I was wondering about the road up Eagle Creek. I know the outfit logging up there friend of mine runs loader for one of the crews working there and he said the road was bad, no sure why the USFS let them go as far as they had with the mud. I worked up above Lake Wenatchee on the fire break this summer, could be some good areas up there. And yes the Headwaters is an excellent place to get refreshed!!! I will be in Leavenworth Thursday also if you need a hand with anything(white Dodge with Tucker 2000 riding on it)

Ya, total bummer they are up there this time of year. It has completely ruined the road access into that country with the heavy truck traffic on that old road. I found some good country above the lake that will do just fine for a run and place to set up for food and adult beverages for the afternoon. Cheers!

With I would have seen the one on's post sooner but I went up to Burt's place today hopping to snowmobile our route for next weekend maybe complete the full loop. I thought maybe I would find a few trees to cut out of the road but instead I found this. The mud was deep enough I was dragging the differential.

I'm glad to here we have a backup plan!
Thank you to (Tye One On)
From everyone

The tucker crowd shouldn't mind the mud. This one passed me this evening, it had so much mud it was hard seeing the boggie mounts.

Changed my mind it isn't worth the headache to pull my blade off so we will be able to dress up parking lot if need be. I should land in Leavenworth around noon Thursday.

The work on our machine won't be done in time so we have to cancel.
We have a room with a queen bed reserved for Friday and Saturday at Der Ritterhof. If somebody else needs that room let me know ASAP, I'll be canceling the reservation this evening.

Cheeto you should still come, I'm sure you will find several seats open for you to ride along. I for one have available space.

I'd man up and do it but my co-pilot disagrees. Apparently the plan has already changed to us going "rummaging" this weekend to work on some "barnwood projects".:glare:

I made it to the first Snowcat Jamboree...maybe it'll be like a class reunion where I get over there every 5 years. :)

Well we had a seat for you the first year and will keep two open this year just in case you are able to convince your copilot to ride in coach.

Yes, I was lucky enough to get to ride in 3 separate cats the first year. Very thankful to you all for that and the current offers. Hopefully next year.

Highway 2 to Leavenworth is probably one of the most scenic drives I have experienced in a while. Truly EPIC!
