09-16-17 09-17-17 Poker Flat/McCrea Meadow What a great run this weekend, a big thanks to Pat and Ron Dow for their hospitality Saturday morning. From that point on we did a lot of wheeling great camp that night. Sunday off to Gold Valley, Hawley Lake camp gate closed, went to the cabin, trail open, cleanest I've seen ever. Headed out 213 miles put on for this trip. Great group of people to wheel with. Thanks again Pat and Ron, Jack Ron Dow
09-08-17 09-10-17 Barret Lake Run Nine rigs came in on Friday. Four rigs went out on Saturday. Four rigs came in on Saturday. Camping was very tight. We ended up next to the Dam on the slabs. Friday night was very noisy. Saturday night much better. No major mechanical issues. Jason's electric Samurai was a hit. Rained Friday and Saturday evenings. Missed the hail storm. Trail was in good shape and I think it was a little easier than last year at Gate Keeper. In summary a very successful run. I had a great time Gary Redmond
08-24-17 08-26-17 Rubicon The Rubicon Run this year was a great time for all who attended. Couldn't have asked for nicer weather. We had 10 rigs go in on Thursday to Buck Island camp after a long day of wheeling the trail. Had camp to ourselves . Next day it was onto the Springs with one rig getting a flat tire. Quick trail fix, and moving on down Big Sluice to camp. Sat morning up early and out to Tahoe, with one rig losing a lower control arm within shouting distance of trail staging at paved road. AAA was called for tow out to get a good welding job. Lucked out where it broke, as it could have been a trail plug breakage. Once again the Rubicon Trail is always an adventure. Good times. Brian.

05-13-17 - Clipper_Peterson Ridge About 14 people in 9 vehicles joined this exploration of Clipper and Peterson Ridges. Attending: Jack and Linda, Gil and Anita, Flynn and Ester, Dow and Kathy, Steve, Bob, Tom, and Mike. We wandered down some narrow and brush trails, found a short walk to a waterfall and checked out the trail head to to Wambo Bar and the Deadwood powerhouse. At one point we thought we could hear banjo music. I enjoyed the company and seeing some new country. - Martin W. Martin Ward

03-25-17 - Snow Run - Washington Areq Well we had another great day snow wheeling up around Washington. Had 11 rigs show up. We went up Gaston Grade to the snow. Hit it at about 5k feet elevation, just about everyone got to use their winches / straps etc. Never made it to Graniteville as the snow is still way to deep. We turned around about 8 miles up the hill. Brian. Brian
