Any wheelers in the Seattle area?

Hey guys, I am looking to meet some people around Seattle that enjoy wheeling, camping, drinking, and stuff like that. I still consider myself new to the world of wheeling, although I have had my jeep for a few years now, I would like some people who I can hit up local orv areas with, and grab a beer with when we can't wheel, etc. Just some like minded people who want to have a good time and expand their group of friends like I do. I am in the north end of seattle (near UW). Let me know if there are any clubs I can join or if you are just down to hang out sometime! Jeeping on the solo sucks! Also, I am a mechanic by trade and am great at lending a hand and also have a lot of fancy/ specialty tools if you like that sort of thing.....if not, I have a basic craftsman tool kit to bring out and I know how to use it, lol!

-Evan

Hey another Seattle area ZJ. I live in Federal Way.

some trips get posted here in advance, like that tahuya one this weekend, and the elbe snow poker run last weekend was a blast.

I also check washington virtual jeep club, wavjc.org and pnwjeeps.com for other local stuff, also hilife offroad on facebook is a good group of guys around the sound. hopefully cya around sometime.

I live near 85th and I-5 and been here 18 months and havent been wheeling yet.

I am down to start finding people to go jeeping with.

pnwjeep.com is a local site but only had a meet and greet and i missed it both years.

Jack,
Sorry I missed your post, not really sure how I managed to do that or I would have invited you to meet us at Belfair yesteday. I am just off of 65th over near magnuson park. I actually used to live in Ballard right on 85th and Dibble (just W of 8th). I sure don't miss having to drive 85th everyday, lol! We had a great turnout yesterday, and hopefully will do it again soon, I'll make sure to let you know when something is going on! Hope to see you around seattle

Wow, Evan, you live close to where I used to live on NE 65th and 40th Ave NE . . . just over the hill from Magnuson.

I'm up in Kenmore now, however.

Definitely tune into the forum here as runs get posted regularly. Or. . . post up a run yourself!

Check the sticky at the top of the WA subforum for suggestions on where to go. Most of those places will opening up in late spring / fall but you can run Walker, Tahuya, and probably Elbe in the winter.

Sorry I missed ya when you were living down here, but Kenmore isn't that far away at all. I have been lurking here for too long. This thread started the change from lurker to active member, lol. Met some guys last weekend at Belfair, and have been talking about the next run already....probably Evan's Creek, But I will definitely start a thread once we get some more plans made

Always bring a compass, it is awkward to have to eat your friends.
