Trip ReportTADMO BL TRIPS #4 Bridwell Memorial & #5 NorCal/Oregon Coast
Been putting the TADMO BL to good use recently with a trip to the Ditch
for the Bridwell Memorial and a week long trip on the NorCal/Oregon coast to celebrate Mo's retirement after 25yrs. with Shasta County Family Support Services.
Trip 4: Bridwell Memorial
Made the weekend trip to the Valley, my last visit in 81, after stopping Fri. night in Jamestown to pick up Mouse at his bro Tim's place. Thanks for the hospitality and meal Brian and Tim.
Was great to road trip with Mouse again and attend the amazing Memorial on Saturday, mad props to all that made it happen. I was honored to meet many of you for the first time; Werner, Tamara, Rev. Jeff, Harrison, Anders, Guyman, Jim, BLUBLOCR and others.
Also seeing some of you again that I had met previously; My guide Mouse, Hooblie and Peter Mayfield.
A major highlight for me was reuniting with my climbing mentor and 1st partner "Rubidoux" Jim Wilson whom I hadn't seen since 74. It was great seeing you and reconnecting, best wishes Jim and family.

I had a great time in the Valley honoring Captain Bridwell,
Thank you all!
TRIP #5; Mo's NorCal/Oregon Coast retirement trip.
We both love the NorCal and Oregon coast so we took our time seeing the sights, beachcombing, eating seafood and living out of the van for a week.
Headed west on Hwy. 299 to Arcata then headed north on 101 and spent the first and last nights at our Orick area secret bivy spot.
Slowly traveled up the coast all the way to Astoria over the next few days then reversed our route down the coast hitting areas we hadn't seen on the way up.
Found a good stealth bivy site north of Gold Beach and also stayed in a couple Ore. State Parks CG's which are nice because they had hot showers, a necessity
after a few days of stealth camping. ;)
Not gunna bore ya with details,
enjoy the visuals.
All for now,
life is good!
Together we will travel.
