    Yes, 84 eastbound is still closed! Your two easiest options are to go go highway 26 to 35 or you could always take 14 on the Washington side of the gorge & come over the bridge at Hood River.

    Totally off subject, but wasn't the Baja only available in 2013?[/QUOTE]

    I stand corrected sir, I meant to say Dakar. I want to go to Baja!!

    I got some Vanasche Motorsports 690 racks installed last night (Andrew went outta his way to get these done for us...wow!) and my breather cleaned. Bags arrived from amazon yesterday and I'm attaching those and packing this morning. Should be able to head out sometime close to noon. Heading east on 22 to Breitenbush and taking FR46 to 42 to US26 to 35, etc. Near as I can tell it's all open. Be there around 3pm or so I think. Jeremy has to bag this trip so I'm riding alone.

    If you live west of Hood River you will be finding an alternative route! Eastbound I/84 is closed between troutdale an Hood river!!:(
    Is it a big rock you just crawled out from under? Hehe

    No crazy rides planned. Not many people here yet but a few have left. Probably easiest to head here and go from there!

    Looks like you can go around the closed section of Lolo Pass. I was just on trip check again. If I'm reading the map correctly the section that is closed is the old road down and across the creek. It looks like if you turn right at the end of the pavement and take the easy way around you will bypass the closed section. Then hop on Red Hill to AVR. Wish I was going..
