    Im tired of just looking at my rig sit in my car port. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif All i need to do to make it ready to rock is get my exhaust x-over pipe done and remove the doors/top/tail gate. I can EASILY get all that done in a day let alone a month.

    Anyway, anyone else have a rig that actually runs that wants to go? I was thinking either the 15th or the 22nd... both are Sundays. Hopefully atleast one of us would know TSF moderately well... i have only been there a couple times and get lost easily. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    anyway, whos game?

    yeppers, TSF = Tillamook State Forest... if you're anywhere near portland, you are just a stones throw from TSF. Check that link'd forum thread on pirate there are maps and gas'n'up / ORV sticker info there. This rocks, I didn't know guys on pirate were goin' around that time. I think I'll go wheel with them on sunday Aug 22nd, maybe get there during the afternoon on the 21st and get everything ready... then drive on sunday... maybe even take the 23rd off and wheel that day too! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif Im psyched! wonder if any other fullsize peeps are gonna be there tho...

    Going by the screen names looks like Josh (silver84) is going to try to make it. I was kinda thinking about it but it depends on how much stuff I break over labor day.

    im up for some TSF action.
    I just got back from coos bay with big bad burb and cornfed sure was cool to see the people looking at us when we would rip by in a big group of huge trucks.

    I will see if they are up for it also because they know the area very well.

    I will also post up on the thread on pirate.

    theres the man! you gotta get that junk figured out so we can hit the trails man! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I got a few little things to do, but they ain't no big deal. Most time consuming thing I have left to do is removing my top/doors/gate. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    be awesome if lots of fullsize guys could make it... i dont wanna be the only non 'yota/heep guy... /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I can probably make it out, I still have a current OHV permit but running a basically stock K20 and trying to keep it nice. Last trip thru TSF was kinda tight in the trees but I made it without any damage /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Oh, I know... I'll deliver your S10 Cab that weekend and have you pay for my wheeling gas /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I've always wanted to go there. I'm a TSF virgin /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif I'd have to run the easier stuff because...

    1. I'll prolly have my boy with me and I need a cage before I try hardcore stuff.
    2. I can't afford to break my /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
    3. I don't have a winch /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
    4. My back tires are pretty low on the tread, almost 38" slicks /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
    5. I really don't need/want anymore rock rash than I already have. I know...that makes me a whoosy, but my '74 is pretty damn clean and I want to keep it that way.

    If anybody is going that is willing to run the easier stuff I'd be up for it, but if not, I'll save my gas money.

    I'd deffinently run the easier stuff with ya...My 35's are almost slicks too! And unless I get my 3/4 ton swapped in and new gears up front it'd be hard running with 35x15.5x15 swampers with 3.42's and a diesel....Plus im pretty new to wheeling, and dont really wanna kill my D.D. truck /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
