Last Chance Abbott Rd. Sat Oct 15th

I have yet to ride Abbott Rd FS4610
This very unimproved road makes up the borders between two Wilderness areas,
the existing Salmon-Huckleberry and the new-last-year Roaring River Wilderness.

Road Rash tells me (and backed it up with an RR and some pics),
that due to the limited passage through the slide-out somewhere near half-way on this road,
that it should be ridden West-to-East.
nw scout tried to ride it in July, still snow
88Toyota wants it cleared
Road Rash combined it with Fish Creek last October
strombolli decided to abort his ride of it in Oct 2007
pdedse did a nice RR on this road trip in Sept 09


That puts it's start just South of Estacada.
Breakfast meet-up spot: Harmony Baking Co, in Estacada. 10am, riders out at 11am.
We can take the long way to Abbott Rd, if someone knows any "interesting" stuff.

Camping the night before at roads end: Highrocks Springs Campground. 6-7pm Friday night, primitive, no bathroom, no fees.
32 miles from Estacada, only 1 mile not paved. Meet us there in AM if you want, out of camp by 8:30am.

Mustangshelly must work a 12 hour shift next Saturday,
and I probly ought to preride all unimproved routes before I take her riding on them,
so I'm going with that excuse to ride this rooad without her next Saturday.
It's several hours long, and I'll gladly lead us to something else great to ride on the other end,
if you all still have the ride-buzz at the end of Abbott Rd.

The long-term forecast looks good for next Saturday, and dirt roads are PERFECT right now.
No dust, high traction, and no mud.......YET.
So I figure this might be a last chance to ride this road this year.

I get to work this Saturday.

Was it Harvest bakery we met at years ago Roadrash?

My arm isn't ready anyway.

I am hoping the surgeon doesn't use the "S" word after my appointment Friday

Pessimists, feh.
Ain't gonna rain on my parade.

I'll have my new tire on by then, and ready to rock.
Slow Joe with training wheels, and me on a new back knobby.
We'll be fine. What could go wrong?

Harmony Baking Co., it is then

What's early?
I was wondering myself, as Estacada is 1-1/2 hours from my home, and further for Slow Joe.

Is 9 too early? How about 10am?

Or I also thought I could camp the night before. Hmmm.
