When it comes to my Jeep, I am really picky as to who gets to touch it. I do all my own maintenance, and my inner circle of Jeep friends get to wrench on it. But sometimes you just need to get a gear job done and need to take it to a reputable shop.
Last May, it was time for 4:88s so I took the Jeep to Northridge 4×4 in Silverdale, Washington.
I have had a long relationship with the guys at “NR 4×4” so I fully trusted them to do the job and do it right.
On our way to the Rubicon trail this past August, I was looking for a camping spot where we could break up the drive a bit, and also enjoy some camping.
After a bit of Googling, I found out about the Gold Lake OHV trail in Plumas National Forest, in California. I plotted the coordinates into my GPS, and our small group of rag tag Jeepers soon departed from Oregon.
The trail was easy to find, after a long climb into the mountains. After following the signs, we met the trail head. We all decided to air down (even though it is a short trail) however the number of people that were passing us combined with the fact the campground can fill up quickly led us to abandon the air down and get to the campground.
