    Bunker Hill and that area is a good area to hit, around new years though it is realy nasty. By then everyone with 44's have hogged it all out.
    Most likely once it starts to rain for the rest of the year that place in St. Helens will be having runs up there.

    Is that place in St Helens the place with the deep water holes? I think I have been there several years ago if its the same place. Use to do the day after thanksgiving run there /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif.

    Bunker hill is in the Scappoose area.
    I'm not sure how long the one guy has been doing that.

    Hwy 30 West to Scappoose. From your place take I5 south and go over the Freemont bridge, take the St. Helens Hwy 30 West exit and head for Scappoose about 15 miles.
    It would be much easier to show a way in and out than try to describe how to get around up there.
    I'll see if Kevin want's to head up there and let ya know.

    That was prolly Bunker hill or Redcut, by late November it is pretty sloppy, Darrin at work has a vidio of his 72 K5 on 39.5's rolling through one hole up to the headlights /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I have a video from that thanksgiving run. This one guy had a orange 2nd gen K5 who would spend like 20 minutes just f-ing around in holes where other trucks could barely make it through. he only had like 35 or 36" tires but was locked front and rear. he didn't make it much further though. I think he got lots of water in his gas tank somehow. Had to be towed back with his brothers 1st gen k5. Which was an awesome sight. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Yep, locked up makes all the difference. I can't wait till I get a locker for the front! I'm gonna have to though... /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif I did that once. I was sloshing around in a little mudhole and got stuck. The rear of the truck was under water just above the gas cap. Apparently I was stuck a little too long and the rubber gasket on the cap was a little too wore out! I had to drop the tank and empty it out when I got home. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    It'd be cool to see the video though!

    If i wasn't so lazy i could get a copy made. the quality already sucks so I don't know what any more duplication would do to it. And this 12 year old kid was narrating it which is either hilarious or annoying I'm not sure which.
