TSF Snow Run 1-20-08

I took the Jeep up to Brown's Camp today to see about finding some snow. That wasn't a problem!! We headed up to the top and ran the trails on Firebreak 5, which are a bit more interesting when covered with the "white stuff". We were up there with a few other local folks. One person was in a very stock TJ with 28" road tires on it... He was having problems most of the day (I know....hard to believe that "slicks" don't climb up snow covered hills).

We got all the way up to the Crushers and the snow was really deep...it swallowed one guys 39.5" tires like they were nothing. Anyway...here's a few pics I took of my Jeep while waiting for other folks to get unstuck...oh, and I also got to winch another full sized ford out of the ditch. This guy was a crew cab F-350 on 35's... He was really good at digging holes

Thanks,

It was a good trip, but the group we were up with was too much "Stop and Go" for my liking. Usually if I head up there with my wife on our own, I can cover 4-6 different trails. This time we only hit 2, although one was long with multiple sections. The snow made it fun. I may try and head back up next weekend on my own if the weather stays cold enough to keep the snow up there.

We used to have a good Jeep'n buddy down here, but he sold his rig a couple years ago and we've yet to find another person/group who likes to go up and keep a steady (not fast) pace for the entire day.

Nice pics and nice Jeep. How did the 33x10.50 BFG MTs perform in that snow? I've got 33x12.50 Wrangler MTRs and am probably going to the 10.50 soon. Also will be moving to Portland in a couple of months!

The 33x10.5's did great in the snow. Mine are siped as well, so that may have helped out. But, I just aired them down to 15 psi and they did great. I've been very happy with these tires. They seem to be a great match to my Jeep.

And...when you get to Portland let me know. I'm looking for new folks to go Jeep'n with.
