SLK 4th of July Trip to Idaho... and beyond!

I got back last night from another SLKNW trip, this time through Washington from Grand Coulee, to Coeur d'Alene Idaho and into Montana and then back to Richland Washington. There may have been some more wiggly bits added, but this was my route from home. My brother and I met up with them in Grand Coulee.

There are a few photos and video clips here

Fine summer weather, many new friends, and a few stories to tell. For example there were a couple of fine state troopers who pulled us over but decided we did not deserve any penalties and let us go on without even a written warning. There were about 14 grateful drivers who were even better behaved after that.

I live a ferry ride and a couple of hundred miles from where this group is based and I can tell you that the two trips I have been on with them this year have been well worth travelling the distance. And all you need to join in is an SLK.

Sorry I was not able to make this trip. It is a great group of people with SLK NW. I drive up north from Portland all the time (sometimes just for a coffee). But I love driving the SLK and getting there is half the fun for me. In a week and a half, we will be driving about 600 miles for a meet in Fort Bragg with the Nor/SoCal Groups and a drive through the Redwoods.
Glad you had a good time and hopefully I will be able to meet up with you at a future event.

If yellowSLK was there, it can't be a well-behaved group
