Our long time member Tirademan (R.I.P. Scott McClean) compiled this extensive archive of Sasquatch related newspaper articles and donated it to the BFF before his passing. The earliest articles in this collection are from 1818 in Florida, 1877 (Australia), 1884 (Canada) and 1764 (Europe).
New tires got put through their paces the other day when an early snow storm hit. Heavy wet snow that is slick as snot. Tires did great! Drove up and down some steep hills in town that had vehicles in the ditch at the bottom. I was able to go everywhere in 2wd.
It definitely did! That section of trail showed on Gaia Maps as looping back to the secondary logging road that I started up the mountain on, but not far past that photo spot, it became so overgrown and the cross trenches so extreme, that nothing bigger than quads had been through, so I did a 3 point "bulldozer" turn, and came out the way I went in. That's part of the reason I opted for a 14 year old 4x4, not a shiny new one. I did manage to pull a couple of the plastic fender liner clips that hold the rear mud flaps loose, so I'll have to pick a few up to repair that, or ditch the flaps altogether.
