I had just gotten back from a week trip I took for my friend’s wedding in San Diego. Such an awesome trip got to spend a little time in the Manhattan/Hermosa Beach area too which was cool.
While I was in San Diego I intended to get my sailboat mooring ball permit renewed only to discover some tweaker had broken into my sailboat and stole a bunch of shit… gas tank, solar panel, swim ladder, registration papers, and some other smaller items. I leave my sailboat unlocked but the thief managed to still mangle the lock regardless… they’ve got some bad karma coming in hot.
That meant that once I got back to Packwood I needed to turn right around and drive back down to San Diego to fix that immediate problem and enjoy the rest of the summer thawing out.
The iphone photos & videos here are from my last day of riding with the boys I was able to make happen before heading south. A little hike to discover some White Pass backcountry.
Had the chance to participate in the 2015 Chilly Hilly bike ride put on by the Cascade Bike Club. We rode from Bellevue to the Seattle ferry docks where we caught the first ferry over to Bainbridge Island where the ride begins.
I’d been trying to make it out to this trail for a bit before I finally put my bike on top of the car and headed out. I was so fortunate because it had been raining for days so snowboarding wasn’t really very appetizing but this day it totally cleared up and make for a really epic solo exploration discovery ride.
