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.

Have you heard if the public will be allowed to drive to Butler Peak this summer?

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 have a friend who's experimenting with some solar, at peak those dozen panels put out a scary amount of power, big issue is storage for use at night. And looking at a book on solar tech there's a heckuva lot to learn far as battery types and how not to fry them. For the time being Ill stick with the woodstove, kerosene lights, and century old proven low-tech to get thru the powerless times. Really the hardest part was a (very) cold bathroom in the morning, and trying to read a book by lamplight . I can easily go more low tech but all this has gotten me through two really brutal a winters...

Yes, my dream is someday to cut that ugly line that comes into the house. The technology is there but the costs haven't come into line yet, but they will. Part of that equation would be having a natural gas generator.

Too bad Edison won't let u run on these commercial generators . You have to be on the grid.... Edison isn't rich enough !

The house is on the market. I had a couple today look at it . It would say they were in their 60s. The really liked the idea of having that generator .

On my Gas bill no joke it showed an extra 1.20 for the generator. We lost power in RS at least four times a day for almost two weeks when we had our big storm!

Cinderella. What was your natural gas bill when it ran for several days? Of course the Edison bill should be small.

Today, my tribal name is Burning Throat. My so called friend Blowing Wind, and his buddy, Pollen Dust, are pick on me.
Hopefully, I don't turn to Running Nose or Watery Eyes tomorrow. (The kids on the street would have a fieldday teasing me.)
