Here are a couple pictures from the past 2 days' adventures. More to come but I'm off now to go be "Where In So Cal Is Cammy San Diego".

Damn you drive fast when I'm not around!

What doesn't kill me does NOT make me stronger. It makes me anxious, bitchy, and vulnerable...but nobody wants to see that embroidered on a pillow...Lisa Kogan...thx LXL...sorry i stole it from you! Ok, maybe I'm not sorry :-P

Cool video. Forest looks great 3x time would have been the way I like to roll sometimes.
I guess I will have to start learning the numbers for the roads

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.


Someone who thinks logically provides a nice contrast to the real world.

2N93 still hasn't opened for the season yet. Also, the gate on 2N13 at 3N14 is still closed. 2N13 is the road to get to Butler Peak.

Update from yesterday - The snow patch is barely noticeable on 3N12, in fact we saw a small Honda car (Civic, I think) that I have to assume passed over the snow patch unless they drove up & turned around before it.
We completed the eastern section of 3N08 - map: [Click Here]. 4WD is a must for this part of the road as there is a steep, rocky section of the road.
3N14 from 3N08 to Big Pine Flat is in great shape and I believe a passenger car would have no trouble making it from Fawnskin to Big Pine Flat on this route - map: [Click Here]
From Big Pine Flat you can head East on 3N16 which is supposed to be a good road (green rating, I believe). But there is a section just east of Big Pine Flat that had seen much erosion in the past few years. We did not need 4WD for any of this road yesterday. We went all the way to 2N09 - map: [Click Here] but the higher clearance of the Tundra was nice to have. There was one spot where I tried to cross a rutted section on the road and ended up having only my left front and right rear wheels on the ground! I had to back up and approach the rut from a different angle to get through.
3N97 - map: [Click Here] and 3N04Y - map: [Click Here] have been closed, I believe, since the Butler 2 Fire. They still have closed gates at the A & B markers on the previous 2 map links.

A change of underwear is helpful, also

I'm going to be very careful AP! I have the rash and that's why I went back to the doc. It's hard on my pride to miss work but I know I have to. I have over 600 hours sick leave built up and that's what' it's for! Hi CK good to hear from you.

We just keep using the hand sanitizer and Lysol to avoid spreading it. Our desks have an assortment of remedies in and on them, depending on what works for each of us.

BBNona - be really careful and watchful with the strep. Had a tech that got it back at the end of October. Didn't see him again until just a couple of weeks ago. Ended up with Rheumatic Fever and a really nasty skin splotches. Looked like leprosy for a while. Get it treated properly and the first time. Good old Medical on top of their game once again NOT. And eventually the meds he needed weren't covered under Medical and a 2oz tube cost him over $1000 per tube. Good luck and get to feeling better, same with you SSJ. We are going on round 3 of the cough/croup stuff.

Hi BBNona and SSH2012,
Sorry you're so sick and hope you all get well soon. A lot of my friends have this awful cold, too. I had the flu/cold for the last few years, so I had decided to get the flu shot last October, and so far so good. Get lots of rest and drink water. The house will wait.

I know what you mean SSJ! i've been sick and miserable for over a week just went back to the doctor today and it turns out I have strep throat. You can only watch so many movies and my house is falling apart!
