    Im glad to hear there is at least one other full size wheeler in the northwest! I moved up here from colorado back in november and I have met a lot of posers but no real four-wheelers. Also when you do get up here be ready for almost everybody to tell you that your rig is to large for the trails. Its not as long as you dont mind bushes scratching at the paint. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I live on Whidbey and there is Walker Valley ORD park about 40 miles away. There is is a couple of other places that are pirvate land but the owners don't mind as long as your not to loud and don't to it at night, and there are the areas that you can use as long as you don't mind runnin from the blue and red.
    I have to agree with wfo there is a lot of posers around here. If I ever get this crack in my frame fixed I'll be hitting the trails hard this winter.

    I'm up near Vancouver B.C. and have wheeled Walker Valley in the snow. I agree that size is an issue but only if pinstriping bothers you. For the most part you can fit anywhere a Jeep goes up here. I took some damage at Walker, but it was 99% due to the welded rear and the snowy trails (12" to 18")

    paint, for the most part, is not one of the A+s on my truck /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif neither is that IFS, but we'll see how that goes /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    down here, i don't get to go out much - i can't afford to break parts just yet(school, daily driver, yadda yadda blah). the main offroading i do here is out at the beaches and down some muddy backroads or vacant fields. when i get up there, i'll have more time, money, and driveable land to be more committed /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I like the wheeling for the most part, I am starting to loose difficult spots to go, however when it gets wet some trails are a totaly diffrent animal. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I live in Ellensburg WA (on the other side of the mts. about 125 miles away from Seattle). Over here we have rock climbing, mud, the Shoestring trail, etc... on the West side there is Reiter Pit area, and some others too. There is a club up here called 2bigbroncos that kind of caters to fullsize rigs and does alot of wheelin' on the west side. Lots of people there run Fords, but they have an open membership for any type of vehicle and know alot of good wheelin areas.

    I have a confession to make. I also own and wheel a ford. I have a ford bronco. I've wheeled with 3 Big Broncos. Their website is http://www.2bigbroncos.com/
