PNW Dual Sport Summer Closer
Report & photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets / Eastern Washington Tourism

On Friday October 5th, 2018, we headed to Leavenworth to set up the Selah Sweets trailer for the PNW Dual Sport Summer Closer at the Lake Wenatchee Recreation Club.

Saturday and Sunday we served pancakes in the morning, shaved ice and other snacks in the afternoons.

We met a lot of cool people and had a lot of fun camping there with them.

Sunday afternoon we headed to Plain to have lunch with some friends. After lunch we traveled back home to Selah.


About the event from PNW Dual Sport

The 2nd annual Summer Closer!
We have reserved the Lake Wenatchee Recreation Club, a privately owned campsite at Lake Wenatchee, settled in a very beautiful part of the North Cascades in Washington.
As always: Tent/bike camping, group rides, prize giveaways, entry in our scavenger hunt and other games, and much more are all included in your GA ticket. If you are riding your bike to the event, these will be allowed in the camping area and may be parked with your tent/hammock/etc. Anyone with a GA ticket may also bring a truck or car, with or without a small trailer, that you are not camping in/on.

Events:
– Scavenger Hunt: On Saturday morning, each participant will receive a map, marked with many locations throuhout the Lake Wenatchee area. Each location will be worth a different number of points. You will have a full day to ride and collect the secret code at each location and add it to your map. At the end of the day, you will receive as many raffle tickets as you have points. These raffle tickets will be used to enter to win prizes of all kinds, and you can choose what prizes to invest your tickets in!
– Group Rides: We will have many different group rides to choose from on Friday and Saturday, each one led by a different person or group. Each ride will vary by schedule, speed, difficulty, route, etc.
– Games: In camp, we will have an assortment of moto games throughout the weekend.
– Prize Giveaway: Saturday night we will have a prize giveaway, separate from the Scavenger Hunt. Each attendee will receive a raffle ticket for this drawing.
– Demo Rides: Come out and try out some new bikes!

Leavenworth Backroads Adventure
Report & photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures

On Wednesday August 15th, 2012 Foxracer and I headed out from the Naneum Ridge State Forest Backroads Run parting from Toy Man near Wenatchee to continue our Eastern Washington adventure around the Leavenworth area.

We stopped in the town Leavenworth around 5:30 PM. We parked at the Northeast side of town and walked through the Bavarian village to the München Haus for dinner. It was nice to sit in the biergarten under the misters on this hot day.

After dinner we wen back to our rigs to get our growlers and then got them topped of at the Icicle Brewery.

Next we head out of town on Icicle Road to go find a campsite. We found a very cool campsite near the end of the road. Map

On Thursday August 16th, 2012 Foxracer and I headed back through Leavenworth to go explore some backroads Northeast of town.

We headed up Darby Canyon Road (FS7400) from Peshastin and drove up to Chumstick Mountain. The views was great. After a short break and cell calls to our families, we headed back down the mountain to US-2 by the way of FS7415 & FS7412. This route dropped us near Cashmere.

Once on US-12 we drove back toward Leavenworth. I stopped in Leavenworth for lunch and Foxracer continued over the pass to the west side.

Jeffs_62 met me in Leavenworth to visit awhile before I had to leave for a DNR Recreation Committee meeting in Wenatchee.

A little after 5 PM I headed for the meeting in Wenatchee. I got to the meeting place to find out the meeting had been canceled due to the Taylor Bridge Fire in the Ellensburg Area. Some of the people on the committee live in the fire zone. The DNR did call me the day before while I was at the Naneum Ridge State Forest and left me a voice mail. My phone did not show I had a message until I turn it off and then back on again.

Since there was no meeting I headed back toward my home in Selah by the way of Quincy.

On the way I stopped to in Kittitas for some diesel at the Shell Station I filled up at the day before. It was Taco Thursday at Curly’s II so I headed into Kittitas for dinner. Ron the Parts Guy came and joined me for a couple of beers.

This was a great trip! Thanks for leading the way Foxracer. Thank you Jeff and Ron for coming to visit as I was near your areas.

Here are some photos of our Leavenworth Backroads Adventure:
