Report & Photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets / Eastern Washington Tourism

On Wednesday, August 29th through Monday September 3rd, 2018, we had the Selah Sweets Food Truck set up at the Packwood Timberland Library for the Packwood Labor Day Weekend Flea Market.

We brought over the P30 and the F350 pulling the 1961 Chinook Travel Trailer. It worked out great having both vending units and we had enough ice for the event.

Saturday Gone Fiddling Again came and played out front of Selah Sweets. We want to thank them for playing for us.

The weather was nice over all. Sunday was the hottest day helping with the Shaved Ice sales.

The evening were nice and we spent sometime across the road at the Packwood Brewing Company.

Here are some photos of our time at the Packwood 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.

On Sunday August 31st, 2008 most of the group had to go home and the Tweety Jeep broke down on Saturday’s run so it looked like I had no one to wheel with. Then PUO and The Punisher pulled into our camp at Tree Phones with PUO’s old Chevy Step side that was turned into some type of Monster Buggy thing. We left Tree Phones and ran down the Mid Fork. We turned off and headed up A2400 to Red Saddle and onto the Sedge Ridge 4×4 Trail.

Back at camp Phantom 309 showed up to pick on the Monster Buggy.

We took a run up Whites Ridge. On the way a little diesel pickup joined us. We ran the Whites Ridge Loop and then up the Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail. We found a log across the trail and cut it out after the guys had fun driving over it.

On up the near the end we took a brake and then headed back down to Tree Phones for dinner.

This was a fun crazy time thanks to all that came.

Here are some photos of the day:

99 call an Eastern Washington Off Road 4×4 Run at the Ahtanum State Forest to find some snow. She knew there had to be some up there because we can see the snow from Yakima. Here is our trip.

On Sunday, October 14th, 2007, we started off by running Nasty Creek Road up to the Strobach Mountain 4×4 Trail. We ran into two Jeeps coming down. One was dragging out “rednk1980’s” broken Toyota. Oh what a feeling!

On Strobach Mountain we took a look off at Rimrock and Mount Rainier. Then headed up 4W613 toward Jackass Road. The hill climb before the 4W613 Upper Meadow was a little slick. The Dome Peak Fire Area was nice without all the summer deep dust since it was damp. Climbing up Foundation Ridge from the 4W613 Lower Meadow was a lot of fun with a lot of slick in places. We started to find more snow as we pasted the cattle guard. Up on top of Foundation Ridge at Jackass Road, we took a right and headed toward Blue Slide Lookout.

We stopped at the newly remodeled cabin at Blue Slide Lookout to check it out. It was a lot better then it had been.

Next we when down 4W615 to Blue Lake, then we dropped down to the North Fork Ahtanum Road. We ran it across Darland Mountain. There wasn’t much snow
on the road. Next we ran down to the Sno-park, up A2400, A2420 and onto Sedge Ridge 4×4 Trail. We ran that to the cross above Cultus Hole. There was a great view of the stars.

It was getting late so we ran South Fork Ahtanum Road out and back home.

This was a great wheeling weekend for us. Sand dunes on Saturday and mountain snow on Sunday.

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

On Friday August 31st, 2007 we when up to Tree Phones in the Ahtanum State Forest to set up camp for the weekend.

Saturday we hit the trail around 10 AM. We ran the same trails in two groups. The quads went one way and the rigs the opposite way. We took the rigs from Nasty Creek on up the Strobach Mountain 4×4 Trail. We stopped for a break by the Hogback and then again at the Strobach Mountain Vista. There was a view of Rimrock and Mount Rainier from Strobach Mountain.

We continued up 4W613. We met up with the quads around Dome Peak.

We dropped on down to the lower meadow and started the climb up Foundation Ridge. This part of the trail climbs pretty good and has a lot of obstacles. On on this run was a small tree down on the trail we had to cross. Scuba got hung up on it and his XJ took on some carnage getting off the log. He only lost the rear side window, a door handle, a mirror and added some good dents.

We moved on up 4W613 to the end on top of Foundation Ridge. We turned on Jackass Road and ran it to Blue Slide Lookout. There were some guys rebuilding the Blue Slide Shelter.

We headed down 4W615 to Blue Lake for a short break. We continued on 4W615 and turn down the Blue Lake 4×4 Trail. Right after the gate keeper, Scuba lost a bead on the same tire as many times before. After his last run he got his On Board Air hooked up in case this happened again. They ended up having to take the wheel off the rig to set the beads. We were back on the trail pretty fast.

At the end of the Blue Lake 4×4 Trail, we turn up the Ahtanum North Fork Road and ran it to the top of Darland Mountain. At the top we ran the Forest Service road north to the end for the view looking back toward Blue Lake. After the view, we headed back to camp for the night with on last stop at Eagle Nest.

On Sunday we had less ORVs with us on the trail. We first headed up Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail. We stopped at the view point over Tree Phones and then on top close to the Grey Rock Trail at the Mount Rainier View Point.

Next we headed back down the Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail, on to McLaine Canyon Road, and up the Mid Fork Ahtanum back at camp for lunch. We ran into Hoss on the way.

After lunch we headed down the Mid Fork Ahtanum Road to the Ahtanum Sno-park and then up A2400 to the Sedge Ridge 4×4 Trail. The rocky climb is always fun for most. Luna had a little trouble getting up it with her quad.

Near the Dual Climb, Hoss’s Bronco died. He had some problem starting his Bronco. Hoss turned around and coasted back down the mountain until the trail started climbing. The Bronco would not start until I hook the strap up to it and was going to pull him with the Tweety Jeep. The Bronco fired up under protesting a Jeep pulling it. Hoss drove on out to Sno-park and I head up the mountain to meet Bobstar and Luna.

We met up with Bobstar and Luna near the Cultus Hole View Point. We took a break there and then headed back to camp.

This was a real fun run thanks to to people that came.
