Lunch at Prison Hill

The Club held a four-wheel drive (4WD) Skills Day at Carson City’s Prison Hill on April 30th.  The event included 15 vehicles and their crews learning the ropes of driving off-road.  We learned about 4WD modes, sway bar disconnects, lockers, winching, and practiced running in sand and steep hills while treading lightly.  It was a great day!  Thanks to all the participants and to our instructors Don Schellenberg, John Briggs, Daria and Dean Eppley!

Trail runs have started for the year.  With membership input, we’ve planned at least two runs per month with one of the monthly runs on the weekends for our weekend warriors.  June runs include Babbitt Peak Fire Lookout (easy and scenic), Secret Canyon (tough rock crawling) and Peavine Mountain (easy and scenic).
