On Saturday, June 13th 2020, Liberty State Overland Club members met up at Oak Creek Ace Hardware in Naches. A little after 10 AM we convoyed to the Nile and aired down at FS1500 and Meloy Canyon Road.

After airing down we headed up Meloy Canyon. A few miles up, Reese’s ZJ blow a coolant hose. He got it fixed and we went up another couple miles then it over headed. We decided to take it back down to the parking area. I left Odo with Jason and went to the parking are with Reese following. Reese and Doc jumped in the YJ with me and Shelby, then we were on our way again.

Up on top of Bethel Ridge we stopped for a short break. The dogs needed to run. As we drove on up the trail, the weather cooled down farther we went. We cross onto Forest Service land. We stopped for another break at a view of Table Mountain.

We moved on up the trail until we came across some big mud holes. The mud kept sucking rigs in as they tried to stay on solid ground. Only two of the five rigs made it through without getting stuck. Once through the mud areas, we stopped for a break overlooking Rimrock Lake. The view of the Rimrock Area and looking down toward the Yakima Valley was great.

We headed on down to FS1500 and took it back across to pick up Reese’s ZJ. Once back at FS1500 and Meloy Canyon Road, we aired up for home. Everyone headed out their own way accept Reese’s rig and mine. We had to stop at the Wood Shed because Reese’s ZJ was getting hot. We gutted the thermostat and then add coolant and water Reese bought at The Wood Shed. We were good to go and made it back to Selah without any problem.

This was another great day with family and friends.

Selah Cruise Night
By Clay, Odo & Doc Graham / Selah Sausage Food Truck

On Saturday, June 6 2020, Charlie, Doc and I took a Jeep ride downtown Selah around 5 pm to join the cruise night fun. Coming through town there were a few cool cars here and there. We parked at the Red Rooster and took photos of the cars coming into town.

Around 6 PM the wind picked up and it got cold. We headed home and put the doors on the Jeep. Doc was frozen from riding in the back so he stayed home. Odo took his seat and became the camera man. We headed back to town. By the time we got back to town, the weather was good again. We drove though a few parking lots to check out the cars. We stopped to see some friends at the Civic Center for a few before heading back to the Red Rooster.

Down at the Red Rooster we had a lot of friends show up. I even got to see some people I had not seen in a long time. We stayed until after sundown and headed home when it got cold.

Selah Cruise Night
By Clay & Doc Graham / Selah Sausage Food Truck

On Saturday, May 30th 2020, we took a Jeep ride downtown Selah to see the cruising vehicles and see some friends. We got there a little early but First Street had a lot of people and cars out already. We ran the cruise route a few times to get photos before stopping to see friends. About the time we got photos of the cars that were parked, a big storm came though with high wind, lightening, and rain. We had to cut things short since we left the Jeep doors at home and the rain was blowing through the Jeep along with other things. Driving by the Selah Downtown Association office, we almost got hit by what looked to be a political sign. We stopped at Red Roster to let our friends know we were heading home. Everyone there was packing up to get out of the weather.

We headed home in the wind and rain. As we pulled into the driveway the rain turn into a downpour. We lucked out there.

We hope to see everyone next Saturday in Selah if all works out.

Memorial Day Backroads Run

On Sunday, May 24th, 2020, Liberty State Overland Club members met up at Graham Family Farm and convoyed to the WDFW Hay Barn entrance of the Wenas Wildlife Area. We had one member meet us there.

We aired down and headed up Cleman Mountain. On the way up we head an XJ over heat. We took a break there to let it cool down.

Once the XJ was cooled down, we headed on up to the top of Cleman Mountain. We turn to the east and ran the ridge to the end of the Green Dot Road where we stopped for lunch.

After lunch, we ran the ridge all the way to FS1701 with a few stops a long the way. Once on FS1701 we ran it toward Bald Mountain and stopped for a break near Hog Ranch Road.

Next we ran Hog Ranch Road to the bottom and aired up at North Wenas Road. After airing up we convoyed back to Graham Family Farm for a potluck dinner.

This was a great day with family and friends.

Americanism: A Call to Action
By Clay Graham / Selah Sausage Food Truck

On Saturday, May 23rd 2020, we went to the Yakima Speedway for “Americanism: A Call to Action” to support our American Freedoms. There were many great speakers and many booths. It was a great time.

We were going to sell food during the event. Our Yakima County Health Temporary Food Permit that was issued earlier in the week was pulled around 6 PM the night before. Of course after we had bought products to sell. We were told the event might be a large number of people there and Governor Inslee has not gave permission to have big gatherings. We were told if we worked this event, that we were in jeopardy of ever getting a food permit again. The Yakima County Health Department said they would return our permit fees. We still have to eat the cost of the Food Truck’s insurance we put on for that week and all the food we did not get to sell.

We have been a food vendor for over five years and do by the food vendor rules. Since the commissary kitchen we were using was sold, we have to get temporary permits until we find another commissary kitchen to get a annual permit. That is why we got a Yakima County Health Temporary Food Permit to sell food at this event. Governor Inslee has not made a rule against us serving take out. It is legal for us to set up where we were going to vend at anytime with the owners permission as long as we have a permit. Just like any other business location around. There is no law against us serving Take-Out to the public.
