Looks great man! The shop you have access to looks like it would make things easy.

Yeah, the shop helps out a lot. If only it were at my house, then I'd really be livin large. If you ever are in need of wood, let me know. We have lots of scraps that are basically free for the taking. Mostly 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" finished plywood. Random sizes, they're all off cuts from our shop work that we either accumulate too quickly to re-use or are too small/weird shaped to be useful.

I'm in greenlake... on the southern end, 61st and Latona. You're nearby, right?

Headed up to the Mt. Baker area this past weekend. The northern cascades are quickly becoming one of my favorite areas in the region. Hiked Heliotrope ridge & up to Artist's Point on Saturday, both were beautiful. The FS road up to the Heliotrope ridge trailhead was one of the sketchiest I've been on in a while - since that area hasn't had prolonged snow yet and temps must have been above freezing during the day and below freezing at night last week, there were long portions that were entirely covered in black ice (the fact that it's paved most of the way doesn't help). We pulled off part way up Friday night and spent the night after getting stuck and having to precariously put on chains part way up an icy hill. Made it all the way up to the trailhead with no issues in the morning, but the icy decent was gnarly. Held it in first gear to keep the wheels turning as slowly as possible but still had a few instances of complete loss of traction. I'm amazed that as many cars were on that road as there were. No 4WD will get you out of a slide in that icy of conditions and with a ditch on one side and decent 5-10ft drop on the other, there wasn't an easy way out if you really lost control.

Outside of that road, all the others were completely passable with either no snow or enough snow to not be icy. Definitely looking forward to getting the knockoff chinese diesel heater installed & running within the next few weeks... it was cold.

The icy road (side note - does anybody know how to change the orientation of photos on this forum...)

Yeah, I'm N 138th and Greenwood. The weekend trip looks nice. We haven't taken our van out for a few months. Busy with house stuff and work. I need to change that.

For photos: all the landscape ones will post fine. If you have portrait-style from your iPhone, etc. just take it to Edit on your phone first and change the size even the slightest. Then post, itíll come out right side up.

Yeahhh I know that feeling. Fortunately it's only the GF and I and we rent, so some of those weekly responsibilities aren't there and we're able to get out pretty regularly.

Thanks otter - seems strange, but I'll have to try that next time.
