2022 January TDNews

 Although the TD4WD Club has not done any runs over the winter, we have been busy planning the 2022 schedule.  Members can see the trail run calendar at td4wheelers.org or you can join on the site for only $10 annual dues.  Thanks to everyone who participated in the planning sessions!

The holiday storms brought extreme off-roading opportunities to our Tahoe Donner streets!  Our winch proved very useful for helping neighbors get their stuck cars out of their driveways.  The kinetic tow rope also assisted stuck vehicles through plow berms.  Modern vehicles have no apparent place to attach a tow rope.  Car manufacturers provide a screw-in tow eye that attaches into a small concealed hatch in the front or rear bumpers.  The tow eye is usually stored in the black tool pouch with your vehicle’s jack handle.  Check your owners manual so you know in advance how to attach your tow eye!
