My first 5 day trip on my "new to me Goldwing" using the Gold Book.

I planned to take a ride across the cascades, then across the state of Washington down the eastern edge of the state into Clarkston and then ride rattle snake pass, then home along the Columbia river. Solo, camping and no immediate itinerary. As I was packing my stuff, I remembered the Gold Book. I picked it up and figured out the usefulness of it. It was worthy of bringing along on the trip. I also noted that a GWRRA member had posted that he had camping space provided. Great. I called his number. His wife answered the phone. In one minute, she gave me their address and invited me to their place.

I showed up, had a cup of coffee, and we shared some motorcycling adventures. Instead of camping in my tent that night, I stayed in their guest cabin. I brought my own gear into the cabin, got up at 4:30 am, packed my gear and headed out. I warned them that I was an early riser and that I would be gone before they even through about breakfast. I sent them a nice thank you card for their hospitality. I snapped this picture right before I departed.

Here are some pictures I took on that trip.

The Forum removes the time and distance between like minded individuals. It is quite the communication tool. I give great thanks to the owners of the board.
