Washington wheeling is everything that the stories say it is. We are slowly getting trails stolen from us, but there is a good group of wheelers and we work pretty hard on trail maint. and to keep them open.

I am Navy out here, Oak harbor is pretty nice. Alot of good things to keep the wife and I busy.

Check out Pnwjeep.com and nwwheelers.com Pretty popular wheeling communities. So in short come on out

Had an amazing day of beating on the Jeep.
Wheeled Evans Creek ORV in Washington. These trails are tons of fun, lot's of basic trails with an awesome mix of rocks and some epic hill climbs. I have more pictures, but these are a few of the highlights.

Since it doesn't look like i am gonna win GCOTM i will just have to put off the wax job and put some more dents in her.







These climbs resulted in a broken axle:

I love it up there at Evans Creek! When I lived down that way my wife and I went about once a week.

You guys have to see this ZJ perform. It is awesome! Makes me want to install an 8.8 in my TJ. I got hit by that mud you can see flying as he went through the pit. Good times!

Not beating on it at all, Just running it to it's full potential.

Touché man. It looks like it performs great. I would get some u-joint shafts and throw on some IRO Almost Alloys. How often do you break a shaft?

That is the first shaft i have ever broken on the D30. Running those CV style shaft's i knew they were the weak link. running U joint style shaft's i imagine i will never break a shaft.

Well guys this is more of a trip report than anything else.
Since summer time is winding down quickly around here i want to knock out as man PNW trails that i can.

This event was the PNWJEEP.com Meet and greet. Located at Naches in the Mt. Ranier national forest.
The place is famous for Funny rocks and Moon rocks. These are a moab like rock that is a pretty huge formation that frequents the pages of CRAWL magazine and has been the place for many large events. This event had a lot of big name industry guys which was cool to see their rigs and how they navigate full out buggys.

I was pretty intimidated running on the rocks. But i attempted what i was comfortable with since i had a 200 mile one way trip
Here are a few pictures of my rig, because this is my build thread. But there are lots of pictures in my other thread for this event.

Myself coming up the canyon on moon rocks:












Me getting up this nice little guy:



Flop where i almost did also:
