Hey Chip, how about editing the first post. Black text on dark grey background is almost invisible to the ocularly challenged.

Oh yeah, IN.

need an excuse for a sunday ride!


here is one!


sunday february 09,2014 @ eleven forty-five am. Meet and celebrate bob marley's birthday @ ft hoskins park, hoskins or.



this is the tenth year! It has been a lot of fun.



this is a no host event. Riders will bring their own food, plates, utensils, coffee cup and music to participate. On site: A picnic table, charcoal and grill to prepare your celebratory dinner. If you want to share food, bring something everyone will enjoy! Each rider should bring a piece of firewood!



directions: Head west from corvallis or on highway 20. Go through philomath and stay on hwy 20 a few miles. Turn off at wren or onto or hwy 223.

hwy 223 goes n towards kings valley and eventually dallas or.

follow hwy 223 approx 6 miles n. Turn left to hoskins. There is a rural fire station opposite the turn. Ft hoskins park sign is about 1/4 mile just after the lh turn off hwy 223. Proceed west and follow signs to park.

the approximate gps coordinates are: latitude: 44.675397, longitude: -123.4542703)

use first gear at park entrance. It is paved, but steep with a sharp rh turn almost immediately. Once past that, you will be rewarded at the top of the hill.

this is a newly designated benton county park. Ft hoskins was sited there from 1856 to 1866.

hope to see you there!



disclaimer: This is a fun event. Celebrating bob's birthday in no way condones drug use, illegal items or supports his way of life. We picked bob because it was the only other significant event listed on the search engine! Ja mon!

Rumor has it that Peter's bringing a big batch of his world-famous special cole slaw this year.

I know it's about the "skin" we choose, but I can't see that black text either.

If there were a color that was darker than black,,
then you could paint the bathroom that color,,and paint all the trim and fixtures black,,to brighten things up!

I think the problem is the 'content of his character, not the color of his skin'.

Pre-Ride Ride 2.2.2014

Took a ride out to the Fort to get a feel for a return trip. Almost got me a deer. One of the fastest launching deer I have seen. Another time when two deer come onto the road in front of me and I go in between them.
Had a nice return trip better suited for longer days and warmer weather, but a nice ride anyway. Might be the best ride this year yet.

Everyone bring a piece of firewood and I'll bring the fire place.

Looks like it'd be a 2.5 fillup trip.

Doesn't look good for Chip Seal's lucky streak with the weather. Forecast for the area has a total accumulation of 5 to 13 inches of snow ON TOP OF the 8 inches already there. Then there's the predicted ICE of 1/4" today, 1/4" tonight, 1/4" on Saturday.

I've only got one set of chains, would they be better on the front or the rear of a 4x4??

Only need the front set, one on each end of the bike.
