I plan to be around Hood River until Sunday and have a truck if anyone needs anything as well.
Though it's a ways away, I washed my truck today hoping it will pull some rain on through.
Just don't polish it; we don't want it to move through too fast.
As previously posted in another thread I have truck &space as well over in Gresham.

Tripcheck says: "EB I-84 is closed from exit 17 in Troutdale to MP 62 in Hood River."
Does that mean west bound traffic is moving . . . anyone been there and can say if its a mess or worth trying to get thru?
Westbound on I-84 is open. Watch out for those curious drivers wanting to see the fire remnants while going 70 mph. They hit the brakes all of a sudden. Freaked me out a couple times.

I'm staying away for at least another month.
I rode I-84 west Hood River to Cascade Locks on Sunday. No issues. Many of the exits are still closed, compete with flashing lights and signs. I'm not sure what it's like now, but on Sunday, you could get an up close and personal view of the fires burning just up from the interstate. It was heart breaking to see it so close.
The road surface is fine with no issues.
Today they issued flash flood warnings in the burn area due to heavy rain.
The fish are gonna hate this, lotsa silt is gonna run off and make a mess.
How's the fire doing with all the moisture?
Last I heard it was 48% contained.
Can someone explain to me how they figure containment?
Seems that every time they say the containment percentage has increased, the acreage has increased by a greater percentage.
I doan gets it.
