    "Had a nice return trip better suited for longer days and warmer weather, but a nice ride anyway. Might be the best ride this year yet.:wink::wink:"
    That was last week. (2.2.2014)

    Now that there is no chance of anyone riding my return trip this weekend that I need to worry about, I will let the cat out of the bag on one fun, for me anyway, return trip from the Fort.
    I have been wanting to add a thyme to the route, and as an added attraction, I want to go past as many WigWam logging burners as possible.
    Note:It's not paved all the way. Don't take your shiny street bike!

    Fort Hoskins>Summit>Nashville,WW north east of intersection>Siletz>Toledo, should be a WW here>Elk City,WW 1/8 mile down stream on the other side of the river, in the trees>
    >Harlen, WW 1 1/2 mile east of Harlan on left (north) side of the road>Marys Peak and Hwy 34.

    This was 2 hours 10 min. from the Fort, w/ out stops, and my knowledge of the roads.:wink::wink:
    At this junction (Marys Peak road and Hwy 34) the guys from the south can return thru Alsea Falls > Monroe. There is a WW in Dawson for the more adventurous....
    Guys going east and north can turn left to Philomath to see Clemens Mill WW.
    Cheers!
    Now to get the XR650R out for that flat track I want in the back yard while we have all this snow! Zoob? You game? Or your place?:D:D

    If you know of any more WigWams that can be added to this route, please chime in.:ear:ear

    Will most likely do a Ft Hoskins gathering soon. It will be just a day or two notice.
    Hope this snow and ice goes away quickly.

    This is like a school snow day make up!
    We get to celebrate Bob Marley Birthday, The Ides of March [15th] and St Patrick's Day all at the same time!

    TENTH annual bob marley's birthday celebration, Sunday, 03/16/2014



    bob marley 02/06/1945



    need an excuse for a sunday ride!


    here is one!


    Sunday MARCH 16 2014 @ eleven forty-five am. Meet and celebrate bob marley's birthday @ ft hoskins park, hoskins or.



    this is the tenth year! It has been a lot of fun.



    this is a no host event. Riders will bring their own food, plates, utensils, coffee cup and music to participate. On site: A picnic table, charcoal and grill to prepare your celebratory dinner. If you want to share food, bring something everyone will enjoy! Each rider should bring a piece of firewood!



    directions: Head west from corvallis or on highway 20. Go through philomath and stay on hwy 20 a few miles. Turn off at wren or onto or hwy 223.

    hwy 223 goes n towards kings valley and eventually dallas or.

    follow hwy 223 approx 6 miles n. Turn left to hoskins. There is a rural fire station opposite the turn. Ft hoskins park sign is about 1/4 mile just after the lh turn off hwy 223. Proceed west and follow signs to park.

    the approximate gps coordinates are: latitude: 44.675397, [COLOR=#00ee0]longitude: -123.4542703)[/COLOR]

    use first gear at park entrance. It is paved, but steep with a sharp rh turn almost immediately. Once past that, you will be rewarded at the top of the hill.

    this is a newly designated benton county park. Ft hoskins was sited there from 1856 to 1866.

    hope to see you there!



    disclaimer: This is a fun event. Celebrating bob's birthday in no way condones drug use, illegal items or supports his way of life. We picked bob because it was the only other significant event listed on the search engine! Ja mon! [/QUOTE]
