    not sure if i can make it. how long of a drive is it from portland to the trailhead you're meating at in tsf? my presence as the easter bunny is required sunday morning. might be a long haul saturday night. i know, i know call me a wus if you want. mudhog, can you give me some more details on the run- times and stuff? i'd really like to go, even for part of it. i'll see what i can do. thanks

    we will be meating at rogers camp at maybe 9 or 10 am i will make a firm start time as i find out who all is going and what works best 4 everyone. the meating place is about 30-40 minutes from portland depending on trafic. if you look at the link to the map i put up it will show you what the trails are raited at. this will be a very fun run

    well as tsf offers many different challenges there are also by-passes 4 the really bad spots to avoid body damage 4 those that wish to use them. i will have my camcorder there to get some good pics and video. as far as fluff run it will be up to each driver to decide what obstacles they would like to try and conquer. but a good time will be had by all[​IMG]

  11. hey, mudhog, just singed up for the mailing list for bushhackers- i think. i'm waiting for my membership to be verified. looks like the bush hackers website needs updating badly. last trail run update was last june! do you guys do any runs in the cascades? still working on making it for easter. will you be sporting any new upgrades for the easter run?

    Actually July was the last one. I hosted that one to central oregon. Actually they post current runs in the email threads. And nearly every week someone is 4 wheeling and some times during the work week.

    Well, as I told Rene I am not yet sure if I can go - if it is on Saturday it might be a possibility, but as my kids soccer coach we have a game and a "jamboree" scheduled which eats up most of the day. I too like Blue Knight would love to meet all of the guys and get some pics of us all, but not sure of my schedule.

    Kidtime in this case would have to win out as being the coach of the team makes it hard to tell your 8 year old you're going wheeling instead. Not a complaint, but I just couldn't do it to her.

    So as time gets closer I will let you guys know, maybe I could drive out there late in the day just to meet everyone, depending on the time of the soccer stuff.

    Well I'm thinking about it, but I just spent alot of money fixing and replacing. And I'm trying to sell it, so I'm wondering with a stock Blazer, 31"s, and some extra horsepower if it is worth driving over from Salem. Let me know so I can make plans.

    Displacement, cubes, and did you say you drive a riceburner???

    frank it is on saterday the 14th i sure hope you can make it and i promise no jumping the truck lol
    nrose07 my blazer has no lift and 33's and i do just fine. in our group the oregon bush hackers meantiond above we have several people with 31in tire's that run tsf with us with no problems and there are by-passes at the parts where 31's wont make it so if you want to make the drive then come on over if blue beast makes it he is coming from bend

    Hey Matt, I'm going to be driving over 300 miles to attend this run...and in the meantime I'm frantically trying to finish my tub swap so I actually have something to wheel when I get there [​IMG] I think it gonna be a blast, check out the pictures in the Blazin trails forum, you might have to scroll back a little ways, but Shannon posted a good selection of pics for the curious...
