Spending Time in The Sierra’s for the 49th Annual Sierra Trek

Lot’s of good things going on in them thar mountains… LINE-X of Silicon Valley, LINE-X of Bay Area, and Mike’s Truck  attend this years Sierra Trek 2016.

During the past 40-plus years, Sierra Trek has attracted participants from around the world; it’s become an annual summer destination for generations of four wheelers.  Access to the Summit City base camp at Meadow Lake is suitable for campers, trailers, and motorhomes.

Meadow Lake

The base camp was complete with breakfast, dinner, huge fire pit, saloon, nightly music, vendors, hot showers and a whole lotta trucks, jeeps and families doing what folks have done for generations. Reunite with friends on a family friendly camping trip where the kids have as much fun as mom and dad. I was amazed on the number of kids that have attended the annual Sierra Trek event for as long as they are old.

Here’s a short video out on the trail at   Winch Hill #5 Video.

Our veterans were also honored by having a parade through the courtyard after very rugged trip up a trail that is so difficult a winch is required equipment. Fordyce Creek Trail has 5 areas called Winch Hills. That is, help is available should one need it.




Wounded Warrior event had veterans making the trek on Fordyce Creek Trail to Meadow Lake up some very difficult terrain and ending with a parade through the base camp court yard. As a veteran myself, I am so glad to finally see these young men honored on a frequent basis.

So as a So Cal guy who moved North in 91 and never ventured any further north than Truckee… I am glad I made this trip. The high meadows and plains of the Sierra’s are an area of California I will continue to explore.



Mike’s Truck Accessories salesman says Line-X will provide lots of protection in the great outdoors. Line-X coatings will provide protection against – rocks, hail, road trash, tree branches, shrapnel, you name it. But we think its great when one can simply enjoy a sunny, calm, winter day with no protection at all. Yes/No?

The Simple Things in Life – Line-X

Waterproof roof was installed by Mike’s Truck in Hayward using Line-X. The project started by sanding to remove any rust, coat with primer and finally install a new UV stable Line-X coating. This material is flexible and waterproof and will remain “new” looking for the life of this vehicle. Line-X Platinum and Premium properties make them an excellent choice for Recreational Vehicle roofs, Van, Decks, Houseboats, Sailboats, Yachts and Trucks which is UV stable, flexible, and waterproof.
