    I'm not in charge of this run but I don't see why not. I don't think your rig will have any trouble. Mogs stock were 100,000 times more capable than most other rigs. But you already knew that ;)

    By the way...would be coming from Beaverton and thus via Highway 47. Meeting with the "Newberg" crew at Bald Mt. Road and Meadowlake Road? What time?

    Thanks! I'll have to pluck the CB from the other vehicle to bring with. CH22 it is.

    We are grouping up at around 7:20-7:25 in front of Carlton pack. So that puts us at the bald mt rd/meadow lake rd intersection around 7:45-8. See you there!

    Its been a long time since I have been that nervous wheeling. That hill was STEEP and loose. My valves were clattering by the time I got stopped at the little cut out. It was so soft, I just couldnt go anywhere but back down. Maybe if I had 500hp, full tube buggy, and nothing to live for, I might have tried a little harder. But, I didnt see anybody elses skirt behind me, so I guess I'm just that hard core:gunsmilie:

    well, everyone knows I have a lot of balls (almost 1,000,000 at last count) but I wouldn't even try that! Gotta hand it to you!:gun_bandana:
    I had a great time! I loved seeing new territory! Here's a few pics I took.

    Dan giving it his all!

    Nice pics. I love the Mogs. Some day I will have one, or parts of one:batman:

    That climb was so steep. I felt like an astronaut ready for take off when I finally stopped moving forward. The dirt just wouldn't support me anymore.

    I was happy to see the Girl Scout run so well. You guys made that other steep climb, when you were behind me, look easy.

    Monte- Who do we have to talk to, to organize some trail building or adoption? That place is prime location but it needs something besides retardedly steep climbs. More flat and technical so the carburated guys can hang. Do some scouting this year, before the snow hits, and then try and build or fix next summer when the snow melts off.

    It looks like you guys had a great time!! I am so jealous, I was thinking about you guys yesterday while I was stuck at work. I am really looking forward to the September 6th event and I should be able to make it. I'll either have the day or take some leave to make it. I got word of my schedule once I am out of training and I have a feeling this maybe my last opportunity for a wheeling trip for quite some time. :(

    Dan I totally agree.

    I have talked several times to the head guy at the Tillamook office about this very thing. He keeps telling me he will get back to me after he gathers more info, but then he never gets back to me. I call again and he gives me the same routine. I know they are busy and building and adopting trails aren't high on the priority list. I will shoot the guy another e-mail and call again, maybe I can get somewhere this time.

    I'm familiar with him. I don't know his name but I do know he is NOT on our side. We need to go over his head.

    I will get you his e-mail address and maybe we can both bother him. This guy is new to the OHV job, he started late last fall. The lady that was running it before was all for us building and doing things up there, but when she left all our plans went to s***.:mad:

    I rode with Dan on one these trails and even though he didn't make it, he gave it one H*** of an effort. His efforts were very impressive and he didn't give up easily. Thanks for letting me ride along Dan, I loved watching you work.

    Thanks Monte. The scout does most of the work. I just push pedals and pick gears.

    As for the ranger, send his addy over. I'll drop some names and see what I can do. I have professional trail building experiance as well as the 'official forest service guide to trail building'. Maybe we should poke around and see who else is trying to do the same thing, maybe tag team this guy. Strength in numbers right?

    Yeah, thats a good point, but I have to bid vacation 6 months in advance, so unless we've got some great planning skills, I don't know how well that would work. I guess it's time to fire up the old crystal ball!

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for the great time! The radiobox mog didn't take any damage...I guess I wasn't driving good enough! :tt2:

    Had a good time...sorry we had to take off early for the Rally. Ended up driving right past the staging area during the road rally the next morning. Lots of miles on the mog!

    Pat and I have some videos up on you-tube...but not many as we didn't bring the real vid cam.

    Loved the badass scouts! Thanks for having us along.
