Darn north-westerners....we need more mid-westerners on here! If Washington wasn't so far from Michigan, I'd join. :( Ah well, hope you have fun!

Ive resigned to wheeling with whoever is willing and decent. Not many R50 people round these parts apparently. Joined a local 4x4 group thats mostly Suzukis but has a variety of rigs. Really nice folks and they have some really cool little trucks. Very well organized too. They have regular meetings to discuss events, organize trail maintenance days and are actively working with the forest service to keep trails open and continue a positive dialogue. Definitely looking forward to exploring more of Washington.

That's a bit too far for me right now. I am keeping the pathy close to home until I can replace the timing belt. Has about 100,000 on it.

No worries. Next time. Events will be monthly. Tahuya, Elbe, Cle Elum all in the coming months. I think Elbe is next month.

Snow was really deep. I basically plowed my way through thanks to the major balls the 3.5 has but after it got too deep there was no going further. Even the Suzukis were having trouble. While they were able to float most of the day the snow quickly changed characteristics when the temps got above 40 and everyone was getting stuck. We were about 3 miles from the pass summit but glad we backed out when we did. Nothing but slush from all the sun as we rose in elevation,

A couple good yanks forward and back got the job done. Was down to the body, tires spinning freely. Those little Samurai's are tough bastards.

Looks like fun. Never thought a pathfinder would look like the giant vehicle in a group.

 

Is that an F-series pickup facing the group at the front of the column in the 6th picture?
