Default Fs1708

We ran the old FS1708 down from Wood Pecker. The sink holes got even deeper this year. We could not make it out the second hole down.


The short cut tire ruts are too deep for smaller tires too. We need to get authorization to do a work party to knock in the sides down to make FS1708 passable.

How about we harden the rut bottoms with rip/rap rock from the rock fields above there. I am sure Sam would go for it. I may have a tractor and opperator up that way Sunday. We will also have the FS dump trailer. I'll see want shakes out. We also have some holes to fill on the Kaner.

I was told that area was owner by a logging company.

Quite likely. Will find out. We have had a good relationship with Plum Creek.

Jim we will be hauling rock up to where that big mud mess was / is on the Kaner. That's the section we bypassed (via roads) last year. The Shindig Wheelers were in there last weekend and built a bridge over the mudhole. Well, there is still a couple of holes we need to fill up there. Then if time allows we can maybe swing over to the FS1708 and harden the bottoms of the ruts that Ceg mentions. We do have use of the FS dump trailer, but more would be better. Also I have not talked to Dave B. Of Naches Land Manage fame but he may be in there this weekend and I know of some holes that need work via Bob of FS fame. So we may be very busy. I just meant to say bring your trailer.

Please explain to me why you just can't leave a hole? It's an obstacle right? Why build a bridge? Natural ocuring mud holes are, well natural challenges to the off roader...

I'm not questioning fixing damage to closed areas, just holes on the trail!
