    my rig needs to see some trails! who wants to show me a good place to wheel? i'm an unexperienced wheeler, so something on the low-moderate range would be good. i don't want to just drive over a dirt trail - need some real wheeling, but i'm new, so don't wreck my truck the first time i'm out. :D someone show me some trails! :bow:

    You can get the permit at GI JOES like I did . same price without the dang wait :wink1: . Goat mt is of Hillockburn rd . It's out in between estacada and colton . You can meet me here and follow me out there . That place kicks a$$ if you have a quad . Lot's of trails for us big rig's . Bruce .

    Hey guy's ! I just got back from Goat mountain and there is a bunch of snow up their and it's pretty deep in the higher elevation . I took the little sammi up and just checked everything out and most of the trail's are really muddy and rocky :bow: . I noticed a few small trees (3-6 inches in dia .)have fallen accross some of the trails so I will bring a axe and my small chain saw :D . Look's like we might have some fun . I tried to go up one of the roads that had at least a foot of snow but the sammi had crappy at tire so I just turned around . Snow runs from my 42"tsl swamper on the burb :haha: . Well I gotta go make the mount for my winch and get it installed . We may need it :thumb: .

    I would never take anyone on a trail that I thought their rig would break on . There are some easy trails too ! Do you have a locker in your 14 bolt ? we can go do the easy stuff first and you can watch us men go do the hard stuff :haha:j/k . Besides we need someone to take pictures . It's really not that bad . Hell if I would have had a rear locker and some 29" swampers on the sammi I would have went almost any where I wanted to day :wink1: .

    ok guys, so when and where are we meeting up on saturday? i think that out near brent's house might be good, as it's kind of on the way out there for those of us who might live north or west of oregon city. i'd like to meet up at 9, if that's cool, but i'm open to other times, just no later than 11, please. i'd like to get a good day of wheeling in w/ out it getting dark on us.

    Colby , I posted a thread about wheeling up at goat mt . I was thinking that all of us meeting at the Oregon City Shopping around 8:30 to 9:00 am and we can take Redland road out to springwater rd and then to Hillockburns rd . It's about a 1/2 drive or so . So far it looks like only 4 of us are going . you still got my cell phone number ?

    yep, i still have your number. all that other stuff sounds good too. so i just got off the phone w/ my tire people and they say that my spare is on national backorder - do you have an extra tire/wheel for the 8 lug set up which i might be able to use as a spare if need be? maybe off of that early 70's truck you've got in your back yard?
