Due to moist condidtions, the RRR has been moved... but not very far. Check here for the new directions (the old ones will get you there too since we will have signs) and to find out what to bring!
PLEASE SPREAD THIS MESSAGE TO ANY APPROPRIATE LISTS
AND FORWARD TO ANYONE YOU KNOW IS PLANNING ON
ATTENDING THE RRR. THANKS.

The RRR site has been moved to Shellrock Lake, but
DON"T PANIC, it's adjacent to Cache Meadow, the
previous site that was announced. The dates are still
July 4-11.

1. RIDES
2. MODIFIED DIRECTIONS
3. THERE ARE BUGS! BRING WATER! Come Self-Sufficient
4. GETTING DIRECTIONS & RIDES WITHOUT EMAIL ACCESS

RIDES:
RIDE Board will be up by the end of today (Wed 28th)
at http://cascadiarising.org/rrr2005/.

If you cannot check the ride board on-line, call
Cascadia Rising at 503-493-7495. There will be a
phone number on the answering machine to call for
in-person help.

DIRECTIONS:

Follow current directions
( http://cascadiarising.org/rrr2005/) to the
Ripplebrook Ranger Station 25 miles SE of Estacada on
Hwy. 224 (Estacada is roughly 30 miles SE of Portland,
OR). From Ripplebrook to the Rondy is about 17 miles.
All roads are good quality with most of them being
paved.

Turn left at Ripplebrook Ranger Station on FS Rd. 4631
(sign says "Timothy Lake detour route" as FS RD 57 has
been washed out) and take it to its end at the
juncture with 4635/4630 (basically 4631 turns
into 4630). Turn/stay right onto 4630, go to its end,
and turn left onto FS RD 57. Go about one mile. Turn
left on FS RD 58, go about 2.5 miles, and turn left on
FS RD 5830. The sign at this junction (5830
sign is not visible till you turn onto it a couple
hundred feet) says to "Hideaway Lake." Go about 4
miles to the 130 spur and turn right, go about one
mile to the welcome station on your left. Parking is
in
the quarry across from the welcome station.

The trail up to Shellrock Lake from the welcome center
is about a half mile up hill.

For those who need easier access to Shellrock Lake,
there is an easier trail in. Check in at the Welcome
center for directions. Drop off those who need to take
this trail, then drive your rig back to the parking
quarry.

DON'T FORGET:
Mosquito bite prevention (eat garlic, long sleeves,
repellant, netting, whatever works for you)
Water Jugs, Water Filters, etc.
Come self-sufficient!


LUDDITES & TRAVELLERS:
If you do not have internet access you can call (503)
493-7495. The answering machine will have phone
numbers to call to receive help with the ride board
and/or to get the latest directions. The Web is the
best place for that information, but for those without
access these phone numbers will get you in touch with
someone who does have web access!
