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.

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

On Sunday, September 9th, 2007, the Jeeping Nomads had they annual 4×4 Swap meet at Mobile Fleet Services in Yakima. Quite a few of us went. I got in free because I drove the Tweety Jeep there.

Test Dummy bought some shocks for his XJ from Ron at 4wheelingplus.com and I got some brake lines for the Jimmy build.

I got to see some people I know and also got to meet some others. I had a real fun time. This was a nice little swap meet.

Here are some photos of Jeeping Nomads 4×4 Swap Meet:

Labor Day Run & Camp Out at the Ahtanum
Hosted by Eastern Washington Off Road.
Report by Clay Graham. Photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Off Road

On Friday August 31st, 2007 we when up to Tree Phones in the Ahtanum State Forest to set up camp for the weekend.

Saturday we hit the trail around 10 AM. We ran the same trails in two groups. The quads went one way and the rigs the opposite way. We took the rigs from Nasty Creek on up the Strobach Mountain 4×4 Trail. We stopped for a break by the Hogback and then again at the Strobach Mountain Vista. There was a view of Rimrock and Mount Rainier from Strobach Mountain.

We continued up 4W613. We met up with the quads around Dome Peak.

We dropped on down to the lower meadow and started the climb up Foundation Ridge. This part of the trail climbs pretty good and has a lot of obstacles. On on this run was a small tree down on the trail we had to cross. Scuba got hung up on it and his XJ took on some carnage getting off the log. He only lost the rear side window, a door handle, a mirror and added some good dents.

We moved on up 4W613 to the end on top of Foundation Ridge. We turned on Jackass Road and ran it to Blue Slide Lookout. There were some guys rebuilding the Blue Slide Shelter.

We headed down 4W615 to Blue Lake for a short break. We continued on 4W615 and turn down the Blue Lake 4×4 Trail. Right after the gate keeper, Scuba lost a bead on the same tire as many times before. After his last run he got his On Board Air hooked up in case this happened again. They ended up having to take the wheel off the rig to set the beads. We were back on the trail pretty fast.

At the end of the Blue Lake 4×4 Trail, we turn up the Ahtanum North Fork Road and ran it to the top of Darland Mountain. At the top we ran the Forest Service road north to the end for the view looking back toward Blue Lake. After the view, we headed back to camp for the night with on last stop at Eagle Nest.

On Sunday we had less ORVs with us on the trail. We first headed up Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail. We stopped at the view point over Tree Phones and then on top close to the Grey Rock Trail at the Mount Rainier View Point.

Next we headed back down the Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail, on to McLaine Canyon Road, and up the Mid Fork Ahtanum back at camp for lunch. We ran into Hoss on the way.

After lunch we headed down the Mid Fork Ahtanum Road to the Ahtanum Sno-park and then up A2400 to the Sedge Ridge 4×4 Trail. The rocky climb is always fun for most. Luna had a little trouble getting up it with her quad.

Near the Dual Climb, Hoss’s Bronco died. He had some problem starting his Bronco. Hoss turned around and coasted back down the mountain until the trail started climbing. The Bronco would not start until I hook the strap up to it and was going to pull him with the Tweety Jeep. The Bronco fired up under protesting a Jeep pulling it. Hoss drove on out to Sno-park and I head up the mountain to meet Bobstar and Luna.

We met up with Bobstar and Luna near the Cultus Hole View Point. We took a break there and then headed back to camp.

This was a real fun run thanks to to people that came.
