Around 5:30 PM Friday, November 2nd, 2018, my sons, Doc and Odo and I headed out from the Eastern Washington Adventures Club House in Selah toward Beverly Dunes to set up camp for the annual clean-up.

Once at Beverly Dunes we set up camp with TJ40. We used the trucks with campers as a wind block and put up a pop-up between them for shelter. We then had dinner around the propane campfire in the pop-up since it was breezy out.

Saturday morning more Eastern Washington Adventures Club members and volunteers from a few PNW4WDA Clubs showed up help. Stephanie from the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) showed up around 9:30 AM so people could signed in and get some tools for the clean up.

Most of the main work was in the campground cleaned out the fire pits and picked up trash.

After the clean up some headed home and the rest of us went and played in the dunes for a few hours. The ORVs left were Foxracer’s Subaru Outback, TJ40’s Yamaha YXZ, and my Jeep JKU.

Sunday morning we woke up to a blue sky. About the time we decided to pack up, the wind started blowing hard.

Around noon we headed home. Reece followed me in his truck. Crossing the Columbia River on I90 was scary. The wind was blowing so hard, it felt like my truck with camper were going to blow over. We stopped in Vantage to top off the fuel tanks since I used a lot of fuel fighting the wind.

We headed up the the Old Vantage Highway toward Ellensburg with one stop along the way. It was slow going with the hill and wind blowing against us. The wind died down some by the time we got to the Yakima River Canyon.

This was a very fun weekend thanks to all that came.

Some of the people that helped at the 2008 Ahtanum ORV Trails Clean-up wanted to go on a site seeing run on Sunday (July 27th, 2008).

We left the Sno-park around 11 am and headed up the Mid Fork road (A-2000) and onto the Whites Ridge Loop Trail (A-2600). Next we turned up the Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail. We turned toward the North Fork Road on the McLaine Canyon Road (A-3300). On up the North Fork Road (A-3000). We turn off onto the Blue Lake Trail.

We stopped for a break at Blue Lake and then head up 4W615 to Blue Slide Lookout. We stopped for a view overlooking Blue Lake, then on up tp Blue Slide Lookout on FS1020.

After a break, we headed on back down 4W615, the Blue Lake Trail and then turned up the North Fork Road toward Darland Mountain.

We crossed Darland Mountain and headed down the Ahtanum Mid Fork (A-2000) and a few of us stopped at Eagle Nest. The rest of the group headed back to Sno-park to pack up camp.

This was a fun run thanks to all that went.

10 AM Saturday July 26th, 2008, we met up at the Ahtanum Sno-park to set up for the Ahtanum ORV Trails Clean-up we hosted with cooperation from the DNR. We had a big turn out. There were a lot of Eastern Washington Off Road and All Wheelers Off Road Club, some members of PNW4WDA, Lower Valley Canyon Crawlers, Jeeping Nomads, Peak Putters, Ridgerunners, Tuff Enuf Cascade Crawlers, Outlaws, Washington ATV Association and some other caring people. There were 58 volunteers total on the ORV Trails sign-in list.

The Ski Benders also had a clean-up the same day as we did. They took the North Fork Road to clean-up along with the Big Bowl. I am not sure what other Snowmobile areas they worked in.

My group (Ceg, 99, Monster, Bubz, Doc, Odo, Soggymountain and Mrs. Soggymountain) cleaned up the Whites Ridge trails. The first trail we ran was the Whites Ridge Loop trail starting at the bottom off the Mid Fork. We found a tire on Whites Ridge Loop Trail. We turned up the Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail and ran up to Norm Check Point for lunch. After lunch we ran Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail to the end to start that trails clean-up for the top down. One section of the Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail didn’t have much to pick up since the loggers widened the trail burying what could have been there. Another trail turned into a Hi-way. We ran Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail back down to Whites Ridge Loop, McLaine Canyon Road and on to the Ahtanum Mid Fork back down.

Back at base camp people started coming in with a lot of trash. We loaded up two trucks and took the trash to the dumpster.

We had a big Potluck BBQ after everyone was back at camp.

It was great to have so many caring people come out. Thank you to all that came to help and support this Ahtanum State Forest trails project.

On Saturday, October 13th, 2007, All Wheelers Off Road Club and others met up at Juniper Dunes near Pasco, Washington for the Eastern Washington Off Road ORV run.

We covered a lot of ground. This was a great time thanks to all those who came out.

Report by Clay Graham. Photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Off Road

6:30 AM on Saturday, September 22nd, 2007, a few of us convoyed from Yakima to the gravel pit at Moses Lake ORV area to we meet up others for the Eastern Washington Off Road run. Most that came were from the All Wheelers Off Road Club. Camo22 was our Trail Boss for the first part of the day.

First off Camo22 showed us how deep the big mud puddle was as we headed out to the Yellow Zone. As soon as we entered the Yellow Zone, Hercules had a hose clamp problem on his dirt bike. Zip ties worked to fix it.

Camo22 showed us around awhile then he had to go home to get some sleep since he had worked Grave Yard. We headed back toward the tow rigs so Hercules could get some fuel. On the way we ran into Luna, Bobstar, Toyzuki and his friend in a Toyota.

After we got everything we needed at camp, we headed out to a different part of the yellow zone. On the way we had to play on the dunes we came across. It was kind of a maze to get out to the Pothole Reservoir.

After we got out to the Pothole Reservoir and ran the beach awhile, we stopped foe a break and a photo of the afternoon group.

On the way back to the dunes, Toyzuki almost went swimming with his rig. He could not get back up the hill. His friend tried to help and also got stuck where the only way to go was into the water. Fatboy used his TJ to pull both rigs up to safety.

Back at the dunes everyone had fun. Some were jumping dunes and getting a lot of air. Toyzuki got a lot of flight time in with his Samurai on this run.

At one point 99 didn’t make a climb on my quad and really did not want to back down. She got pulled up the hill on my quad by her Tweety Jeep I was driving.

Hercules had another problem with his dirt bike and had to be kind of towed in on a quad. They got it in by a shoestring.

We loaded up around dark to head back home. We had a great time. A special thank you to Camo22 for showing us around the Yellow Zone.
