Nightcrawl If you havnt been to WA, OR, ID before just know that there are more Forest Roads than asphalt in the mountains. When you go wheeling out here it can have an expeditionary feel. You can easily drive 50-70 miles on forest road with many places to wheel along your journey, with hundreds of places to cast-blast-camp!

I figured as much, I had an idea in mind of what I wanted I do to my rig but I definitely didn't want to assume and end up having to change everything again lol

Some people are touchey about this but does anyone use the limb risers? They say they are helpful since the trails are so tight.

I was thinking the addition of snow chains might help so I'm thinking that would be my best bet. Is there a lot of people with rock crawling suspensions? Around here is mainly to clear bigger tires and more ground clearance and not to many rocks

I think there are two other locations in the Olympic rain forest and also down in Olympia, I can't remember their names. Anybody want to correct me or chime in with more?

I imagine it will be a very different experience.
I will definitely check out some of those videos. Thanks for the info, I think it will pretty different as well.

Heading to the Pacific NW from Florida

Hi everyone,
I currently live in Florida but will be moving to Washington in the next couple of years. My jeep has a few mods on it but is mostly stock. Could anyone tell me what kind of trails there are in WA? Down in FL the biggest thing is mud, however I imagine things are a little different up there. For instance, I was thinking of going with BFG All terrains since they are a pretty well rounded off-road tire but I figured I'd find out what some of the locals run and if they'd be good in the snow. Any info is greatly appreciated!
