NMBL and I did something different this past weekend. We went to a racetrack. And we traveled up to Pemberton to do it. For those of you who haven’t heard of Pemberton, it’s a town just north or Whistler, BC’s most popular and famous ski resort. The trip up to Pemberton is done on the Sea-to-Sky Highway which, as we’ve written before, is a great stretch of highway to ride. It’s arguably the most popular ride among motorcyclists in Greater Vancouver! The ride up there offers spectacular scenery and fun curvy stretches of asphalt. So much fun!
I talked with our camp host, Charles, this morning. He’s a great guy who is absolutely passionate about the best places to travel and camp in Montana. He had some fantastic suggestions for roads to ride and no places to go. Specifically he suggested we get up to Glacier. We’re going to have to make our way back to Montana for more traveling. There’s just so much to see and we didn’t have enough time to see it. Continue reading “Colorado Adventure Day Eleven: Zootown”
Naches to Yakima was an easy go. We stopped for gas in Yakima and chatted with Mike a man I met in the Arco parking lot, asking first for directions and then discussing life in general. I looked over at NMBL for a second, felt something in my hand, and Mike had put $40 there! He had just won some money and wanted us to have breakfast on him. We paid it forward and tipped our waitress at Denny’s well. Thanks so much Mike! Continue reading “Colorado Adventure Day Two: Back on Track “

We woke up to ice on our bikes and tarps. Woke up might be the wrong turn of phrase. The cold kept both of us from actually having a good sleep. Fortunately neither of us was damp from the rain/ice as that would have made things worse. Being in a hammock was great but I was having issues with my under-quilt in particular and my feet were freezing as a result, even with wool socks and my good sleeping bag.

So, the hammock camping advice out there in the interwebs tells you all about making sure you don’t hang too taut. But, I haven’t seen anything about hanging too loose. Nada. Nothing. My advice: don’t do it.
