1st S24O o' 10


Details at Pat's blog.

Main take-aways:
  • Although the destination was a bit heavy (historically speaking), it was a pleasant place. We agreed that we'd likely not go back, but it was fun to check out a new destination.
  • Geologically speaking, there are pockets of little surprises all over the Palouse. And plenty of dirt roads to go around. There's a lot of exploration to be done out there.
  • Ten FIDY is the king of S24O beers. Wow. The GUBNA Imperial IPA is serious. Too serious for my liking after a ride. Silly names aside, these are good beers to have a friend pack.
  • Speaking of which, it's good to have a S24O riding partner who hauls a lot of shit. My friend Pat brought: 1/2 my water, all of my beer, all of my coffee, and 1/2 my dinner. It's like having a Sherpa that can cook!

Great pictures both here and on Pat's blog, but I have to say that last pic here is particularly well framed.

The Palouse is a lot of sky, and that's what it feels like to ride there.

+1 on the last photo. It is fantastic.

Fantastic. Wide open spaces like those are few and far between around here, even the farmy areas are not like that. Lots of hills and wooded areas around here, they are cool in their own right but also obstruct views. Very cool.

The familiar Yale sign makes me wonder where you ended up for the night. BTW I am headed to Badger lake on Wednesday night- leaving at 10 p.m.
