NIMAC Winter Challenge 18

A few weeks back we shared some photos of our adventures in Northern Idaho when we went up to watch the North Idaho Mud And Crawl and Insanity Fab’s Winter Challenge. Now as I may have mentioned I’m not much of a spectator, but after a couple of laps, I was very glad I wasn’t on the course as it was pretty brutal. They say a picture tells a 1000 words, well here’s a few videos that definitely tell a much larger story… Needless to say we had a lot of fun watching these guys thrash their rigs!

Cowiche Mill is Muddy Going to FS 1302 instead

Whoa doggie! We just got a report that Cowiche Mill’s got mud up to 3000 feet. So we’re calling an audible and changing locations to FS 1302 off of Highway 12.

Which means we will bypass Freddys in Yakima and go straight to Naches for fuel in the morning. Meeting near the market… Please Chime in and acknowledge this change and share with anyone you know that is going!

9 am by the Market in Naches, see you there…

 

FS 1302 allows us to get higher and into the snow faster. Report was expect spring snow conditions, no base and little packing…

What Goes Up, Must Come Down!

Read the complete Run Report for more on the trip, and watch the video and experience the ride down for yourself. Deep fluffy snow can be an off roader’s dream, or nightmare, we think we caught it somewhere in the middle, but the snow made us work for every mile we made it up that hill, after about 4 1/2 hours up there the sun was fading and we all decided it was time to get off that mountain. As you see we got to the bottom in the dark…

Apologies for the added noise, apparently my dash camera’s mic is sensitive to the defroster running on high, it was really cold up there after all…
