  • Groba dude trustafarian osnt

    Does commercial vehicles prohibited mean loaded pickups?

  • I haven’t been out there in a while, but isn’t the bridge the only access to a good number of houses?

    • The maps show a way from 101 but I have never tried it. If it really exists. A lot of maps in Humboldt are very , hmm…,theoretical.

  • Gee, I wonder if anyone will try to repair the bridge?

    Naaaaaaaahhhhh… I forgot. It’s Humboldt.

    $50 says pickup hauling, I dunno, bags of cement, or 4000 lbs potting soil, or other normal necessities, in water before October…
