Event: New Years 2015 Hangover Run (Washington)

Steve and I are going snow wheeling out by Darrington somewhere New Years day. We'll probably be meeting in town at 9am. There isn't a lot of snow right now, and what snow there is may have turned to sugar with all this cold we've had. But at least there is some snow this year.

We'll really be winging it this year. With the late start to the season, I have no idea what's open. I'm sure we can find some snow somewhere though.

This is a very unofficial run. Anyone is welcome to come along with the understanding that this is not a newbie run and we are not there to babysit. We of course always look out for one another, but I don't want to spend all day helping someone that refuses to let the air out of their tires.

If you 100% want to join us, and know you can get out of bed on time, post up. I'll confirm details tomorrow evening.

I haven't really had a chance to look at the maps, so I'm open to suggestions as well.

Ok, doesn't look like we've got anyone going. If you're in the d-town area give a holler. I'll be on cb & fm radio channel 4. We'll be stopping at the gas station in darrington briefly around 9am and figuring out where to go from there.

I'll check in here a few times this evening and in the morning when I get up. Otherwise, be safe and have a happy new year!

We covered a lot of ground looking for something new and exciting. All in all, it was long day with a lot of driving, but it was good to be out!

Plan A was a bust and tank trapped just where the snow was starting. Plan B road was half gone with a giant root ball on the remaining road. We decided it wasn't worth the effort to clear for an unknown payoff.

Since we were in the area we bombed over Rat Trap Pass.

Had lunch at the top of Rat Trap Pass
Image

Image

Stopped just shy of a nice hole!
Image

Image

On to plan D, E, F... Came across this kid. He said the group he was with left him. What should have taken 2 seconds to get him back on the road took forever due to the ice and his craptacular Cherokee. He was bit out of his element for sure.
Image

Hey what's that down there?
Image

Yep a jeep...
Image

Finally got up to some serious sugar snow. Had to take it super easy and idle along
Image

Image

Running out of daylight so we called it a day
Image

Image

Image

Another stuck vehicle. They just got out after we pulled up. The one car had to back down to a turn around spot.

I dig the video and the angle. Are you using a Go Pro to shoot? If so, which one?

Thanks for the complement.
Yes it's a Gopro, not the latest or greatest just a "hero 2". I don't think the new ones have enough "new" to justify upgrading, although a bit smaller would be cool. If I was looking to buy one on a budget I would not hesitate to buy an older used one.

Ive been thinking about buying one myself. I use some old water, sand, snow, Kurtis proof camera. I won it at a Christmas party a few years ago so I can complain too much. Amazon has Go Pro Heros for $130. Wife says Ive bought enough stuff for the truck lately though...
