Tahuya is known for "breaking stuff"... even though most of the trails don't amount to much more than forest service roads.

Good for him! So does my mom, and I support her decision. How can I judge ROM for the same behavior? I choose not to, and I have lost friends that make smoking pot their only hobby.

While I can see statements like that "stirring the pot" (pun intended), I have no quarrels with ROM and I thought he had a lot to contribute.

John, we'll wheel together again someday!

There ya go...see how they are?

My contributions to that forum were good, informative and fun. Why they need to encourage others to think less of me, is beyond me. There's a thread over there called; "Old Fashioned Lynching" that I authored. It's a good read and is the epitome of my differences with them. I suspect that it will soon be deleted as it doesn't lend itself to the objectives of their forum, IN THEIR JUDGMENT.

In summary, it's my contention they've been lied to by other members, and made decisions regarding me and someone else based on those lies, and continue to defend their decisions based on the same lies...

I'm reminded of the old saying, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink...

Thank you for your thoughtful comments billzcat1, I genuinely appreciate it. Regarding that post he referred to, it was taken completely out of context. It came from a thread called "Oozo" on WAVJC that I authored. It attempted to stimulate dialog on drinking/drugging on the trail. It was somewhat successful in achieving dialog. That statement of mine was an attempt to encourage honesty from others who might post in that thread. And no, I don't smoke pot or drink on the trails. Though no one ever bothered to ask me, they prefer to "assume".

And yes, we'll wheel together again if I have anything to say about it...thanks again...P.O.T. = Piss on them...

We do miss your informative write up over there. They provided a lot more details than most any other write-ups I've come across. Also enjoy how people over there don't trash talk each other when people ask questions or post write ups like some other forums I've been on. All too often, someone over here on JF comes in to the tech section and asks a question that has probably been answered 100's of times already, then someone says "use the search button", or someone says "well, we just talked about that last week".

That doesn't happen on smaller forums that form a tighter knit community. People on bigger forums tend to do it and get away with it because there's more "anonymity" in bigger forums, so people tend to try and "push the envelope" a bit.

Since this thread is about Tahuya from Seattle,let me swing her back on point. The ferry was a great trip,my bud showed up at my crib in Ballard about 7:15,we were on perfect time for the 8:30.I did find a well chaffed trans cooler line right before we left,I put some abrasion sleeve on it and crossed my fingers.I was too fired up not to wheel,could have been a bad decision.We got to the trail about 9:30 and had a great ride,met friendly people right at the trail head and along the way. When we got done, the ferry timing was not good,so we opted to head around the narrows.Long story short,my navigator guided us a wrong turn and we ended up going all the way to Olympia and around. Made for a long ride back,LOL. Was a great day,rode it all,and could have been home by lunch if we had left one ferry earlier. Lucille performed fantastic,put the lockers and entire rig through a good shakedown,now about those trans lines...... Thanks for the help here,all!

It's ironic my thread got hijacked to debate the use of legal medicines.Kinda silly I think.ROM,your welcome at my campfire anytime:-)

Sounds like a good time, even with the detour through Oly.

It was for sure, driving to trails, wheeling and driving home after was the original goal when selecting this jeep to buy. It did all I asked very well.I was worried about that line all the way,but it was a great day. Taking a person off-roading for the first time is always a pleasure,everyone loves it:-)

RedJeepGuy1; I apologize, I genuinely thought you were admin from the other forum.

LordWrench, it seems I owe you an apology as well, for my part in the hijack of your thread. And a thank you, for the kind words...

Regarding Tahuya, I swear there's a curse out there. Tahuya comes off as the most benign of places to wheel, yet, I've had damage there on several occasions...that said, I come out unscathed from the Manastash area. Naches, Evans Creek and Elbe. Go figure, eh?

The first place I ever wheeled was Tahuya...came out with two healthy rocker panel dents and a scraped-up front bumper. Of course...wheeling stock can do that. Some of the guys I was with gave me some tips that saved me from a lot more damage on certain areas. Having a single locker would have also made a lot of difference...I had to use a lot more speed than I was comfortable with to make it through a couple sections.

Evans Creek tends to be my nemesis as far as damage (too many tight trails).

But every time I go to Tahuya I almost always have to readjust my draglink.

I got bored yesterday and went to Tahuya, and bent a wheel on a big rock :-(
