Hi good to hear from you! I remember a few rides with you and “holy piston” around Carson/cougar. I moved here 5 years ago met some great riding friends. There are few places as nice as the cougar Carson loop but there are plenty of nice twisties north and south of town. Not as long or scenic but fun. If you want to do a day long ride you can get to some pretty spectacular places.

I'm now revisiting this thread, as I've put in an offer on a nice little home on South Hill. 4 BR, (3 main floor, 1 in basement) 2 BA, nicely finished basement, most of house tastefully renovated, new roof on house & 2 car garage, only drawback is a shared driveway. Weird how some homes up there have that.

All that for $219,900. In Vancouver, it would be at least $125,000 to $150,000 more. In Seattle, $400,000 to $500,000 more. Insanity.

My offer's been accepted, but I'm waffling right now about no proof of renovations being permitted & officially inspected for code compliance. I'm a stickler for such things, but the seller has tentatively agreed to having the City come out to check for that. I've heard too many true stories from a Contractor friend how they've had to fix supposedly properly done renovations.....so I'm in full "Caveat Emptor" mode.

I'll know in a couple weeks or so if it's up to snuff. Then I'll be on that side. I've spent quite a bit of time the last 6 years there, helping my Sister care for my Dad before he passed away, so I'm not unfamiliar with everything about it.

One thing that amazes me is how FUCKED UP the roads are....even on South Hill. You'd think the more affluent areas would have nice pavement, but.........

If I don't sell a few more of my bikes before the move, I'll have some vintage smokers for sale. A Suzuki X-6 Hustler, and Yamaha RD350 and RZ350. I just can't financially justify having 12 bikes anymore (I already sold 2 this month).

Looking forward to discovering all the roads over there. But DAMN, I'm sure going to miss FS90, the Carson-Cougar loop, Windy Ridge, and the 224/Detroit Lake/Aufderheide ride to Oakridge. I better quit now, I might start crying.

Best of luck to you and Kevin. I hope the house you are looking at clears all the hurdles.

Shared driveway wasn't a problem for my folks, or me years later.
Only thing about Spokane is the winters are a lot harder than where you're at now.

Welcome to the dry side...

  the road

  a..........
spokanistan has many pros, and many cons. literally. if you are an avid rider, it is a much better place to be. less people (traffic) in any direction, and some great roads. yes; the streets of spokane suck a big one. the winter destroys them and the patches every year. the rough winters also destroy some peoples souls who move here. lol. have to be careful on the s hill; my old house there had stone and masonry foundation, and was literally creeping it's way down the hill.
