Trekking in the Sierras

The 2016 Sierra Trek: Come for the trail, stay for the party!

Back in 1964, a small group of Jeepers got the idea of creating a fundraising event for the newly formed California Association of 4WD Clubs (CA4WDC). It would need to be a first-rate event similar to the then-famous Jeepers Jamboree on the Rubicon. Sacramento Jeepers member Ed Dunkley, an encyclopedia of knowledge on Sierra Nevada history and old mining routes, gathered a few folks and began searching for a suitable trail. The chosen route was a long-abandoned wagon road from Cisco Grove, California (near Truckee), to the shores of Meadow Lake and the 1860’s mining camp of Summit City. It had been decades since the “road” had been used, and Mother Nature had played her hand at reclaiming the land.

Corporate donations can make a difference

As avid off-roaders, we are always concerned about how to effectively fight for “OUR” public lands. Many of us donate hundreds of hours and dollars to these efforts to different organizations.

Scouts West's Chicken lays a big egg

The following is from an article written by Scouts West President Tim Potter to the club:

Note from Dave Henry: The featherless fowl that Tim is referring to is a rubber chicken. When the Sheriff fines a member, the fine is put in the rubber chicken. I guess it’s safer than a bank now a’days. This is all done in good fun and it helps to fatten up the chicken. At the end of the year the chicken gets opened up and the year’s fines are donated to some deserving organization. Most years the fines amount to around $150. When you consider how the money was collected, this represents a lot of breakdowns and other mishaps for the members to incur in a single year.
