The Eighth annual SPLASH motorcycle riding adventure in 2005 marks a big change.
We had a place to unpack for the entire weekend and enjoy our spirited ride in the outskirts of the volcano without the burden of saddlebags.
Our trip began on Thursday morning as we hitch onto the back roads from B.C. to Tacoma, WA. Bob and Debbie had a great BBQ and never faltered as generous hosts.
Sharing food and drink with everyone was quite an elixir. It was a treat to see Brandon and Duane up and about after their unfortunate incident. Really great to see them healing up. I am in awe of the hard work these guys have gone through during recovery.
After a night's rest Don, Debbie and I continued south toward Woodland with a preview ride of the backside of St. Helens before reaching the motel and the oasis that is Horseshoe Lake.
Loni and Chris took care of weary riders gathered from all points in the North West with a BBQ at the lakeside. We primed up Friday night, re-acquainting with like-minded craziness, anticipating the adventurous ride Saturday morning.
When we weren't ripping up the backroads of St. Helens or gouging out asphalt in the Gorge it was great to kick back at the lake to cool down. At the motel, a convenient swagger away, others stretched out for some socializing and usual mayhem.
