Thought I'd add myself to this thread.

You can check out my 2007 Rubicon here:

http://www.dog-walker.us/07Rubicon.htm

I belong to the North Idaho Trail Blazers and the Washington Off-Highway Vehicle Alliance ( http://www.wohva.org ) as well as a couple of other clubs.

Check out my "Inland Empire Calendar of 4x4 Events" here:

http://www.dog-walker.us/4x4Calendar/plans.cgi

Also check out the rest of my web site - lots of info plus a link to my PhotoBucket album with my off-roading trips.

Let's get together sometime!

Let me be the first to (advance) welcome you to the Spokane area!

If the last two winters are any indication (96 and 97 inches of snow respectively; normal snowfall around 40/48 inches), you'll be glad you own a Jeep - better that it's a JK!

Once you get here and get somewhat settled in, give me an e-mail shout and we can get together.

Unfortunately there is not a lot of off-roading areas in the immediate Spokane area - other than the 600 acre 7 Mile ORV Area (web page here: http://www.xmxpro.com/Catalog/WSP-RVSP-ORV%20Area.htm.

You either have to go to the center of the state - couple of dunes areas - or into northern Idaho Panhandle (lots of off-roading opportunities; or 90 miles north of Spokane to the Colville National Forest to 5 trails.

Regardless, when you get here, I can show you all the places!

Again - WELCOME!

Paul

Unfortunately the Colville NF and much of the northern Idaho Panhandle trails are off limits (read that as closed) during the winter due to the amount of snow! Have to blame that on the USFS Travel Management Planning process! Anyway, with lots of feet of snow in the mountains, unless you have very high ground clearance, you would not get very far. We just enjoy it in late spring to early summer. By mid-summer, there is usually a fire ban in place and because these trails have less than 10 feet clear area on either side, we can not drive on them so our off-road time in the Colville and northern Idaho panhandle can be limited, but we do have a lot of good times while we can and the scenery/views from some of these trails is magnificent (check out my off-road trips Photobucket web pages here: http://s110.photobucket.com/albums/n...p575/Off-Road/ especially the 2006-08-19 Colville and the NITB Cabin Fever trail rides.

Sorry, not into fishing, but be aware that starting this last June 1st, you must have either a Passport or an "enhanced driver's license" to enter and return from Canada. Fortunately WA state does issue enhanced driver's licenses!

Since Fairchild AFB is on the far west side of Spokane, the nearest community/city is Airway Heights. There are a lot of apartments there - if you don't mind that type of housing. A lot of folks live on the south hill but that's a distance from Fairchild and the traffic on the south hill is autrocious - IMO! And I drive school bus so I have some knowledge of the Spokane traffic patterns - which are terrible in most parts of the city!

Check out my 07 Rubicon web page here: http://www.dog-walker.us/07Rubicon.htm

Looking forward to meeting you!

OK. Also, if you have Google Earth, check out Spokane, You'll at least get the general idea of Spokane's layout as well as what's all around!

Send me an e-mail off the forum so I'll have your e-mail address.

I'm in, if they allow us to do that!
I say that because the WA DNR has already raised the fire threat one level and if the USFS puts a fire ban into effect this summer (probably will due to low moisture content of the surface grasses/weeds/etc.), we will not be able to do the 5 4x4 trails in the Colville.

I'm a member of the North Idaho Trail Blazers and they wheel every month, so may we'll have to (again!) go to Idaho to do our wheeling.

Shoot me an e-mail so I can get more information and find out what your interested in!

Thanks,
