Turbo Ted 2022 Shasta Roadster Meet Tour.

Post by ted heaton »

Turbo Ted Shasta Roadster Meet Tour. Day 1. Sunday June 19. 426 miles.
The route covers much of NE Oregon which has many wonderful driving roads.
Great first day of my 11 day Shasta tour. Sunny with afternoon clouds and short rain.
Bellevue to Walla Walla. 3 Snake River Dams and many great secondary roads
between the Snake and Walla Walla.
Weather looks perfect for the rest of the tour. Sunny, dry an upper 80's.

Turbo Ted Shasta Roadster Meet Tour. Day 2. Monday June 20, 336 miles.
Beautiful day. Mid 70, sunny and clear.
Drove 120 miles in the morning on the back roads between Hwy 12 and 124 west of Walla Walla.
Then West along the great open roads in the Horse Heaven Hills above the Columbia River to Goldendale.
Weighed the Prowler with a full tank of gas, spares, parts,
tools, luggage, etc. and result was decidedly "porky".

Turbo Ted Shasta Roadster Meet Tour. Day 4. Wednesday June 22, 313 miles.
Beautiful day. Mid 80s, sunny and clear.
From Baker City I drove various side roads S and W toward John Day.
Then a favorite drive across the middle of Oregon on 63 and 380 to Redmond. Over 100 miles and saw maybe 20 cars!!
The famous "Meatloaf Sandwiches" sign at Post is still present and refurbished!

Great shots as always Ted! You truly are making the most of your Roadster days, so thanks for bringing us along. That one pic where the road can be seen twisting out below speaks more than words. We are some fortunate and blessed human beings to live where we do with the things we have.

I'm curious what the Honda powered car gets for fuel economy, and does it require premium? Money well spent regardless!
