So my buddy and i headed up to attempt east Harrison to Boston bar. we made it to about the 60km mark, and then we ran into a good 2.5+ feet of snow, which was getting deeper real quick. it was really wet heavy stuff, if i had bigger tires i think we could have made it a little further. heres some pics

this is as far as we made it. i think we could have kept going further but we were spending alot of time trying to get up the this hill. lots of forward and reverse beating the snow down, bigger tires and truck would have been choice

cheers to a good trip!

we made it past the first washout on the trip, which was washed out pretty good, just wide enough for my jeep to get by. on the way back down we ran into another guy in a stock rubicon, who ended up in the ditch on the wash out. ripped off his fender flare and crunched in his bumper, made it out though. he turned around right after that.

If anyone decides to give it a shot bring chains or have a bigger truck. will make it further then us, but for ever foot we went it got deeper.

good times!
