On April 19th, 2008 we meet up at the Nasty Creek Corrals and aired down. We started by running up Doe Pocket.

It wasn’t to far up we ran into patches of snow. Icesis found the snow was very soft in places and had to which out of one spot. In the Themiddlekid having some trouble with ground clearance in that same area. Themiddlekid decided to turn his Dakota around and head back out. Fatboy escorted him down a ways. We then pressed on. We turned up Jackass road and regrouped.

On up at Ewe Neck we had some problems getting trough the North Slope. Icesis and LayemStr8 made it through first. LayemStr8 was playing as the others worked their way through. Icesis had to be LayemStr8’s anker to winch off of a few times in the same area. Kurt after some trouble getting through. Fatboy got stuck and Colemancooler gave him a pull.

Up on top of the ridge above Ewe Neck LayemStr8 needed a pull. We took a group photo and found Icesis broke a brand new u-joint cap. He did not have a replacement the right size. Everyone helped with the ghetto-fab so he could make it off the mountain. After we got Icesis’s XJ put back together we headed down the mountain. Icesis drove out in 2 wheel drive high range.

Colemancoooler lead the group down and got stuck playing off to the side of the packed road. LayemStr8 got to give him a pull.

On down Jackass road the snow was deep compared to the melted off areas and it was a little hairy.

At the bottom of Jackass road, we turned up Ahtanum North Fork Road and headed to air up at the Ahtanum Sno-park.

This was a great run thanks to the people that came along.

Here are some photos of the Spring Fever 4×4 Run at the Wenas Wildlife Area:

All Wheelers Off Road Club Top Member Challenge

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

On Saturday January 19th, 2008, Eastern Washington Off Road hosted an event for the All Wheelers Off Road Club members for their devotion toward the Eastern Washington Off Road group. This event is called, “All Wheelers Off Road Club Top Member Challenge”, and was held near Cowiche, Washington on Cowiche Ridge.

We had 6 rigs competing. Built-not-bot, BecauseSheLetsMe, Demontang, Dr Turbo, Rednk1980 and Waycrazy. The goal was to race (wheeled ORV of choice) to the top of the ridge through the deep snow and get the challenge marker. The first driver that gets the marker wins the AWORC Top Member award. Benw and Jay W were the judges on this event.

We headed up toward the starting point and had to stop because rednk1980 got stuck. We got going again and Hercules got stuck and found his 4 wheel drive wasn’t working. They got it fix and we were on our way again.

As we climbed the side of Cowiche Ridge, the snow got deeper and softer. We had a few problems with rigs getting through one section. Tiny got stuck twice and Jerry lost a bead. Benw and Jay W winched Tiny. Some guys helped Jerry air up his tire.

On top of Cowiche Ridge, the snowdrifts were huge. The first of many hug snowdrifts was so deep, Punisher’s 44″ tall tires wouldn’t reach the ground. Punisher blew up his Chevy’s front diff on that drift.

The next challenging snow drift was in a section of trees. It took a lot of work and time for rigs to work their way up. There were a lot of rigs winching.

BecauseSheLetsMe won the All Wheelers Top Member Challenge in his 1984 Jeep Cherokee. He won a trophy & an AWORC windshield banner from EWOR, and a 1/4″ thick AWORC logo & weld on bead locks from Ron Palstring.

During the race to the marker, Demontang broke a rear axle on his Ford Ranger. They used a log in place of the wheel to get the rig down to Cowiche Mill Road onto a trailer they had brought up.

Year Ends 4×4 Snow Run – Day 2 of 2
Hosted by Eastern Washington Off Road.
Report by Clay Graham. Photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Off Road

On December 30th, 2007 Eastern Washington Off Road met up in Cowiche at the parking area at the end of the pavement on Cowiche Mill Road to air down. I lead us up onto Cowiche Ridge. Most of our tracks from the day before were gone. I took Tail Gunner before the first big snowdrift since I was in a low rider.

We made it to the place the snow stopped us the day before. The guys tried to push on farther, but no luck, all three stuck. I pulled 2 rigs out with the Tweety Jeep.

As I headed back down the trail, Icesis tried to make his own line and got stuck. Once we were all going things got real fun. In the open we had fun passing each other. Sometimes we couldn’t see from the snow coming blowing onto the hood. We stopped for a break before dropping off the ridge. P309’s CJ was covered with snow.

Down at the gravel pit P309 broke his clutch linkage playing. Icesis winch him up. P309 headed to the trailer with most of the group. Icesis and I ran up to see how the snow was on the road up to Hatton from Cowiche Mill Road. Icesis ran into a big snow drift. Icesis backed up and was able to plow through the snowdrift. He stopped on top of the climb to ask us where the trail was since there was no sign of it. I took the lead breaking trail. Some how Icesis backed up over a stump so used my rig as a tow point and winch off of it. It was getting late so we headed on out.

Thanks to all that came for the fun time.
