Thanks to Ron Penner who has continued to fine tune the route through 2009, and provide bikely maps of it.

A 2009 note from Cheryl about accomdation for night 1: "One note was that the previously recommended motel in Concrete, the Eagle's Nest was a dud. I had made reservations, they'd said they didn't expect the weekend to be busy so had given no confirmation number, but when we called from Sedro Woolley we got their voicemail, and same thing when we arrived at 10:30, and nobody around. We called the Totem in Marblemount but they were full, and so was the other place up there, but luckily there was another place we'd passed coming into Concrete (the Cascade?).

[Ron and Alex Pope attempted an earlier version of this route in Sept 2007 - neither finished.] [Jeff Mudrakoff finished this route in 2008]
