99 call an Eastern Washington Off Road 4×4 Run at the Ahtanum State Forest to get some photos of the Dome Peak Fire Area covered in snow.
On Saturday, October 20th, 2007, we met up at Nasty Creek Corrals and aired down. We headed up Nasty Creek Road and turned onto the Strobach Mountain 4×4 Trail. It wasn’t to far in until we hit snow. The Tweety Jeep caught a lot of snow from the low tree branches.
It was really cold up on 4W613. We stopped to let Fatboy lead the way up the hill climb below the 4W613 Upper Meadow. That didn’t work so well. I tried to go around him and almost ate a tree with the drives side of the Tweety Jeep. Fatboy backed up and took another run at the hill. That still didn’t work to well. We worked our way around Fatboy. BecauseSheLetsMe came close to Fatboys TJ passing him. Colemancooler did well on the climb with his siped Swampers. BecauseSheLetsMe crawled up the hill since he was lock on both ends. He said it was the Iroks at 5 lbs. His carb wasn’t working to well though. Test Dummy did well running open. The TrXus MTs seem to grab well at 8 lbs. I aired down a little more to 7 lbs. That helped my MT/Rs grab. Fatboy also aired his MT/Rs down to 7 lbs. He did have to winch back onto the trail.
We made the climb up to the 4W613 Upper Meadow. It was a real nice view of the Yakima Valleys. We headed on to the Dome Peak Fire area for 99’s photos.
We turned around at the Dome Peak Fire Area after taking some nature photos for 99. We did not to keep going since it was to late to have a winch fest on the next hill climbs.
We ran into Phantom 309’s group coming up from Louie Way Gap. They were doing some rig repairs as we were heading back out the Strobach Mountain 4×4 Trail.
We drove back down to Nasty Creek Corrals and aired up for home.
This was a fun run thanks to the people that came along.
