Report by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures

On Sunday October 25th, 2009 some of our members met with ORV Deputy Martin at the Slab ORV area (near Buena Washington) to place a new sign with the ORV rules.

Here are some pictures of the day.

First the sign had to be put on the post.

One hole had to be deeper to get the sign strait and level.

This climb was real loose. I could not top it with my 99 XJ because it isn’t the rig I beat on.

You can see the dirt flowing down like water behind BindPilot’s rig.

On the way out I stopped to take pictures of the sign. Let’s hope it doesn’t get shot up or painted.

This was a fun day.

A special thank you to Pepsi for making the sign and to the Yakima County Sheriffs Office for getting the project put together.
