A Bent Look at Self Contained Touring

On the Road Again Until August

Multnomah Falls, Columbia Gorge, Oregon

Today is my last day home for a month. I’ll be touring on the Slipstream in the Northwest. I though of taking the Laptop with me but have decided against it. We will be traveling self contained and Bennett has a penchant for Savage Camping. I doubt that there will be a lot of spots to use it along the way plus I don’t need the extra weight. So, I will see you again in August.

The route starts in Seattle, slides down to Portland. Then follows the Columbia River to Walla Walla.

From there we plan to work our way into Idaho and visit Coeur D’Alene. Then follow the Centennial Bike Path through Spokane and Iron Horse Trail back to Seattle. The total is around 1100 miles and 3 weeks.

Our secondary goal for this trip is to scout out the start of a cross country route for 2007. The weather will be warm, 90s, but we are hoping dry.
