On Saturday March 15th, 2014 Jeeps came from miles around to King’s Row for the Selah Jeep Cruise sponsored by King’s Row and Eastern Washington Adventures. This event turned out to be more of a meet & greet and flex show than a cruise.

There was a big turnout. Some drove over 100 miles to come to this event.

There was a lot of Pacific Northwest 4 Wheel Drive Association members that showed up from a hand full of different clubs. The clubs that had members show that I know of were from the Yakima Ridgerunners, Yakima Valley Timberwolves, Shindig Wheelers, Tri-Cities Peak Putters and North East Oregon 4 Wheelers. There could have been more PNW4WDA club members there.

There were a few other clubs/groups that had members there. Gleed Boys, Off-Camber and Eastern Washington Adventures.

King’s Row gave out tokens for free meals and sodas to the first Jeepers that showed up.

Build-it Offroad came with a big buggy they built. It was very big and cool!

A lot of rigs flexed out on the RTI ramp. James Harter (Shindig Wheelers) was the RTI ramp judge. King’s Row donated prizes for the most flex. Some left before the scores were in so the runners up received the prize.

Thank you to all who came out, all who volunteered and to King’s Row for making this a real fun event!

Note:
King’s Row host a lot of events throughout the year and has very good food. They are located at 210 S 1st St, Selah, WA. They are also on the web and Facebook.

Ahtanum ORV Trails Clean Up

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

10 AM Saturday July 26th, 2008, we met up at the Ahtanum Sno-park to set up for the Ahtanum ORV Trails Clean-up we hosted with cooperation from the DNR. We had a big turn out. There were a lot of Eastern Washington Off Road and All Wheelers Off Road Club, some members of PNW4WDA, Lower Valley Canyon Crawlers, Jeeping Nomads, Peak Putters, Ridgerunners, Tuff Enuf Cascade Crawlers, Outlaws, Washington ATV Association and some other caring people. There were 58 volunteers total on the ORV Trails sign-in list.

The Ski Benders also had a clean-up the same day as we did. They took the North Fork Road to clean-up along with the Big Bowl. I am not sure what other Snowmobile areas they worked in.

My group (Ceg, 99, Monster, Bubz, Doc, Odo, Soggymountain and Mrs. Soggymountain) cleaned up the Whites Ridge trails. The first trail we ran was the Whites Ridge Loop trail starting at the bottom off the Mid Fork. We found a tire on Whites Ridge Loop Trail. We turned up the Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail and ran up to Norm Check Point for lunch. After lunch we ran Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail to the end to start that trails clean-up for the top down. One section of the Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail didn’t have much to pick up since the loggers widened the trail burying what could have been there. Another trail turned into a Hi-way. We ran Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail back down to Whites Ridge Loop, McLaine Canyon Road and on to the Ahtanum Mid Fork back down.

Back at base camp people started coming in with a lot of trash. We loaded up two trucks and took the trash to the dumpster.

We had a big Potluck BBQ after everyone was back at camp.

It was great to have so many caring people come out. Thank you to all that came to help and support this Ahtanum State Forest trails project.

On April 14th, 2007 Colemancooler and I went and met up with the Peak Putters Club at the Ahtanum Sno-park. I drove the RV up and Colemancooler drove up his Toyota. We pulled in sometime around 11 PM. We BSed with Roman to around 1 AM.

Saturday morning we headed up the Mid Fork Ahtanum Road with the Peak Putters. They had a special DNR permit to go up to Darland Mountain.

The snow started getting deep right above Tree Phones. Colemancooler found he needed to let more air out of his tires.

On up the road we found Roman stuck. The snow was washed away under where he was driving. Old Green was about to pull Roman’s rig when he started having problem keeping his rig running. Old Green’s battery was getting low so Commando14 came around to jump him if needed. Old Green got his rig running and pulled Roman out. We could hear Roman yelling at Old Green to stop as he slid down to the road.

The snow started getting real deep toward Eagle Nest. We got up to Clover Flats and Old Green’s rig was having problems. Old Green got his rig running again and we headed on up to the top of Darland Mountain.

Up on top of Darland the snow was real deep with big drifts. On the way back down the mountain, we stopped for lunch and then played some.

Back at camp we had some killer tacos around a nice warm camp fire. Colemancooler had to leave that night.

Sunday my son was going to come up and escort our old RV home because we still have a few bugs to work out. He had to work so he sent Roll Over to follow me home. Lucky Roll Over had some tools because we had some fan belt problems on the way out.

This was a great run. Thank you Peak Putters for letting me tag along. Thank you Colemancooler for the ride.
