Re: Bayocean Spit 2-1-23

yeah, I have looked for places to camp on beach in Oregon. That is, well above high tide next to beach.

In Washington there are many places in Olympic National Park where you can camp on or next to beach.

Re: Bayocean Spit 2-1-23

It's in Sullivan's book that camping is allowed Maybe, there's no camping at the trailhead but it's okay if you hike over to the beach You can walk north on the beach and camp along there, but water might be scarce. You can easily walk as far as the New River. That might be drinkable, but it might h...

Re: Bayocean Spit 2-1-23

North of Cape Blanco is a good beach access point to camp on beach. I've only checked out the trailhead next to that airport. I keep meaning to do that sometime.

Re: USFS oppression marches on with proposed high-Hood permit

uh oh, Water is riled up :) I agree with you but no reason to attack Jesse. I appreciate other people's opinions. A year ago I passed someone between Middle and South Sister, who recognized me from here. He expressed the same opinion - he liked the reduced crowds personally, and said that he was abl...

Rogue River 1/24/2023

I spent a few days walking down the Rogue River from Graves Creek. The road from Merlin and Galice is blocked, so you have to go from Wolf Creek. There is a road block right at the Graves Creek bridge preventing you from driving onto the bridge, but you can get to the trailhead fine. I'm guessing th...

Re: USFS oppression marches on with proposed high-Hood permit

"I am not a rich person by any means but I have never found it to be a hardship to buy a $30 dollar a year trail park pass."

funny how people over react to small fees but not so much for more major problems

Re: USFS oppression marches on with proposed high-Hood permit

which makes no sense

it's like they've decided to do the restrictions, now they're just coming up with rhetorical arguments to support their position

Just like the internet in general - often just arguing without trying to understand problems and solutions

Re: USFS oppression marches on with proposed high-Hood permit

yeah! I have no problem with restrictions to support wildlife like closing Cape Horn when there are birds nesting But these restrictions just seem to be for aesthetics - FS people feel like there are too many people for a wilderness so they restrict use If people want to go where it's crowded, fine,...
