nwbronco Nope. Ashley is afoot. She was on the forum posting Rich's stock tires on the for sale section.

If you go south on I5 from Seattle, take hwy 16 exit towards Bremerton/Gig Harbor in Tacoma and just drive that all the way to the end you'll either have to stay right to go to Bremerton or exit left and follow the road into Belfair.

So, not too bad of a drive overall from Seattle.

NickDanger I've never actually done the trail, although I've kind of wanted to check it out since my Jeep is my DD too and it's not really built for anything too extreme yet. But, from what I've heard, yes, Tahuya is pretty easy.

I know some local clubs built some pretty difficult rock crawling stuff a few years ago, but I'm pretty positive there is bypasses around all that.

I think Tahuya is pretty much just like a 7 mile long oval with the big mud lake somewhere in the middle.

4x4n Thanks guys. Looks like going through Tacoma and over the narrows bridge is the way to go. Definitely going to try and make it on one of these soon, just depends on my work schedule.

One more question, this trail is fairly easy from my understanding, is that about right? I've never taken a jeep off road before, I did some with my Dakota that I had before the jeep. I think the short wheelbase will be a lot different. Don't want to try too extreme of stuff, this is my DD.
06-25-2012 02:27 PM
NickDanger no prob

Wasn't trying to correct you just figured I'd save him some time haha.

If he wants the scenic route then heading up 101 is definitely better ha

I think you can Mapquest it and the modify the route towards Olympia.

Aztinuz Thanks for posting up the video, great job on it. Had a blast out there.
06-24-2012 09:00 PM
Mr. Fish Good run. More videos to edit, but thought I'd post Az's. Great fun to watch that beast.

4x4n Hopefully I can join in on one of this trips this summer. What's the best way to get there from Seattle? I'd rather not take the ferry.
06-24-2012 05:09 PM
Aztinuz Had a great time out with you guys at Tahuya. Definitely enjoyed the rocks, wasn't expecting what I got to play on

nwbronco Another great day at Tahuya. Pics will be up soon.

Mr. Fish Ho. Lee. Crap. She has an account ...

06-22-2012 11:56 PM
PikaPrincess I'm excited!!! see you guys tomorrow!!!!
06-22-2012 11:24 PM
Aztinuz Yea I just did a lot of reading on the discover pass and also the orv permit. I guess I'll pick up a second one in the morning. Kind of a pain trying to have it as an orv here in WA it seems. Might be easier just to register it. Think I'll have quite a few questions for you guys tomorrow on the topic.
06-22-2012 11:08 PM
nwbronco Yep. The problem is that you can't use it for 2 vehicles at the same time. It is supposed to be hung from the mirror. Of course, I have never even pulled mine out of the console. I guess you could chance it.

Aztinuz Yea I picked up the discover pass yesterday, they said it was good for 2 vehicles?
06-22-2012 08:11 PM
nwbronco ^^^ What he said.

Make sure you have a Discover Pass. If you park your tow rig at the Day use area you are going to need 2 of them.
