We met up at the "Iron Skillet" in Sedro Wolley (Randy's choice) which was excellent. Ample tasty breakfast grub at a decent price. From there we headed down Hwy 9. I thought these guys were confused but they knew the way to one of my favorite roads along the Skagit River. But I usually come into to it a little to the east. It's the same road in my vid which BB commented the sun between the trees was like a strobe light. Jeff took the lead on his BMW and I followed Randy. I'd let Jeff lead any day. But it really sucks to be the last guy passing all the time. We stopped at Diablo dam for pics and to stretch our legs. Then it was off to the overlook which I was glad these guys didn't mind stopping at. I hadn't taken in the views since I was a kid with my dad. Of we went to Winthrop (not "Winthrope" Randy) for some beers and lunch. IPA's for the Canadistans and a Porter for me. Randy and I had the fish and chips and Jeff had a burger. Not cheep, but not much is in Winthrop. We gassed up and on the return trip I decided to pass Jeff. Well this was fine for a few miles and then Jeff blew passed me. Randy and I didn't see him for at least 15 minutes. Thankfully he slowed down and became leader again. With a parting handshake I said goodbye to my Canadian friends and headed back down 9 to home. Hope to do it again someday.
