NW snow wheeling 2011/2012

Since the snow wheeling season is here I thought I'd post the first pictures. Hope you have fun in the snow this winter. I know I will.

We came around the corner and saw him like that. Something broke in the front on the passenger side and yanked the wheel to the right and he hit the bank and over it went. Only damage was a dented fender and broken side window. He was fine. Just laughed about it.

Ok, I've been bugging my crew that we need to put a snow run together. So now I know it's deep enough.

How far did you make it? We went up 4610 on the 19th and I ended up breaking a cross pin in the diff at the lower gravel pit. Nobody had been past that point in knee deep perfect powder.

Only picture that I got from that day



We went up the back way which had a lot more snow on it than the road from Promintory.

I would be up for some snow wheeling in January if anyone is heading up in the Seattle area and has room for an FJ40 in their caravan.

we made it all the way up to the washout and then turned around. it was pretty late in the day so attempting the washout wasnt an option.
