Here's a hilarious video of the kid popping a bead while running the mollies on the south loop. A friend running tail gunner videoed it and the audio is pretty good too. The kid is 20 years old.

We will be running the 6.7 mile 4x4 loop trail, it is rated easy. We will be meeting local wrangler forum members, who know the area and trail. They will be with us to show us the different parts of the trail and spurs of the trail.

Discover Pass is “REQUIRED” and enforced at the State forest.

We will meet at the Safeway located in Belfair Washington.

Safeway
23961 NE State Route 3
Belfair, Washington 98528

Gather: 0930 am
Leave: 1000 am

Portland Oregon (I-5 Bridge) to Belfair Washington, 147 miles about 2.5 hours driving time.
I-5 North to Exit 104 the Highway 101 exit (104 miles)
101 east to Shelton, WA (17.1 miles)
Shelton, WA to Belfair, WA north on Highway 3 (26.3 miles)
Arrive at the Belfair Safeway

We will have a caravan for those that are driving up and back on the same day. There are some going up the night before and staying at a motel or camping. There may be some staying up there on Saturday night after the run.

For those that are caravanning up, we will meet before 7am at the Gee Creek Rest Area (I-5 NB Washington exit MP11 just north of the I-5 / I-205 junction) and leave at 7am sharp as we need to be in Belfair, WA by 9:30 am. Make sure you have a full tank of before arriving. We will make a stop at the Scatter Creek Rest Area MP 90 north of Centralia, WA.

This is a long day so have yourself and your vehicle prepared for the day. It is over a 300 mile round trip depending on where you are coming from. The same day drivers will be at least 12 hours out and about, 3hrs drive up 6 hours 4x4ing and 3hrs drive home depending on stops. Belfair Safeway has gasoline, Starbucks, rest rooms, and food for the day. Make sure you bring water, food, snacks, money, and dress for the changing weather.
Count me in!!!

For clarification, the Tahuya run is specifically a "Wrangler" run?

Where is the toll bridge located? What road way is it located on? Can you use another route and go around?

I am not familiar with where you all are headed, but here is a list of tolls (where and how much) for Wa.

http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/Tolling/TollRates.htm

It sounds awesome. I also have to work that day. I wish I even had an option to call in stupid! (Starting April, I have weekends off.... I can hardly wait.)

You have to cross the narrows. Tacoma to the island. Only way unless you do a ferry. When you get off i5 and head West you will see it. Haha! Cant miss it. Just make sure you have 5 bucks. The cash only lane is the fastest.

They do take debit but its the slow lane. And you only pay going back.


Tahua is easy but has fun little stuff they keep building and adding on.

Robert is I think. At least he mentioned it. I mentioned a meeting place (Starbucks) in Tumwater. And a Pizza Place a couple of blocks down from that if folks want to make it up for dinner. The Hotel 6 is at exit 102.

Yellow Jacket has been worked a little by QuadraPaws. The rocks on the right were moved over to the left to tighten up the left side a bit and logs were placed along the right to keep the rocks from being walked off to the right. We can try up it or down it.

Also, Shawn, all the folks here are south, so they won't even make Tacoma. They will take the 101 to 3 to Belfair route. That's the way we go as well. North of JBLM would benefit from the toll bridge. the rest of us just cruise up the west side of the sound.
