    Very Nice, Mr. Geezer. One more world to conquer. I am out in that area a couple of times a year. Would love to buy you dinner sometime.

    Dude! You're supposed to be retired. I'm sorry but dinner is getting off kind of cheap. Now, say, if you were to rent an entire "pleasure" ranch in Nevada and invite me and 20 or 30 of my closest friends for a week of pleasant frivolity, that, would go a long way toward absolving you of the sin of working too much. Just sayin'...

    Hurricane Ridge is mostly paved then there's a 9 mile spur to Point Obstruction. Your panzer would be bored. But damn if that's not upendicular. Pucker Factor 8.7 Gotta check out Deer Park but its Park Service and a campground at the end so road will probably be tame but it's right in the heart of the big mts so bound to be spectacular. I got a 500 mile tour of FS roads all around the peninsula two years ago but I'm bound by a non-disclosure agreement. (See Mesrs. Dammit and Pakled) But I already have work-arounds.

    Now I have to negotiate the WA sidecar regs. I'm thinking the term WTF was invented in Washington.

    It was just like that coming home from PDX via Astoria on 101 today! I escaped by riding Smith Creek, N of Raymond, to Brooklyn and over the mountain to Oakville. Nice break from the highway. dd

    I'm starting to see that strategy and tactics play a big part in navigating the NOP. There are some places on 101 that you simply do not make a left turn onto it. But that said, the back country doesn't see that many people. Sure, the park, but seems that if it's not paved, you're safe. For the moment. Just watch that big swoopy "S" curve just before PA. Biker died there two weeks ago.
