Mike & Patti pulled the trailer into Rita's camp today. 

The road was dry and someone has taken a farm tractor in and smoothed off the swale where Jim & Rita got stuck. It is much better now.

Place looks great and the river is running high & fast as the upper area snow melts.

Mike & Patti took the Camp Trailer in 5/22/2011

Road was bear & dry. Camp was in great shape and the temp was running about 55 degrees. Great sunny day for us.

Road Scouting trip Monday  4/25/2011

Mike went over to scout out the road 4/25/2011. Found the West Fork road snowed in before our gate. Took a hike up the road and up the Wildlife trail and found patches of snow everywhere. Would be good riding if you could get into camp. In the Middle Fork the road into Indian Camp is also blocked by snow just off the end of the blacktop. The North Fork has been plowed up past the Guard Shack (Above Stafford Creek intersection)

Picked up Reta & Jim at their house and they rode with me to the memorial for Doris Wright.

It was at Sacred Heart Church in Enumclaw. Her ashes will be scattered in the Teanaway next summer as she requested. 

Jim McDermott is doing great and was under his own power for the whole trip.

(He did tell me after we got him home "That tired me out") 

Dena (sweetheart that she is) was at their house doing the chores when we got there.

Wednesday 12/1/2010

Jim McDermott had open heart surgery today. Reta left a message and says he is doing well.

Will keep updating this information as I get more.

Ho Ho Ho  Here is a picture of Santa (Bill Woeck). Notice he doesn't have much snow...lol...Judy

Mike & Patti spent the Memorial Day weekend in the Teanaway. It was a little wet but we had a great time and managed to clear & reflag some trail. Saw Turkey, Elk & Deer. The road was in pretty good shape and we didn't see many other people in there. We did burn some propane in the trailer furnace. <grin> Place looks great, Thanks Rita!!!

Mike pulled our camp trailer into Rita's property today.

Needed 4 wheel drive to get the trailer pulled in there because of the slimy road.

Road bed is not soft, just slimy on the top 2 inches.

Checked out Rita's in the Teanaway Wednesday 5/6/2009

Road in was fine with a little mud on the surface. Property looks fine.
