So I’m back settled in Victoria after driving up from Los Angeles. It’s a long way. Just over 1300 miles. I took some photos during the drive to chronicle the adventure…
Lunch Day 1: double-double, fries, & a chocolate shake. This necessitated a nap at a rest stop about an hour later.
Next turn – 558 miles. FYI, that “turn” is a slight bearing to the left, which is followed by a similar section of driving where next turn is 350-some miles before another bearing to the left.
Shasta Lake. There isn’t a good place anywhere to capture the lake fully, so this was the best I could do. It looks cold, and I imagine it is. Good for icing the legs…
Day 2. Rolling along the river in Portland. Those are actually docks on the other side of the road. It’s a big shipping channel for logs, among other things.
Ze Border! I’m here!! That was a long way…
No pictures from the ferry ride over to Victoria. That’s old news. Actually, it’s because I had to pay attention to driving to get to the ferry terminal, so I spaced on taking more pictures…

bug juice on the DA? NooooooooooooooooO!
Does this mean no XTERRA West???
We just made that drive – twice! 19hrs in a straight shot from Vancouver to Xantusia. Took a break in Yreka on the way back (and I got a ticket the next day because of that…)>>We noticed a HUGE improvement in fuel economy when we stuffed the bikes in the car rather than on the roof, too.
