11/10 tour of grime.

Recommended Posts

Went for a tour around the Clackamas River Ranger District with scoobyclimbs.

(Basicly the area between Mt.Hood and Mt. Jefferson)

Started out by going up Goat Mt. (I just love that climb, the reward is the view)

Then headed for the Mt. Jefferson/ Olallie Lake area.

Lots of pics were taken, but most are not on my camera.

But I'll share what I got on mine.

SC leaving a muddy/rocky play area. I think we had more fun on the trails going in and leaving than once in the gravel pit. The mud was like grease and none of the fun climbs were happening without swampers and Linclon Lockers.

One hill was just a slip n slide.

Leaving Goat.

Had to stop and give him my camera. (batteries died)

(I though we agreed not to stop once under way in that part of the trail...)

Back underway. After this the trail ceased to exist so we turned around and did it again.

 

'bout all I got.

Fun times. The wheeling went well into the night. Got to use the overhead lights alot.

I got a wierd vibration from the engine when climbing hills on the highway now though. Gonna check it out, change my rear diff oil and give it some more. :)

That must have been awesome sorry I missed out

 

It was good times. The water was a bit intimidating at first. Looked real soft on the bottom. It was, but only a few inches of mud, then rock.

 

We have to just plan way ahead and get the bunch of us going. :)

Hey let me know the next time you guys head up Goat. I've been up South Fork several times over the last 30 years but I haven't been up goat yet.

No problem. :)

I head up there quite often actually.

Keep wanting to make a night run one weeknight to see the city lights from up there, but the last time I tried I got up to the point of turning off the pavement but decided it was just way too windy. I figured it would not be fun to get up there, find I can't stand in the wind, and maybe find I have to clear the rail to get down. So I came home.

 

Next time it looks like the weather might be clear and I have time I'll proly head up there. (it's best when you can see the view)

Or maybe sooner.

I'll let ya know.

Gonna try to get a subie group one of these days when all schedules work out right.

Well then we'll have to go up one night.

Have to keep an eye on the weather for a clear night.

I'm always down for night wheelin'.

But always going up Lolo for night runs cause it's familiar and close to home (in case something trys to go wrong) alone is fun but gets too same old same old. Still fun though.

Gotta work on the subie this week, just tweaks mainly, and install a CB. (and the weather is supposed to be bad anyway)

But we'll see how things go next week maybe.
