It was an honor to be featured in this episode of Destination Polaris where they showed many of our products, primarily our GP Rack tool mounts and tire mounts. Chuck always says “An organized machine is an efficient machine.”
We packed up and headed to Washington for our first “Overlanding Adventure.” We camped on the eastern edge of the Cascades in a town called Conconully, or “Conc.” Ian led our group in a northern venture toward the Canadian Border. We rode the northern section of the BDR (Backcountry Discovery Route) on trails 5 and 6. Visit ridebdr.com for more information on the trails.
Our first stop was Funk Mountain, where we climbed the fire tower that overlooks the Cascades. The breathtaking views were worth the climb up the “old school tree house.” We drove up to the Canadian border and arrived at camp just before sun down. Nothing beats a steak dinner under the stars!
Day 2 was another fun day riding the BDR back towards Conc.
Day 3 started with campfire poptarts, the breakfast of champions. Along our trail ride, we found a hidden gem called China Wall. In 1889, the Arlington Mining company built the walls as a foundation for a silver mine. The craftsmanship was amazing. Each rock had been touched by human hands. We were in awe by the size, skill and history of this monument.
This was our first overlanding adventure and it was a great experience.
Thanks to Destination Polaris for this amazing trip!
