It's on MortimerSickle's "Dream Rides" list on his profile.......
I am interested in the WA BCDR, of course. I'm interested in riding the shit out of the NW
I've been watching the thread carefully, but it's another week of vacation,
and I've already got more than 6 weeks scheduled off for biking stuff this Summer.

I did "Sound Rider's Sasquatch" ride 2 years ago that went from Hood River to Canada off-Highway through the Cascades on several of the same roads as the WA-DR.
I spent 4 days riding North, and one long day riding back solo to Hood River the hard way through Wenatchee Forest, etc.

I spent 8 days last Summer Cage-Camping with wife & dogs all around Winthrop and the North Cascades area,
and we stayed in the deep woods the whole time.
We only came back out to civilization once. It was awesome and relaxing.

So, it's not like I don't want to do WA again,
and it sounds like a kick-ass time for sure with ADVers,
It's just that I feel I've seen some of the WA Cascades already,
and so much other stuff is just higher on my "many-day" rides list for THIS year.

The Oregon area on the OBCDR comprises area I have not been to at all,
neither in Cage or on Bike, and I feel I need to see it, this year.

On the other hand, if it has been logged or mined and roads already exist,,
...then that land should be open for public use" (peterman)
