Goodbye, Washington

Well WA, it's been fun. I'm headed back down to AZ for sunnier skies and drier roads before I deploy.

Highlights of my rides here:
*Run2Seattle (my trip from PHX to SEA) in July.
*Seattle to Leavenworth. Made that a couple times. Nice to get out of the city.
*Seattle->Devil's Pass, back through Alrington. Neat ride if I had dressed for the cold.
*Attempted Olympic Loop. Day after Thanksgiving, was going to make a weekend of it. Rain completely defeated all my gear. I got as far as Port Angeles, and turned back to Bainbridge to come home. That was one miserable day.
*Olympia Toy Run 2012. That was a pretty amazing experience. More than 16,000 bikes, all with toys for children that might not otherwise get gifts. Decent weather too...for PNW anyway.

I rode pretty much every day, through rain many many times. I certainly learned a lot while here. Thanks for the memories!

Look out, AZ. This desert rat is coming home!

If memory serves, "Enjoy the Seattle Rain Festival - September through May!"

But I loved it just the same, beautiful country!
