Those two small towns (Packwood and Cougar) where I saw you two, are so packed with bikes of so many kinds, it's really quite amazing.
So many 100s of loud Harleys and so many Sport Bikes, and so few Dual Sports.
I'm sure our DS group was busy hiding and riding the Forests, Rather than being seen out on the highways.

It sure was nice to see Tom's smiling face and meet you, Gregulator, at Packwood's "Cruisers Pizza" the day after our little tangle in the Rocky Hell of Jeep Trail 676 down from Quartz Mtn.

I saw that white 990, hvman, trailing that group at Chelatshie, and my backwards wave was directed at you.
That Sunday I saw you was our very last foray into unknown forests before the end of my 19th day of riding and camping across the North tip of CA, all through Central and Eastern Oregon, the Western edge of the Idaho Panhandle, and the trip back home through the WA Cascades.
What an adventure. Surely the most epic in my life so far....

I'll get around to a proper ride report soon, but I gotta play catch-up at work,
making up for almost 3 weeks of hooliganizing through 10 or more NW National Forests.

Got up and headed up to Tully Jane and Snow cap Inn. Absolutely amazing!!!! ........
.......Then head down the Dee highway And out to green point reservoir upper and lower.......
........Looks like a great place to bring my XR.
Then its on out Kingsley road. And ended up driving by Some inmates little tree farm.
All and all some great riding.

Well you guys in the hood have inspired me to take some great rides. So I thought maybe I'd better throw some pictures in here........
Well, I'm glad we acheived our goals of attracting visitors to our beautiful home.
Now, we expect you to vacation here correctly, though....
Come, ride through once in a while, spend as much money as you can here,
wish you could live here, but never actually move here.
We want your money and your exposure, but we don't want any more traffic or people

I'm glad you had a great time here, jjdun7, from your pictures and report, you sure did do some GREAT loops around our homes.
I'll keep you in mind for a little riding shindig I might be planning for a bit later this year.....

Well, Bug Sister, you're right, I'm overdue.
We did go on a good long ride before I left on my Big Adventure.

Red Hill Rd is a most beautiful one lane paver that begins about 2 miles from our door.



The bridge leading accross the Middle Fork of the Hood River has been washed out since the 2006 storms and floods,
blocking access to this most awesome loop from our side of the Red Hill.

This Spring......IT'S OPEN !! With a brand new bridge.
This sweet road provides many places to stop and take in the views.
There is never any traffic, like AT ALL,
so we can take up the whole road and get our pictures.




Red Hill (FS16) Connects to the Famous Lolo Pass Rd, in the West Fork Hood River Valley.
From there we rode Lolo (FS18) North, to Lost Lake Rd,
and then we took the little known gem, Jones Creek Rd, into the back "secret" entrance to the Lost Lake Campground.

Jones Creek Rd still has a sign at the gravel beginning that says "Road Closed 2 miles ahead", and we like it that way;
It keeps all the Big Shitty folk that over visit Lost Lake off this little Gem.
Little do they know, that it has been back open for 3 years now, with brush cut, just for us, apparently....
Mustangshelly rides it like a seasoned pro :




I can see that big grin right through that helmet, can you?



After cruising through Lost Lake Campground, we exit and take the long way home on Lake Branch Rd (FS13)
This is a road that the road bicyclers like, they can ride the steep two-lane to Lost Lake in the morning,
then slowly cruise this one-lane paver all the way back down the hill, into Dee,
not even pedalling much if they don't want to.
Bicycles are all the traffic we see on this road that day

I'll second that !!!
Bennett Pass is one of the roads I want to take the "WABDR to WetFest" group on our way down to Tumalo.

Work Sucks.
Even after a big long ride, I'm still freaking jealous that you were there and I was not.

I have begun my Ride Reports

"Reports" is plural,
because I am contributing to s1marks' very well-done "7 ride the OBCDR" thread.

And, because my ride lasted for 19 days, not just the 5 days that we rode the OBCDR,
I am doing another report on my entire Adventure.

I found that by picking and pointing on my Atlas,
that this method found me a series of roads to be as good as anything on the "Original and Official OBCDR"
that Mrmagoolin did such an excellent job of documenting and setting up gpx files for the GPS

I have titled my Ride Report:
19 days, 13 National Forests and a National Park in 4 states


Please enjoy; and please comment or heckle, as you see fit
