SNOWBALL RUN 2018
Hey Crawler Ready Nation,
A few the weekends ago we had our annual SNOWBALL RUN and wanted to share the experience with you!!
For the last few years in January we prep for the cold and head up Highway 6 to a ghost town called Thistle. Thistle was a town that thrived by servicing locomotives before the change over to diesel engines. In April 1983 a landslide blocked the Spanish Fork River which flooded and destroyed the town(geology). After we got off the main road we have to take a minute to let people air down and disconnect their sway bars. We then drove on up Lake Fork Road headed to Smith Reservoir which is our goal but that is always determined by how much snow there is.
The last few years we have not been able to make it to the frozen reservoir because the deep snow but this year we succeeded!!
After returning to the staging area we were able to pull out our Power Tank and effortlessly fill up our tires for the return trip.
We would like to thank all those who were able to join and make it another great offroad trip.
-Always remember we are here to enjoy not destroy.
Here is a little treat from past trips to the Smith Reservoir during the summer.
