    4 Wheeling EWA Spring Fever 4x4 Run - Mar 3 2012

    Eastern Washington Adventures
    Spring Fever 4x4 Run Colockum
    10 AM March 3rd, 2012


    Colockum 4x4 Snow Run - Feb 26 2011. Photo by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures

    This is an Eastern Washington Adventures run open to Street licensed 4x4 Rigs, "No buggies".
    You must follow EWA rules and the laws of the land to run with us.
    There may be some muddy areas. You must try to not spin your tires in muddy areas. Mudding is illegal in this area.
    A Discover Pass is required.


    This run calls for street legal 4x4 rigs (of all sizes) that have off road type tires.
    Most likely there will be snow and mud on Colockum Road and the Green Dot Roads.
    We plan to leave for the trail at 10 AM from
    4WheelingPlus.com
    319 North Main Street, Kittitas, WA 98934 Get Directions

    From the meeting point in Kittitas there is about 8.5 miles of pavement to run. We are not doing high speeds getting there and we will go the speed of the slowest trailer queen.
    Paved Route 4WheelingPlus.com to the Colockum Sign


    Please post if you are going so we know to notify you if plans change.

    Below is the list of who is going so far.

    CB Ch #7.

    Thanks, Ceg

    Hey Ceg, just wondering if the ZJ can do this trip with studded snow tires. Don't want to try it if I would be in the way. If not may be up for a ride a long if some one don't mind.

    I would advise not to take a stock height ZJ on this run. We will be looking for deeper snow. I am not for sure if there will be any or not though. It could warm up and melt a lot off or it could dump a lot more snow. Kind of iffy time of the year and the season so far has been far from normal. You are welcome to ride with me.

    I just put this one on the calendar.

    Looks like low temps in Ellensburg will be in the high 20's? Might be a little too chilly for camping in the tent trailer.

    You can camp in the Club House if you bring your own propane for the heaters.

    About 8.5 miles of pavement. We are not doing high speeds getting there.
    Paved Route 4WheelingPlus.com to the Colockum Sign



    The other option is to park farther up. Just not as safe.

    What kind of snow conditions are you guys expecting? We would like to come up and wheel, but it has to be worth the fuel. 150 miles one way. Also if we were to make the trek, is there some place we can park the pickup/camper and trailer for the night?

    Close enough and on slow enough roads that you should be fine.

    On the weekend you can park lots of vehicles on main street in Kittitas. We've even got away with a truck/trailer combo a couple spaces down from my shop, so long as it doesn't block any garage doors.

    My shop will have room in front and in the bull pen area for rigs as well. It's not a perfect parking scenario but with a little effort you should be able to park tow rigs. There are cameras every where so if anyone does mess with your rig they will be on the next World's Dumbest Criminal's show.

    My house is 3 blocks away and has a little room for parking as well.

    If anyone breaks their rig my shop is available for repairs. If you hold my beer... I might even turn a wrench or two to help.

    If I am not busy and my knee is "working" that day, I may have to join you guys. I won't know until that morning.

    We are planning on being there as of right now, although we have to get through a Dr. Appointment tomarrow. We will need a place to park tow rig.

    You can park in my gated bull pen. Very secure. I can also give you access to my shop so you can use the bathroom and such if needed?
