Spending Time in The Sierra’s for the 49th Annual Sierra Trek
Lot’s of good things going on in them thar mountains… 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.
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 & Spray-On Bedliners Bay Area permanently resolved a leak in the roof of a University of Santa Clara Team Bus.
The University of Santa Clara Team bus had leaked before and the solution was to apply caulking to the seam – you can see in the photos – the line that runs the length of the roof. To properly fix the leak, all of the caulking had to be removed and the roof scuffed. Then the entire bus was masked off to protect any areas from overspray.
Polyurea is THE PERFECT SOLUTION for water-proofing because it is SIX TIMES more flexible than caulking and can be stretched 600% without failing. Guaranteed to not leak! PERFECT for the roof on a rolling, flexing bus or any RV roof repair.
As you can see, this is a very large size job, but we have the facilities to accommodate! The bus was brought into our 35 foot spray booth so that the material is sprayed in one application. After it’s sprayed it takes just a few seconds for the material to dry. It dries solid and seals out any moisture. It’s a thick indelible finish that will NEVER leak again!
Do you have something that needs to be protected from the elements?
Seal out leaks with one application of Polyurea!

Mike’s Truck Accessories provided protection to the underside of the fenders and running-boards coating with Polyurea. This 1937 Ford Hotrod is being built from scratch. These parts are now protected from rocks and road hazards for the life of this car.
Mike’s Truck Accessories puts a smile on this 2001 Chev truck. Truck has been lifted, shocks, tires, and truck bed updated with Bullet Liner liner. With this truck you will need a ladder or an electronic step. The truck sits 43″ high at the floor of the cab.
Waterproof roof was installed by Mike’s Truck in Hayward using Rhino Lining. The project started by sanding to remove any rust, coat with primer and finally install a new UV stable Rhino Lining coating. This material is flexible and waterproof and will remain “new” looking for the life of this vehicle. Rhino Lining properties make them an excellent choice for Recreational Vehicle roofs, Van, Decks, Houseboats, Sailboats, Yachts and Trucks which is UV stable, flexible, and waterproof.
Mike’s Truck works on lots of different projects. The new year brings lots of projects in – including this 1958 Cadillac Hearse. This Caddy had a vinyl roof that was worn, torn, and non-existent. Mike’s Truck performs emergency surgery on the Hearse car roof in Jan 2014.
