The dumping of snow in the Cascades over the New Year’s holiday meant only one thing: SNOW RUN!!! So we loaded up the wagon, and met the rest of the gang early the next morning at the Maverik in West Richland:
Gotta love seeing nothing but a bunch of Jeep headlights in the rearview mirror as you’re heading toward the hills!
We arrived at the staging area, unloaded our outfit, and the rest of the group proceeded with airing down:
As we rapidly gained elevation after leaving the staging area, I garnered the dubious award for first stuck of the day:
The minions took the opportunity to charge the hill, and had a blast sledding for a while:
We continued upward, and found deeper snow and more challenging conditions:
Additional psi’s were removed:
Turns out, it still didn’t help enough, as it was the day of a thousand stucks. At one point, we had 4 of the 6 rigs buried at the same time:
After literally hours of digging, winching, strapping, crawling, and rev-limiter assaults, we had all had enough. I was so frustrated that I made the boy drive back because I couldn’t seem to move more than a few feet without becoming stuck. Of course, he turned the Jeep around and eased back to the trailer without so much as a wheel being spun
Back down at the staging area, we loaded up and the rest of the gang aired back up. It was a pretty frustrating day, but any day in the hills is better than a day on the couch
Dang it was hot but things are looking better during the next few weeks. Who wants to host the August meeting?
Area for everyone to post pics and reports of new runs and events.
