Around 1 PM Friday, November 3rd, 2017, my sons, Doc and Odo and I headed out from the Eastern Washington Adventures Club House in Selah toward Beverly Dunes to set up camp for the annual clean-up. Reece and his son followed us in their truck.

Once at Beverly Dunes we set up camp and then sat around the propane campfire in the pop-up since it was cold. TJ40 pulled in later in the dark and joined us in the warm pop-up. The sky was clear, the moon was bright, and it was very cold outside.

Saturday morning the Trail Seekers Club showed up and started the clean up early since it was real cold out. Stephanie from the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) showed up around 9:30 AM so people could signed in and get some tools for the clean up.

Most of the main work was in the campground cleaned out the fire pits and picked up trash. We also had to break up an illegal fire rock ring. A dirt bike ride came to talk to us since he was not happy we were tossing the rocks back out where they came from. We let him know fires were only allowed in the metal fire pits placed by the DNR. That did not seem to mater to him since he did not put his illegal campfire out when he returned.

After the clean up some headed home and the rest of us went and played in the dunes into the dark. The ORVs left was Foxracer’s Subaru Outback, TJ40’s Yamaha YXZ, and my Jeep JKU.

Sunday morning we woke up to the place covered in snow. This was very cool. The first time ever for us to see snow a Beverly Dunes. We ate a fast breakfast and headed out to “Go Play”! We figured we would leave later after the roads were cleared of snow.

Out in the sand dunes was very fun. It made the trails a lot more fun and more challenging for Foxracer’s Subaru Outback. We played some follow the leader with the Subaru Outback, Yamaha YXZ, and Jeep JKU looking for fun. What a blast!

Around 1 PM we headed home. The roads were good for us heading back to Selah by the way of SR24, but Foxracer had a longer time getting home since I90 was closed.

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

Packwood Labor Day Weekend Flea Market
Report & Photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets

On Wednesday, August 3oth through Monday September 4th, 2017, we had the Selah Sweets Vendor Trailer set up at the Packwood Timberland Library for the Packwood Labor Day Weekend Flea Market.

We again brought the E350 Camper Van to sleep in and the 1961 Chinook Travel Trailer to vend out of. It worked out great for the most part. We did not have enough ice again.

The weather was nice. We were able to see Mount Rainier from downtown Packwood.

With the warm weather, we sold a lot of Shaved Ice. The fudge sales were good too. Sales over all were great for us and we were business most of the time.

Beverly Dunes Clean Up and Camp Out
Hosted by Eastern Washington Adventures with cooperation from the Department of Natural Resources.

Report and photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets

Around 1 PM Friday, June 2nd, 2017, my son Doc and I headed out from the Eastern Washington Adventures Club House in Selah toward Beverly Dunes to set up camp for the annual clean-up.

Once at Beverly Dunes we set up camp and then took a drive across the area to see how much trash was left after the Memorial Day Weekend. It was not to bad for the most part, but there was a lot of garbage around and under the dumpster. Someone also left a stripped VW Bug in the old parking lot. We found someone cut the east fence wires and the cable wide enough to fit a small rig through.

Saturday morning the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) staff showed up early to greet the volunteers for the Beverly Dunes Clean Up as they signed in. There was 5 of us from Eastern Washington Adventures and two guest from Western Washington. We started off picking up around the dumpster. We winched the dumpster off the garbage the garbage truck buried. Next some headed out to the dunes to pick up trash, the rest of us cleaned out the fire pits and picked up trash in the campground.

After the clean up, we went and played in the dunes until dinner. That evening there was an awesome sunset and then the wind started blowing. Late that night the wind was blowing so hard that it was rocking our van. You could hear our pop up moving around. I was surprised the pop up was not damaged.

Sunday morning we took a short run in the dunes and then backed up for home.

My son and I stopped at Wanapum Dam on the Columbia River to check out the new Turbine Park. We took a walk around the park and then headed home by running the Old Vantage Highway and the Yakima River Canyon.

This event was a very fun weekend.

Packwood Memorial Day Weekend Flea Market
Report & Photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets

On Wednesday, May 24th through Monday May 29th, 2017, we had a Selah Sweets vendor booth set up at the Packwood Timberland Library for the Packwood Memorial Day Weekend Flea Market.

This time we brought the E350 Camper Van to sleep in and the 1961 Chinook Travel Trailer to vend out of. It worked out better than the pop-ups and P30 Van we used at the last Packwood Labor Day weekend Flea Market.

The weather was nice other than the wind on Wednesday when we first got there. It was nice to be able to see Mount Rainier from downtown Packwood.

With the heat we sold a lot of Shaved Ice. The fudge sales were not as good as last Labor Day Weekend. Sales over all were great for us and we were business most of the time. Our sons helped us and other vendors too. Our two youngest helped with the trash in the vending area to raise money for Boy Scout Camp.
