The Granny Panties Tour

A 50th birthday tour of the Sierra Cascades route from Sumas, WA to South Lake Tahoe, CA.
By Kelly Iniguez
#669 - posted Sunday June 28, 2015 by Neil Gunton

"I've been mulling over journal titles all winter. We've been planning this trip since last summer. It's a big celebration for Jacinto's 50th birthday. It's going to be a wowzer of a trip. I need a great name. But I couldn't think of one. This is going to be a tough trip with lots of climbing. I liked, "What is your lowest gear? Pick that one and stay there." But that seemed sort of negative, if funny. Something more positive would be good. How about The Zip-a-dee-doo-dah Tour? That's a song from a Walt Disney movie. It's upbeat and positive -"My oh my, what a wonderful day, plenty of sunshine coming my way". Hmmm, I would like sunshine for certain. But it wasn't quite right..." - read this journal
