Plans are in the works for a trip to Washington

Since my family is in the Yakima area and I haven't been able to get home in two years, we've decided to visit and make this our first long trip on Black Beauty.  We've started putting together luggage for the saddle bags and trunk, got cup holders installed, and are doing other due diligence to get ready.  The plan right now, is to roll out of Rigby on August 31st, heading North through Challis and Salmon, then over Lolo heading West, spending the night in Orofino, Idaho.  My younger brother and his wife will be there also, doing a ride with friends, so we can meet up for the evening.  The next day they continue on their ride, and we continue on to Yakima.  Sunday or Monday, we plan on taking a ride to Packwood, Washington, for their annual flea market and possibly a meet up with John (Jluvs2dive), and anybody else in the area who wants to show up.  My brother returns home on Monday, so Tuesday and or Wednesday, we'll be riding with both my brothers with a brief stop at the cemetery where my father is located.  The rest of our time will be spent with my Mother, celebrating her 86th birthday, and barbequing.  :thumbs-up:  Friday we head home, debating whether we want to use the same route or take I-90 through Spokane and Missoula with a layover somewhere in the middle, then I-15 South to our exit.   Sunday we rest!!

We've got the bags for the trunk coming, hopefully we can prepack them so everything is ready early. I've been thinking about mounting the little video camera to capture some of the trip. The Vivitar is ok, but we're thinking about upgrading to a GoPro Hero 4. I found a good deal on a refurbished one with the accessory pack. Got the reservations made for Orofino. I've really got to get the maps out and fine tune our route, don't need any wrong turns.
