On Saturday November 24th, 2012 Eastern Washington Adventures members met up at the Tampico Church for the annual Eastern Washington Adventures Thanksgiving 4x4 Snow Run.

Around 10 AM we convoyed up the South Fork Ahtanum and found a place to pull off to air down. Next we ran the South Fork Road all the way to the end and onto the Sedge Ridge 4x4 Trail. As we climbed the snow got deeper. The hill just before the Duel Climb stopped us. A few tried but could not make it up. As we watched, the Quad Squad came up behind us. They found the snow was also to powdery for them to get though. We all turned around and headed down to the Ahtanum Winter Rec Trailhead (AKA Sno-park).

Next our group headed up Jackass Road. Just before Ewe Neck we found some of our club members were up having a family day sledding. We stopped to talk with them awhile then headed on. The snow was deep in the Ewe Neck area. We made it up to the log decks to find big drifts. It was getting late for the other trails we wanted to run, so we turned around. We stopped to see sledders as we headed back down the mountain toward Nasty Creek Corrals.

At Nasty Creek Corrals TJ40 and BlindPilot aired up for home. The rest of us headed on up Nasty Creek Road and came out on Cowiche Mill Road. We aired up and headed out. We all stopped at the Highland Quick Stop before heading down to US12.
