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

Enjoyed our cabin at the Moab Valley RV Park. Moab is more fun with such a great group of people to wheel with. We had a great time! Regards, Gary & Debbie Redmond Gary
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
02-25-17 - Snow Run - Washington ad a typical run up Gaston Grade. Lots of snow and downed trees. Made it about 1/2 mile past Poor Man Creek. Got to strap and winch. The road is in good condition considering all the rain this year.

02-12-17 - Henness Pass We had a successful run. Headed out Hwy 20 to Pleasant Valley Rd (Lake Wildwood) and drove up to Peterson's corner on Hwy 49. Made it to the intersection of Ridge and Henness Pass Road. Progress on snow was slow but steady. We tried to return via Foot Road and found a large washout. Back tracked to North San Juan and took Purdon Road to Nevada City.
