Back roads in Southern Oregon

I jumped off of Interstate 5 as I was tired of getting stuck behind RV's and semi trucks pulling 3 trailers. I found this little beauty of a road heading north



Here's another shot



And after riding for an hour on these back roads, here's is what I came to. I found another way out but it involved a lot of searching. And I was down to my last gallon of gas

Hey Ed, Nice pictures! Remember, it's not raining on you, it's just raining.

Looks like we will be doing some ADV'ing in Argentina when we go... The better half wants to do some exploring, too bad you won't be there at the same time.

Keep the shiny side up:).

Cheers, James

Rain

For me anyway, the key to surviving rain is staying warm. I think even the best gear I've had ends up with a few trickles down the neck or in your crotch so I put on my electric vest if it looks like more that a brief squall.

I left out of Prescott one time in a terrible rain thinking it would clear up but didn't. The rain was pouring into my suit. After 20 miles I realized I was shivering. On went the Widder and the grip warmers on high...15 minutes later my attitude was transformed...ended up making Gallup and feeling good enough for a nice dinner (too bad I was in Gallup?!).

Mike

Finding a place to sleep

Every night I search for a place to sleep. I hardly ever go to the busy and noisy (and sometimes expensive) campgrounds where kids are screaming and your squeezed together. So I went looking for a place to sleep on the Yakima River and found this abandoned house



Here is wht it looked like on the inside. I put my tent up because there were lots of bugs crawling and flying around



On the walls there was some neo nazi grafifiti so I changed it up a bit just to piss them off



Here's a view of the "house" on the Yakima River

Kayaking and fun on the Yakima River

While hanging out at my abandoned house, I watched a guy go by kayaking on the Yakima River and it looked like so much fun. So it the morning, I called Rill Adventures 509 964 2520 and got on the River in a kayak. A must do if you are in the area. And a bargain too!





Nice shot of one of the many dams on the Columbia River

That is an epic camp pic! Enjoying your report so far. Thanks for visiting our "sunny" State of Oregon. The wines here are pretty good, but so are the whines...
