The beer and firearms weren't in our group. They were from a Jeep club out of eastern Washington. They were out drinking and shooting away from where they were all stopped..

That makes me mad when people do that. When ever I go up to Evan's or Greenwater and look arround you can see empty shell casings Drunk people with guns realy scare me.

cool... just wondered since a friend of mine was up in the hills above Greenwater and happened across some yahoos firing off a few rounds, so he was wondering the same.

there used to be two gravel pits along FR 70 where people would target practice freely... that was until some dad killed his son because he didn't verify that no one was down range before firing, and his kid happened to be downrange checking ot the target. It was accidental, and a tragic accident... seems like it was probably 5+ years ago, or so.

I think for safety's sake it's a good idea to maybe program the USFS ranger office's phone number in yer cell phone, though no one may be there to answer the phone on weekends, but write down license numbers, or photograph them casually so the yahoos don't see you doing said photographing, then report them to the law enforcement or forest service. Naches (FR19) has regular patrols by Yakima county deputies as well as USFS LE staff.

This was on the west side however.. And cell phone signal is non-existant.. But they'll get what's coming to them, it's only a matter of time..

Oh so it was at the dealership in Centralia? right... i Was there a couple of days ago to see if they had the locking nut key to fit on my spare tire bolt... but sadly hey didn't. I did however see a Yellow TJ in the garage that I thought might be yours with the hood up being " worked" on. Glad it is finished. treat her right!

From the RUBI forum

Naches trail July 28th
We are running the trail from Greenwater to Funny/Moon rocks and back. Meeting at 9am in the parking lot of Safeway in Enumclaw. I am up for setting up tents and coming home Sunday if anyone else would like to break it up into two days.


I plan on going

Maybe after they get over the naches trail. There is no body damage on Naches unless you are a complete idiot.

sounds like there will be a huge group, which translates to a very slow go getting over naches... more rigs equals more chance for stuff to go wrong, even though the Naches is a pretty tame trail.

Deltabravo they could just be running FS roads.......Naches is a trail system....just like any trail system there are easy trails and difficult trails......everyone here talks about carnage....and body damage.....those things can happen driving on a road.....put mud, trees, and water together and depending on the individuals driving experience and style....there is the potential for somebody to damage there rig...or worse yet.....a roll over...... X you put up a post that is not 100% correct. When we were there on Memorial day we were witness to 2 roll overs and both drivers were experienced and had vehicles built to the hilt......no idiots.....and 5 other vehicles went over the exact same spot....just depends on the line that you take....if there is a recovery operation things can happen....so anytime that you go wheeling you can incur some sort of damage to your rig.....so have fun and wheel safe......when people here carnage and damage in threads they get nervous and some don't even go out.....we have a great sport that we should promote responsibly.......I love running the Busy Wild at Elbe .....but you mention it and folks get scared.....we ran it with Timber tamers and it was a blast.....very challenging....tests your skills and your vehicle....but no one in the group had damage other than a badly slipping clutch due to mud.
