The easiest way I found it to straddle the rock on the right and just before your rear wheels come down crank it hard left

HMMM...... That looks promising. Just don't know if I have the clearance for it. Next time I try I'll give it a shot.

We I went over it I was following this guy, who made it look easy for some reason:







Looking back it looks like he stayed to the left and ran his tire in the notch on the left.

Can't, have my grandfather's memorial service that morning. Otherwise, I'd love to. It'd give me a chance to do more GPS mapping.

Speaking of Rhino L, where is it again. Your photos from there looked cool but I'm not sure I've run the trail yet. Just trying to get everything mapped out.

Freedom5 can correct me if Im wrong...but here's my crappy directions
Past the main staging area the first left is a wide gravel road (to 3 step?)Keep going on paved road on the 2nd smaller gravel road take the left, and I think its the first trail on the left that starts on a corner.

Have a winch and or lockers, its pretty slimy with little to no traction at the top of the hill climb. On our trip 3 rigs had to winch, only 1 was open front and rear.(I made it though )

Local Flooding issues

Kitsap County

The day before there was approx. 8-10 inches of snow in the upper hills. Over night it warmed up 20 degress and melted, as well as dumped 7-8 inches of rain in the middle of the night. It rained all day and this was the aftermath mid next day. Silverdale located at the bottom of the foothills collected alot of run off as its situated near the Pudget Sound (Dyes Inlet). Many of the local salmon creeks overflowed as did local sewer drains.


I jumped the Suburban and my sister road shotgun to caputure some of the chaos in town.

SOL



Preferred method of travel



The exit I take when I get off of work, the hill on the left gave way and mud spilled all accross the ramp


Run-off from the exit ramp



Bowling Alley flooded

My family's fave Mexican Restaurant


Another angle



The driveway for the local FD was flooded in
