Overnight @ Forks

Forks somewhat famous as the base for Stephenie Meyers Twilight series, will be your overnight on the "Watery" 600k. Perhaps by the time you have slogged 55k from Kalaloch you will have a taste for some blood too. Some may Flash by, do not forget to get your cards signed at the Control; The Forks Motel. Others after signing their cards may decide to push on to La Push before returning to sleep in Forks, this will cost a 5k Bonus (not really that much) if they really want to shorten Day 2.
Plan for the places you want to see in daylight, but I believe Day 2 is a little  more lumpy, something to bear in mind.
No doubt you will need Glycogenated muscles on leaving Forks no matter the plan. We Plan for Pasta and Rice. Meaty and Vegetarian Sauce, as well as the usual beverages for Dinner, a brew of  Tea, Hot Chocolate or Perhaps.... may make sleep come easier. For Breakfast, Oatmeal, Cereal, Fruit, Sausage and the B word Bacon. and certainly coffee.
Please do not hesitate to email me directly if there are any special circumstances.

Alplet Plus

Alplet Plus
Duwamish Curse
A human Test
Or a Masochist Quest
Eleven hills ensconced in marine mist and cloud
Like so many bosoms in a shroud

Today Hugh Kimball despite some northwest showers and a rear flat tire, fulfilled that quest single speed, now being the only rider to have completed the Alps, Alplet and Alplet plus and any combination of these 3 single speed. If a tree falls in the forest and no one observes it did it really fall?  I was there to observe these feats, just the Observer, the Knowing Body.
Congratulations Sir Hugh.
Hugh Baby!
