Sounds good. Hope I'm not too busy working this summer. Got a job lined up as OHV patrol down at Shotgun Creek.

Hey, that's my daily commute! If you have to commute there are worse routes to take, I'm sure.

FS17 off South Skagit Highway from last Saturday's beautiful weather... Wish I brought a camera and not just a cell phone with me.

I was going to try to hit this road within the next few weeks, probably on the Strom. How was it? Hit any snow?

I'm not too familiar with the area and think I only went up around half way. For the bit that I did see, it was clear with the higher up areas being a bit softer and slicker... No snow visible at the midway level and I had a lot of fun kicking out the back end in the slippery stuff. Definitely somewhere I will revisit as soon as I get my piggy back together from some carb cleaning, let me know if you'd like some company when you go!

Rode up river outside Estacada into the mountains over Easter weekend. Snow started at just over 3,000 ft.

Sorry about the cell phone pictures.

How do you like the new 250L? How is it on the highway? Power?
