Hey guys,

I'm finishing up the minor things on my sube this week and am wanting to take it out this weekend to find some dirt. I'm in Salem and looking for areas around here (Vancouver area to Corvallis roughly). Anyone know of good spots for a beginner (I've done some offroading in my Ranger but not a lot) or want to SHOW me some areas? I'm hoping to go out Saturday late AM as long as the weather holds up.

Thanks!
Aaron

I grew up in Sandy, love mt hood :cool:

I'm going up to Crooked Finger today, but I'd definitely be down in a couple of weeks. My dad has yet to see my rig anyway, so that'd give me a good excuse to drive it out to visit him.

Olallie lake is sweet. Haven't spent much time in Hood River, but I'd reckon there are a lot of trails off 35?

did yesterday's rain keep the dust in check?

how were the olallie dirt/gravel roads?

I went up to Hoodriver Sunday with my son for short hike . We cruised up Post canyon rd and then I hooked on Binns hill rd up high and wound up just below Mt.Defiance and blew thru some snow drifts wahoo! Dug out and pulled a minivan stuck in the snow buried to the frame! Subie pull no#4! the snow is still around 3500-4,000ft and deep drifts! Olallie is just out of the question for now given it's 5,000ft maybe in a few weeks!

Whilst enroute on Postcanyon to Binns hill rd I caught up to a 3gen outback loaded with kayaks! You could say it was abit dusty!
