Day 81 on the #pct Short mileage day on the trail; hiked 12.7 miles to White Pass to resupply, do laundry, take a shower and spend the night in Packwood with family. The hike today offered excellent views of Mount Rainier. #mountrainier
Didn't make TR Contingency at the Packwood ProSolo Tour but made 2nd of 7 missing 1st by .458 and squeaking over 3rd by only .072sec in SSC. Altogether captured 7th of 162 on overall index. Thanks again to Jason for letting me steal his car for the weekend! I honestly couldn't have come this far without my cheerleaders, mentors, friends and family from autocross backing me up! #trcontingency#prosolo
This weekend was amazing. Easily the toughest battle I've had racing. 7 people easily in the hunt for the lead going into day two, the top five within a tenth. Got knocked out of the challenge in round 2, both rounds we're against other STX cars. The West coast STX guys are a ton of fun too, it was fun making new friends. And, look at how happy the car was to make it home in one piece!! Oh, and there was a creepy pig duck @sccaofficial #autocross#funwithcars
ThatPurpBRZ’s first national Prosolo event is in the books! She did what I wanted her to in the corners. We need to work on our launching but we will get better! I didn’t go to compete and come home with a trophy, I went to experience it, learn new things, and drive home happy. I did all those things. I will be back next year! ————————————————————— #autox#solomatters
Day 83 July 17 Zero in Packwood Packwood Washington turns out to be the perfect place to take a zero day, because there is essentially nothing to do other than eat and sleep. So that is what I did, and gladly! A prominent headline on the front page of the local weekly paper indicated that the huckleberries weren’t quite ripe yet. That gives you a good sense of the place. I said goodbye to Footjuice who hiked out in the morning, and went to the local grocery store to stock up on everything I was craving. Local ...

Great end to the weekend, waiting for the tow truck, then headed home (2.5hr drive). Its about 90F in the shade. Not terribly worried, the car will be down for a few weeks but will have it up and running for sept 1st track day and the next two events i will be co-driving another car.
Codriving Andy’s Miata for #sccaprosolo has been an awesome experience. I’ve been able to learn how much more grip #hoosiers have than my RE-71Rs and I got to actually see the difference between Xida shocks and my cheap Tien Flex suspension from the early 2000’s. I can’t think of one instance where a bump unsettled the car... It was a pleasure driving with @andysracingadventure and I appreciate the opportunity! I have learned a ton and met lots of cool people this weekend. 🙂
Decided to do as #magellan do and cumnavigated #mtrainier today with Trevor and Henry. @triumphseattle serviced my bike and cruise control doesn’t work anymore and service light is still on but besides that the @officialtriumph is awesome! Only used a little over 1/2 a tank in 3.5 hours riding time. My map tracks got split up for some reason... fun ride!
I’ve been singing the song “what a difference a day makes” to myself this whole trail, and it really is true. I thought of those words the first night on trail, how different my life just became from the working, paying bills, running errands. I hummed to myself “24 little hours” while climbing Whitney, changing in one day into feeling like a strong, capable, tenacious woman who climbed the tallest peak in the contiguous states from a scared little girl (even though i did cry on the way up, #frequentcier). These last two weeks of Washington have been awfully rainy ...
Day one of national pro solo at packwood is in the books and I'm sitting in second!!!! Dance parties in the pits carried to grid are definitely working in my favor.

It’s summer... time to get ready for winter! The cabin boasts a big and beautiful deck... perfect for summer grilling. Today, the deck got a deep clean and a protective coat to keep the wood safe through the winter-y weather we get. We know you snow bunnies have big plans for us in a few months. We’re ready! ❄️ • • • • • • #knottycedarsretreat#cabin
Hiked up to South Point Lookout today and it's now my favorite Summit. Greeted with 360 views of Mt. Rainier, Mt. St. Helen's, Mt. Hood, Mt. Adam's, the Tatoosh Range and Goat Rocks along with the Cowlitz River, there isnt much more one could ask for. #redtherallydog did awesome setting the pace for about a 3 hour 8 mile round trip summiting at 5700'. #sleepwell
Bull Elk splashing in a stream yesterday afternoon near Mount Rainier National Park. His velvet antlers were glowing in the sun. www.dondetrick.smugmug.com @rmef_official @kiro7seattle @mountrainiernps @komo4 @king5seattle @q13fox
Getting some sun on the tires before my run. We have a super stiff competition, a little nervous yet excited. Hope to be anywhere but last. The car feels solid, just need to not jump the light or sneeze on launch. During practice starts i was able to get a 0.501 RT which is .001 from perfect #prosolo#prosolonationals
Such a joy to take my oldest two back country for a couple days to camp by the lake and do some fishing. We got dumped on the entire time but being off the grid with nothing to do but enjoy each other and nature was good for the soul. So thankful they are always up to adventure with dad. #daddydaughtertime#backcountry
For the last 2 weekends I have been out at the #track covering #scca - One of the drivers let me borrow his 100-400mm lens to cover the Yes this lens is just as big and heavy as it looks. - I'm halfway done editing the photos from last weekends event, and I'm about to start shooting today. Pictures should be up in the middle of the week. Stay tuned! -
Trying something new this weekend: my first Pro Solo event! Took the much needed brief Evo School to practice the tree light reaction times and holeshots. I also got to learn about the rules and requirements on stickers and where they have to be placed... I always thought it was for looks...🤷🏼♂️ Anyways, the car is properly sticker’d and ready for tomorrow. Looking forward to my first set of runs tomorrow! I’ll be co-driving @andysracingadventure ‘s CSP Miata. #prosolo#scca
