Whip Posted November 17, 2007 Share Posted November 17, 2007 Leaving Muncho Lake was one of the very few wet morning we had. I expected a lot more. I love the smell of road construction in the mornin!!! You learn not to ignore those orange signs.......they usually understate the road conditions. Locals Can't pass up this pic op. ????????????????I don't remember why I did this??????????????? Watson Lake is famous for only one thing.... At Spring Torrey Nando gave me an idea. I asked Signman to make a F.O.G. sign for me to take with us to Watson Lake. Now where should we put it?????????? I couldn't find a place anywhere......... I was about to rip someones sign off a post to make room for ours.... Finally....with out have to vandalize anything..... If you ever go there and want to find it....walk in the main entrance off the highway and go straight back till it ends ...... look for this. Some more from the Sign Post Forest. I guess this is too keep the chickens out... After another really bad meal we started on our way to Ross River..... The weather didn't look good, but away we went. This is why we put the knobbies on in Fort Nelson. 230 miles of dirt road lay between us and our motel for the evening. The weather behind us looked pretty good. The weather in front of us???????????????? I was lookin for orange signs to warn me about possible trouble ahead.....they tricked me. This looks like fun...ugh!!! Mr Olson, lets talk about this.... After reading "Deep Survival" I knew this was one of those times when you plan so much for something that you can miss the warning signs. It starting to rain....... the road was turning to slime. It's getting colder..... I put on my rain gear over my stich..... I asked this truck driver, who had come from where we were goin, how bad is was. He said,"it was the worst rain he had ever seen and the road was almost washed out." I was havin flash backs and wondering if it would rain on me the rest of my life. Chris had memorized the entire route many times over was already thinkin about alternative routes. Back the way we came over to Teslin.....then north to Dawson tomorrow. Ross River will have to wait. I felt enlightened....and glad I didn't have to risk Mrs Whip's life. I have to finish the rest of this after lunch....... Limecreek called he wants to meet for breakfast!!!!!!!!!!!!! be back in a couple hours. Lots more pix on the way..... Link to comment
