Feb 19th, Snow Run

Group,
I am praying that by Feb 19th we have enough snow to have a decent snow run at Jack's Pass (or other location if we have enought interst in moving the location).

The intent would be a Family Oriented snow run (bring sleds). Meeting at the Dutch Cup at 9:00am (tentatively) and getting back down to the Monroe area by 6:00pm ish. Stock or Modified rigs welcome.

Recommend:
Chains, plenty of food, plenty of warm clothes, and tow points front and back.

Michael

Talking Re: Feb 19th, Snow Run

I'm in!! Not sure about Andy, yet...but I'm there!! I want to drag my oldest son along this time too to ride in my right seat. I know Jason was getting "Itchy Butt Syndrome" riding over there (not driving). Maybe I can spark some interest in another kid!!

Andy's brother may want to come along with his Quad. He hasn't decided (yet).

Re: Feb 19th, Snow Run

LOL. I will be there if I can get the day off. Mark, I will PM you shortly about lifts.

Danielle wants to shop for some 4-wheelers. She has wanted one as long as I have known her. But we need to pay some bills off first. She might get her new toys next year.

Re: Feb 19th, Snow Run

The Dutch Cup is in Sultan (just on the north side of Hwy 2).

People can get gas in Monroe before getting there, it has a very large parking lot and seeting inside for meeting groups of people, it is easy to find, hard to miss (large blue and white windmill), and easy to get on and off of Hwy 2 for groups of vehicles.

great to have you with us.

Michael

You can eat where ever you want
Yes, I would guess if there is no snow we will head to Reiter Pit.

Re: Feb 19th, Snow Run

Maybe I should get the 31's on order. How much rubbing would I get with the 31" retread MT on my factory wheels?

Re: Feb 19th, Snow Run

I doubt you will have much rubbing with a RE 3.5 inch lift which gives you about 4-4.5 inches of lift. I rub my coil towers and rock rails with a metric 32 inch swamper on a actual 3 inch lift. So I wouldn't worry about it.

Plus there is only one way to find out. Wheel it and see if Andy will bring his portable saws-all.

Jason,
I would put a few miles on those 30's you got (they are close to new aren't they). You might decide to go higher or stuff larger tires or may decide you want a different tire by the time you need them. I put that money into more protection, skids, etc, etc. The difference between the 30 and 31 is not going to be significant.

Just my .02
Michael

Easy solution, go to Levenworth, Wenatche or Chellan for the weekend, take the motorhome and do some wheeling with us on the way

We will miss you again.
