Just moved to Kent washington and I dont know anyone here, or anywhere to go wheelin (lol and I just got my K5 more or less finished after 5 years of working on it).

    welcome to the great state of Washington, my home of 27 years. :thumb: Someone from closer to your new home would prolly know more about local wheelin' spots than I do... I'll let them fill in the blanks there...

    Jump on Hwy 169 to 410 and head to Enumclaw,Greenwater,White River, Crystal mtn.,Mt. Rainier. Or 167 to Puyallup or Sumner. All "used to be " great places to go. Been a few years since I lived over there (Renton) but there should still be a few places to go. Oh,try going up to Index and hit Reiter Pit....

    never wise to advertise that you have a good car hauler trailer... next thing you know, everyone and their brother will be trying to borrow it or get you to haul stuff for them. :grin: :thumb:

    As far as rocks and wheeling, how about Naches? Never been there myself, but I've seen some pretty cool action pics...

    narrow your rig. :thumb: I'll take on naches once my cage is done. I've heard there are lots of tight spots, but that'll just make it more of a challenge. :thumb:

    Lol, thats next on the list, narrow/and or tube it out, but that requires having a shop or garage big enough to get it into and still have room to work. As far as advertising the car hauler i dont mind helping ppl out, but I dont have a rig big enough to tow my trailer plus a k5 on unfortunately, but if I get the job at the GMC dealer I applied for, I see a 3500 duramax in the near future. :)

    I took my '79 K10 longbed thru the trails on Little Naches with out a dent... you just need to know which trails to look for. Memorial Day weekend was the big trip to Little Naches with a group of K5's, but there will probably be another trip sometime this summer. Check out www.krazyk5.com and you will find most of the Seattle/Tacoma area guys over there.

    Reiter Pit is just down the road from me near Gold Bar, WA. I've gotta finish putting my Jimmy back together and will be making some test runs up there soon...

    Send me a shout when you are going to head up to Reiter, as long as its on a weekend id love to go along, and two rigs is always better then one.

    Reiter Pit kicks a$$. Some good hill climbs and a lot of MUD. As for the Naches Trail,it was the "spring fling". Early spring, lots of snow and mud = trees in the way:haha:
