An oldie but a goody. Out to Kahlotus, up to Washtuca, over to Starbuck down to Walla Walla across to Hermiston and up over Plymouth Road back to Richland. Lots of empty desert scenery and a few small towns. Long distances without services - be ready to carry what you need - see the cue sheet for details.
Unusually for DRR, we expect to be able to provide a couple of controls personned by volunteers in a couple of more out-of-the-way places this time, but please plan on being self-reliant anyhow.
