PNWBA - South Cle Elum Ridge Run (Nov 13, 2010)
 
Pacific Northwest Backroad Adventures -
South Cle Elum Ridge
November 13th, 2010


On November 13th, 2010 I (Ceg) rode a long with Jerry on a South Cle Elum Ridge Run the Pacific Northwest Backroad Adventures group put on.
I am happy to say we had a few Forest Watch Volunteers on the run.

This was a very fun day for me getting to hang out with these guys. I want to thank Jerry for the great time, the ride, the food and talk. Also I want to say sorry about your rig breaking down Jerry. I know this was a very spendy trip for you.

Here are some pictures I took of the day:

Here we are in Cle Elum fueling up for the run.

Well that didn't last long.
The Bronco just stopped running.

A few guys worked on Jerry's rig. The fuel pump was not working for some reason.

All but two of the other rigs moved on with Steve as the new trail boss.

This rig stayed to follow us out.
