    I’m getting closer to exploring some OHV (off-highway vehicle) areas. I just got my Mendocino National Forest Atlas. I haven’t printed out the Motor Vehicle Use Map because when I went looking for the 26″ wide continuous roll printer at work I couldn’t find it. Helluva thing to go missing, no?
    The Econoline carried 1000 pounds of hardwood flooring 175 miles up the Pacific Coast Highway without overheating, so transport is go.
    The Honda won’t be delivered ’till late December, so the DRZ is still doing commuter duty. Not too hard to convert to dirt use, but inconvenient if I wad it up on a trail somewhere.

      Also, everything on maps 34 through 45 burned up earlier this year. Roughly two New York Citys.

        Wow, the amount of vegetation lost is difficult to grasp. Are these areas accessible to the public nonetheless? Are buildings, villages etc being rebuilt or will people relocate?

          Everything inside the burn area is closed until the end of the year. This map shows the current fires and the burn zones of fires in the past (I think up to a year old?)

      Is there anything a drunken Scandinavian won’t try? I seem to recall a story about Finnish Formula One World Champion Kimi Räikkönen (accent marks courtesy of Wikipedia). Being an expensive piece of property, Ferrari put a clause in his contract forbidding him from participating in any dangerous sports during the off-season. This was only sensible since so many drivers have been injured up to Robert Kubica losing most of his arm when his rally car crashed, and Michael Schumacher having a tragic skiing accident from which he has never recovered.
      However, this did not sit well with Kimi, who although pretty quiet, likes to party like a Viking. There was quite a scandal and a fierce argument with his team management around Kimi’s denial that he was the guy in a full-body bear costume, waterskiing while holding a beer in one hand.

        Wasn’t there a driver officially injured playing tennis, and a comment from someone “I didn’t know tennis was played on quad bikes”?

          It was Juan Pablo Montoya, but I can’t find if he ever publicly accepted it was not tennis, it seems he still maintains it was

      That looks like a couple million dollars worth of cars at todays prices.

    How do you showcase your excellent condition 1967 Moskovich 408? You drive it halfway up a stair, of course:
    Prices for Volga 24’s are rising 20-50% every year. I should have pulled the trigger earlier…

      How else does a Russian get home if he lives in the middle of the Steppes?
