Original plan was to get a sled bump… Plans changed. Classic Toyota rally Up the jeep road from west side of “The Buttes” We hit the snow and skinned to the lookout. This would be a bad ass hut. To bad its locked? It needed a hot box Nice views From here traverse the south side and boot up and over We rode down till the snow ended, picked up a trail down to the road From the bottom The one in the middle “notch off the top” Off to Lassen April 10, 2016 at 5:16 pm #791170 aksltxlt 621 Posts Snobro met up with me at Lassen.

Ive been there a few times (mostly in my early 20’s) and have always enjoyed myself there. Good people and fun snowboarding. I never rode off the top, that is until April 14th We got it in powder conditions! Unreal, No wind, around 12-14 of B- pow on the headwall. Sno bro rides off the summit ridge Throughout the trip Dr Peppers has had to chill in the truck while I have hiked for the goods. Back in her day, she got after it regularly. I felt bad, and you know sometimes ya gotta throw a dog a bone. Peppers bags her first Volcano Mt Helens is fun, not very steep, but the gullys are shredable with fun features everywhere. Yea dog!

Tonight booze, live music, and shitty pick up lines are going down April 25, 2016 at 10:35 am #791535 aksltxlt 621 Posts Cool Venue, What the showbox looks like inside after too many drinks My Buddy lives in Downtown Seattle, super fun area, good people watching, the urban cyclist all have a death wish… so many close calls. But the sk8park is fun Me, feeble on “the wave” The Seattle sk8ters were super cool, mellow attitudes, Local ripper f/s rock Im off to Port Angeles, gonna try and split hurricane ridge… Then ferry to Vancouver Island April 26, 2016 at 4:56 pm #791566 powderjunkie 1669 Posts diggin’ it, esp. all the skate park pics. dude, if you thought the ladies were hot in Seattle, just wait until Vancouver Island. April 27, 2016 at 10:18 pm #791606 aksltxlt 621 Posts Hurricane ridge! The road was closed, lol but this is washington! There is a bad ass sk8park on the way up the pass. Port Angeles. My b/s air One of the best parks I have ever been to. Too bad the locals were a strange group. Scooter kid gangs lol. And every kid of age appeared to be on meth or some hard drug. Oh well. Time to get on the boat and sail off to the land of milk and hot hunny’s May 9, 2016 at 2:31 pm #791772 aksltxlt 621 Posts Beach time with the dog, before the boat ride So I took the ferry from port Angeles to Vancouver island, then I got to customs!! They totally searched my shit. Had me pop up the camper, and stand aside. I stood by as they ransacked my vehicle. The questions, do you smoke weed? Do you have any guns? Concealed carry? They asked me over and over about guns lol. I denied everything! Funny thing is, I have an ammo box in my truck that I store tire chains in. Silly Canuks, they never even opened the box? Now I’v dealt with cops in the states, but never have I encountered law enforcement as polite and nice as the BC customs officers. Once they were finished, they thanked me, and away I went Now, being so far North, the access has been difficult for me in BC. The forests are so thick! And Im clueless on where to go? But, I like that.. Its totally unknown to me, new,. I like trying to troubleshoot the up. Mt Washington May 11, 2016 at 12:16 pm #791800 aksltxlt 621 Posts I drove the length of Vancouver island and hopped on the ferry to prince rupert. The ferry ride was awesome! Beautiful, and on the smoking deck? people were burning like it was going out of style. It was a fun boat ride. Went to Terrace BC, checked out Shames resort, not much snow lol, I ran into some local hikers, they asked me “where are you going” I replied “to the snow line” we hiked and shot the shit, they were cool. When we reached the snow they asked me “do you drink”? Fuck yea, They were prepared… my kind of people I drove the cassiar highway. It is a bad ass drive. Slow going, big mountains and huge potholes Totem Your in the jungle now Easy free camping Some poor soul, middle of the cassiar highway I have had some hiccups along the way, Turning around on a 4×4 road I bent my anchor point for my tiedown, Truck and camper were fine, Im just gonna roll with it Latch failure, Good thing I had the Spark r@d BC kit!
