Good turn out for this trip, 13 vehicles! It was a fun day even though we could not complete the route as intended, maybe next time. See you on the trails! George.
The wife and I have to recover after this one! Also, I definitely need sliders on the truck. And to get that lift installed. But man, that was fun! Thanks again George!
Glad you guys came out and had fun. Yes this one was a bit challenging.

Hey @GHCOE - if you have any photos/videos of the wife or I going up or down any of those hills, is there any chance I could get a copy of of them?

I'll upload my footage to Dropbox so you can use it in your video as well.
Pretty limited on my drop box limit.

Thanks to all who came out this last weekend. Here are some pictures of the fun we had.

Going up and down the rocky road was a challenge. Thanks for being good sports in the adventure. George.

Christmas time is over and the winter dull drums are setting it. Time for a winter adventure!

Winter Wonderland V
January 22, 2022
Time: 7:00 am
Meet Place: Grand View Gas 110 ID-78, Grand View, ID 83624 (There is parking across the road)
Destination: Owyhee desert
Estimated Duration: 1 day
Estimated Distance: 130 miles (Grand View to Grand View)
Comms Channels: HAM=146.480, GRMS=17, CB=13
Zello Channel (phone app): SW Idaho Overlanding and 4x4

This trip will start in Grandview and head basically south. At one point we will be traveling along a old stage route to a stage stop. I have a couple exit routes planned in case snow or mud stops us. If that is the case we head back to lower elevation and visit a city of rocks instead. It's a win, win no matter what!

As it sits right now only a trace to 2" of snow out there. If we make good time and can extend the trip we may hit 8". No major rain or snow called for this week so trails may be in good shape at least till it thaws. Showing 38* and partly cloudy for Saturday now. If we make good time and can extend the trip some we may be able to try and find some petroglyphs.
