What to bring:

Snow tires required, AWD or not.

warm clothes for snow.

We will have provisions for fire and camp stoves. We generally have a meet/greet type gathering at the beginning then off on your own or with small group for driving and tree gathering.

 

Things people can bring.

 

*Food, for themselves

*Firewood, for the group. If you wish to purchase a bundle of wood. This can be done @ the Greenwater store or most of the convenience type stores along Hwy410.

*Water, for themselves and group

*BYOB

*Clothes for wet or cold

*Shovel for digging out of the snow

*Saw for cutting down tree. The Forest Service recommends hand saws.

*Tree permits will be available @ the Ranger station down the road. $10.00

*Snow tires & chains. These are technically required to be in the vehicle at all times. They have issued tickets in the past. Our groups have not been checked. Play this how you choose.

*And most importantly... the willingness to have a fun time.

 

This run has been going on for a long time. We have had very few issues over the years because we have a few rules that are not bendable. ******************tery on the public hwy will not be tolerated. Our families and children are present. Once you are off the beaten path you can do as you please. But when we are in the group please realize that you are representing all of us. All are welcome. We have Subaru, Toyota, Jeep, Dodge and many other makes over the years.

Which car are you bringing? I might have a mounted set of snows (5x100 bolt pattern) that I can lend you. My schedule (and the cold) prevent me from going, but if my tires make it there, I can be there in spirit.

And THAT would be the spirit we expect Ed. I already told him I have a set that will fit his car. :clap:

Are we stopping for permits or is the office open before 9?

 

Trying to make this one even though it's the wife's birthday. She agreed to go if I watch Season 4 of Real Housewives of New Jersey with her and take her out to dinner after the run.

 

Oh the sacrifices one must make to get their family out into the great outdoors!:-p
