EWA Pine Mountain New Year 4x4 Snow Run (Jan 1st, 2009)
 
Pine Mountain New Year 4x4 Snow Run
Report and photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures

On Thursday January 1st, 2009 we meet up in Tampico for our New Years Run.
This year again BSLM let us come up to his private land on Pine Mountain at the Ahtanum State Forest.

We aired down at Nasty Creek Corrals.

With Roger in the lead with BSLM as co-pilot.

We were not far onto the private land when Roger had to air down even more to get through.

This picture was taken right before I got stuck in Roger's holes.

Test Dummy pulled my XJ out and got in front of me since his XJ is locked on both ends and taller off the ground.

We had to wait for Roger to plow through the snow drifts.

Test Dummy got stuck in one of the deep drifts and had to winch out.

I made it through with speed. Tiny got stuck in it.

Test Dummy got stuck in the next drift. Roger came back to see.

After talking with BSLM, Test Dummy aired down to 2 psi.

The Tampico boys dug Tiny's XJ out.

I think Test Dummy was able to drive out. He came back to pull my XJ through.

Then he pulled Tiny's XJ through the same area.

Some of us that were up the hill circled back down to the group so we could go on a recovery mission.

We regrouped and headed down the mountain.
A lady's car was stuck some where down there.

http://easternwashingtonadventures.c...anum-01-36.jpg

We made it down to the car.
http://easternwashingtonadventures.c...anum-01-37.jpg

http://easternwashingtonadventures.c...anum-01-38.jpg

We got the car out and were on our way back up the mountain.

Regrouping.

The next area was a lot of fun.
I came very close to smacking a few trees with my 99 XJ as I crab walked along the hill side.
I could not make the turn up the hill so I had to spin the rear down hill so I could hit the climb straight on.
That work well. Will a few runs and RPMs we made it up. Here's Roger on the top.

The rest of the group took another route to the top.

Regrouping again.
http://easternwashingtonadventures.c...anum-01-48.jpg

As you can see, Ron (4wheelingplus.com) does not fit to well in my XJ.
http://easternwashingtonadventures.c...anum-01-49.jpg

Heading out.
