    A great SS adventure

    With winter in full swing in Oregon and getting tired of riding the same old great trails SSConny and I headed out for a exploration ride of and area know as Gowdyville. The DOD used to ride here way back before Whypass was ever discovered.

    Great ride and for the most part all of our old trails and the double track still exist. There was some hiking and climbing over logs but all in all a good day on the bike.

    Pic's in order.

    More Pics

    It's amazing what you will find just riding along in the backwoods,

    Not sure if the tree planters left their drinks or someone was a real bad shot, but these two empty Corona Bottles were about 3 miles from the closest Closed gate.

    It starts out fine, and just get's steeper and more rutted
    This was about the worst Hike-a-Bike zone, know as Purple Bra

    That sounds like code or something

    And forgive an obvious sounding comment, but I'm from Chicago. Those trees are so tall and straight, it looks somewhat surreal to me...

    It is code...
    Those trees aren't even tall for here, you should see the big ones. It's a good thing they don't move fast, though there have been a few times when I've wished they would dodge. They are a bich to hit, ask Dirtydown.

    Mostly, had a tree accross it. The upper section, can't remember what we called it but if I remember right it was the name sake of King of the Wild Front Tire, wasn't to good as they had driven a Cat around up there.

    Plywood, Blue Hoover, Buik Lake, etc... were all about the same as the past few times I have been out there.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    So where is this place? Looks interesting?

    Always looking for new trail to explore.

    Holy crap, the first branch on that thing would be considered a decent sized tree in my neck of the woods.

    It's on Territorial Hwy, just south of Lorane, but I forworn you it's more of a fun exploration day than a specific trail loop or something like it.
