Spokane

This must be where pies go when they die.
-Agent Dale Cooper

Spokane (spoh-CAN), Washington, near the eastern-most edge of Washington, is probably more a part of Idaho than its home state. Not only is it located smack-dab in the heart of Sasquatch country, but it is near the fictional setting of David Lynch's fantastically creepy Twin Peaks.

Tomorrow, I will hop on a plane and head for the heart of the deep Doug Fir forest.

No, I am not going there to investigate a body... dead... wrapped in plastic... No, my mission is far more mundane. I am going for a biker convention.

Stop laughing.

This, of course, is now part of my job, and will be followed next week with my Team Oregon motorcycle safety class.

This week, however, it's the bikers. Well, bikers and lawyers to be precise, which for most folks might be a nightmare. For me, though, having fought off menacing cowboys for the last two weeks, this should be a breeze.

While I have no loyal assistant named Diane, to whom I may send endless dictation, I have decided to bring my camera to record the event for posterity. We'll see what happens.

With luck, I may see Sasquatch.

  1. You are going to mingle with bikers in the hopes that when one of the lays down his or her bike and suffers massive body trauma and dain bramage (or better yet death) you might get the call?

    Nice. You've gone beyond ambulance chasing right to exploitation of high risk potential plaintiffs.

    Although I guess networking with funeral directors for probate work is not much better. At least your crowd parties more.

  2. It's the party that I fear...

  3. I've been to a few, Brian. You'll be fine. If you're lucky, they'll have a free beer wagon and you may come with a free tattoo.

    I would fear the biker ladies

  5. I suspect that the biker chicks are there for the bikers. As i am not a biker, I will be, in essence, invisible.

  6. Do you need to borrow one of my Langletz jackets?

  7. If the G&T Lounge had a logo, that would be my vote for what you'd get tattoo'd....

    I'd vote for a tattoo of Daisy the Stripper on his upper arm

  9. Well, since Ryan stole my ambulance chaser idea, I will simply say to have fun and watch your cornhole. Spokane is the home of former mayor Jim West...
