Hut Lake

Drop Side: There are 2 lines to pick at side of the entrance to Hut Lake Trail. Right side was recently “fixed” which made it really easy for our jeeps. Left side is more challenging. My friend Pat decided to try the left side. Seeing him going through encouraged me and I decided to try it too. Of course the next thing, everybody decided to pick that line on the way out. We got 9 jeeps out of the entrance by the hard way. 2 of them needed a little pull but at the end everybody had a great time. The best part was VIP lounge viewing area which was created by Jim. He found this garden chair on the side and yes, please see it yourself 🙂

 

This area had a couple of water falls, lots of big rocks and snow. I spotted some very rare SNOW JEEPS high up on the mountains crouching over snowy rocks. It was a good opportunity to film them 🙂

 

On Oct 28th, 2012, we were back to Hut Lake.  These photos were taken on the same day of my video called Drop Side.

Exploring Carolin Mines

I would never imagine in a million year that I was going to drive my jeep through a gold mine. But I did 🙂

My friends, Hai, Dave, Nick and I went to explore some mines on the Gold Rush Trail, BC. There are 3 different levels. Hai’s jeep on 39s with roof top tent made it through the mine. The lower level is flooded and the middle level is drivable. Driving through the mine you enter at the 900 level, and take the ramp up and exit the 1000 level. We couldn’t reach the entrance of the top level because of the snow line. It took us a while to find the entrance. After we got in, we took the down ramps and ended up with another flooded area. After 20 minutes of driving, we decided to come out from the entrance we came in. Dave was driving the last jeep. He didn’t come out. When he came out after 5 minutes, he told us he found the up ramp which also indicates ramp exit. We decided to go back and sure enough ramp exit took us to the other side of the mountain. The area we came out was only enough to park 3 jeeps. We decided to leave 1 jeep in the mine parked in a pocket area. We turned 3 jeeps around. Then we brought the 4th one to turn around after we took other 3 in. By far it was my best wheeling experience. Hai’s monster jeep and 50″ led light bar saved the day in terms of filming 🙂 Thanks to Hai for letting me mount my camera on his jeep, thanks to Dave for the idea of exploring this mine, thanks to Pat who organized us but couldn’t join us because of work, thanks to Nick to be brave enough to wheel with us on his first club run.

 

Mountain Jeep (at Molibdenite)

This was my best trip ever in my jeep.  I enjoyed both the trip and making the video of it. I really liked my friend Pat’s comment on this trip.  Here I will share it with you word by word:

“It was awe inspiring to get that high up into the mountains in our jeeps! This was the most scenic and incredible wheeling I’ve done and was well worth the drive. The pics and vids that are going to come out of this trip won’t even do justice to the awesomeness of it all…but they are going to be epic. A stock jeep would make it all the way to the top of this well made road to the heavens but I wouldn’t do it alone. From the upper meadow which is at the 6600′ level to the top the trail is sometimes just wheel width wide and the view out the downside window is of a 1650′ drop off at about 60 degrees. Makes for some real gut checking moments….throw in a couple if big rocks that require the inner wheel to go over them because there is no way around them and you’ve got an exciting moment or two!”
