    I don't have a good map handy, so this is from memory. Check a paper map before you go.

    Follow Orcas out of the park (or, for a less steep hill, take a right after one block of steep uphill, I...

    It's been a long time since I was out that way but I think you'll find less traffic if you take the Kingston ferry and take back roads as much as possible. Not sure how you'll get over the Hood...

    It was hard to find my first job after I moved to Seattle. Took longer than I expected, and I was running my savings down. It wasn't a comfortable situation. Part of that was that I didn't know...

    Tech jobs are spread all over the metro area. Rents have been on the rise for a couple years all over Seattle, even the lower rent areas are fairly expensive but if you're working in tech this won't...

    I didn't feel like the traffic was too bad the few times I've done it on summer weekends, definitely better than Stevens Pass. Better to go midweek if possible but I wouldn't hesitate to go on a...

    The most comfortable pack I've ever had was an Osprey. I hiked across the Cascade Range with one, loaded down with a lot of gear.

    On the other hand, there's a lot more to riding a bike than just going fast. People who only do intervals have an impoverished experience of cycling.

    They're almost unavoidable in Seattle. Our steepest paved road is 26 % and some change according to DOT. It's not even fun to walk down the sidewalk in the rain. Most places where people live are...
  12. Leave a bike out in the snow overnight?

    How bad an idea is that?

    I got invited to go camping this weekend. The road is closed about five miles from the point we're going to hike in from, but supposedly it's bare to that point. So the...

    I got a down vest at Costco for $35. It stuffs into an old silnylon sack I have, and that fits securely into a bottle cage. Below freezing, sometimes I'll wear the vest over my jacket.

    Put your bike in your car and go somewhere new and interesting. Then enjoy a long ride there.

    I'm a DIYer, but there's no reason to do much on the bike myself beyond fixing flats and lubing the chain. If I wanted to turn wrenches I would have been a mechanic, I have better things to do with...

    If you like the Miyata, keep it. You already know it fits you well, the other bike might or might not.

    I guess if you do the Iron Horse, you should make a detour to see Stampede Pass. It won't set you back more than 10 (?) miles. Seattle and Tacoma have always had a rivalry; in "historical times"...

    You should always take "if it were me ..." with a grain of salt, and that includes mine. You have a lot of reasons for doing this trip, stuff that doesn't apply to the rest of us, so the things that...

    I was almost on the Arlington/Darrington Road that morning. Still has me a little spooked.

    The towns of Oso and Darrington lost a lot of people and this has hit the survivors hard. :(

    This is the route I would take, too. Better scenery, less traffic.

    Black Wallnut is right about Blewett, too. Very nice ride. Especially the old road.

    I spent half the weekend in Leavenworth and the other half in the Teanaway. It got up to about 60 F both days, lots of sun for the most part but some clouds came through Saturday evening. The snow...

    I'm sure everybody has heard about the disaster near Oso, Washington; a catastrophic slope failure caused a giant mudslide, destroyed 30 houses, and dammed the Stillaguamish River. So far 8 people...
