4 Wheeling to Carson River Hot Springs

This post is inspired by a trip me and my old pal Daniel Deemer have planned for tomorrow that includes (but won’t be limited too) 4 wheeling and hot spring’in. We like going down to the Carson River Hot Springs because it’s a real hoot on the way in. Great 4×4 roads all the way in. Some with great water crossing features, some large rocks and boulders, extreme angles, and epic scenery. I’ve been taking my jeep out there since I came to California over 5 years ago. It seems like every time to we to the hot springs, we take a different route in or out. There are a handful of ways to get down into the canyon where the hot springs are located next to the Carson River.

Carson River Hot Springs Photos

All of the photos below were taken by the epic photographer Daniel Deemer himself. Give him a follow on instagram and like his stuff! Click any of the photos to see them up close.

Dan is a basic badass when it comes to taking photos! Now that I’ve got these photos up, I’m reminded that we filmed a bunch of GoPro video last October when we headed out there for a weekend camping trip. I may have even made a video edit… standby…

Carson River Hot Springs Video

AhhhHa! I did make a video edit. I uploaded it to my crappy YouTube channel so I can embed it in this post so you can see how great of a video editor I am. Just kidding, but really watch this video, it shows a bunch of really cool river crossings and 4 wheeling with the more of the views seen in the photos above.

That’s it for today. Maybe on tomorrow’s trip we’ll take some more pics and vids. It’s snowing today at Kirkwood so hopefully it’s real wet and muddy when we get down there tomorrow. Wet and Muddy, just like we like it! Party on people!


We got a new dog yesterday and he is the cutest thing ever! He’s a Great Pyrenees / lab mix of some sort. Anybody wanna hook us up with a doggy DNA test? After picking him up and finally get him up the hill after a little car sickness, we were home and playing in the backyard snow before he knew it. Safe to say he likes the snow! Click any of the photos below for full pixel beauty. He just told me he can’t wait to meet everyone!


More to come on adventures with Friday The Dog… I’m still having fun with this website even though we don’t have the van anymore. Thanks for reading!


Well… we made it through another year. This year we had a bitchin’ “ROARING 20’S” themed party. It was a Roaring 20’s party, because, duh…  it’s now the year 2020! I managed to get a couple good photos on my phone. We also had a sweet photo booth setup at the end of our hallway. One of these days I’ll get around to putting those photos on DropBox or something similar. Everyone did a great job of dressing up.


This picture was taken rather early on in the night. I figured I’d better take some sort of photo before I forgot to take any at all. I’d venture to say we had about 50 folks here, give or take. Keg beer, karaoke, and good friends all around. Viva la Kirkwood! 2020 bitches!

Norms Nose in December @ Kirkwood

Hey everyone – I should let you know that we sold the van so you won’t be seeing much of that anymore on here. We still have this cool domain though. Figured I’d post shit on here because why not…

Rode Chair 10 a handful of times today. Norms Nose was firing pretty good and the early season chutes over there are super fun. Here is some GoPro footage from one of my runs from today. 12.12.19 at Kirkwood Mountain Resort. Comment if you think it’s cool.
