“**** UPDATE**** We have 2 spots that opened up for the full event, but if you want to join the one day snow stage of the Expedition, we start at The Crossroads Cafe, 6032 Grizzly Flat Road, Somerset CA. Be convoy ready at 9. Drivers meeting at 9:30 Saturday Feb 16th. This is a full day in the elements, and we leave by 10.

The 21st Annual Vintage 4×4 Expedition is looking for 10 more pre 1975 vehicles to embark on a 4 day back and logging road expedition. Vintage trucks, buggies, pre war speedsters, military vehicles, motorcycles and other means of vintage back country travel. Period correct pre 75 modifications only. We cap the entries at 40 vehicles, and provide starting locations and specifics to entrants only. This is a hosted semi private event. Be prepared to live out of your classic camping for an entire weekend in the worst weather the Sierras have to offer. Make sure your rig has tow points, recovery gear, and tire chains. This is not a casual run for nut and bolt correct parade vehicles. All vintage mountain equipment is welcome. We have very qualified mechanics, support and heavy off road recovery experience. Nobody will be stranded or left behind.

Day 1, Feb 14th : Thursday. Lafayette to Placerville via backroads.

Day 2: Friday. Foothills trails, vintage tractors, log skidding, tree falling, vintage chainsaws, coonhounds and the legendary Fri Night Bonfire. BYOB

Day 3: Saturday, Attempt to summit the Sierras by logging roads. A full day/ evening of driving in the snow. Return to base camp in Placerville.

    That’s a neat poster or advertisement. Any idea if I can get one somehow? Love to hang that in the shop.
