We took a trip a couple weekends ago, two passes in the PNW, I-90 and US-2 and stayed at a friend’s house in Cle Elum.
I-90 pavement expansion joints are a bit of a boneshaker. I am going to try dropping tire pressure 10 psi in the front (100 right now) and replace shocks in the front.
The downhill grade on I-90 wasn’t bad, without any retarder system all I have is full transmission lockup and brakes.
Then we stopped outside of Leavenworth, since this was during “Oktoberfest” everything was packed. We got a lot of produce though!
Torwards the end of the day we looped around back to Wenatchee, then stayed the night at a friends place in Cle Elum.
The next day we went back down I-90 and headed to Yakima, checked out some fruit stands, then dithered around and came back through the river Gorge.
