That low snow level doesn't look encouraging. Been wanting to take out my new to me Orange Toy also - haven't even had a chance to do a shake down run yet!

Yes, Saturday sounds good. Where to ride without too much frozen stuff in the way? Wish I had a bike to rage the dunes.

diamond mill doesn't look awful. there's probably enough open to have fun for a few hours?

or go poke around washougal river road, and check snow levels around 3 corner rock?

I'm a little surprised. I hadn't been out on the dirt bike for months, so on Sunday I went over to the Nat'l Forest lands south of Sand Lake Road, on that little "pass" between Hwy 101 and Sand Lake. Bombed around on Forest roads (that they seem determined to abandon) for an hour or so and had a blast.

It's not very high there, and I started hitting light snow just a couple hundred feet higher than that pass. Diamond Mill is much further in-land, so it will have been colder there...

Congrats on the new bike!

there's a gut at TT who went last weekend. 1000' is kinda the cutoff, but i'm okay with farting around on forest roads and whatever trails are lower elevation.

what's the intel on sand lake? i wanna practice my dakar styleee one of these days. assuming a weekday is my best bet?

I'd be down with a trip to Sand Lake. I've never gone before due to the warnings of extreme drunken rednecks on the weekends and also the sand being really hard on bikes. I guess Cyril copes on the Dakar so I'll have to also . Is it just wheel/suspension bearings that take a beating?

Is Florence a lot better?

i know florence is bigger, but further away.
i think if you ride for a day, and wash all the schmeg and salt off you'll be fine. "soaking in it" is probably what dooms bearings and chains. remarksman surely knows more deets.
i've been to christmas valley dunes. that was fun.

My recollection is that he'd been once and it was full of drunken rednecks and he'd not been again .... Brian?

Last time I went to Sand Lake, I had the whole place pretty much to myself.

It was in the middle of summer, and not one motorcycle in sight, and... well... they hadn't yet invented quads.
