Will half to pass on this one, truck repairs will be a little too new for me to be comfortable driving up there and back in the hills.
Not to mention the parts kind of knocked a hole in my budget.
Over the winter, I'll get my gear checked out to see what I have after the kids\grandkids been using it. Also need to get my CB installed.
Well, if this trip turns out okay, then Greg the Techie Guy from Adventure Books told me HE wants to come up there late spring when you can once again reach this spot. (When the snows melt) I have a feeling that this weekend is going to be the last or next to last time you can get there before snow comes. Altitude is about 4,000 there. No worries. Going well-prepared for this trip.

Side Note: Saw a video at YouTube. 'Ten Guns You Should Never Sell'. The SKS was on the list. Main reasons were cheap ammo, it's legal, it shoots the 7.62x 39mm round, which is no slouch. And it will fire under almost any conditions. Downside is you better keep that floating firing pin system clean or you can get occasional slam-fires. (Double shots) I don't leave it sitting around in the open while camping, because if anyone comes along they think you're a friggin' terrorist or something. It's embarrassing. (*laughs*) They are the semi-auto version of an AK, after all. SBJ was popping condensed milk cans twenty feet or more into the air. I told him, 'hit them near the bottom,' and he did the rest. Kid is a natural. I call him a 'kid' because he's way younger than me. My son Adam is older than he is.

I don't have my CB radio permanently mounted. I bought some Velcro from Fred Meyer. Put the hanging frame (mounting) on the radio. Installed some Velcro on the bottom of the frame, then some on top of the dashboard in the center. Then you power it to your cigarette lighter. Run the antenna wire down the center console area and out the back slider window. Antenna top center of truck roof. Reason for leaving the mounting frame on the radio is to keep the speaker off the dashboard, since it is on the bottom of the radio. By doing this, you can remove the radio and make it a camp base station in seconds. All you need is another battery. Don't forget to get your antenna matched to 1.2 or less on all channels. I have a meter for this, but you have to find a wide open spot somewhere to do it up right.

Will keep a lookout for a spring trip.

I connected the CB speaker output to the stock AM speaker in the dash when I had it mounted in my old Fords.
Impedance matched fine and it sounded great.

I don't have any of those fancy-schmanzy weapons, but that only means I'm old school...stuff like that Yugo is just fine.

UPDATE: Gear ready to go. Leaving at 4AM Saturday morning. If I can't reach the campsite at the dead end, I will set up camp on the same road prior to that spot.

However, seeing the current weather conditions, (good) I have no doubt I will make it to the site. Besides...'Lil' Nissan' hasn't failed yet to reach whatever place I point the wheel, whether it be central Oregon for the eclipse, or some Forest Service road. And after all the work and maintanance and testing I've done on the truck this month, I expect the same result.

A proper way to enter fall, in my humble opinion.

UPDATE: After actually going through holy hell reaching Trap Pass, (more than 40 Forest Service 'water bars' in the road on the way up) I am glad no one tried to show up. It was a beautiful place, but I think I will pick an EASIER spot to reach before inviting people to come along in the future.

A few pictures below. The fog picture was taken on the way DOWN.



Cabin shelter shown below. Brought small TV, stereo, DVD player, and plenty of lighting. Had to have something to do at night...
