Poker Run!

Sun ,29/07/2018

So this has been a bit of a slow summer for TR8 driving, mainly because of tech issues not long after I got it out of storage (had a flat when I got it out – got that tire patched; then had an overheating problem that with some ancillary help and a couple repairs, i was actually able to fix myself) – and then we’ve gone out of town a bit recently too.

So…finally had an ‘event’ to use it in – a Poker Run with the local Tyee Triumph club. We met in Issaquah next to a pub and Top Pot Doughnuts, probably about 15 cars total? Couple photos of us waiting below, my TR8 is in the very back of the first one before the truck, a bit hard to see:

so we took off, I followed the couple in the white TR6 as I had no ‘navigator’ with me – great, country drive through back roads towards Black Diamond (with bakery stop), then a Cidery:

at this stop, I had a chance to admire some of the other cars in greater detail, including the beautiful black Spitfire in our group, and Tom Eller’s TR250:

but then, back on the road we went. We also stopped in Maple Valley in a retail parking lot as a ‘rest’ stop. As a Poker Run, each stop gave us a poker card to write down, then at the end, when we were back in Issaquah at the pub, we compared ‘hands’ and weirdly enough (with only a pair of Kings) – i won! So I got my choice of the 3 prizes, I picked the Triumph Parking sign:

What a fun event! Hopefully they will have something else similar before i have to put the Wedge back in storage likely in Mid-Oct, depending on the weather…..


ha – and yipes!

IPA – hop THIS!

Sat ,03/05/2014

Finally, someone says it – and it’s a looooong past due article! Thank you Zach G!

As someone old enough for the ‘last’ microbrew revolution (Portland OR, in the late 80s) I can remember when microbrewers actually cared about differentiation, vs. now – Now, when I ask for the microbrew menu, all I hear is IPA, IPA, IPA – to which I say, WTF? And then I order an Ayinger, Spaten or something else. Portland Brewing used to make at least two great weissbiers – not in the Widmer way – both gone. Wither Bridgeport Coho? Grant’s Weissbier with the polar bear on it? Heck, I’d take a Rainier Dark (only had it at the now closed brewery back in ’94, it was only sold in limited amounts to taverns)? Guys, it’s time to take beer back from the hoppy crap and leave that to the English! There are plenty of better places brewing beer (even on the UK islands – been to Scotland?) that offer inspiration…..?
