Having a Blast Out of Kittitas!
(Tamers 5/22/2021 tipping toeing through the green dotsâ€¦)
I suppose there are some in the Tamers, used to more (ahem) â€śvigorousâ€ť wheeling (trees, mud, big rocks to climb, body damage, rolls, etc.) might view the green dot roads as somewhat tame. (which â€“ I donâ€™t see the problem â€“ we are Tame-ers â€“ after allâ€¦) But â€“ this day we did have all of the requisite parts and pieces of a trail run â€“ use of 4WD, AND low range; sidewalls gashed out, PNW pinstriping and general trail rash, 2 rigs needing winching to avoid a memorable roll down an open mountainside – and probably one last bunch of hillclimbs on an open-faced ridge trail that probably caused some folks some degree of VRI. (Thatâ€™s Vinyl Rectal Inversion â€“ where your butt cheeks become a traction aid clamping onto your seat covers, willing you secure attachment to if not terra firma â€“ at least terra-seataâ€¦.

The Timber Tamers have been really blessed over the past couple of months to have something like 8 new people contact us with an interest in joining our 4-wheeling club.

One evening while watching YouTube I saw a video about Cumberland Pass and when I researched a little more found there was no gate. FINALLY!!! Taking a look at the maps a little more they showed the route ending at Segelson Sno Park or Finney Creek Sno Park. I am thinking I have a snow run.

There was a lot scheduled for Walker Valley this day,Â so I thought I would get up there and help in any way that I could. Now being a 2nd shifter the meeting time was a bit early for me so I set my alarm. Casey decided it was going to be too early to cold and too snowy so she was staying home..LOL I really didnâ€™t think we would see very much snow. Oh how wrong I would be.

The snow storm was reported to be coming in Friday night at about 10pm. I decided to try to put together a run up to Beckler river rd after my swing shift schedule Friday night.
