Looks like a fun trip!!  Burgdorf is on our list of places to hit.

 

Not too much smoke either, it's been clearing the last few days down here as well.

 

We spent Thursday and Friday nights in the Deadwood Lookout.

Many counties in Oregon it's illegal to cut down a standing tree for firewood. Even just for camp wood. Crazy!

That's a rule I've never heard before, as long as the tree is dead it's fair game on all the USFS ground I have been on. That doesn't count trees in closed areas, obviously.

You should see it now this morning I can barely see the next ridge north of me. Every morning the inversion sets in and lays the smoke down good.

 

Mike, I can see it now!

 

:drool:  = you and that dead standing timber.

 

Naw... This is all lodge pole. A lot of people like this stuff I feel there is just too much saw work for such a little piece. I'll still burn it. But I would cut either 4 foot or 8 foot poles and haul them out. Then I have to buck it up again at home.

To Dave 110.....the source for those truck panels is www.jcwhitney.com.  Select category "exterior" and you'll find the Wilmore Manufacturing Rocker Panels that I gave to Michael for a birthday gift.  I like this company and have not been disappointed with many purchases.  Drive safe, Moparmom

 Sure some beautiful country.I was looking on google earth and found a plane crash site on loon lake south of Secesh Meadows with a very interesting bit of history.Have you ever been to it?Sure nice to hear that your mom is able to get around with you,I'm a couple of years younger than her and had to slow down because of a couple of heart attacks.I sure enjoy reading all the posts from all you members on The Lighter Side Of Mopar ,Kinda reminds me of growing up in Northern Wisconsin.We cut and burned wood ,Carried water from a pump outside Had abig garden where we raised all our vegetables, had three apple trees.My mom canned all those fruits and vegetables and we kept them in a root celler.Thanks again for the pictures,makes me feel like I'm there with you.

Wife's  Aunt and Uncle  live in  Weed,  Cali..  in the shadow of  Mt. Shasta.       They've  been  under a shroud  since  June,  and  the  big  cumulous  clouds  (smoke generated)  have been   awesome..    some say  up to 50,000 feet  high!   Uncle says they look like   giant  stacks of  popped corn  with  many  different colors too

Dangs things only produce lightning  and  more fires....  never a drop of rain.

To Hodag56 (Art)  Thank you for your kind words.  You know Michael throws a bumch of pictures out there but he did not relate what we were/are doing.  We travel the back roads as much as we can to interact with the people and learn from them how they are changing their life styles to be more efficient in the 20th century.  At Berdorff the owner remains there all through the winter season and snowmobilers make the 30 mile trip up there from McCall, Id.  At Secesh Meadows, Id.  the people at the store/bar were working to put in a kitchen to serve hot food for those snowmobilers and without power this is a feat.  At 6000 feet and snow that get deep enough to collapse a roof, this is risky.  So you study the roofs at the old hot springs and look at the beams in the store/bar.  Solar?  All sorts of questions get tossed out there,but people are determined to make a go of it.  We've learned so much from the back country people and their ways.  People are friendly, kind,etc and delighted to tell you all about how they do some things and why.  The exchange of info is priceless.  We know that old WW II plane is back there, but we haven't hiked in to look at it.  We believe in KEEPING IT SIMPLE and eliminate the confusion in life.  Tell me about that root cellar when you get time.  How big was it, etc.  We're thinking along those lines here.  Peace, Moparmom

To Ranchman....I've been going back and forth to Boise with Michael taking transmissions down and bringing them back.  I've had nothing but storms following us.  A lot of rain and high winds.  Since I need to oil the deck around the house, this is setting me back.  Peace, Moparmom
