"Whiskey 7 Rover"

Jim & Andrew take "Livingston" and head into The Oregon Desert - August 7-15 2004

After two years of planning and earlier exploratory trips, trek organizer Wayne Phelps, WA7PCG, has put together an off-road adventure to test the legendary "Series" model vintage Land Rovers ( 1948-1985). Assembling a small owner's group of these original model Rovers, Wayne will lead these off-road enthusiasts into the remote areas of Oregon. This will be an all-day, every day driving trip of 1500+ miles through some of the most scenic and diverse landscapes Oregon has to offer.  We will travel the highest road in Oregon with altitudes ranging from 453 to as high as 9500 and explore many interesting sights along the way to the Alvord Desert in southeastern Oregon.

The trip begins on Saturday, August 7th.  in Estacada, Oregon and ends Sunday, August, 15th. at the Barlow Road on the south side of Mount Hood.  The route will roughly follow: Ripplebrook Ranger Station, Wapinitia, Simnasho, Lake Simtustus, Sisters, Mt. Bachelor, Round Mountain Lookout, Paulina Peak, East Butte Lookout, Hole in the Ground, Fort Rock, Christmas Valley, Crack in the Ground, Hart Mountain Antelope Refuge, Frenchglen, The Steens, Fields, Alvord Desert, Stonehouse Creek, Riddle Lookout, Suplee, Mitchell, Antelope, Shaniko, and Maupin.
