Friday July 15, 2016. Three members and our rocker headed out at 8:00 to ride to Nationals. Down the Interstate to Hwy 20, across to Leavenworth, over Blewett Pass to Ellensburg where we had lunch at the Red Horse Diner, just because there were a lot of cars in the parking lot. Must be good, right? It was. Down Canyon Road to Yakima then across 24 and 240 down into Kennewick. A good time was had by all. Well done to the guys that rode together, the pack was tight most of the ride and not only did we have fun, we looked good doing it.
After a fun weekend hanging out with the brothers and sisters from other chapters we split up to head home. I rode down to Hwy 14 and across to Vancouver, WA. What a great ride. A really good breakfast at the Big T's Diner in Bingen, I highly recommend. The rest dragged the Interstate home because, well, that's their story. You can ask them.
