Re: welcome to tick season 2019

to remove ticks first i smear petroleum jelly on them. then a little peanut butter. I've also heard bleach works so at times I've sprayed that in addition to the above. Finally a quick splash of gasoline I'm told is something they really really hate, so then I put a freshly it match head right to it...

Re: NW Forest Pass and Missing Amenities

The thing is that when the Forest Service does surveys of facility users, paying for toilet facilities always comes out on top. Maybe you were saying it but, a survey of facility users hardly seems representative of people at trailheads. People don't drive out to trailheads to use a toilet, do they...

Re: Visit the Central Cascades while you still can...

Keith, I almost reached out to you when I was going through the objections in the 'reading room' a while ago. As I've spoken to a few people, I can't believe the degree of research, critical and comparative analysis, and overall reading, on a 'moving target' so to speak, is required to fully engage ...

Re: perfect hiking temperature

sorry to hear that drm--hope it was one of the more benign ones that are more common and just happen with aging.. My father had a few of those on his face that he had to get taken care of when he was in his early to mid-60's. He's lucky as he had an area of malignant melanoma on his upper back about...

Re: Parkdale Fire Station

I'm going to bring in association with the Hood River Crag Rats. There's probably some affiliation there, you have to live in the Hood River Valley to be part of them and they're somewhat exclusive I hear.

Re: Am I an insensitive jerk, or is the USFS wound a bit tight?

it was me who mused that you surely didn't think parking too close to a gate was a criminal act. I hardly think of a non-moving vehicle citation as a criminal act. Whether it is parking in equestrian area or not. In the way everyone I know uses the English language, never have I heard people who got...

Re: Am I an insensitive jerk, or is the USFS wound a bit tight?

Interesting censorship going on here at OregonHikers, I guess you can't point out when a crime has been committed, but you can use this website for sympathy when you do disregard the regulations. PS: I'm certain this post will be censored away too. as someone who loves to rabble rouse, you've reall...

Re: Am I an insensitive jerk, or is the USFS wound a bit tight?

All of the above Chip! :lol: Just kidding. As long as the gate could open and traffic wasn't being impeded, I think the FS is looking for something to do.. They're so understaffed and over-stretched you know. It's like the absolutely asinine amount of "No Parking" signs for miles around Lower Lewis ...
