I'd consider going out. I just relocated from AZ in October and am trying to hook up with some Cruiserheads. Sunday is better for me; I live in north Portland.

I've gone out a couple times this week and it's been a blast. I'm interested if anyone wants to go during the week....I work weekends unfortunately.

A lot of factors play into traction. Tire pressure, tread depth, momentum, gearing and type of snow just name a few. I've got the BFG KO2 33x10.5 and we were pushing through 12-14inches. Granted that was really powdery stuff....either way, getting a little sideways is part of the fun :D

Wow, that's impressive! The snow I've been running into lately seems to stick between the lugs of my mud terrains, giving me little to no traction. They're also terrible on any sort of snow/ice combo. I was up at Government Camp last week during a snowstorm and I was sliding all over the highway at speeds above 15mph. I'll admit that I was at 35psi both times.

Once these are done I'll be switching to the BFG KO2's for better universal performance.

Im meeting up with a new group, Overland car campers, Monday morning (MLK Day) at 10am in Estacada at the Get N Go . It's going to be family friendly kids day to go sledding and wheeling in the snow. We are suppose to head to Timothy lake then to Olallie and see how far we can get....

Pics from the Christmas Tree run this year, snow depth was lame, should be a lot of fun now.
Are you guys still planning tomorrow at 10:00? There is a chance I may be able to make it. Also hope to get my new CB installed tonight depending on how late I am in the office...
