Been spending a lot of time on San Juan Island building our house. No more sleeping in the uninsulated van at the moment. Current camp parking spot. 1613487670970.png

Lookin' good, calbiker. No sn*w there. Yuma, DVNP and The Salton Sea have been spared. Heck, even Galveston got hit.
The last pix verifies the "Found On Road, Dead" legend. :sweep:

I could use me some t-shirt and shorts WX. :idunno:

I drove past Shulman Grove towards the Patriarch Grove, 3 miles further down a gravel road towards Silver Canyon over next to where the Big Satellite Dishes and Antennas are. Actually higher than the BC visitor center. Still in the BC Nat Forest though

Did you come up or go down Silver Canyon Road? If so, are the switchbacks at the end of the canyon doable for a 170 4wd's turning radius?

I came up to Bristlecone Forest and kept driving straight past the outpost about 3 miles. Gravel roads topped with snow all the way. I did not drop in though. There was ice standing.

YIKES! Looks like pretty dry sn*w, though. Way colder in AR than BC. :hide:
Well its a ice sheet this morning (freeze-thaw has started). I awoke to sound of spinning tires and cursing... You can tell these folks aren't used to winter weather!

Thankfully all the snow will be gone by tomorrow. You can't keep the south cold for long, though apparently long enough (Texas, cough cough).

That is a good area, often overlooked by other folks in the region. The secret is to go in the winter so the bugs don't get you!
I was there in November and temp's were perfect and I didn't have any bug issues - and yes it's a great hiking, bicycling, rafting and dual sport bike area as there are lot's of dirt roads

That's why they gave us deserts. No rain, no traffic, no cops, no noise, no bugs. :dance:

I do love the desert, but there is also no water, minimal plant life, and shortage of cell service. :LOL:

Heh. All true.

But I bring my own water (and ice cold IPAs) And for a couple of days, I don't need no stinkin' cell service

and as for plants...
