    Let me check my schedule and see. Another issue may be the roads up there. From my understanding they're pretty crazy this time of year even with 4wd

    Not at all ... if they're icy ... that's a different story but a week ago they were just fine ... 4WD not needed on Kistler ... just slow and steady. Ruts and wash boarding was marginal since the last grading of the road. East side gets more shadow time in the winter so inside icy curves can be a problem but again ... see what the weather is like before you go.

    WARNING: Will discuss Rhurbarb Strawberry Pie and Livermush at random.

    If you post an inquiry on LG.net ... usually someone's been up lately and can give you a good heads up on the current conditions. Always happy to help.

    If my schedule is free one of those two weekends and you can get up to the general area we'll get it worked out. Anyone else possibly interested as well? Open call to all

    You're on! Friday night to Sunday morning (24-26)

    I've never been to the gorge, so just tell me where to meet.
