I think you are right about that.

But it was very powdery on the other side of the cattle guard.

That's a great picture of my hood in the last shot.

bobthetj03 Cont....
Well, things proceeded to get more interesting as Gene became the next victim to the evil cow bell! Truth be known, Gene tried his damnest to get stuck and finally succeeded!


A little help from friends.

And the carnage continued. Next!

Yep, more...


We finally made it to Uncle Tom's Cabin.

It was busy, so we went to the overflow parking, lol!

We proceeded to keep going after UTC to see how far we could get. In retrospect, we should have went back from UTC, but hey, what fun would that be!


Then it was leep frog the rest of the way back due to traffic.

Good times!

bobthetj03 So many jeeps! We rolled into Georgetown, and it looked like a jeep invasion had taken over the town! Jeeps left in waves towards the snow! Our wave lined up just before the snow got thick to air down and prepare for the upcoming craziness!


Stumpy Meadows was a beautiful site as we passed over the dam.

Our group of 8 were well under way when the fun began with our first casulty. I gladly gave up my curse of the cow bell to said recipient!


A little tug is all it took to get us moving as the adventure continued.

Of course, one must stop to behold the awesomeness of the beautiful country we are blessed with in NorCal!

More to come......

Sweet thank you for the offer! I'll go out today and pick up a pair. I've been slacking on getting them for awhile and this is a good motivation. I'm excited this will be my first run.

bobthetj03 We're taking off at 3:30 as well. Work is dragging!

That sucks dude! Well, not for your dad, happy birthday to him! Was hoping you'd caravan up with me and a couple other jeepers!
