From the Jones Creek Trail Head parking lot to the meeting place 2 miles up the road, we'll be scouring the roadways, pullouts and shooting areas to spiff up the entrance into the forest.

It's really not too awfully bad. Mostly at the shooting sites. If we can send a 4 member crew down the road with a pickup, they'll be able to spiff up the roadside stuff fairly easily. Each shooting site is not too bad either, however, it really looks bad on us when it's so visible from the roadway. We'll need a couple more pickups to haul bags to a drop point (might be at the corrections facility but we'll nail that down before the event).

Lots of interest showing from the 4x4 & motorcycle community! We should have some help!

Found this on Saturday. Looks like they spun off the road, got stuck, tried to pull it out with a cable but it didn't work. So they left it and sure enough, the windows get busted out and the car got ransacked. I notified Officer Essman.

Lower L1000 just inside Yacolt Burn boarder line.

Looks like they tried but gave up pretty easily I think.

The snow on the lower part, around Jones Creek area, was very minimal and nothing on the road till you get past the meeting place, however, going up the L1000 from Livingston road was real thick and sticky stuff. Only 1 set of tracks all the way up the road and when you meet someone coming down, you could easily get stuck trying to make room. I made it up to the 4 corners, at the L1500, and turned around. No way was I going up any more! A few Jeeps did but I wasn't about to try it in my Colorado 4x4 (can't afford the towing or the damage!).

In it to win it. I will have bed space in the Taco for junk, But would really appreciate it if I could borrow someone magnet or brass pickup tool if needed. I have gloves, shovels, tools, winches and tow straps for bigger stuff.

Well dang. That looks like fun! And a good spot I ain't seen before on top of that. Must not have been Larch?

I just ordered the 1k, on top of the 30 assorted lbs of ammo I got on Thursday! :)

A prime membership with TSUSA is dangerous.

No, those pics are not on Larch (they are in Tillamook Forest). A couple of the places we'll clean up are good for shooting, and a couple are not. I'm sure you know that area.
