I worked too many hours over the weekend and the county does not allow overtime, so I had to take Friday off.
What to do ... the TDM hasn't been riden in a while and the weather is good,
I geared up and headed out.
The goal was Umatilla Oregon, there is no gas stations along the way so I filled up in Walla Walla before heading out.
Going down the river was fairly un-eventfull. I fought the wind the entire way so I didn't get a chance to take any photos.
I got gas and a snack and then geared up headed for Pendleton.
The freeway from Umatilla to Pendleton is long and straight and really boring. I amused myself taking a photo riding down the freeway. 50 miles of straight freeway ...
110 miles done, I decided to try heading up Deadman pass and see if I can
get up and over to La-Grande, and then make the loop through Elgine and back
up and over the mountains. Long story short, I got to the top, the temperature
dropped probably 10 degrees and it was raining. Needless to say I got a photo
and turned around and headed back down to the valley
I hit the end of the Umatilla river loop and finally headed home. When I got home I logged just over 200 miles for the day. Not bad at all!
