Mt. Hood Meadows is inaccessible - Hwy 35 wiped out!

Well, what a pisser. After dropping $400 for the 4x4 season pass to Meadows we might not get to ski at all. No matter what the snow is like.

Highway 35 has been wiped out by mudslides.
(I am not sure how long that page will be current, so just in case here is a screenshot of the page...)

There are a few pictures of the damage here.

Oh well. It is not like I needed that $400 anyway...

Maybe I get to test my Jeep's off-roading capabilities now. :) That Mt. Hood Fusion Pass - in hindsight - looks pretty good right about now...

Yeah, my Fusion Pass looks like a much better choice this week compared to last week. I was contemplating the 4x4 up to the last minute, but just couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger. Now I'm sure glad I stuck with the Fusion. I do hope that they get a road to Meadows open, though - T-line & Skibowl will be crammed if they don't.

The Luxeon LED is really not bright enough like what you say. It also preduce too much heat. Do you know that? I think if you put more LEDs for your custom design LED brake tail light, your brake tail light should be brighter. However you will have to deal with heat that will ruin the LED s later. I just put new LED brake tail lights for my car. It is awesome with the quality of LEDs. I got it from http://www.lunaraccents.com/nav-custom-LED-lighting-applications.html
I wish I had some pictures to show you today. Keep up with finding the right LED bake tail light for your bike. I will bake to see it when you find the right one!!

Wolf River Greenway - my thoughts

Out in east Memphis and northwest Germantown they have some greenway bike+ped paths along the Wolf River, called the Wolf River Greenway.  It is pretty nice, and I have ridden my bicycle along it's entirety.  It is still somewhat in two main sections, the Memphis section in the west and the Germantown section in the east.   The ultimate plans are to have them all linked together and connected to some other areas as well, although those plans seem like they might be a while to completion (if ever).


My thoughts on the Wolf River Greenway are mixed.

Travato

We had been looking at RVs for a long time, focusing mostly on class B versions.  Class B RVs are on van chassis and stay within the van footprint, as a result the Class B RVs are very manageable compared to their larger siblings.  Most Class B can be driven in cities, parked in normal spots, and genarraly fit into tighter situations than you would ever consider for a much larger Class A or Class C (when most people think of RVs they are usually envisioning Class A or C).
We decided on a 2017 Winnebago Travato.  We chose the 59g floorplan and waited for the 2017 1/2 models to come out with their few nice mid-year improvements.

Memphis corrugated recycling failure

All right, maybe not a "failure"  - more like a deficiency.  However sensationalist headlines draw in more readers, and since you may be my only one - I need all the help I can get.

Memphis seems to have OK recycling programs for a city in this region, although still not that great in general.  One thing that I found frustrating is the requirement to cut down corrugated.
