What Are Your Evacuation Plans?

2 comments

 

 

So, it's a "thing" now; Fire Season=Summer. We have to accept it for what it is, beyond pro-active preservation and deterrents. We've also experienced some pretty hairy thunder/lightning/flood systems recently... and snow is coming up on us.

 

So, that brings up a question for all: Do you have a "What If" or evacuation plan while out in the woods?

 

Let's here your ideas and input. Also, POST/share your stories/pics/videos of your craziest overlanding storms.

Comment from @jcadcars1492: This is a great topic. I was thinking about this as I was camping in the Mazama area the other day. For me I just like to know where the roads lead. If I go left/right what is that way....a good paper map is always in my truck. Is there a gate ?, out and back type trail?, long loop?. I enjoy the unknown trail as much as anyone but having an idea on where you are in relation to things is a good idea.

  • Looks like Chinook is closing early this year. I'd be surprised if they get this open before the hard snow fall begins. https://www.wsdot.wa.gov/travel/highways-bridges/passes/chinook-and-cayuse/home
  • Snow outside of Wenatchee, easily visible on the surrounding mountains. Mission Ridge Ski Resort has fresh snow, Stevens Pass has a LOT of new snow. The passes have been affected... Nothing unusual for December... But this is September! Use caution and be prepared.
