    Thanks Jerry.....made it home fine in the old fella's 2500HD with the 8' Fisher HD plow on......4 wheel high all the way!

    Just the right amount of ice this morning....not enough to really hurt the forest except for already compromised trees...but really beautiful in the clear, bright sunshine!

    Mine was a bit lackluster out of the box so I put a 12" bar on it and found it better , Jerry had a look at it , gutted and opened up the muffler .
    Way better now :)

    Hi guys.
    It was 57F here, had 19 as a low, should be another nice sunny day tomorrow.
    I have relocated to Fort Jones, about 80 miles inland, almost directly east of where I was, not missing the cold, damp and windy coast.

    It is indeed, we do get some rain, 22 inches, instead of 72'', including a couple feet of snow, not all at one time.
    The lack of wind is very nice, no more howling gales. Also no tsunamis.
    The view from my front porch, where I sit and have coffee in the afternoon.

    Hey Randy! You said you were headed to the other side of the mountains for all the above stated reasons when we met up last summer. Glad your plans worked out!

    May try and look you again sometime.....the daughter has seemingly sunk some roots down in Portland at least for the foreseeable future so very likely we'll be out that way again.

    Yeah...the same here.....now there is a thick layer of ice on every unsalted, plowed area....I tried to not plow anymore than just the snowbanks left by the road plows so they wouldn't freeze.....at least get a little traction on the frozen snow! But more snow coming in today later and on Thurs......then Fri it's back to the subzero deepfreeze. 11 more daze of this climate and we'll be in the Fla Keys......hopefully no ice there.....except maybe in a beverage!!!

    Drove through there one night after turning off the #5 at Yreka heading down to Eureka, not sure I spelled those places correctly, would have preferred to have made that drive during high noon daylight. Would like to do the Happy Camp run and return back through Ft Jones on a future trip out that way.

    Oh yeah Robin, a teeming metropolis of 850.
    My partner and I bought a little old store, I live here, Harriet is building a house about 15 minutes away, with a view of Scott Valley and Mt. Shasta.
    I love this town, almost everything is walking distance, even for this wore out old guy.
    Jerry. the roads are ''scenic'' I've driven 199 to Obrien, over Grayback to Happy Camp then the Scott River Road several times.
    It might 80 miles as the hawks fly, it is 175 miles by road, close to 4 hours.
