We will be heading up to the Lake Pillsbury area to cut x-mas trees. The permit to cut is only $10 and you get to wheel along the way!

We will be meeting at Coddingtown Mall in Santa Rosa at 7am and heading up from there as a group. Everyone is welcome to come, even if you don't need to cut a tree and just want to come for fun. All vehicles are welcome.

Drop me a note for more info if you want to attend.

My neighbor would like to come out and get a tree as well. He really wants to come out just to get a tree. He has an Explorer. Would that be okai?

Yes, that would be fine.

Is this trip suitable for a total beginner with a new, all-stock truck?
It really depends on snow depth...it can be very deep at that time of year out there...you'll probably be alright though.

I'll probably already have an x-mas tree, but I might run out there with you guys for the first time, seeing as i'm about 1 hour away from Lake Pillsbury :D

You'll be fine. Just be prepared for....

-getting stuck....buy a toe strap or two, spare tire, shovel, warm clothes, food, and body damage (always a possibility)

I went last year in Feb. and did fine in a stock truck. With the exception I had to be winched up a hill.....and it took a long time.....and i was a newb without any recovery equipment.

There aren't really any technical sections (at least we didn't go on any) but it's a fun place to go to!

Here is what the place looks like.
