I was expecting the Dough Boy. I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed.

Shawn, I went up Rice Fork (Split Rock) but the water was so high they must of set it up on the Eel fork....Thats what they did last year.
The Pics that I posted Yesterday on were from this last weekend. I didn't get to take as many pics as I would of liked. I had a boat full of Kids that kept Me busy.
I ride with Shawn E every week so I will tell Him You said hello.

i don't know if you remember back about a year and a half ago. grant posted some pics of a stereo under "monster stereos" and it had a box in the back with eight 12" subs and a tower box with 4 8" seperates in it, that is mine. but anyways, i know the barbiary's (sorry if their name is spelled wrong) and most of that crew. i knew them from when they used to have cabins across the lake. we all grew up at pillsbury.

Hey you guys...

Is Pillsbury off of HWY 20? I thought it was a few miles of dirt road to get up there? I haven't been up that way in years!!!
Old    walt            06-03-2004, 7:01 PM Reply   
Thats it. The (dirt road) road to butter is about 10 miles long.

Brandon, Thats a great profile pic ! Is that Bullards ?
Old    1kanaka            06-03-2004, 7:08 PM Reply   
Hey Walt, How is the (dirt) road? Is it washboarded? It get's pretty dusty I assume, so you tow your boat up with a cover right?

I'm thinking about camping up there this summer. Hense, all the questions.

Old    walt            06-03-2004, 7:12 PM Reply   
The county road is in really great shape right now But the logging road is NFG due to a slide.

When I take My boat I put the cover on and then a tarp over that with a bunch of bungy's...It seems to work really well. And yes it's really dusty like always.
Old    walt            06-03-2004, 7:13 PM Reply   
Let Me know when Your going and I can probably get a report on the road for You.
Old    1kanaka            06-03-2004, 7:15 PM Reply

Memorial,end of June,4th of July,first week of August,and Labor day.Used to be about 3 to 4 families with us.We always stayed at the coveted point.Best damn site up there.To bad we can't get it now.New owners are different,but more organized.Twice we had to argue with someone else over our campsite.
We've skipped about 2 years in a row,but started again last year with first week of August.Doing it again this year.

rich, those are the exact same weeks we would go, we must have crossed paths many of times. my family had a 95 sanger dxll, dark teal, closed bow, if that rings a bell. we quit going to lpr after my dad died in 99, but i started going back up there summer of 2002.

rich, a trip sounds great, but can a toyota owner hang out with you closed bow guys?
