We went looking for snow again, found it....again ALOT of it! HWY 20 was closed out of Nevada City so we took Red Dog Rd which then turns into Banner Quaker Hill Rd and gets pretty awesome. Too awesome for a snow rookie rolling solo. We lost our cell signal a few miles in and for lack of a better word, I was lost. Following SnowCat tracks up the mountain for a few miles. Nothing was matching the map and the snow was getting deeper, about 2ft when I turned around. That was fun, had to use the winch several times including the U-turn. At least we were prepared for camping it out this time. But we won't be going that way again unless it's with someone that knows the area.
The trail was amazing, very fun. Even got another save on the way out. Just an old F-250 that slid off into the ditch (outside corner). The Ol Sea Turtle made it look easy.
I'm down to go again after I fix my rear axle. Replacing the shafts, bearings and seals.
This is right before it started getting bad, sliding and getting down to the mud.
