PNW's Trail Jamboree 2008
 
This was my first organized weekend ( turned out to be a week) wheeling trip. Had a blast.
We spend 5 days wheeling in an area called Naches, which is in the central eastern part of Washington. This is a huge ORV park that is maintained by DNR and the USFS. Beautiful country.

This was day 2. We went on the Naches Trail. This trail was used by settlers in wagons. Hard to believe they drug wagons down the same trail we jeeped on.

Yeah we had a blast. Great people good weather. The White CJ was the Trail Host's rig. He drove with his arm is a sling. He had the rig pointed down hill a few days prior to the run and had to get something out of the back. Turns out the Tire swing that is on the back did not want to stay open and closed full force on his arm.

Man, that is some absolutley gorgeous country side!

Beautiful.
When was this? Looks too warm to be recent.
I'd love to go on a big run like that.

This was last July 2008. PNW4WDA puts on their annual Trail Jam every year. This year is the 20th anniversary. As far as warm goes.... the second day was like 38 in the morning and never did get up past 50. Rest of the time was in the high 70's. Washington weather:rolleyes:

I know the feeling, we're in Spokane.

Very cool pics, thanks for sharing.
