PNW Snow Run and Tree Hunt!

Hey guys,

Some friends and I are going to be going up to play in the snow December 19th or 20th. The main purpose will be to go get stuck in the snow, but also to get a christmas tree for the holiday season. Tree permits are $10 for the mount baker snoqualmie national forest.

So if you guys want to come explore some Washington Backroads and mabey pick up a tree post up, the more trucks come the more fun it will be.

Plan on leaving mid morning from Enumclaw Washington and bring warm cloths for snowy weather. we will do lunch somewhere in the mountains.

As far as rigs go 4x4 and decent tires are required and chains and/or lockers are helpfull.

-Mike

nothing major, Brendon is on 35s with a 6in lift and a rear LSD, I am on pie cutters that like deep snow but open front and rear, my dads is a stock FX4, steves excursion is a Banks 7.3 turbo diesel on 35s with 4.56 and rear lsd, the bronco is lifted on 33s and the 250 is on 35s
