ok for those of you that dont like to pay to wheel, we are shooting for a snow run in Butte Meadows. for that weekend. There are cabins available to rent right in Butte Meadows, or you can stay down the Hill in Chico. Bambi Inn in butte meadows is a bar and restaurant. You can walk from your cabin to Bambi Inn, or you can stagger from Bambi inn to your cabin:grinpimp:
For those of you that went to wentworth springs.....there is alot more snow up here!!! Let me know who is wanting to come up, and if you want a cabin. I can get with the owner of the bambi inn, to get a good rate on the cabins

Will be there list

:) This is real inviting, because I used to own a tire shop in paradise and we always went straight up towards Philbrook and I had a cabin in Sterling city that was our "way point"

Heh Heh, after spending money/time at the Lovelock Inn for "refreshments" !!

current report shows just about 5 feet of snow right now..... only problem with going in in the Inskip area is all the tweekers and just general retards on their 53" boggers have that area so tore up, and there is 10 times the traffic going in over there.

I definitely need to get my front end checked out.. My steering has a very "loose" feeling to it and I'm thinking it's from all the snow runs.. Namely, from following in the trough/tracks from other Jeeps (the troughs zigzag back and forth - at times it's like downhill skiing in moguls).. It puts a great deal of lateral force on the front tires/wheels and I think it is wearing down (something) at an accelerated rate!

Yes it is!!! Snow wheeling is very hard on the Jeep! My shit can't just be tightened up to fix it, parts must be installed!! Which means money must be made....and since my work is 24-7 and the overtime is there for the taking I've got to do it!! :smokin: I'm not going to say I'm not going! But it's up in the air right now!

Im also going to vegas on the 22nd for a work conference:innocent:. im sorry guys but im out im gonna be taking it easy to save up for parts so i can really go crazy once the snow thaws. Have fun:beer:

well another snow run down. jeff and spence came up from the bay area, nootherride and myself from chico, and a few other rigs from the nor cal crawlers. few brake downs, and some stuck vehicles, but a good run. Over all the JKs kicked ass in the snow. none of us broke down, and we made it up to philbrook and back to the Bambi... the brain teaser though is a full size bronco on 35s, that was going EVERYWHERE, and its always this way for this bronco, it doesnt make since that this thing can go where it does. here are a few pics
