FORDYCE for the FUN of It – In Before the Grooming
A little over a week ago, Cindy and I were up in the Truckee area doing some exploring and ultimately ended up at Meadow Lake. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the area, this is the location of the old gold mining town known as Summit City and it’s also where the Fordyce Jeep Trail comes to an end. While we were up there, we ran into some locals who reminded us that the annual Sierra Trek event was just around the corner and that the California 4 Wheel Drive Association would be coming in soon to “groom” the trail. If we wanted to get in some play time while the rocks were still nasty, we had better do it soon. Unprepared to run it right then and there, we finished up our day, headed back home and didn’t give it another thought – or should I say, I didn’t think Cindy was giving it much thought. After waking up on Thursday morning and as we started to get ready for the day, Cindy turned to me and asked if maybe we should try running Fordyce the following week. To that, I said, maybe we should just run it today! Needless to say, that was all that needed to be said and before we knew it, our two Jeeps were packed up and we were off to a long fun filled day out on the trail.
