#1: Oregon Spodes?

Posted on 2006-07-23 13:28:52 by CrashTestDummy

It appears that the family and I may eventually move back to
Oregon. Probably not anytime soon, but maybe in a year or so. I'd
really prefer eastern Oregon or Idaho, but it looks like we'll have to
settle for the rainy Portland/Estacada/Oregon City area. But at least
we'd be *closer* to eastern Oregon and Idaho :-)

So I know Tim Harrell lives somewhere across the border in
Washington there, Joe (Momma) lives in Mollala, Tony (ThumperTDC)
lives in Portland... though I haven't seen him posting lately, Tom
Potter's out in Canby and then Doug (MXOldTimer) and Rick (roost4u)
are also somewhere in the state. Oh, and Craig (Brokein2) is in Oregon
also, right?

Out east you have John Davies in Spokane, and DJ and Murray in
Boise.

Who else am I missing?

You'll meet Ben at the spodefest. He lives here too but is not an RMD'er.
Also Pete will be there. He is an older dude that really knows the trails
around here.

Let us know when you get here and we'll show you all the hot spots. Fishing
and golfing are great here too.

Kewl.

Yeah, having lived there the majority of my life I know what you
mean. But many of the areas we used to ride have disappeared, so it'll
be nice to learn the kewl new spots.

We rode at Colton, Brown's Camp, Rainier Beach, Sand Lake, that
goofy little place by the mouth of the Sandy River, some woods around
La Pine, some woods near Larch Mountain, the Wallowa-Whitman NF in
Eastern Oregon and White Salmon, Washington.

I know several of thoese areas are closed down now. But Brown's
Camp and/or this McCubbins Gulch place I've heard of should be good
places. The only track I've ever been to is Washougal (1993 AMA
Nationals) as a spectator. The Mountain View track looks awesome, but
I hate being limited to small, specific open practice times.

Colton was my favorite (circa '79) because of it's proximity to Oregon
City where we lived at the time. Unbelievably, here are the places
I've lived in Oregon:

Klamath Falls
Chiloquin
Portland
Canby
Gladstone
Redland
Oregon City
Clackamas
Medical Springs/Baker

And I've been pretty much everywhere in the state at one time or
another -- from Astoria to Burns, Milton-Freewater to La Pine, Ontario
to Newport, Hood River to John Day. In fact, I've been back and forth
through the Gorge about a zillion times (don't drink the water in
Boardman). My favorite golf course was the one in Boring (nice
elevation changes), and in '93 or '94 we spectated the Fred Meyer
Challenge in West Linn. My step-father was an AVID fisherman, so I was
drug around to places like the south jetty in Newport (flounder),
lilly pad lakes in Canby (small mouth bass), up and down the
Willamette River (salmon/steelhead), countless mountain streams
(rainbow trout/perch), to the Snake River (channel cat) and the
Columbia and Oregon coast (Sturgeon). As a result, I pretty much hate
fishing now. ;-&gt;

Browns camp is not on the list of favorites. It's fairly crowded and you get
a lot of the kwad gang. Really rutty too. You go further down the mountain
and that's where the good stuff is. Jordan creek area.

Mountain View is the only track around that I know of that has a 35-35
practice. On Saturday and Sunday you reserve a spot. They limit the number
of riders on the track to 35 (which it can easily handle) and you pay 35
bucks for all day. Ride on and off the track whenever you like. No flaggers.
Some watering. Great place to ride. Really fun track. My favorite in the
area.

Washougal has open practices about once a month. You do have to run motos
but I think it's worth it to ride on a national track. That ski jump is
hella fun.

Thirty-five bucks seems steep, but it sounds like a nice track and
I'm sure I'd want to try it out at least once. Do you also have to
have an AMA card just to practice?

Dropping down out of the woods? Yeah, that looked very kewl when
Stanton, LaRocco and Henry were flying off of it. Isn't that right
before the big table top by the announcer's tower? The &quot;Chuck Sun&quot;
jump?

Thanks for the welcoming, Rick. I'll be sure to give a shout when
we get back up that way. In the meantime, I'll see ya in just over a
week, huh?
