    He hasn’t been around here much, and I don’t have his number, but I tagged @treeman so maybe he’ll respond

    Looks like his farm took a beating if I'm looking at the right spot on NOAA imagery. :(

    I was wondering about Treeman too. I bet he’s glad he sold all that timber a few years ago...last time I went to TreeFest the logging company had just finished with it, that was ‘14 I think. The TreeFest dealio just kinda lost steam, which is a shame ‘cause we sho nuff had us some good times out there. Even without that killer single track thru the woods, it was still a fun shindig:nod

    The winds in that storm were equal to an F3 tornado so yeah, anyone in that area got hit by a giant tornado. I can't even imagine.

    Glad Treeman is ok. I emailed him earlier and haven't heard back so I was wondering. I'd like to hear that Ogre is ok too.

    maybe Ogre will chime in again once he see what sort of damage there is.

    I feel like we could get in there on light DS bikes easier than most, and check it out

    Hurricane eye walls are loaded with tornados, micro bursts and vortexes that wreak havoc on everything in their path. The exeption being that one lone home built like a bunker in Mexico Beach...
    That’s the way I’d build my home if I could afford it... :deal

    It's been a bunch of years since i rode down Wewa Highway (access road to Ogre's area) but that's LOW land. Forget Power, they may still be doing temp roadbed repair just to get in

    Agree. It’s been some time for me too, but I don’t recall much highground
