GEEKOUT FYI - If anybody is planning on riding Millican Plateau, I found the current OHV map and posted in at the last entry on the thread below. The thread also tells you how you can view the trail maps on your Smart Phone, including having GeoReferencing on your phone - I.e. It will show you where you are on these OHV maps.

out

Unfortunately too many other things are pressing right now. Have fun everyone. Don't be afraid of the weather. Ten minutes ago it was snowing and now its sunny. Hasn't rained on this side enough to be real muddy. You may find some snow up high though.

I have been debating what I should do, so I looked into the crystal ball for advice.

Probably not happening soon.
Forecast shows 20-34" of snow through Saturday for Mt Bachelor.
It's been snow then sun then snow then sun then snow then sun here in Bend this morning. Nothing sticking to the roads and it's always warmer/drier NE of here.

The webcams show Redmond area looking really nice right now. Weather forecast calling for mid fifties for the next few days-------Hmmmm !
The Pass is getting better by the minute. On the other hand would hate to go all the way over there and be the Lone Ranger.

Come on riders-----Any takers ?

In. Got the ok a few days ago, hope to be there early enough Fri for a ride. But since I got the aux light temp wired early isn't much of a problem.

Wet Desert? In!
I'd definitely rather ride in rain/snow on the east side than rain/fog over here. The only pass I have to deal with is 140 past Lake of the Woods, which should be easy-peasy.
Leaving tomorrow morning. Probably going to 'splore around China Hat Road if it's possible, then grab some fire wood and head over to Crooked River.

Wet desert is right! Once you've driven oven the passes (I say drive, unless you're crazy enough to ride over in the snow) you'll be rewarded with some of the best conditions possible over here!

I'm headed out later today. Snow in the passes has never slowed me down much.

Checked the webcams on highway 97, now I'm leaning towards wimping out. Weather looks good enough once you get in the area, but there is definitely snow getting to there. I'm a wimp about snow on highways. Couple hours before the final go/nogo decision has ot be made, I'll check again in a bit.

Well, it looks like I can turn the 2.5 hours trip into a 6+ hours trip and avoid snow covered passes. Might do it. Going to go get some lunch and decide. I haven't even packed yet.
