My dad and I headed up today and opened the road to Waldorf. The 40 is running great after fixing the idle circuit on the carb.

It looks like Travis aka Shotshell was the one who made the tracks we were following! I just saw the thread you were up there yesterday :)

Put us down for 20 hours (9am-7pm each). Not much trash but we picked up every piece we saw along the trail. Ended up with a full Trasharoo but some of it was big stuff like the skid plate off the Toyota that said we couldn't go any further ;)

The river was the highest we have seen and, because we were solo, decided not to risk the crossing. Before the channel, the water was already over the bumper. That would put it about halfway up the doors with the distributor on the uphill side facing the torrent.

Yeah that water level was a little sketchy. It may still be an issue this next weekend. We'll see.
After having at least two rigs go through those drifts now, we should be able to get everyone through no problem.
I forgot to mention in the other thread. I came across a camp fire that was still burning on the lower road by the first water crossing. That kind of blew my mind. Of course it was pouring down rain at the moment, so that helped. But I took care of it with several handfuls of snow. I can't believe someone would just leave a fire burning like that.
Anyways, glad you guys had fun up there. That's a good looking 40.:thumb:
