yes, I think as Andy would say, it "sucked".

what started out as just a "rinse" job of the Jeep before i parked it in garage turned in to a full blown wash down.... has to live up to it's nick name of "Garage Queen" I guess.

I'm thinking next time we need to try the same road only come from the Randall side first.

We either need to wait for a major thaw, or find somewhere without snow!

after having to fight with my GPS software a few hours last night and again this morning, I finally got is working so I could download the route out of the GPS. The software has a "view in google earth" option.

This shows our initial route off Skate Creek road in the snow, as well as two waypoints marking the distance traveled up the road on 2/2 and 1/26. on 1/26 we made it about 1.47 miles further.

enjoy:

I don't think we would have made it all the way with the snow we saw. Look at the route continuing higher on the right. We only got as far as the far left of the image.I will use this feature in the future

If I'm looking at the same route you show above, the high mark (elevation) shows about 4429.... so yes, there's NO way we'd have made it.
