12-10-17 - TNF Run Had a good run today through TNF. Three rigs went out on many forest roads making our way to the gold mining town of Forest City. Traveled up through the Oregon Creek drainage, the creek crossing was tricky , as steel crossing had been moved by high water, but we pushed on to Mountain House for lunch. After lunch it was onto Sanduskey Trail where downed trees slowed us down again, but cleared with a little saw work. Onto Forest City 4 wheel up hill trail, and headed to German Bar Trail, got to heading down to Yuba River, and meet jeep coming back. Told us trail had big wash out above mine, So backed tracked to pavement for air up and home. A full day wheeling TNF. Was told by a local that German Bar will be gated at top by property owner. So another fun trail will be no more. Sad. Brian

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.
