TDC Mini ADV July 2023 (with video)

LMR, E-rock, and MotoBum loaded-up and hit the Cascades for a two-night ADV, July 7-9, 2023. 

Here is the documentation / experimental video:

GhostfaceKLR was seen by MotoBum for approximately five minutes. The occasion was celebrated with a bubbly water and the return of a beloved handkerchief.

Chumstick Mountain was achieved.

The TDC subset was in good form at the summit

When we were high, we rode slowly. When we were low, we hauled.

Last Minute Ryan got famous on the Internet again.

The Bus at Tahuya

Swamp Monster and MotoBum did it yet again and it was another flawless day at Tahuya. The conditions were perfect with tacky ground, no rain, and spring temperatures to die for.

The only "incidents" (not really worth mentioning) were 1) Swamp Monster initially forgot to pull the muffler plug out upon start up of his Gas Gas EC250 and 2) MotoBum forgot to turn the gas on while out on the trail on the Yamaha WR250F... not once, but twice.

A dude named Jared on a Yamaha YZ250 tagged along with the small crew coming out of the Elfendahl Pass Staging Area. He didn't want to get lost out in the wilds so asked to tag along. It's safe to say that within 30 minutes, he was both worn out and already worried about running out of gas. He peeled off to ride down Sand Hill Road, back to the gravel pit, and back to the main 'lot. That was the last that was seen of Jared.

The Bus. It was both an ideal and a destination. It was a fun target. It was an easy target. Especially considering that Swamp Monster had the location tagged in his GPS unit. MotoBum kept asking Swamp Monster "are we getting closer?" The answer was always "yes." But then when it finally was close, MotoBum didn't take the turn off and kept shredding Overland Trail.

In the end, The Bus was found again and ridden through several times, resulting in various Instagram posts and a GoPro video.

Twice In One Month!

Swamp Monster and MotoBum actually hit the Tahuya trails twice in one month! On December 31, 2018, they put the year to bed with a good trail shred.

It's worth noting that Swamp Monster actually did shoot quite a bit of GoPro video... and none of it ended up being usable. #nexttime

Swamp Monster, MotoBum, and Tahuya (with vid)

Swamp Monster and MotoBum hit Tahuya on December, 2 2018. How long had it been? Who knows. It'd been way too long. But all the equipment fired up and worked flawlessly. The gear was still comfortable. And one of the best Tahuya dirt bike rides commenced. Just look at the golden pictures below as evidence. As per tradition, it ended with Mexican and Margaritas.

TDC made a mid-October partial Washington Backcountry Discovery Route (WABDR) run, just for fun. With snow at higher elevations, this trek was one to remember for a lifetime! As always, more fun was had camping once the beers and tequilas started flowing freely.
