Default Headed across Washington, then to Glacier

Hi, I'm noticing dealing with lumber trucks and friggin' RV's! Biking alone (unless before 11 a.m.) is not as picturesque as I thought. God, its different riding together, vehicles back off. RV's are easily over 70 on the highways out here. Many and towing SUV's behind them.

Well, I'm crossing Route 2 across to Glacier if anyone is interested or also on the road. Message me if interested. Even if you're in car - I'll take it.

Sounds like a great adventure. Ride safe. The most important thing is to get there. Not to be first.

Thanks Mike,

Agreed. Being loaded down, riding graded and wet roads, facing truck wind blasts and mountain wind, I'm taking turns (especially downhill) slowly and safety is first, people just get right up on you - I especially love the people with RV's honking, flipping the bird - on vacation. Then the road straightens and they're 2 miles back. Peace brother.

You will never see those people again. So worry about riding safe for yourself, and enjoy the adventure. Those people are probably just frustrated, being all couped up in their metal boxes. In the end you will remember the ride and adventure, not those people.
Enjoy, and ride safe. By the way Glacier is awesome.
