Grapeview checking in........

Grapeview is in Mason County - near Belfair. (Which is 15 miles from Bremerton)

I was bored today and went to the DNR's ORV Park that's near Belfair.

I checked out the 4x4 course and had a great time.

Since it was the middle of the week, I was the only one there. The course is on State DNR land and is open to the public for no charge.

Since I was by myself and my stock '00 TJ Sport has open differentials and balding Goodyear GSAs, it didn't take too long before I fugured that I may be in over my head.

For those of you that have more capable rigs, it looked like it would be a fun course to complete.

If anyone wants more info, just post a message and I'll try to provide better information on how to get there.

Yeah, i am sick of sitting on my ***, and would love to get a bit greasy, I'm sure we all have our little or big spring list starting to form. I know i have a few parts that need to go on and a few parts that need to be serviced or tweaked. So count me in for in for any wrench fest, I have done or helped do most of the basics. I'm I-5 mile mark 120.

There I said it. no offense, just a friendly poking from the girl who has not swapped out her safari top for anything but some summer sun since last march!

What's a little snow in exchange for fresh air?

I think there may be a small group heading out this weekend. I can go if it's on Sunday.

Ha thats the thing, my heater doesnt work and a scarf is not "Manly" enough for me. I tuff it in a jacket. Then again i dont have A/C so i dont want it to get too hot either, like not above 85 degrees.

Those of you that have done them before, how long would it take to do a BL/MML/BB (inc shocks and JKS Quick discos)? That's all I'm going to end up doing in the shop and want to plan a start time next Saturday that is good for everyone, yet not too early so we can sleep in

Wrench'n

Body lift is easy provided that you don't break any bolts and there are none rusted so bad that you end up breaking..typical 2 person job no issues 2 hours....The JKS disco are easy provided you are a welder and or know a welder.....1 hr....I can't say on the suspension...never had coils....

Welder? The sway bar disco's are bolt and pin connected, so I figure it shouldn't take too long. All together I was thinking 4-6 hours..

4-6 hours is about right. Don't know why you would need a welder to install JKS Discos - just a pickle fork and a big hammer.

Sorry for the last minute announcement and I don't mean to hog your trip, Jbwolfish, but . . .


Evan's Creek Shoutout
A couple of guys from my club are heading down to Evan's Creek tomorrow (Saturday). We will be LEAVING at 8:30am SATURDAY from the Chevron station in Burnett:

Google or mapquest the following meeting point:

14204 SR 165 E.
Buckley, WA 98321

If anyone is doing their own run and needs directions on getting from the Chevron station to Evan's Creek trail head click here.

JBwolfish, maybe we'll see you there or maybe somewhere on the trails if you want to do your own run. But we'll be in the area.


Travel Times
If there are people who haven't been to Evan's Creek, you can probably factor the following for travel times.

Bellevue, South Seattle = 1 hr
Kent, Auburn, Puyallup, Tacoma = 30 min
Kenmore, Bothell, Woodinville = 1.5 hr


Trail Conditions
No guarantees on this expedition. My understanding is there is snow up there. A group who ran up about 2 weeks ago reported a soft, slippery powdery snow under a icy crust topped with about a foot of fresh snow. And that once the icy crust was broken through the power just wouldn't compress and offered zero traction.

If we can make it to Evan's Creek we'll try to run the lower trails which hopfully won't have too much snow due to tree cover. The upper ones may be under too much snow (4000+ ft elev).

If Evan's Creek is a bust we might try some other trails or snowed in roads up in the general area.

The bottom line is that with our group it may be a bit of an exploratory trip that will be very dependent on trail conditions.
