Gifford Pinchot National Forest

Last weekend I met up with my good friend Corey from Portland to explore some of the gravel backroads of the Gifford Pinchot.  The drive from Tacoma was a little over 2 hours and from Portland was very close to the same.  We planned to meet at the North Fork Campground just southeast of Randle, Washington on the Cispus River.  We had reserved a camping spot months earlier and we were excited to get off the pavement and out of the city for a few days for whiskey drinking, gravel riding, car-camping and all around good times.

We picked up baby chicks from Belmont Feed and Seed in Chicago and rode home with the box on our bikes.  Keeping chickens for eggs in Chicago is legal; however, raising them for meat is not.
