So two weeks ago, I went on a trip to my parents cabin with my gf and was in for some surprises. The following week, after Christmas, I went with my family.

First trip with Alyssa: We arrive at 3pm.



First things first; once you arrive, basically, you have to move snow to get the car in the driveway and off the road. This much snow in the cascades, this early in the year, is very uncommon. Many years we have anywhere from 0-8 inches. As you can see, well over two feet. I gotta thank Alyssa though, she is a trooper. Wouldn't have been able to get nearly as much snow moved if she wasn't so willing to help out.



Our first night there, we lost power from 7pm, well into the afternoon the next day, due to trees falling on power lines all over the area. Everything is cold, dark, and quiet. We layer up, light some candles, and play some connect 4. In the morning, we decided to go snowboarding at Stevens Pass, WA since there would be nothing to do with the power out. Spent the day there, teaching her everything, as it was her first time on a board. I was impressed how quickly she picked it up and was able to actually ride the thing.

We get home after the long day there, and the power is on, thankfully. First thing we do is make some warm food and have a strong drink and watch a movie. The power flickers on and off, in 15 minute increments. The whole time, we are just preparing for the worst, but it luckily manages to stay on throughout the night.

The next morning we are woken up to some noise down stairs. Something is causing our front slider doors blinds to move back and forth. My first thought is mice, since we do have a small mice problem; to which we set traps for and always get some. I look downstairs and I see this black thing moving across the floor. Yup definitely a mouse; but I've never seen a live one run around before. Next thing I know, the black racquetball-sized silhouette is in the air and flying around. A bird... Turns out we forgot to close the cracked slider door last night. After standing there, looking at each other for a minute, trying to figure out how we are going to catch this thing and release it, the bird flys into the top story window and falls 9 feet to the floor. I go down and grab it, and it looks pretty banged up. I hold it for a few minutes, trying to determine if it broke anything. Birds run into windows all the time at my house and fly off a minute or two later, so I figure that's the case here. I open the door, hold it outside, and after a minute it flutters away. A unique way to start the day. After that, we just hang out for most of the day, make food, do a little snow shoveling, I drag out the snowmobile and go for a quick ride, only to find out that there are tons of trees down and I have to turn around.



The next day, we go snowboarding again. We wake up extra early, as to get there and get first tracks. As luck would have it, a tree had fallen that night due to excessive, right in front of our driveway, nearly missing hitting my car. I get to my car and see two guys cutting it up and calling in a plow truck to push it out of the way. As it was the neighbors tree that fell, it was probably them that called it in, earlier that morning. I was impressed with the response time these guys had and with how timely they were. Score one for local government. So after waking up an hour early to get first chairs, we end up being an hour late.... oh well. Better late than never. However, after coaching and seeing Alyssa snowboard for her second time, I gotta say, she has picked it up really quick and really seems to enjoy it.



Since I forgot to pack an important part of the food we had previously bought, we had to head into Plain, WA to buy more food. You probably haven't heard of this place, probably one of the smallest towns in the country. We learned that these people have been without power for 5 days already, and were projected to be without power for another 6 days, at least. After we got our food and were driving back to the cabin, we were stopped by power line crews that were cutting a tree off of a power line. I talked to the flagger while we were waiting there for 20 mins, and he was saying they had repaired the area earlier that week, but more trees had fallen down and they had to start all over again. ****ty. We decided to go home and cook food as soon as possible, in case we lose power again. We did. Luckily, it was only out for 40 mins this time.

Our last day there, we spend most of the morning hanging out, eating breakfast, and cleaning everything up for when I come back the following week with my family.

When I come back up with my family, my dad and I head to the trails and cut all the trees and branches back for us to ride on. We are pretty much the only people that use these old logging roads. Unfortunately, we can only get so far due to our limited time there, and a cost/benefit analysis of cutting away trees vs. riding. Here is a small video I through together. Hope you have enjoyed the thread.

I know right. It was 36 the other night but then rose to 91 hahaha it's a rainy *** morning here so nothing close to snow. I hope it gets damn cold soon though. Makes bow hunting that much more enjoyable.
