I'm gonna go out to Jones Creek OHV Saturday, arriving a little after dawn, probably 6am and riding till about 8:30am, if anyone's up for it. I may do the same thing on Sunday, too. Kind of a short trip, but pretty much my summer routine, and keeps the wife happy.

Jones Creek would be fun unfortunately it'd be too early for me. I've never been on Barlow Rd by Hood, anyone like to do that?

PDX Off-Pavement Ride

Wife and kids went out of town, so I hornswaggled a friend into riding out to Abbott Rd (NF-4610) with me yesterday. After getting just DUMPED on between Portland and Estacada, we stopped for a minute to pour the rain water out of our coats, and I swear, the moment we stopped, the rain stopped. We gave each other the "You still in?" "I am if you are." "Okay, I am if you are.", and hit the road again.

It turned out to be a perfect day for a ride. The rain had quelled the dust, and the forest was glistening.

Not really knowing what to expect, we rode all the way up to "The Slip", and walked (and slid) down into it, to check it out, before deciding to turn around. I didn't get any pictures, I think because, I was a little awestruck by the site of it, and by the thought of people riding through that, especially when it's wet and slimy, which it was. I might've (stupidly, at my skill level) given it a shot (and would likely still be there right now) on my little DR350, but he, on his KLR650 with the 50/50 tires and the 100+ lbs. of boxes and racks, wisely lobbied against it.

With thinly veiled relief, I capitulated, and we happily tore back down the road from whence we came. We took a right onto NF-4613, to Tumala Mtn Rd and followed the twisty paver back to the Fearless Brewing Company pub in Estacada before it shut down for the night.





Nice little ride.

In regards to the last photo above, now that i am at my computer & not on my little phone, i can see the trash some fuckers have left there...what dickheads!! When are some of these shooters going to pick up there shit & haul it out, they made the mess, they should clean it the fuck up. When i target shoot, i always have a bucket with me to take home my trash, & usually other trash left behind. Some fuckers just dont give a shit about where we live.

Yep. Last Saturday, though. Don't want anyone thinking I stood them up.

Noticed your morning riding schedule, too bad it wasn't Jones Creek towards the coast, might have been interested

Stumbled onto this today!

[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

Headed home over Pittsburg rd. Took a little detour trying to find the old grade I use to drive 20 yrs ago. Headed up a muddy 2 track just to see where it went and found this instead. Funny I use to drive all over around this area and never stumble on this before.
