E-mail received from Stephanie Beall (Oregon Department of Forestry) this afternoon.

As you’ve probably guessed from watching the nightly reports of brush fires on the local news, fire danger is on the rise. With the forecast for rising temperatures and east winds, the IFPL (Industrial Fire Precaution Level) will be going to a LEVEL 3 at 1:00 AM on Thursday, July 30, 2015. For recreation visitors to the Tillamook State Forest that means, effective at 1:00 a.m., PDT, July 30, 2015 the OHV Trails in the Browns Camp, Jordan Creek, Diamond Mill, Trask and BLM Upper Nestucca OHV Areas will CLOSE and remain CLOSED for the duration of the IFPL 3. During the IFPL 3, OHV operation in the Browns Camp, Jordan Creek, Diamond Mill, Trask and BLM Upper Nestucca areas will be limited to travel on maintained gravel roads only. Additionally, the non-industrial (personal use) chainsaw wavier is rescinded as part of the IFPL 3 closure.
I will send out another e-mail when the IFPL drops back down and the OHV trails re-open. I will also maintain the information on the TSF homepage. (http://www.oregon.gov/ODF/Tillamookstateforest ) As always, feel free to drop me an e-mail or give me a call if you have any questions about the closure.
Please help spread the word about the OHV trail closure. Thanks for helping to keep the Tillamook State Forest safe from wildfires!
My life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body... But rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming... WOW! What a Wild Ride!
ExCabSwap: The wind there looks horrible... Still worth it haha

Wyldman: The Cowbell... If you are a club member and you're on one of our wheelin' trips. If you get stuck on an obstacle and have to be pulled out by your winch or someone elses winch/strap. You earn the Cowbell.

poorboy: Wyldman, I got to see the passing of the bell at the meeting and learned quite a bit about the tradition.
