Just throwing this idea out there, but....

Next ride will be the "Search for Snow" ride. Either Wheeler Pass or up through the Sheep Mountains (north of Las Vegas). Im thinking it would be on the 20th of November, the weekend before Turkey Day! Tell me what you think...

Sheep Mountains from last year:

Wheeler pass is a good ride no challenge what so ever when it isnt snowy, but i could only get so far in the winter:






I'd be down to bring the waggy most likely. As I said, I remember it being a super mellow trail without snow, and just a slippery trail WITH snow. If we got a few rigs, I'll see how the beast fares! (Hopefully wont blow a oil line this time, haha)

Tow points.



























Everything else just makes life a little easier (MT tires, lift, etc).

Edit: You dont really need four wheel drive four Wheeler Pass. Its just an old road that they dont maintain anymore. The road that goes up through the Sheep Mountains (my pics above) are pretty well maintained overall. They are just a bit rocky at points. Both roads are just nice trails that run through the back country.

Something I stumbled across for a possible future run - Titus Canyon, which is on the NV/CA border near death valley. They close it down when it gets snowed out though so might have to wait for the spring. Anyone done this one before?

Titus canyon is an easy high clearance 2wd trail. Starts off near beatty, NV. You see old mines, foundations, and other things. Very scenic, not hard at all. At the end of the trail it lets you onto the main Death valley road. Scottys castle is a short drive north.

Hmm, sounds like a nice low key trail. I've never heard of it.

I used to have a Nevada Offroad/Recreation atlas, but I lost it at some point after I sold the TJ.
