I thought you said she doesn't like fish?

Have to do Yoko's one of these days when I'm in your neck of the woods.

Cooked fish, that's fishy - no salmon or stronger.

The more I hang around here the confuseder I get. Unless I get out soon I'm afraid that's going to make complete sense.

This article I found says they were selling gas in January 2013. Does anyone know if they still are?

Hampton Station is one of two locations selling fuel in the 104-mile stretch between Bend and Riley except on Sunday and Monday, when both Hampton Station and the Brothers Stage Stop and Cafe close, at least during the winter.

Looks good out there now.

Their pump was broken in September 2013. It has been fixed but they are currently out of fuel. They are really good about having some if we call ahead.
Last time they had gas cans waiting for us. Just make sure you buy lunch there! That was the agreement we made last time to make it worth their trip to Riely to fill the cans.
Hampton Station (541) 420-0828

If it's cheap (ish), it's good.
My good times of the top shelf box-o-Bookers are on hold for a bit.

Ever had a bottle of whiskey break in your panniers?
Ask my lumpy/wavey-paged Oregon Benchmark about that someday.
Plastic works just fine

Mac inna plastic jug is cheap and travels just fine. And you can use empty bottles to carry extra gas or stove gas.
Even beer cans are not safe to carry in panniers,,they rub together and soon make tiny holes!
Broken bottle of wine has to be the worst tho,,,might as well head straight to the creek with everything, pannier and all,, and get to rinsing the wine out. What a surprise when you open yer pannier and the red smell hits yer nostrils,,,you know INSTANTLY what has happened!
plastic is good!

That does look good. I have time on my hands right now and might have to go to Chimney Rock campground and do a pre-camp inspection for all you FF`s.
Weather forecast is cloudy but oh well !

Even though it is 7 1/2 weeks to this adventure, I am getting excited for it.

My latest shop project is a Moto-jack bike hauler I am modifying to fit on the front or back of my motor home as well as the rear of my Suzuki Grand Vitara.

I am looking to track down a Kendon motorcycle standup lift so if any of you hear of a used on for sale, let me know.

I just drove that section and its 15 miles of wide open gravel. A little bit of wash board and a few potholes but generally good enough to drive your prius down. The pavement is probably slower going than the gravel.
