Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Bodhi, my wife and I journeyed to eastern Oregon last weekend to visit the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument.
I had done this trip last year in late October with a friend.
We camped and canoed on the John Day River.
Temps were in the low sixties during the day and in the 20's at night.

This year, summer was hanging on and it was very hot.


Painted Hills Unit

The best time to see the Painted Hills is at sunset.
We were there at mid day.

Bodhi gots lots of stickers in his paws here

Sheep Rock

On the last day, we hiked into the Blue Basin. It was 90 and the canyon walls concentrated the heat.
Bodhi was not happy. We didn't stay long.

Absolutely beautiful!

Poor Bodhi, I'm sure he was miserable with those temps.

Another person who might want to publish a calendar! The pictures, the scenery and the inhabitants - all gorgeous!

Michael - I'm pondering making a long line leash for Ami as you somewhere suggested out of tubular nylon webbing - Question: does this stuff have good abrasion resistance? Current flimsy thing wearing out after 3 days dragging on oil and stone roads.

Amy, I have never had webbing break or wear out.

Usually I replace the webbing every year when it starts looking sad and fuzzy.
You can wash it and it drys quickly.
