I've only got one set of chains, would they be better on the front or the rear of a 4x4??
Not looking promising. The best place for chains is hanging on the garage wall. If you decide you really have to put them on your rig. Put them on the Front Axle, especially with a Diesel.

A this point, it's a crap shoot. Supposed to warm up late Saturday and Sunday am.
But....
If not, some other time!

It has Snowed continuously since 0730 here. They are calling for a 100% chance of freezing rain tomorrow without a substantial increase in temperature. Even if Sunday dawns at 70 degrees and Sunny the roads are still going to be treacherous. Traction Devices are required in front of our house right now and they are requesting essential travel only. They just got done extracting one of the Rescue rigs out of the ditch. Sunday doesn't look promising for us at this point.

Bob Marley 10th Anniversary CANX

The Jamaican Bobsled Team is in Sochi. No help to us this Sunday. I decided to CANX the event for 02/09/13.

We will work something out in the next couple of months!

Still my odds are 1 out of ten CANX for bad weather! LOL

Thanks for all the support.

Drove my old Volvo 122s back from CB/NB back during the big snow/freeze in '90 over Walton Pass, with nearly 15" drifts at the top. I was the only car on 126 for miles. I was telling Sheri we'd probably have a long walk if it decided to get stuck.

We got home OK.

Canceled?

Do people cancel Christmas?

Or Flag Day?

Or Boxing Day?

Fort Hoskins Return Loop Out West

"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."
That was last week. (2.2.2014)

Now that there is no chance of anyone riding my return trip this weekend that I need to worry about, I will let the cat out of the bag on one fun, for me anyway, return trip from the Fort.
I have been wanting to add a thyme to the route, and as an added attraction, I want to go past as many WigWam logging burners as possible.
Note:It's not paved all the way. Don't take your shiny street bike!

Fort Hoskins>Summit>Nashville,WW north east of intersection>Siletz>Toledo, should be a WW here>Elk City,WW 1/8 mile down stream on the other side of the river, in the trees>
>Harlen, WW 1 1/2 mile east of Harlan on left (north) side of the road>Marys Peak and Hwy 34.

This was 2 hours 10 min. from the Fort, w/ out stops, and my knowledge of the roads.
At this junction (Marys Peak road and Hwy 34) the guys from the south can return thru Alsea Falls > Monroe. There is a WW in Dawson for the more adventurous....
Guys going east and north can turn left to Philomath to see Clemens Mill WW.
Cheers!
Now to get the XR650R out for that flat track I want in the back yard while we have all this snow! Zoob? You game? Or your place?

If you know of any more WigWams that can be added to this route, please chime in.

RE Bob Marley!

Will most likely do a Ft Hoskins gathering soon. It will be just a day or two notice.
Hope this snow and ice goes away quickly.
