Loon/Wentworth Loop Snow Run

First of all I want to thank all the Madhatters for letting me know they were coming and showing up on time in Georgetown. A few of us met early for breakfast after which we met up with 16 rigs, 7 were guest, in front of the Georgetown Hotel. After a quick drivers meeting our Foresthills Madhatters showed up with their club having a similar plan but that would be the last we would see of them. As I suspected no snow until after 6000 ft. so we continued to the Loon Lake Kiosk were we aired down and hit the snow in the Con. At this point I started to get complaints from my buddy George Downs since he has long insisted he would NEVER!! Do the Rubicon. O well we had him surrounded. So after a uncontrolled slide down a section of the slabs and a lot of slipping going up the other side we all made it no problem. At this point we discussed what to do. I thought it might be fun to follow a group of buggies to little sluice and watch them play the majority agreed and we continued. After hearing some of our guests were peel of and go to Wentworth we stopped again to discuss this further . We decided to stay together was the best plan. So we turned on to our adopt a trail and kept moving. Thankfully there were an old set of tracks to keep me on the trail through the snow. It wasn’t too bad except one little tippy spot. We continued down to Wino rock where I took most the group up the bypass over a real slippery snow covered hill. 3 of our guest and Dave(No Fear)Jones went down through the Wino rock area. At this point there was no carnage but shortly there after our guest Andy and his monster diesel Jeep truck lost a steering box, probably helped along by ramming the wino rock. While Air Tom’s welder got put to use Chris,Phillip,Dennis and I did a little adopt a trail work clearing a very large rotted tree laying in the trail, oh George was our photographer. After leaving Wentworth Springs camp grounds all we encountered was axle deep water and a foot of snow. Everyone made it out safely to the road at around 4:30pm. Where we aired up and said goodbye. The only boner talk I heard was for Phillip for bringing Andy and his broken Jeep truck or George for braking a licence plate frame. Sorry I can’t vote for my buddy George.

Great job all!
Craig

    Great run on Saturday – had a little bit of everything including a very little bit of snow. Craig did a great job of leading a big group through the trail and everyone had a great time. Good to see a lot of guests joing us on the run. Lets hope for a little more snow by the March run.
