If you haven't consider throwing the video on youtube and posting link on the local portland reddit. Yes, I will work on that. Meanwhile, here's a small explosive preview... https://photos.app.goo.gl/YXrdFgWGxPu01W6r1 I'm editing this post to add yet another more important video found here... https...

Re: Eagle Creek Trail (Gorge) Closed by Fire (July 5)

do you think you've had any roll in the '2 to tango' of either of your neighbor's wacky behaviors? Good question. It goes back to the ice storm of 2012 when all the damage occurred on Wind Mountain. There was massive damage to Wind Mountain and the trail needed much work. So I went to gather the ne...

Re: Eagle Creek Trail (Gorge) Closed by Fire (July 5)

windmntpete, i'm with you on the outrage (mine for MSHI).. but what's with the semi-secrecy. Is your neighbor extremely wealthy? A benefactor of local politics? Or a local politician themselves? Or work in a public capacity that gives them lots of power? Who's your neighbor, are you at risk to name...

Re: Eagle Creek Trail (Gorge) Closed by Fire (July 5)

I have no doubt the kid meant to start a fire. I was sure too..... until I considered this particular situation. This kid did this stupid act in front of strangers standing just a few feet away. Why would anyone who wants to start a fire do it with witnesses around? Wouldn't he and his friends find...

Re: Eagle Creek Trail (Gorge) Closed by Fire (July 5)

Try Willamette Week. I always enjoy seeing a WMP rant. I'm a bit on the anti-authority side myself, and nice to know I'm not alone. Perhaps anti-bigotry would be a more accurate term, eh? You can blame my old school teachings, I was raised with a common theme..... my teachers in high school were al...

Re: Eagle Creek Trail (Gorge) Closed by Fire (July 5)

Of course the MOST ironic part of this whole situation is that I have reported these large fireworks by my neighbor on Wind Mountain (who is old enough to know better) for years and have sought help from the sheriff, Forest Service, Friends of the Gorge with no response what so ever. Have you sough...
