^ Thanks appreciate it! Ya we will definately have to go....I love snow so i should have a good time...
Unfortunately the Colville NF and much of the northern Idaho Panhandle trails are off limits (read that as closed) during the winter due to the amount of snow! Have to blame that on the USFS Travel Management Planning process! Anyway, with lots of feet of snow in the mountains, unless you have very high ground clearance, you would not get very far. We just enjoy it in late spring to early summer. By mid-summer, there is usually a fire ban in place and because these trails have less than 10 feet clear area on either side, we can not drive on them so our off-road time in the Colville and northern Idaho panhandle can be limited, but we do have a lot of good times while we can and the scenery/views from some of these trails is magnificent (check out my off-road trips Photobucket web pages here: http://s110.photobucket.com/albums/n...p575/Off-Road/
especially the 2006-08-19 Colville and the NITB Cabin Fever trail rides.
You wouldnt happen to know how good the fishing is...i figure its not far at all from canada.
Sorry, not into fishing, but be aware that starting this last June 1st, you must have either a Passport or an "enhanced driver's license" to enter and return from Canada. Fortunately WA state does issue enhanced driver's licenses!
Also how is the housing over there..I will be renting a house where would be a good neighborhood?
Since Fairchild AFB is on the far west side of Spokane, the nearest community/city is Airway Heights. There are a lot of apartments there - if you don't mind that type of housing. A lot of folks live on the south hill but that's a distance from Fairchild and the traffic on the south hill is autrocious - IMO! And I drive school bus so I have some knowledge of the Spokane traffic patterns - which are terrible in most parts of the city!
