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.

On Saturday September 9th 2006 we met up in Vantage and convoyed to Moses Lake Sand Dunes for an All Wheelers Off Road Club run called by Icesis.

It was very windy when we pulled in. We played in the sand dune climbing and shooting around bowls.

We worked our way out to the Potholes Reservoir. Riding a long the short was a lot of fun. We stopped to watch a CJ drive out into the Potholes Reservoir and kill there motor. CJ’s don’t float!

This was a great day run. We found out this is the better time to go. There is a lot more fun with the Potholes Reservoir area open. It is only open from July1st to October 1st.

On Friday Saturday March 31st, 2006 we headed to Moses Lake Sand Dunes to camp for the weekend on have some ORV fun in the sand.

We pulled in just before dark. We were not sure where to camp so we pulled off of Sand Dune road at the first fire pit we saw. I stuck the motor home in the sand. We off loaded the XJ off of the trailer and pulled the motor home out. We parked there with backing up the 2 wheel drive pickup with trailer as far off the road as we could. We parked the Jeep on the other side making triangle around the campfire. Later that night we found we were in the middle of a Mad Max movie. Outside was trucks with open exhaust, loud quads and automatic weapon fire all going off at once for hours. The motor home was rocking from how close they were flying by.

The new morning other people from Eastern Washington Off Road showed up. One guy was lived in Moses Lake and said that 12:01 April 1st was the start of Hell Night and we were in it. A few of us hit the sand dune while others were waiting for friends to show. We made it out to the Yellow Zone boarder and worked our way back. Not very far from the Yellow Zone, I lost a rear u-joint on my XJ. We bungeed the rear drive-line up since we could not pull it without loosing transmission fluid. The quads went ahead looking for the easiest way back out. We only had a few hills that were challenging with only having from wheel drive and a drive-line beating up the bottom of the Jeep.

Back at camp it was raining hard. Some others showed up with dirt bikes and 4×4 rigs. I They all went out after the rain stopped.

Sunday morning my cousin Ginger and her family came out to see us with a new u-joint for the XJ. We had a good visit and then headed back home to Yakima through the Yakima River Canyon.

This was a fun time other than the Mad Max part.
