    ok the date is now set we are going the 12th of DEC we will meet at 9:30am
    at the Fred Meyers in sandy
    (16625 362nd ave sandy,OR 97055 this is the addy so you can do map find if
    you want if not it right off hwy 26 as you first come in to sandy on the
    right) plan to leave the parking lot at 10:00am sharp we will find out who
    all wants a permit for trees at fred meyers (you can buy a permit early if
    you want at any ranger station if not the parking lot of fred meyers is next
    to the sandy ranger station) we will head up hwy 26th toards
    MT Hood till we get to ZigZag then up toards lolo pass and about 3mills or
    so up that road there is a place we will use as a stageing area were
    trairles will be abel to park. but be ready we will still have a littel dive
    up the road on pavment so be prepaired for that but once we hit the snow we
    can air down and lock in.we will go up in and can deside what we want to do
    up there depending how deep the snow is there is lots of sper roads we can
    play on.


    things to bring warm cloths of cores tow point front and back might need to
    help some one in front or back of you straps that are safe (saw a few straps
    that need to be replaced at the mud bog) a saw for a tree(I will have one if
    you forget or dont got one) chains for your tuck if you feal you might need
    them. and last but not least a good mood this will be a good family run and
    make sure you and your passengers know we will be stoping to help each other
    so at time it can be slow going.also bring your sleds if you like for the
    kids I find out if we can have a fire whill we aer up there so the kids and
    adults can stay warm.

    and a side note if you want to go but your rig is down please speak up we
    can more then likely find you a seat to ride in please come one come all
    this should be fun for all

    One way or the other! If I don't show up in my /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif I'll wheel the /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif (yeah, I bought the one I drove to your place last time). It's only got 2 1/2" of lift and 33" mud tires, but it does pretty good on it's own. No wild stuff in it 'cause it's my DD. One way or the other, I'll be there for sure! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif


    Oh yeah, sometimes I hook sleds and tubes to the back of my rig and pull the kids. I go slow so that if they fall off, then can get right back on. Do you think anyone would have a problem with this? If so, I won't do it, but it's something my kids LOVE.

    Good times...

    We were almost at the end of the trail and was climbing a steep hill going around a corner in about 1 foot of snow as all. My truck started bouncing violently as I got on it. I let off and tried it again this time I heard the metallic sound of the driveline hitting various parts of the undercarriage. Cracked one lift block and broke the driveline as well as the u-joint.

    A guy in a silver Toyota winched himself up the hill, while pulling me with just front wheel drive with my keeper strap. Drove her home in front wheel drive with no problems. Thanks again to Mudhog for making sure I got home ok.
