Roadster Drive today. Sunday Nov 1 2020. Skagit Valley. 206 miles.
A sunny warm (60) very clear Fall day in the PNW.
Drove the Skagit Valley loop to Samish Island.
The air was exceptionally clear with Mt Baker very bright.
Drove Norman road (one of the best in the valley) 4 times!

Roadster Drive Today. Monday. 11-2-20. Paradise on Mt Rainier. 238 miles.
The last day of the beautiful sunny warm Fall weather in the PNW.
Forecast for Sunrise (5400') was 50. Amazing for this late in the year.
Forecast was right. Even warmer. Cold and snow by Thursday so the Park will probably close until Spring.
Got there just ahead of the clouds.

Nice Fall day in the PNW. Balmy mid 50's. Some clouds and sun.
Short drive north toward Granite Falls along the Cascade Range foothills.

Ted.

Ted, I think I asked this before but I don't recall. What color is that paint?

Ted, was that Minneapolis Moline tractor for sale? It looks like the paint on it is probably original. It could probably sell for more than my roadster

It was so hot here in southern NH that I was forced to run over to the Maine coast for relief.
