I wouldn't have met the friends I have met - we wouldn't have had the adventures we have had.
It goes against the grain to trust a bunch of online 'friends'.
Trust them enough to drive several hours to meet for lunch.
Trust that you 'know' them well enough.
That leap of faith paid off in so many ways this past July in Seattle.
How happy I am that we all took that leap of faith.
Let me introduce you to bikerfamily. This brave woman drove for hours to meet 5 crazy strangers for lunch. We had arranged to meet at the Salish Lodge at Snoqualmie Falls,
Baking Nana, Bibi, Mauigirl, Occasional Cooker and Magnolia Blossom
With Mauigirl at the helm, Magnolia Blossom, Bibi, Occasional Cooker and I piled into the rental car and headed out to meet bikerfamily. We were carrying our orange AllRecipes
bags hoping we would be easy to spot. Mind you, we did approach several single women hoping to locate bikerfamily, probably scared the tar out of a few too, until we found her. Hugs ensued and all was well. We were off on another adventure!
Snoqualmie Falls, WA
Lunch was fabulous and the company was even better. We had a lovely bottle of wine, Salmon Chowder, Caesar Salad, Fish and Chips, Crab and Shrimp, Eggplant Panini,
and finished it off Lavender Creme Brulee and Flourless Chocolate Cake.

Bikerfamily brought us 4 bags of Washington
Cherries! What a treat those were.
Time flew by and soon it was time to say goodbye. I think I speak for the whole group when I say this was a fabulous adventure.
Thank you for taking that leap of faith,
these are memories that will last a lifetime.
