The first Bud camping trip of the season. We camped at Tumalo State Park 5 miles out of Bend. We did three day rides: 1. Big ride around the outskirts of Bend. This used to be all in the country but now it's mostly in the city! 2. Ride from Sisters out to Camp Sherman and beyond to Wizard Falls Fish Hatchery. 3. Ride from the camp up to Redmond on the old Bend-Redmond highway and for a select few, beyond Redmond to Smith Rock State Park near Terrebone.
Bud Rice organized this trip to the San Juans. We camped at Lakedale resort which is about 5 miles away from the town of Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. There were several sag vehicles which transported riders' stuff from Anacortes to the camp, while the riders rode onto the ferry. Bud set up canopies and a cooking/kitchen table for participants to cook their own meals.
