic - good call. The weather is gonna be great today.

    Cheap tasty mexi food and stiff margaritas can be had at El Chupacabra. The jukebox there is great.

    Thanks Andrew for the tips and Seattle is cool, loads of pretty women, chatted up a few here and there. I ran some trails last night to see how well my new MTB lights held up out on Bainbridge, it got cold but i had a blast. I'm loading out and heading south to Mt, St. Helens, if I can find a cheap motel around there I may stay and run some MTB trails tomorrow. Your town is cool, I will be back.
