On Friday, August 23rd 2019 the Liberty State Overland Club headed up to the Lost Meadow Campground in the Little Naches area to set up camp for the weekend.

Saturday morning after breakfast, we headed up to Raven Roost with 3 rigs. The view there was not as we hoped due to clouds covered Mount Rainier. We had lunch and then headed down FS1902. They have done a lot of forest thinning along that road.

We stopped back at camp for a short break and then headed over Pyramid Pass to the west end of the Naches Pass 4×4 Trail. We walked down to see the Naches Cliffs to show the kids some history.  It was a lot of fun for them.

Once we hiked back up to the rigs, we headed back to camp for an awesome taco potluck.

After dinner the kids told scary stories around the propane campfire. It rained a little but that did not stop the fun.

Sunday everyone cleaned up camp and headed home.

This was a great get away.

Hot Desert Nights
By Clay Graham / SS Food Truck

On Friday, August 9th 2019 the SS Food Truck staff met up with Kim’s Got Smoke BBQ in Union Gap to convoy to Desert-Aire to vend at Hot Desert Nights. We used our F350 with camper for our booth supplies and pulled Kim’s Got Smoke BBQ generator trailer.

Once at the Desert-Aire Park, we set up two pop-ups tied to the F350 for the SS Food Truck booth. This was a very nice park with some cool toys you don’t see these days. The kids enjoyed playing until dark.

Around midnight the wind picked up and broke one of the pop-ups loose. We got up and untied that pop-up from the other. With the high winds pushing the pop-up in the air like a parachute, we had to fight it to get it on the ground so it did not pull the other pop-up with it. Around 1:30 AM we had everything moved in the second pop-up and secure.

Saturday morning we had to re-setup the SS Food Truck Booth. Other vendors came and setup too.

The Car show started at 11 am. There were many cool vehicles including some boats and bicycles.  Around 3:30 pm the rain came in hard. A lot of people took there cars home.

People started coming back after the rain for the party. The live band started a little after 7 pm. The band was great and everyone had fun. We hope to come back to this event next year.

Sunday morning, we packed up and convoyed back to the Yakima area.
