Wow, hope Erica's ok :eek1
I'm in Portland but willing do what little I can from here. I sent you a PM.
I hope everything is okay, I was looking forward to reading this thread as she shows so much of an adventurous spirit.
I just received two calls from different Sheriff's - she's on the border of 3 counties in two states so they're figuring out who's going to help... help's on the way I'm told, though it might take them a minute - she's pretty far out there on a switchback gravel road... probably to find her there camping on the road, sitting around a fire in a bikini drinking beer and toasting marsh mellows!
I have a feeling of what happened, and am confident she's going to be fine, with some good stories to tell.
Just had more conversations with the dispatcher, I email them the SPOT shared page link, they forwarded it to the responder who is using it in real time in his truck to find her. They said it would be hours until they could get there - if it was an "emergency" they would send a chopper.
Watching this closely.
Is she still sending help messages?
help messages have stopped about an hour ago, but no movement. They were coming every five minutes.
sheriff just called again, with a few questions about SPOT and thanking me because the Hess road the SPOT map shows isn't even on the Sheriff's maps - they're using SPOT maps online to find her.
I'm on the east coast and it's late... I'm going to sleep with my phone by me but probably won't update until the morning.
Just when I was enjoying her story and pictures, I read this. :eek1
I sincerely hope she's okay.
I hope all is well with Erica.
Hope all turns out well
I hope everything's ok....
This RR is about to get even more interesting. Best wishes in Hell's Canyon Erica-
Oh boy :eek1
Hope all is well, Erica.
You had me at peanut butter and bread...!
And then salt flats!? You are truly one after my own heart.

Hope all is well. Isn't SPOT awesome?
I am hopeful Erica is allright. Probably another front end push thanks to a loaded bike, no knobbies, and downhill gravel,
this time with more bike damage. The good news is that for sure she will not need to spend the night on the hill.
You're the MAN for giving her the SPOT
She'll be ok, help is on the way
I hope all is well.
Waiting to hear
