When we get that much rain, we call it Tuesday or any other week day. I guess we are more structured for lots of rain here on the Gulf Coast. Sounds like you need a front end loader and some trucks. Call in all of your favors.

that would be the only way in. even a long range drone w/ a cam would let me get an idea how bad it is.

I checked w/ my insurance agent and road repair isn't covered. I didn't think so, but it was worth a check.

How long is your road?  Any way to trailer an Atv to the point it is washed out? Then take the Atv in from there?

my ATV is up there. besides, the road is closed. ANY travel is prohibited and fines up to 10K and 6 months in jail. they are serious about this on. it must be real bad

the cabin has a 6 mile gravel road to it. the closest full time resident is 2-3 miles away. it won't be a priority road unfortunately

I talk to the DNR neighbor. he said there are 4 washouts between up. all at least 10' deep and some 100 yards long. all new culverts are needed. they are working on it, but it won't be done for a while.

they are getting hit again today. I got 2" here today and needed it. the bigger part of the storm is around the cabin. it definitely isn't helping.

I always look for a positive, so here I go. there wasn't supposed to be much wind. hopefully not much chainsaw work. and the plants are getting plenty of nutrition to the browse for the deer. #3 I don't have a bear tag so I don't need to worry about baiting w/o access. 3 positives anyway

Attaboy Yari - find a few positives to keep from grinding your teeth & pacing around so much.  Been there many times with the Mississippi river conditions down south where I do most of my turkey and firearm deer hunting. You do what you can, but sometimes it's just outta your ability to do anything.

I called the USFS for the cabin. is much worse than I thought. there are still residents that can't get out from the 7/11 rain. he said I was in a 15" inch swath of rain that went 5 miles east and west of me. it was the worst area. there will be several roads that may never reopen. the bridge to my east was washed out and may not be rebuilt. here's the capper. I MAY NOT BE ABLE TO GET TO MY PLACE UNTIL 2017. I need to at least get my atv out somehow for snow plowing. time will tell.

the good news, at least I wasn't there when it happened!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would have had to leave my truck and walk out. then leave it until maybe next year? that would have been bad

wish me luck. hunting around here is an option, but it's not nearly as fun. I like the quiet of the big woods, but i'll do what I need to do I guess.

Time to invest in a helicopter with enough capacity to lift your ATV out, or a bear, deer, or whatever else you might harvest up there.  Hunting pressure will certainly be down!
