Hopefully we'll get another run up here. I wont have time at all this month with work and family functions. After the New Year I'd like to. Tim will have to get over his being scared of colder weather and take a day off work.

We'll probably have to wait at least until next month, to get a few more storms in. We do want it to be challenging right?

I'm not scared of colder weather, but I'm not taking any days off to go play in the snow.  We can go on a Sunday.

And before the thought comes to you, no we're not driving down there either.  :flipoff:

But if you want to start your own snow run, feel free.

I'll follow along, in this thread, LOL. I'm not going to say I will go for sure, but I'll think about it. I'm not into snow anymore. I like being all warm and fuzzy! :D

IF I decide to go, should I have chains? Obviously I have 4wd, but not sure if chains are something I should start looking for?

You don't need chains. You'll want to air down a little, so a good compressor would be good. And what I mean about good, is one you don't run from the cigar lighter. It's something you should have anyway. :thumbsup:

Something like this one:

Oh, Jeez. Now this is going to turn into a compressor thread. :shaking:

Cool. I have a compressor and it hooks to the battery. It successfully aired up my tires the last time I went wheelin'. :D

I also have a set of tire deflators.

We need to get someone up there to tell us how the snow is. My guess is we will need to wait a while for the snow to accumulate more. Hopefully late next month or early February.

I put axles from a v8 and factory lockers, d44a rear. Better gear ratio as well. I said open because I took it on strawberry pass trail and under pressure it acted like they were open on the bigger boulders, I had to turn back. No winch and by myself

I'm pretty sure there hasn't been enough snow up there to make it worth while. But there seems to be a weeks worth of snow coming up.

This is a constantly updating forecast for where we usually go.

https://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lon=-120.70346963572801&lat=39.44419878080939

Maybe we can get someone who lives up there to check it out for us.  :knock:  :cheers:

we will probably end up on WWS right at the plow line.  Borrowed a set of 47s from a buddy so its going to be party time.   Day215 might show up, few other toyotas and a samurai

Change of plan ish.  We are going to tow the rigs up icehouse and park at plow line.  Usually itís half mile or so past the loon turnoff. 

We will then wheel to airport flats and as far in the trail as we can get. 

Most likely meeting at fresh pond and heading out from there

There's a big storm coming starting tonight through Thursday. But we still don't know what the snow accumulation is like up there. If we get a good report, maybe we could shoot for the 26th or Feb. 2nd.

I have 3-4 rigs that are looking to go on Sat. they are just waiting to see what the storm does on Fri. If I have 8"-9" at my house in Nevada City we will probably do a more local run vs. WWS. I will post something on Friday. Also, this weekend might be the Winter Fun Fest up here. Although I (we) wouldn't be a part of their run it's always fun to go out and get in front of the slow moving train.

Well that kind of sucks. With the Winter fun fest on the weekend of the 24th, That would leave Super Bowl Sunday.
Tim? Jason? anyone else?

On the positive side, there probably won't be anyone else up there.

My bro and I will be at the meet Sat am.  We will likely stay at Airport Flats that night sampling various types of whiskey. I will be at the fun fest volunteering Sat.  If the niners are in the Super Bowl,  I am obligated to stay home and wear my lucky hat.

I'm working on guys right now. We would be coming from Grass Valley so we would just have to meet you at Airport Flat. Not going all the way to Fresh Pond.

Yes, WFF is next week. I work Sundays

Well I have confirmed 3 rigs possibly two more for tomorrow. We will be leaving Grass Valley around 7:30ish, collect one of the rigs in Georgetown and top off. We'll push to Airport Flat and hopefully meet up with you there. Guess that all depends on how long it takes everyone. Ultimately we are gonna try and get to WWS campground and have a BBQ.

Hopefully we'll all meet up.

It was a great weekend up there ! Met Chris/Daniel at fresh Pond. We all went to plow line.  Great turnout for that group.  I think they made it to Ellis Creek.

I splintered off and meet another group at Airport Flats .  It was slow going with that group of about 12 keeps. We got to WWS for lunch and ended up staying there for 4 hours

Sat was beautiful weather.  Sunday was warmer and blue skies . Was a bit over a foot of snow at plow line . Maybe two feet at WWS .  Chris mentioned snow was about 4 after Ellis Creek.

Here is the group at WWS

our little group met up with them at WWS. BBQ some food had some drink. Somewhere at Mile's camp I lost my Yeti Coozy. Damn it, now I have to make a separate trip up there to find it. Followed Dieck and his group out back to their camp. One of out guys was a bit retarded and broke a brake line so we had to do a trial repair on that. Same fool later slid into the guard rail by UTC and sliced a sidewall.

Got to BS with Daniel and Chris as they came back from Ellis

I do need to replace the rear axle seals, both are leaking but the fluid looks good. All in all, it was a good day. Hopefully I will put together another run next month.

Any option for the 1st? Just wondering how many would actually go on SB Sunday?

How many going?

2) Tim
3) Jason
4) Lee (Jason Buddy)

I'm ok with it. Kim is having newbie issues, and Dan only gets one weekend a month off. He has next weekend off, but that's the Winter Fun Fest weekend, and that will be a circus. Hopefully the road will be empty.

Well the weather underground calendar shows the 2nd as clear and warm. But they only predict that far out for the airport.

https://www.wunderground.com/calendar/us/ca/sacramento/KSMF/date/2020-2

Last year we met up at:

Gold Flat Express Lube & Car Wash
421 Hollow Way, Nevada City, CA 95959

Which also has a Port-O-Subs in the station. And they make some good sandwiches.

I think we need to get going early, because it's only light for so long these days. I think I could be there by about 9am. What does everyone else think?

Well the weather underground calendar shows the 2nd as clear and warm. But they only predict that far out for the airport.

https://www.wunderground.com/calendar/us/ca/sacramento/KSMF/date/2020-2

Last year we met up at:

Gold Flat Express Lube & Car Wash
421 Hollow Way, Nevada City, CA 95959

Which also has a Port-O-Subs in the station. And they make some good sandwiches.

I think we need to get going early, because it's only light for so long these days. I think I could be there by about 9am. What does everyone else think?

What is the confirmed date then?

Yep, thought for sure he was gong to roll it. We were only 100 yds in. We retreated to an easier trail for about an hour then they settled their nerves at the Virginia City Brewery. I just went home as I don't drink.

It says 1-3 inches snow, that doesn't sound too bad to me.

So Sunday morning at 9am at:

Gold Flat Express Lube & Car Wash
421 Hollow Way, Nevada City, CA 95959

Which also has gas and a Port-O-Subs in the station. And they make some good sandwiches.

Where do you go from there? Is it necessary to go into Nevada City or is there an alternative place for me to meet the goup?

You're not getting to N. Bloomfield Rd. without going to Nevada City.  There's no need to go into downtown, exit at Gold Flat Rd, go right and immediately left onto Hollow Way and the gas station is about 1/4 mile down on the right.

Robert and I are still in and I've got a rider.  Sean told some other people on a facebook group where we were meeting up so we could have others show up but I don't know.
Title: Re: Snow Trip?
Post by: Mr.B on February 01, 2020, 05:52:45 PM
I'll have a rider also.

Jason, It's pretty easy to get to where we meet. Your Exit is 185A, Gold Flat Rd, Ridge Rd. Make a Right at the stop sign, then a real quick left. You'll be on the frontage road and it'll be on your right.

So I locked this thread since the trip is over. I may open it up again, since winter isn't over yet. Let me know if someone wants to plan another trip.

 Sean I started a trip report with your last post.
