May 12 Drive update: DRIVE CANCELED!
I have been diligently watching the weather forecast for Bremerton and parts West. Things look poor for a safe enjoyable drive on Sunday. There are lots of tight and blind corners and what could be slippery roads. Considering the danger and to be sure to meet club insurance coverage and after some discussion last night we agreed it would be best to reschedule. Currently I am looking at May 21 or 22 pending some feedback. Watch for an update and confirmation of the date soon.
Drive starting point is still Union 76 station, but meetup time is 9:00 am with departure expected at 9:20 am. Stage 1 is approximately 40 miles and time will depend on how many view and photo time we spend.
Stage 2 will head back North along a busy route beside the Hood Canal. Then North and West again on our way to Seabeck. We stopped there for a bite of food and relaxed with a view of the Canal. Then its decision time on which route you will want to take back.
I clocked 128 mi on the Peninsula on Monday and I think Joe probably did another 100 miles plus from home to Bremerton and back home. It is possible to shorten the route if you need to. Email me for information or questions and route maps.Drive leader and contact: Don Pappe
