Around 10 AM on Sunday December 9th, 2007 we meet up at the Highland Quick Stop in Cowiche for the Eastern Washington Off Road Annual Sledding run. We headed up Cowiche Mill Road and turned off on C1000. This is where we aired down.

We moved on up Cowiche Ridge and got into the forest. We went until Victor’s Bronco lost his brakes after backing down one of the steeper hill climbs he could not make. I walked back up to the XJ to turn around and go back down. Since we had to do some repairs on Victor’s rig we decide to just sled on that slick hill climb.

The kids started sledding, my Lab played in the snow, and we did a little work on the Bronco’s brake line at the Master Cylinder. We did what we could to the Bronco then walked over to check out Fatboy’s TJ with the new 33×12.50 MT/Rs.

Most join in on sledding the down the slick hill and I took photos. It was one fast sledding hill.

We took a group photo and packed up to go. Victor headed back toward home. Fat boy and I found a good spot to put the All Wheelers Off Road Club Top Member Challenge Marker for the event happening in January.

On down the trail we found Victor broke down. It seemed to be a fuel switch problem. They got it running and he was off again. Well for a few miles. I end up towing him back to Cowiche with the XJ. Have you pulled a Ford lately?

This was a fun run for all.

Here are some photos of the Sledding Run at the Ahtanum State Forest:

We wanted to take the kids sledding where there were no crowds of people. We figured there would not be many people on the top of Cowiche Ridge and it would be fun wheeling to get there. So on Sunday December 10th, 2006 members of the All Wheelers Off Road Club and a few others headed up Cowiche Mill Road and made our way up Cowiche Ridge.

Here are some photos of the day:

The sky was opened up and the sun shined down on us. Almost like we were in another land. We did not see any giants or any other danger so we turned our rigs around and unloaded the sleds.
