Run to Snoqualmie Saturday 30 Oct 10

This is an open invitation to join a WAVJC run. See rules below.
We are going to attempt to go from FR70 over to Easton then to Snoqualmie or FR70 over to Stampede Pass then to Snoqualmie all on forest roads. Crappy ones at that. Meet at Enumclaw Safeway at 0800. Be prepared for winter conditions. Reliable vehicle, No alcohol, No playing with guns.

What do I need on trail runs?

Driver's license

Proof of Insurance for you and the rig you are driving

Valid / current vehicle registration for the rig you are driving

Recovery points (tow hooks or shackles), preferably front and rear, so someone can assist from the front or back of your rig.

Hi-Lift style jack

Fullsize spare tire (no temporary spares, or spares that don't work on your rig)

Tow strap

Gloves

Basic tools

First aid kit

Parking brake that works

Functional CB radio

Seat belts for all people in your rig

Fire Extinguisher

FUEL!!!!! and enough of it to get you there and back... some trips may not encounter a fuel stop along the route.

Money (cash) !! (to buy more fuel, or food, or whatever!)

Additional Items recommended for winter/Snow runs:

Warm gloves, and a spare pair

Extra jacket, or maybe a rain jacket.

Ski Pants help to stay dry and warm

Boots

Towel or two - helps to dry off your jacket when it gets snow covered!

Front and rear recovery points are pretty much a MUST for snow runs!!!

Shovel for removing snow from around your tires when you get stuck

Willingness to AIR DOWN - makes a huge difference in handling

Tire chains

Yup, Have you been on these roads on this route before? It's definately different. I've done naches and manastash trails all summer long.

Actually that sounds like fun, there are a ton of roads you miss driving straight to the trails. I've been up the 3300 from manastash to cle elum. I've also explored the fs rd 73 74 75 network south of green water. There must be a lot more in the fs 70 area between green water and naches?

Route is now 72 miles. I found my old dualsport GPS tracks. Alot not on maps and if I remember correctly, wide enough for a Jeep and a rough going. Plus I added Tinkham on the way out. I think I'm bringing halfdoors. Rain forecast is for late evening Saturday.

Ok, Now I actually understand. I knew there were FS roads south of Easton and the Cabin Creek area, but I didn't know they connect to Green Water. I figured you'd run into the watershed or something. You'll have to post the route.
