I will be rolling through Rugby, ND with a buddy in late June, on the way to Cape Flattery, WA, the farthest NW point in the lower 48 States.

Less than a month to go. I know that there have been a lot of weather issues this spring. Is there anything along the route that Ya'll can think of that I need to route around or just keep an eye out? Anyone willing to ride along for the whole or even a piece of the route?
Oh and the route intended is in the first post the google link.
Thanks

Carl

Hey Traxx, as previously mentioned, a buddy and myself will be tracing some of your steps starting next weekend, on the way to and from the Pacific Northwest. Depending on your schedule, it looks like your ending point isn’t too far from where I live. Perhaps we can get together for a breakfast or lunch, depending on how things shake out...  :821:

Sounds good, I will know more the closer it gets. The flooding that I have been seeing in the news has me a bit worried.
I have been massaging the route to see if I can get a few TOH Memorial in on it and still have a SS or BB.

Saddle T, what roads are you looking at and about what day?
I am having to rethink my route and time schedule. My Lovely Bride has informed me that I will have to pay the stupid tax or take lumps on the head if I am not home and ready for the July 4th family doings.
I may have to pull an "Ole Town Road" and "Ride til I can't Ride no Mo" cause "you can't tell me nothen, no you can't tell me nothen"

We are leaving tomorrow, and working our way to, in order, Theodore Roosevelt NP, Crater Lake NP, Mount Rainier NP, Olympic NP, North Cascades NP, and Glacier NP, and any scenic route we can stitch in along the way, eventually making it back along U.S. Hwy 2 from Glacier to Park Falls, WI on July 31. 5,500+ miles in two weeks.  :156:
