Vicki was chosen to be the Jeep Master for this year's Fifth Annual Girl's Power Run
The turn out was low but we had four Jeeps and lots of fun

Vicki & Jim D, Marie & Ace S, Jackie & Gene H. and Sue & Ron B
met at the McDonalds at I-80 and Sierra College Blvd
This year's trail was decided over breakfast and the girl's resolved to try the difficult Signal Peak OHV Trail

The trail starts at the Eagle Lakes Exit on I-80
The trail is only 4 miles, but most of the trip is on difficult narrow rocky terrain

When we reached the beginning of the trail the husbands were told to
"Get in - Sit down - And shut up" (Unless spoken to)

The street tires on Jackie's Jeep kept slipping on the loose rock after one mile into the trail

Gene has a new set of off-road tires he has been meaning to put on
Gene convinced Jackie to turn around and they would meet us at the Cisco Grove exit

It was a good decision for Jackie & Gene to go back
The trail continued to get more difficult with sections of steep climbs over loose rock
