Moving to the Crescent City Ca Brookings Or area. Looking for tips

As the title says moving up to the NW coast next week, any clubs in the Crescent City area? I have been in the desert for the last 10 years and wheeled in the rocks and sand for the last 2. Gonna enjoy the rain and really looking forward to some good forest trails!! Any tips? Thanks!!

Let me start by saying; I'm sorry! I believe I saw a club listed on here out of Brookings not to long ago. There's a good group of guys out of Medford I like to wheel with. They have a facebook page if you are on there. Southwest Oregon Jeeps. They came up my way not to long ago, and I'm sure they would like to get over to the coast also. I will be down this summer just before the Rubicon for a moon-light run with them out of the Applegate area. I'm also going with them up to Browns Camp which is out of the Portland area. I know they want to run the McGrew trail when it opens for the season, which is not to far from you also.

It's a nice place to visit, but I couldn't see myself living there. It's on the small side for me. Oregon coast towns are pretty depressing to me. What brings you to that area?

Pelican Bay State prison. Nice state job, plus it gets me out of the seventh circle of hell which I call home now. And like I told the wife if it sucks too bad we can always continue north we just have to get out of this place 10 years of toothless desert dwellers is enough for me.

I forgot that's down there. Yeah a solid job. You are in for a heck of a climate change. There is a lot of nice country there though. I don't know if you will be able to get away from the toothless folk. haha.

Maybe all the trees will distract me from them! I'm just looking to be able to teach the kids to fish and camp and wade in tidepools and all that good stuff. All the stuff we can't do here in the dry. Do some good foresty type runs that sort of thing.

Very cool stuff. If you like the outdoors there's a ton to do.

Yep that's what we are hoping for to make up for all the years hiding in the AC here.

I personally like Florence. Much better than Crescent City. Newport is pretty cool too. I know a handful of the guys in Medford, and went through some of the McGrew with a few of em last year. Good group of people.

Yeah Florence is a bit to far north from where I need to be, looks nice though! Looking forward to exploring the area.

First, Semper Fi Doc, thank you for your service !
I was born in Coos-Bay and lived my first 18 years in Brookings Ore. Joined the Marines after graduating in 1978. I still have family down there and in Gold Beach. Best places (used to be) back up behind Mt. Emily. Quail Prairie, all back in there. Go up the Chetco River or up the Windchuck(sp) River to find old logging roads to play on. I haven't been wheeling back in there for alot of years, but it used to be fun/good. Also go back up old hiway 101. (Just N of Brookings) Lots of old roads to explore up in there. Have fun and stay safe.
I have been with the Washington State DOC for the last 22 years.
Good luck in your new carrier.

Thanks Marine, I appreciate the kind words, I'm taking notes here of all the hidden trails. Thanks again!

Hey are you moved yet? I'm going to be in the Southern Oregon area next weekend. I'm going out with some of the guys down there if you feel like driving over to the Grants Pass area (last I heard that was the plan).

I'd have to second the Medford guys. I haven't wheeled with them (yet) but they all seem like a great group. About 8 of them offered up a weekend to help me install a lift..
In Douglas County there are 3 of the bigger groups that run around, X-Treme Offroaders, Umpqua Valley Timber Cruisers and Ruff Country.
