Post Easter Weekend Run Top of Chehalis Lake March 31, 2018
Leaving the Sasquatch Inn at 9:30 to go to air-down spot by the Chahalis River Hatchery. UPDATE: WE ARE NOT CAMPING. HAVING BREAKFAST SATURDAY MORNING AT 9 AM SASQUATCH INN THEN LEAVING FROM THERE.
The Wilk's and the Salter's more than likely will be camping up at the top of the Chehalis Lake on Friday Night if you want to join us let us know, if not see ya on Sat Morning. We will take a loop near the Statlu Lake falls during the day. Wiener Roast back at campground in the Afternoon. The Run up there is fine for stock rigs, but the Loop will require some clearance and 35 in tires. last time a group met us on the other side of the loop by the broken bridge to avoid the obstacles in the loop.
Looking for a trail leader to get the Sat. Morning group up there. if not here are the directions.
Take Weaver Cr. Road which eventually becomes Morris Valley Road once you pass the turn off for Hale Creek and Sunrise lake go approximately another 5 km to the junction of Mystery Creek road. Turn left onto Mystery Creek and stay on main road, Lots of tempting logging truck roads left and right. do not be tempted. Keep going until you hit a very obvious T junction. Turn Left. Keep going until you go over a bridge turn left again as ASAP a look for a road to the left going into an old rec site. keep going past a few camp sites. look to the left and in the middle of the tributary will be us camping. cross the river and voila.. you have arrived. we will have our radios on if you get lost.
Confirm if you can come.
replies are most helpful.

Anyone going on the day run? Wouldn’t mind going. 35” minimum to get over the rock areas though?

Thinking about it, I'll have to to see how my week progresses but should be a fun run.

Darren an I made an exploratory trip N Chehalis today, to check out for next weeks run,
we hit snow run got after the turn onto Mystery Cr Rd and it was almost 3’ deep at some places
but we made fresh tracks most of the way across. At the turn down to the lake the snow becomes
patchy.
So it will be a snow run and quite deep in areas, so at least one locker.
We made a quick attempt uphill to Statlu but gave up as it was late in the day
I will leave it up to the EC for the rest n details

Came down with a big of a bug. Camping is not such a good idea for me at this point.

Will try to make a day trip on the Friday.

Thank you for your hard work in breaking trail into the site.

Given the amount of rain expected over the weekend, I will not be camping. I will happily lead the Saturday morning group up there though.

Perhaps the EC should clarify his posting.

I can confirm that I definitely am contemplating to join the run on Saturday, but will forgo the camp overnight due to anticipated precipitation.

Are we leaving from the Sasquatch Inn at 9:30 on Saturday, led by Paul?

I am in. I've got all my springs swapped out (thanks Gerry). I will be meeting at 9.00 for breaky.
I have not had time to install my new Ham radio so I will still be using my sucky portable (sorry Wes), so It would be best I am in the middle of the pack.

I take it the wiener roast is still going on, even though we're meeting for breakfast.
I don't know how many of us will be packing condiments, but I will bring mustard, ketchup, and relish.

The snow up E Stave was chunky icy slop

Have fun tomorrow
