NW CEG meet and HWY 20 run June 26th
#634666 - 06/08/04 10:10 PM

From the other thread, I figured a new thread with some specific plans would be in order.

Sorry about the long title, but I would realy like to get a meet together for a run across Hwy 20 out (at least) to Winthrop and hopefully out to Grand Coulee and back again.

The plan, in broad strokes is to meet at 10AM at the WalMart in Burlington, take Hwy 20 east over and through the beautiful Cascades, down into Winthrop for lunch and then out to Grand Coulee by around 5ish. The trip back on Hwy 2 takes about 2.5 to 3 hours, IIRC. And can I mention that the EW roads are well paved and fairly interference (flashing blue lights) free? Not like any SPEEDING would be going on or anything.

It is a long all day haul, but a hell of a lot of fun. When I get home, I will find and upload my pics from May 2002 when I did it last.

By this weekend, my fuel pump will be fixed, my new brakes and rotors should be on and I am getting Falken ZE-502 rubber all around. So by the 26th, everything should be sorted out well enough to make this lots of fun.

Unfortunately, Lance and I won't be able to make it, as we are going up to Canada to introduce Alexa to Lance's parents. Also it would be a little hard for us to do such a long drive with an 8 week old who needs to eat often.

I have one suggestion though. Why not meet in Burlington, which is right off of Hwy 20, instead of having everyone drive way north past Hwy 20 to Bellingham. Just a thought. Sounds like a fun drive though.

Thanks, Christy.

I checked a map and it was Burlington, not Bellingham. I have only been up there about 3 times in the last three years, so I get those darn towns confused.

I edited my original post.

It is too bad that you and Lance (and young'un) won't be able to make it, but Alexa meeting her grandparents is more important.

Sounds like a winner. I'll try and make this one! If my brother's car is finished I'll likely continue on to Spokane from Grand Coulee though.

Your drive to Burlington won't be much longer than mine.
