Saturday was the the Seattle Progressive International Motorcycle show.  Fun looking at all the cool bikes and nice to have the feeling that I made the right decision on getting mine.

Couldn't turn it down

Hike up Mt. Pilchuck

Ashley and I decided to take the trek up Mt. Pilchuck the other day.  What a hike, breath taking views and great place to have lunch.  The lookout is pretty cool but often filled with too many people to enjoy but there are plenty of other places to enjoy lunch.  We had an overcast day but the views were still amazing.  Not the easiest hike we have been on but easily doable in a few hrs.  The Suunto Ambit was acting a bit wacky on the way down but here it the map of the hike.

Make sure to click through the panos, they look crappy on this page but OK on Flickr.

Lunch on the River Walk San Antonio

The Luxury SA

Went to check out the new Weissman establishment on Wednesday, it was spot on and did not disappoint. Good Beer selection and adventurous menu and great location on the river in the shadows of SAMA. They had Tank 7 on tap, what else do you need.

Finished up on the river and checked out Big hops Growler Station on Broadway. Another win for the day. A huge selection of TX craft beer on tap and a few singles to-go. I had the Branchline Rye IPA, impressive new brewery in town.
