If you read the first post in this thread it will give you directions. It's very easy to find off of I-5.

I'm out.

I have not racked up sufficient miles to break in the new gears yet, and driving just for the sake of rackin' up miles to break in the gears at $50.00+ per tank of gas didn't seem financially logical.

I didn't know you had to break in new gears with "normal" driving. Is that common practice?

Yes there is. Instead of retyping go to this link and you see why.

Did Frank have to give proof to his wife? You took a whole lot more than me this time! This run sucked again, I guess we'll have to try this again soon. Half of my picks are from the Onalaska run, and the last few are from the 20 miles os snow covered dirt road from Elbe Hills to Eatonville Sam and I did on the way home. I had to air-down to 10psi as we were breaking new ground. They have boulders across the road halfway thru and signs stating there's a washout. We didn't see a washout, but went around the boulders and made it thru. My fingers were crossed the whole time.
We just followed the cougar prints all the way.

These are on the way home-Elbe Hills to Eatonville
