On this episode: The roads less traveled

Get your motor running, whether it's gasoline or electric, and head out on the highway, or in my case State Route 542. AJ and I share some worthwhile jaunts to take when ya just wanna get outta town for a spell or just take a weekend cruise. PLUS... an award-winning photographer strikes again, Stay tuned, y'all. This is the Bellingham Podcast

Favorite Summer Time drink...that isn't Coffee

    • Chris; a Thai Basil cocktail... When you want a refreshing drink-drink
      • Crush basil leaves and pineapple chunks. Add this to a shaker with some ice. Drizzle some simple syrup, a couple shots of tequila (depending on how bad your day was), and add a squirt of lime juice. Shake it, don't break it, and strain it into your glass. #Consume
    • AJ; San Pellegrino + Pok Pok Som
      • “Pok Pok Som drinking vinegar is a refreshingly sweet and tart, fruit and vinegar-based beverage handcrafted in Portland, Oregon using quality US-made organic cane vinegar and fresh whole fruits, herbs and spices – no artificial flavoring.”

Head East... And North

Chris - Everson-Goshen Road, Head east on SR542 on the Mt. Baker highway
New Grounds Espresso - at the Smith Road roundabout
Enjoy the farmland and Wide Open Spaces. Also enjoy the lack of stoplights and traffic.
Turn left on Van Dyk road, enjoy Samson Estates Winery - Ever had a Chocolate WIne Truffle?
Take Hannegan back to Bellingham, because Meridian is nuts.

AJ - Road Trip North Bound!!
Fort Langley, BC
“It has a population of 3,400. It is the home of Fort Langley National Historic Site, a former fur trade post of the Hudson's Bay Company. Lying on the Fraser River, Fort Langley is at the northern edge of the Township of Langley.”
