Took off this morning just as the blue hour was starting (before sunup). Went to the Longhorn Cafe in Bowie for Breakfast.

This is the two-egg plate, $5.50 for the breakfast and $1.00 for unlimited coffee.

We spent some time in the 80's riding around in the area when my mom lived in Battleground, Wa.
We were there at Yale and Swift reservoirs right before it blew. Some of the roads were blocked. Past Swift reservoir, there is/was a FR that took you over to Carson City. Scenic country.

Flying over the crater is amazing seeing it full of snow.
The eruption produced a force equal to 10–50 megatons of TNT, the equivalent of 25,000 atomic bombs released over the city of Hiroshima during World War II, and superheated gas and rock exploded out of the volcano sideways at speeds of up to 400 mph

I bet that was an interesting experience. You were seriously close. I think I took those same roads. I crossed the Columbia at Hood River then rode to Carson, north to Swift reservoir and on up to 12, then west to Johnston ridge. This is my first time through this area. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous.

It was really interesting to observe the damage in that area. I kept trying to think of what it must have been like for Johnston or Truman as it came directly at them. It’s incomprehensible.

I know what you guys are talking about. I've been working straight for the last 6 months and it seemed like I had a little time to myself today so I went out for my annual hotter than **** 150 (or so) run just to remind myself, despite air conditioning, I still live in South Texas.

They do call it adventure riding for a reason, I found a wind farm solar farm southwest of kenedy Texas that powers that air conditioning. Didn't know it existed. Doesn't look like all the photovoltaics are up yet on the solar farm but man that's a pretty **** big place also.

*Dead fish, and a couple pics are panoramic.
