This DVD includes the three programs described below.

The Meeker Trail
30 minutes - 1965

Join this spine-rattling trip with the Yakima Ridge Runners Jeep Club as they retrace the oldest route across the Cascades: Naches Pass. Filmed in black-and-white in 1965, it is based on Ezra Meeker's book "Pioneer Reminiscences of Puget Sound", which recounts traversing this old Indian trail with the first immigrant wagon train of 148 people in 1853. Some of the audio had to be carefully restored due to early technology. Originally aired under the KOMO title “Ezra Meeker and the Jeep”.

The female members of the Seattle Jeep Club leave their families at home and enjoy a weekend 'Doe Run' on the rugged backcountry roads of the Cle Elum and Salmon La Sac area in the Cascade Mountains.

Mud Race
30 minutes - 1977
