WOW!!


What a ride. Had a beautiful time at the LeMay museum watching the Seattle Cossacks. They are an amazing group of riders/acrobats!!
Stayed at the Murano hotel and had the final banquet there. It was a lovely feast and time of reminiscing as we watched a slide show of Michael Lichter’s wonderful photography. Lots of oooing and aaaing.
Paul did a beAutiful job as M/C, announcing the winner and other highlights.
After all was said and done no one got up to leave…but got up to say heartfelt so-longs. We all lingered for quite some time exchanging addresses, giving hugs, extending invitations to please come see us and let’s get together soon.

Our lives have been enriched by yet another Cannonball. The culture of the event, man and machine. The personalities of the folks you ride with, crews and the people that come and go. It’s glorious. How lucky we are to have pulled this off. Thank you all so very much.

LEWISTON TO YAKIMA.


It’s a beautiful day!! Lewiston is a lovely place. Had a late start today – 8:30, nice to take it easy and not be so rushed.

We made it 33??? miles and she said …that’s enough….bummer. Blew another exhaust valve.
We consoled ourselves with…it didn’t burn up and we are not hurt.

We got on the sweep vehicle (bus of shame). Signed the ceiling. Got ahold of our crew to let them know. Phil and Karen picked us up. GW stayed in the back and started tearing the cylinder apart.
We started calling ahead to Yakima to see about machine shops and parts.
Got in and talked to Frank from Jim Pettys team. He helped us locate a machine shop by networking at the HD dealer. GW and Brent went there and came back with a thumbs up.
The boys are working feverishly to get her done.
The map is ready for loading and we’re hoping for the best.
