Weekender in the Mt Hood National Forest

We did a short weekender into the Mt Hood Forest over the 'summer' solstice with a LOT of snow still on the mtn. Some of our favorite remote camping spots that lie on or around wilderness area boundaries were still inaccessible due to snow. But the mtn was a glorious site as always.

Ironically, we came across a pair of SMB's, climbers heading back into the Barlow District along Road 44. We stopped to chat briefly and I talked up the Forum. The guy said he'd been here and Yahoo too, and being as we werent too far from the Gorge I said..."Hey wait, Deminimis, is that you?". The guy sort of looked puzzled and probably wondered what I was talking about. Besides, I think Deminimis's EB is Silver and this was one of those light metallic green rigs, his buddy a white RB. It occurred to me we should have Forum cards made up to exchange in these situations, think its been discussed before but cant recall what happened to the logos someone had done.

later that evening, from the poptop near the Mark O Hatfield Wilderness. If anyone is looking for a CB antennea mounting option that doesnt involve drilling the roof, here's how I did mine...



and then sunset from this same location....

Sure, the CB mount is OK... now that Smokey the Bear antenna ball is cool!

Looks like you found a beautiful spot. We still haven't made it down that far in the van -- did see Hood on the trip home -- but looks like we should. I haven't spent enough time in Oregon in general.

We've still got a fair bit of snow in the mountains up here too. So much for it being summer.

yeah not only that but we got it from SMOKEY himself, at his 60th birthday celebration a few years ago. We like Smokey, he hugged me. We're careful with matches because of him.

Don't you guys EVER let Smokey Bear hear you calling him Smokey THE bear. I understand that really gets his knickers in a twist!

You tell 'em Bill, I'm soooo pissed I can't. Smokey does NOT have a middle name and even if he did, it wouldn't be "The"

Nope, wasn't me BC, but I'm often up there. Did this guy have a Baja rear license plate in the rear door license plate location (something similar to an air brushed image...perhaps a windsurfer)? If so, that's the SMB we tracked down in Hood River so my wife could see the inside of one (needed her "ok" before I went out and bought one, sort of).
