Meet? What meet?......Just kidding! Great idea to start a new thread on this. I don't think anybody would read through the entire old one. I haven't made my reservations yet but I will be shortly. Hopefully, I'll have photo's and video of Laguna to share......

Hey Ken,thanks.
I appreciate the info.
I have stayed at the Red Lions before and I like the accommodations they have. It may cost a bit more but hey,it's my vacation so I guess I will splurge a bit!!:):)(ie: nice bar and eatery.)
There is also a mall within walking distance in Kelso and a nearby grocery,drug store and a Mac D's too,etc....
Let me know what you turn up......
Should we,who are north of Seattle meet somewhere to go over Stevens Pass,(or the North Cascades Hwy.)Or over I-90???
I dislike I-90 because of having to get involved in the metro heavy traffic to get to Snoqualmie Pass.

SBW PNW meet

Hey,riding across Stevens Pass sounds OK to me,maybe meet in Monroe some place about 11am or noon on the saturday?.Or earlier which would give us time to BS along the way,probably the earliest I could make Monroe would be around 10am.I totally agree with you on I-90,interstates are only good for making time:(..................ken.

...or we could meet in the Mount Vernon area and take Highway 9 down to Monroe. Anywho whatever we figure out we can double check the details as we get close to the date!!:):)

Sounds great ! I'm looking forward to it. Meeting in Monroe and going over Steven's Pass works great for me as I only live 20 min from Monroe.

I probably won't make my reservations for a couple months yet. July still seems a long ways off yet.

:( Sorry Auger and fellow Pac Northwesterners. As it stands for now, it doesn't look like I'll be attending. I have a bike I could borrow, but a few other things would have to fall into place for me to make it. I will keep you posted and the second I find out that I can go, I'm making my res at the Red Lion. I'm going to treat myself the RIGHT way. ;)

I don't think I'll be able to make it either. That's about the time I'm taking the trip below, and I'm coordinating with a friend in Spokane and we've been shooting for the last part of July, first part of Aug for a week.

Hey UFO sorry you probably can't be there. I tried to get this going as early as possible to give folks a chance to plan ahead but,the best laid plans of mice and men etc,etc..:D:)

I tried riding out towards St. Helens last weekend when it was nice but I started running into snow and there's still a lot of gravel on the roads from when they were icy. Fortunately there's still lots of time to scout it out.

James,thanx for the scouting report!!
Reminds me of a time when I lived in Oregon and went out for a Thanksgiving Day ride but finally had to turn around because the snow was starting to accumulate on the road!!:D:D:)
