new to wheelin, wantin to get out there

Hey ya'll. Im just trying to get a base on what its like wheelin in the pacnw. Im in everett and 19 years old with a stock 2000 tj. Was hopin there was someone that knew some stuff that theyd be willin to pass on as far as places to go, conditions of things, and if a stock is trail drivable. Obviously not in rough stuff. But just a thought. Any help? Maybe a buddy in a similar scenario?

Tahuya is supposed to be pretty easy for stock rigs.

Tahuya is the perfect place to start out. It's got a lot of different stuff and almost the whole park can be done with a stock rig. They made portions (south loop) a little harder in the past year but it's still possible. There are a couple rock gardens that more well built rigs can play on. I might be taking a small group of different rigs that way on the 17th, you'd be more than welcome to join and play!

Once summer rolls around Naches Trail is a pretty fun trip that most stock Jeeps can do without too much trouble.

Harokid19, please fogive me if I come off sounding like a dad, but... It is always smart to go with a group of guys when you go out wheeling, have tools, some kind of recovery gear and know where you are. Get to know your Jeep, how it wheels and how to work on it. Do research, if you ever want to do modifications and spend your hard earned money wisely.

Most of all have fun and welcome!

We are heading out the 30-31 for an overnight run in the snow. Probably head over in the Little Naches area. We will meet at the truck stop in N.Bend for breakfast on the 30th at 8:00 am.

We don't require certain equipment, we would recommend tow points, fire extinguisher and possibly a cb. Snow runs only need more equipment if you are out in front, so if not equipped you probably won's be in front, you will be welcome to try though.
