It was directly off a main road and about 100 yrds long of slippery FUN

Not sure, I guess we will find out this Wednesday. The only hill near Hogsback that I recall is the blue section of 7-up. It has a nice little hill climb on the backside. I haven't had the courage to go up the black section yet.

See ya fellas-

That is a good route !

Interestingly Sunday's hill climb on University Firepower was more difficult (hence FUN) compared to Archer's "Hill of Doom" and Firebreak 5.

Update for Wednesday

Hey fellow Jeepers, looks like we are still on for this Wednesday. I plan on basically doing the same route we just did last Sunday. I think we will be okay, that morning we will double check what trails/level of difficulty we want to do. Of course we can increase or decrease the trail difficulty as the day goes by and weather permitting.
We will have to be careful driving around TSF, there is active logging in many areas so we will have to watch out for trucks, equipment, and people.
Aside from that, get ready to get dirty!

Did the snap ring come out on the Johnny Joint? If so, file a claim on the warranty - I just went through that process with Rokmen, and they had Currie send me a new control arm end. You'll have to let them know which end, left or right hand.

Currie had a bad batch (caused by the milling/groove process where the snap ring groove had a rounded lip) out sometime last year.

That sucks, at least those parts are easily replaced (ball joints and rod ends), or rebuilt (j-joints). The only bummer is the wrench time or wrenching in your driveway while knowing people are out there playing. Kind of like having to mow the yard and do chores when you were a kid while your friends were out playing and having a good time.

Hope to see you Wednesday scooby!

Hmmmm, that's a good question. I plan on meeting in the morning at 8AM-815AM at the Chevron gas station at North Plains, just west of Hillsboro. (US 26 West to Exit 57, turn right and go north, and it's immediately on your left hand side next to the McDonalds.). There I will take a head count and see what trails people want to do and have a sign in sheet for safety. By 830AM sharp, I will be hitting the road and going to TSF. Meeting all at once makes it easier to stay in a group, also if we have to break up into smaller groups, we can decide there.
If you are going to be at the Gales Creek Shell Station, we can radio ahead via CB so you can see us coming, but I don't really want to be stopping there or other places. I'd say about 9ish if we leave the Chevron at 830AM. As the date gets closer, I'll be posting the CB channel and see how many people are coming, etc.

Hope this helps

Sweet!

Looks like I probably won't be going it alone on that day!

With all the sunshine, I honestly can't wait until the 26th, but then again, around here the weather can certainly change on short notice. Either way, I am sure we will have fun fun fun!

R51 Count me in as a strong maybe. I actually have to work late that afternoon, but I could probably stay till noon or so. I'm also trying really hard to have my lift done by then.
I will know better in a few weeks but I will plan to be there.
