And lots of shitty music February 28, 2006 at 8:44 pm #587124 jack 323 Posts i think that would cost much more than paying my share for gas, but thanks for the offer 🙂 March 1, 2006 at 8:40 am #587125 refried 93 Posts I’ve been thinking of going, but can’t make any definite plans. Waiting for my new gas pumps to be installed, and can’t get anyone to commit and say “we’ll do it on ……”, and I may have to fire my help, witch would suck, and mean I’m definitely not going.

We gotta have some peeps representing the NW…..Jack did you try nomad yet? He seems to be killing it everywhere this side of the mississippi?

The first weekend the road opens? March 1, 2006 at 10:42 pm #587129 Tophervw 203 Posts WA Pass get together sounds good to me. I have no experience in that area…but I’m up for it. When is this historical opening of that pass…may?june? March 2, 2006 at 1:39 am #587130 bcboarderwa 38 Posts It depends on the snowpack. I think last year it opened in late march due to the low snow, but we got some dumps in april and it closed again until later that month. I’d guess it would be late april/early may most years. The DOT posts a projected opening date later in the spring. March 2, 2006 at 7:19 am #587131 refried 93 Posts Heard there will be a late opening this year because of the large amount of snow we had this year. I think a NW splitfest is a great idea, I might even be able to take more than 2 days of at a time if I can find a new employee. anyone want a job pumping gas? March 2, 2006 at 7:53 am #587132 jack 323 Posts yeah, i am in the process of trying to talk nomad into giving me a ride 😉 there has to be someone from WA going down? a WA splitfest sounds good to me, it looks like there are more here from WA than any other state. and topher–just go and bring the wife 😀 😉 March 2, 2006 at 7:53 am #587133 jack 323 Posts (doulbe post) March 2, 2006 at 3:53 pm #587134 Tophervw 203 Posts Jack~ Dont think that would Fly, She is not really a big fan of snow, and cold. What gives Eh? I figure if I get one season (summer backpacking) of outdoor sports I’m doing better than most guys.. 😀 March 2, 2006 at 10:16 pm #587135 Jon Dahl 384 Posts Jack, it might be a little cramped riding w/me in my little car, but I could modify my plans a little and take you with. If you wanna check out the available space, I’ll stop by and let you look after work ’cause I’m in the same town as you during the day. Call me, I’ll pm you my work phone # Jon March 4, 2006 at 4:23 am #587136 jack 323 Posts thanks john (check pm’s) no other WA folks though? i would be happy to help drive if you let me 😀 March 6, 2006 at 10:18 pm #587137 ultragrrl 10 Posts I think a get together would be a neato idea. I however, think we might want to choose a more concrete weekend so that if peeps are going to come from ID,WA (not west coast), OR etc that perhaps they can plan for it. Also, so that local peeps can make room in their schedules. *zoom* March 14, 2006 at 2:47 am #587138 jack 323 Posts *bump* anyone? still looking for a ride… March 14, 2006 at 4:46 pm #587139 jcocci 699 Posts Latest report I saw was they would start at it in late March, but if we keep getting al this snow, who knows. Would love to head up there when it opens though. March 14, 2006 at 5:58 pm #587140 Tophervw 203 Posts As of yesterday….here is the current hwy20 info Spring Reopening On Schedule for The North Cascades Highway Date: Monday, March 13, 2006 Contact: WSDOT NC Region Communications Manager Jeff Adamson (509) 667-2815 E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org WENATCHEE – The reopening of SR 20, The North Cascades Highway, will get underway the week of March 20th. For the second time in three weeks, WSDOT North Central Region Avalanche Control technicians evaluated the snow conditions on snowmobiles today. They found deeper snow accumulations from the recent storms and many of the avalanche chutes have still not released their snow loads. That must happen before it’s safe for crews to begin clearing the highway under them. Snow depth at the east closure gate was 5-1/2 feet. Above that point, it was about 7-feet. At the top of Washington Pass, the snow is 7-1/2 feet deep. The deepest accumulation on February 22nd was just east of Washington Pass beneath the Liberty Bell Number Three avalanche chute where snow 45-feet deep covered the highway. At the same time, depths of 20-feet were found further east below Cutthroat Ridge. Avalanche Control Technician Mike Stanford says, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Those are all deeper now.Ã¢â‚¬Â March 16, 2006 at 2:55 pm #587141 bcrider 4149 Posts so Jack, are you coming with Jon? 🙂 Viewing 20 posts - 1 through 20 (of 23 total) 1 2 → You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
