I haven't drove WR since the last Jenny Creek Drift flogging! Guess I better pay some attention to the beast....it's annual "wake it up and let it sing" session is upon us!

All in all it was a good trip and between the 2 of us we got some excellent pictures!

Treeroot has been running(awake) for at least 28 hours so far on 15 min of sleep and he has another 5 hours left of work, THAT'S HARD CORE....for the love of wheeling sacrifices will be made

15 minutes? Sounds like he slept in!

KUDOs to you guys for cleaning up that mess!!! Au contraire, it does not reflect badly on the outdoor public, it reflects famously on the value-added benefit of allowing Rising Sun to adopt the trail!!!!!

In fact, I'm gonna forward the link to Brian Rasmussen and Cat Luna (BRD OHV rangers).

Caring for the land, it's just what we do.

Well done with the trash guys! Is that a kid's 4x4 in the background of the last trash pic? was that up there?

And those drifts look like they're all in the same place they were in last year.. that's cool. Kevin, bring WR out tonight! I want to drive it (just be nice to the 80, k?)

Great Job as usual

I was wondering how deep the snow is up there. WP got hammered this year.

Man, does your 40 look good

Nice job boys. It does suck to come upon camp sites left by inconsiderate bastards like that.

The center spring pin broke. It is about the only thing that keeps the axle centered on the springs. U bolts clamp the two together but....

I upgraded to grade 8 bolts the last time the springs were out! Even used Red locktight!
Maybe metric 10.8s, a spare in the toolbox, and ???

The last pics of the trash were in my yard. We dumped it out to seperate the cans. About 1/3 of the trash came from that campground. The rest was all from the road. We started just past the Moffet Tunnel/Rollins Pass junction and worked up to the first drift.
