Hood Canal Wa./ first tour *many pics*
This was my first tour, 3 days and 150 miles all said and done. Started and finished in Bremerton, Wa. No flats, break-downs, or any problems whatsoever actually. The weather was decent, the only rain fell while we were snug in the tent. I'm an experienced backpacker/mountaineer but I learned it takes more to keep warm while traveling at higher speeds
I rode my '90 trek 420 I built up for light touring and commuting, she was on a Norco somethingorother with slicks. About 50 miles each day with side trips, I felt I could hold that pace indefinitely. Cant wait for warmer weather and longer trips!
first stop was lunch
Tawanah st. park
Posing in front of the Hood Canal
Potlatch St. park, our first camp
Cheap beer.... Trying to keep this a cheap trip.
