    i think that would cost much more than paying my share for gas, but thanks for the offer 🙂

    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.

    Next year lets be sure this event dose not get scheduled for the same weekend of my wifes birthday. I would be down otherwise. 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?

    How about us NW riders put on our own little get together? Of course anyone would be invited.

    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?

    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.

    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?

    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 😀 😉

    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

    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.

    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:

    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, “Those are all deeper now.â€Â
