While I was up there, the snowboarders were building their playground for their annual summer slide.. Setting logs, building jumps, figuring out where to put the big jumps.



An hour from Pasadena, in June..

Roadster Drive Today in the DATSHOND. 6-17-20. 415 miles.
Excellent longer drive on some of my favorite roads on the east side of the Cascades. Perfect weather. Sunny, About 80.
Explored 2 new to me roads. Lower Moses Coulee to Palisades. 16 miles of nice pavement before it turns to gravel.
Badger Mt Rd. N. of Wenatchee. First time in the roadster. Fine high speed road.
Lots of views of the Columbia River.

Roadster Drive Today. 6-18-20. 225 miles.
2 part drive today. Beautiful sunny warm day.
Started with 5 DROPS roadsters on a Seattle area scenic tour with views of Puget Sound.
Note that all the "old guy" drivers are masked up for Covid-19. :D :wink: Thanks to Art B. for leading the tour.
After the city drive I headed north to Edison for my favorite loop of the Skagit Valley.

On my cruise I spotted this MOPAR. I shouted "Is that a 440?!" and the young driver replied "NO it's 318 it's really slow!"

Refreshing as always to drive topless!

Ahh yes, these greaseballs left a nice trail of prints...a quick breath of "serenity now" with Quik detailer and all is well.
If I had a nice paint job there's no way I'd let them do that :mrgreen:

Roadster Drive Today. Barlow Pass. 6-22-20. 190 miles.
Another clear warm sunny day, so HAD to drive.
Had not driven the 68 SR20DET for some time. Ted Jr keeps it at his place but I had it for minor repairs.
The Mt Loop Highway in the Cascades from Granite Falls to end of pavement at Barlow Pass. 2360'.

125 mile jaunt today. Started at 4 Corners near Bozeman, MT and headed west to the quaint berg of Norris, then north towards Three Forks, MT but detoured west about half way there towards the Tobacco Root Mountains and the tiny town of Pony where my wife had a beer at the Pony Bar. Then back down to the highway and up to Three Forks, through town and down the frontage road thru Manhattan famous for Sir Scotts Oasis restaurant and other small things. Then south through town to the town of 800, Amsterdam, down along the creek and up and down the woop-dee-doos of the farmland to Norris road and home again to 4 Corners our unicorporated town. 87 degrees when we got home. The transplanted su U20 did great using 1/2 tank of gas oil is clean no leaks or problems. Yay!
