Damn you drive fast when I'm not around!

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

TracFone CDMA/V phones are hard to find. Most places that have TracFone, carry GSM type only.

Verizon Wireless is probably the best. It is the only one with service in pretty much all areas.

I've had TracFone. If you can get a CDMA/V phone, that isn't too bad. It runs off Verizon towers.

Whoops, within minutes I got my first email. False alarm. I have a Tracfone, nothing fancy, $100/yr. Always has connected up here and DTH.

I've been happy with t-mobile on the mountain the last few years. Yeah, it doesn't have as good coverage, but it works well from home (any place where terrain doesn't block the signal from the towers on Strawberry Peak is fine) and works when I go dth and I only pay about $100 a year using prepaid. Admittedly, I don't pay for data, though I think they have some decent data plans too. If you need better coverage, you'll be spending a lot more for other carriers.

Thank you Craig - I have heard Verizon has great coverage. We have decent coverage on AT&T from our place and into BBL. T-Mobile has an (relatively) attractive pricing plan vs. AT&T and Verizon.

ND, I have only had Verizon which works great up here. I have heard of some pretty spotty coverage with both AT&T and Tmobile.

Does anyone use T-Mobile up here? I live off Irving Way near Paradise and am considering switching from AT&T, but I've heard negative things about the reception of T-Mobile.
