    After all the "Little Pink Houses" stuff I figured I'd better get motorin' up the hill if we were gonna' make it... it was ~5pm (I think) by the time I left there and headed into Mt Rainier National Park... skies were not so ominous here - but it wasn't "warm" either...

    Anyways, I forget how much further it was... another ~30 miles or so, I guess, until we hit the end of the road. :vardy

    They say the snow level will drop to ~3,000 feet tonight, and we'll get snow on the major passes again... :vardy :vardy :1drink Good thing Mr. Nutsy is in a nice warm place. :norton

    We made it back home ~8pm or so - I had to break out the toe-warmers (stick 'em to your shirt, helps keep ya' warm) to make it down off the hill, and stopped off for some coffee and a few sessions with the hand-dryer in the can... :d ~150 miles round trip. :norton HEY! If you're gonna' come to the WetSide, ya' gotta' go to Paradise - I think it's in the r00lz. :deal

    Little far for me to go get it, but I tried that zooming and it got worse the closer I got.

    Dude, I don't know how to tell you this, but that stuff on CSI where they take a shitty, blurry photo and zoom all the way into 1 pixel and can read the super fine print? Well, that's shit. It don't happen that way in the real world.

    Perhaps something like lat/long coordinates would be more helpful. The last hide had those and it still took somebody 6-7 months to find it.
