Sunday 18th

Stuck at home all day Saturday getting Fios hooked up. Yeah, I'm poor, but this is actually cheaper then what I'm paying now. I'd cancel everything, but just can't stay away from you guys.

Anyway,

Leaving: Starbucks in Kirkland at 9:30 sharp street view
Traveling through Monroe at 9:50?
Where to: Infamous Ben Howard Rd. and any accessible logging roads out that ways. If we can't find any then continuing on to Sasquatch trial.



**lol....this is my new non-committal me

It has been confirmed that there is a gate at the end. Sometimes open, sometimes closed. Sometimes horses, sometimes not.

Why?

Are you so retarded you can't change your own oil or sprockets/chain?

Or is this an ECC type tech day...cuz that's totally a different story.

ecc type tech day....show up...bring everything you neeed to do your own stuff in a backpack.....for oiling/adjusting chains and changing oil you should only need a couple tools and the oil and filter and your choice of chain lube.

then ride.

if you don't change your chain and your sprocket at the same time, you will have to post a thread about how james13trillion is always right.

If the sv is allergic to dirt, probably wouldn't bother then. If BH rd. wasn't crap, I'd say shop up just for that. Then, assuming the gate is open, you would have a few slow miles in the gravel before you reached the river to fish.

Could always just hit hoko pit if it's still there. Or go back up Hwy 2 to the bridge and fish off the beach there.

No. Google doesn't really show a gate, was told one is there. Just don't exactly know where there is.

But the gate is on ben howard if you continue on instead or turning to sultan (is that the town at the end of ben howard?)

Man... I really need to go out there more...

Ben Howard turns into 164th then you can either turn left on Mann Rd to go over the bridge into Sultan, or continue on forward onto Mann Rd. The gate used to be somewhere along Mann RD. From the map I think I would first check out the end then turn back and look for the other turn off that heads up to the lakes.

Yes you are right also, BH just turns into another road and then at the end of that one is where the gate is supposed to be.

*how many posts can inspector do in a row?

looks to me like the gate would be where 363rd meets mann road nearish gold bar as that's where the houses seem to stop....

or even right before that......

from where it butts up against ben howard is 6 miles....

maybe I'll ride ben howard and then ride bitch on yard sale's tard to the end.....

yeah....that sounds awesome.
