From an email sent to the NorCal Chapter....
Good evening everyone! Looks like the recent storms have brought lots of nice snow to play in! Several of us are heading up to the Sierra for some snow wheeling on the weekend of January 28th.
We'll be heading up Iron Mountain Road (Mormon Emigrant Trail), and depending on conditions, exploring some side roads. This is a snow or shine trip, and a few of us will be camping Saturday night. If you have never snow camped, it's a lot like regular camping, just a little colder. We usually find wood out on the trail, but if you have some nice dry wood lying around it would great if you could bring it with!
Please come prepared. This means you should have the usual stuff, spare tire, front and rear recovery points, tow strap, shovel, first aid kit, emergency food, water, and clothes, radios, etc. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.
Meeting time is 10:30AM at the Safeway in Pollock Pines. Pollock Pines is about 14 miles east of Placerville on highway 50. If you are heading east you will want to take the second Pollock Pines exit on Sly Park Road. Turn north under the freeway and you will see Safeway on the left. There is also a gas station across the street if you need to top off. We will be on CB channel 31. Here's a map thanks to Google....
Here are some pics from a previous snow camping trip....
See you there!
