Snow Run! (annual?)

I had an idea awhile back when trying to figure out how to get us all together during the colder months.

How about a full day snow run? Load up lots of wood and food and go make a bon fire up in the hills. The kids can play in the snow and we can see how fords do in real snow, not the kind of snow we get down at 1000' hahaha.


Anyone got a good place to go? I know Mt. hood is awesome for this, but its quite a drive for Washington people. Im up for driving up into washington to do something!
Ive got a set of 4 chains so ill be able to go deep into the mountains

I want a winch before I get into anything that deep in the middle of nowhere.

Austin you dont need a winch when there are other trucks around!!! If your climbing up the roads and start to really have a tough time you can always just stop or go back down.... its not like your going to get insanely stuck.

But yeah id like to find a good spot like that. By the way welcome to the CCR!

I am down with a run up to Hurricane Ridge every winter. If the fat girl can make it so can all of the skinny trucks. Hell the fat girl made it through winter 08 in spokane when they had 6 feet of snow while Shan was there.
