Snow Wheelin'

4 comments

I made a magical discovery a few years ago...the way to survive the gray drab western WA winters is to get out into the snow. I actually think I prefer winter trips now!! Here's a couple shots of a trip I went on in November, 2017 in the Rainier area.

And your rig usually comes home clean

I don't know about that...:)

Last winter, I went a little snow-crazy and got stuck more often than in my entire life!

 

This year I've been more conservative, and have managed to NOT use the winch all winter!

 

Snow... It's beautiful, but can sure grab & trap a truck in a hurry!

  • Hello, looking for recommendations for areas within a few hours of Sammamish where I can drive in, camp with my boys, and drive out the following afternoon. Looking more for areas of dispersed camping, or primitive campgrounds with no services. Driving a full size crew cab, so overly narrow trails are a no go. Thanks for any insights.
  • I'm looking at doing a couple sections of the WABDR in mid-August, probably 1-2. I'll (2019 JLUR) be joined by friend with his rig (4runner), but neither of us have been on the WABDR before. I have some questions and I hope you can help answer them. I don't know how sections 1-2 compare to the sections further north. Assuming we only have 2-4 days available, are these sections recommended? How many miles per day can one expect to reasonably complete? Not aiming for an all out race, nor ambling on - a reasonable pace to see the views and account for other traffic. Does one need to bring extra fuel, or are there ample opportunities to fuel up in between sections? What is the best navigation guide? Anything I can print, etc.? Thank you kindly. :) - David
  • Might be a tall order but trying to keep my adventure buddy (aka wife) motivated :) Any good routes with dispersed camping along a river or lake? We’ve found lots of great meadows and vistas but have been striking out with water views. Preferably within 3-4 hours of the Seattle area. Thanks in advance!
