On Saturday July 19th, 2008, everyone met up at Lost Meadow off FS1906 for the annual summer Naches Pass 4×4 Run we call the “Wild Winger”.  Around 10:30 AM we hit the Naches Pass Trail (4W684) with three XJs, Two Toyota Trucks and a FJ40.

88sr5rollin1986 had a steering wheel problem before we got to FS1913. With the help of a few other, he got the steering wheel back on where it worked. At FS1913 88sr5rollin1986 took his rig back to camp because of the steering wheel problem. 88sr5rollin1986 and his Co-pilot got a ride in Scuba’s rig to see the rest of the trail.

We headed on crossing the trail bridges. “99” was afraid she was going to drive off them with her Tweety Jeep.

We stopped at the top of a hill climb so “Ron the Parts Guy” FJ40 could cool down. This is when 89 yota’s rig wouldn’t start. Oh what a feeling! Test Dummy helped 89 yota get his rig started and we were on our way.
We stopped at the top of the Naches Pass to get some pictures and then stopped for lunch at the Pacific crest trail crossing.

After lunch we headed on west down the Naches Pass Trail. At FS70, we took a break to hike down to see Naches Cliff, where the Pioneers had winch down their wagons.

Heading back over by NF70 to Pyramid Pass “Ron the Parts Guy” stopped to call his wife.

On FS1914 we jumped back on Naches Pass Trail to ran it back East. We went back to camp and ate dinner.

After dinner we took Scuba’s and my 99 XJ up Kaner (4W676) from the bottom. We ran it until we found a big mud hole Scuba could not make it through with both lockers on. Scuba finely gave up trying after I told him I wasn’t driving in that.

The next day Scuba headed home and we drove up to Ravens Roost. Up on top at Ravens Roost was a very nice view of Mt Rainier.

The Toyotas headed out for home. We head on down and decided to run Power Line. The part of Power Line we ran wasn’t bad. It beats running the road.

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

On Saturday November 3rd, 2007 “89 yota” and I drove over Pyramid Pass. We met up with two west side members (Icesis & Barbie) and a guest (Carmen) on FS70.
This run was set up for the people that were new to wheeling to get some trail time. This was the first time for two ladies to drive their own rigs on the trail. Carmen in the blue Toyota pickup & Barbie in the TJ.

We met on FS70 and found a place to air down. We first ran Naches Pass Trail up to the Government Meadows Cabin parking area at Pacific Crest Trail and then headed back down the way we came up to be easy on the newbies. On the way down we ran into another group going up. I met a wheeler in a nice old Jeep that had seen the Tweety Jeep on the net. I believe his name was Brad.

We turning on Pyramid Pass and ran to the east side. On the east side we turned east onto Naches Pass Trail AKA 4W684. We got a few photos a long the way to FS1913. Brad’s group caught up to us so we pulled over and let them pass, then near FS1913 we passed Brad’s group taking a break.

At FS1913 we left Naches Pass and ran FS19 to FS1902, then up to Ravens Roost where we were hoping for some snow. There was no snow at Ravens Roost, it was just real cold!

We headed back down. We regrouped at Crow Creek Campground and then headed to Whistling Jacks where we parted ways.

This was a fun run thanks to the people that came. The newbies all did well on the trail. No carnage (yet). We hope to get them to wheel with us again.
