The urge to go camping beats out the crappy weather, and we proceed to freeze our asses off.
After our last camping trip in September, we've waited impatiently for the weather to get warm/dry enough for us to go camping again. In mid April, we saw a high over 50* F and a low chance of rain, so we loaded up and headed to Wallace Falls State Park.
It was a short ride up, and we found the only open site left and quickly set up camp before going on a hike.
2 weeks later we were back on the bikes heading North to Deception Pass State Park.
After the shortest ferry ride ever, we made it to Whidbey Island and made our way up the scenic roads to the campsite. It was a cold ride, but luckily it went pretty fast and we managed to set up camp right before the rains began. We hiked out to the bridge while it rained on and off, and when we returned to camp we met some like minded neighbors next to our site and spent the evening talking bikes and travel over too many beers.
We got off the ferry in Bremerton and it was a quick ride down some very scenic roads to the campground, where we joined an estimated 200+ other riders who had taken over the entire campsite.
We don't have a video of the crash but we did make one of the rescue effort.
Luckily he was fine, and his bike started right up. He finished the day's ride like a champion.
We made it to the Geoduck (a restaurant from one of our earlier trips) and enjoyed some lunch with the group before heading back to camp. That night we drank plenty of beers while watching the raffle giveaways for the last night of the campout.

It was a great time and we can't wait to attend more events like it.
A few weeks later we headed to Lake Wenatchee State Park with Volodymyr and Aleksandra, a Ukranian/Russian couple that we met at the campout. After a quick breakfast at The Wick, we headed towards Leavenworth.
What the camera didn't capture was all the mosquitoes swarming around us. After we got home and unpacked I found my shoulder to be really itchy.
