    Here are two key shots from my forest map. Should be high res enough to print, or at least view in the jpg formats.

    The snow level is at 5700 ft. below Hull and taking M61 will still get you over 6k ft. so you may not be able to get thru. The forest service web site says it's still gate further north at around Bently Ridge.

    Got the bikes and all the gear loaded in the truck tonight, ready to roll out tomorrow after work! I am planning to get to the campground around 6 or 7 pm. Thursday morning run on the bike to Upper Lake Ranger Station for some maps and a firewood permit, then searching for firewood on the way back. Plan on taking the truck in the afternoon and getting us a load or two of firewood for the weekend. Doubt if I get any sleep tonight!!:lol3

    My vacation was finally granted and I found a sitter for my dogs... Looks like I'll be rolling out of south orange county sometime tomorrow before noon. It is going to be a great day for a long road ride...

    route plotted... around 7-8 (depending on traffic thru LA) hours riding to get there... should be a wonderful ride...

    I can bring a bit of firewood if it will help.

    That would be awesome. I am hoping that I can find a downed tree or two to cut up, but just in case any extra fire wood would be welcome! If nothing else, I will load up the truck with smaller stuff, but would like some bigger logs to make feeding the fire easier.

    I have a big pile of ceder planks from a deck I demo'd just last week. Not the best of firewood but If we have room in the truck I will bring some of the dry and non-rotted stuff.

    Wife and I will be in the regular campground, not the group campground. We should be there no later than 6 pm tomorrow night. We'll have a fire going and some beer on ice, swing on by!!!

    Ha, I was just thinking that mine IS too warm! Time to get the thin one out.

    Bike is loaded in the truck, so I guess this whole shebang is actually happening. See y'all tomorrow!

    Dean has probably already raised the flag, but the Minister of Beer will repeat that we're gonna need ice. If you can bring a couple bags with you, that would be a big help!

    I'm still en route. GPS says I should be there around 4am. If I get tired, I'll stop for a rest. See ya soon.

    (edit) got a bit tired and cold, so I'm at Denny's in Santa Rosa, right off the 101.
