    I created a Goggle account for Advrider's to place information on fire roads that are closed - Gated, washed out ect.

    Since Washignton state got hit by a big storm the last few days (08) some fire roads are going to be washed out or impassable. Sure would be nice to know in advance on road closure so everyone can plan alternate routes.


    Go to Fire Road Closure. Below are a few states I started. Ones in Red have closures.

    USA
    Alaska (AK) - None
    California (CA)
    Colorado (CO) - None
    Idaho (ID) - None
    Oregon (OR) - None
    Washignton (WA)



    Europe

    Asia/Oz/Kiwi land
    Outer Darkness

    Thanks,

    I thought it would be nice to have information on road closure for all states.

    I created a map section for each regional area.
    As long as everyone put the state abbrevaiton at the beginning or the title in the correct region it will be easier to follow.

    Click on the link to go to that region.

    East
    Central
    West
    Pacific Northwest
    Rockies
    Great White North

    Nice idea, but in the People's Republik of Commiefornia, they're always closing new roads. Too many to count. :cry :kboom

    Stuck between reality and insanity.
    Just to digress a little here, it ain't the state that is closing most of the roads, at least not the ones we ride around SoCal, it's the Feds, most often the Forest Circus. Now back to our regularly scheduled program.


    Great idea KTMarty! :thumb I'll try to pass the word along and update things when I can locally, but as was mentioned, conditions change a lot around CA, and often without any "official notice" or any discernable rationale. The recent fires really had an impact on local access in some of our areas. Hell, they haven't even reopened a good deal of stuff from the very wet winter we had 2 years ago.

    Anyway, once again, great idea. :beer

    Added new gate info off 104 on the Olympic [SIZE=-1]Peninsula in WA.

    This area is pretty much closed up (Private property) but lots of riding just south on 104 . Take Snow Creek Rd exit.
