    Haha, yea. Looks good man. I'll get those leafs ordered soon. Roxanne will be gone for a week starting this Thursday so hopefully we can get some work done and throw in a wheeling trip up Mary's Peak down here in Corvegas.

    Used a tracking app to make this map of where we went in Camp Morrison which is just east of Scio. I think we pretty much covered every route that was open except the southeast portion since we not only had to stop because of the snow, there were at least two trails we didn't have time to hit. Everything else is pretty much complete. Next time I go I will detail landmarks and what is paved vs gravel vs mud etc.
