Good deal, Shane. Welcome!

Turning wrenches and drinking beer works.

Shane, Welcome!

I used to live west of you in Lake Stevens near LSHS. Stick around for a while! Lots to talk about around here! There are several members in Marysville, Everett, and Snohomish area.

Again, welcome!
Mark

That's because a lot of knucklers list their location as 'WA' instead of a city.

Hey,
Scott is probably the closest member to you (Marysville, close to Getchel).
I am probably the second closest. Kayak point.

We are on the trail almost every month, but family and other activities tend to dictate that. Keep an eye open on the board and if you want to tag along till your rig is ready you are more than welcome.

Welcome,
Michael

PS. I heard a rumor that Pilchuck was closed to wheeling in the snow? Do you know anything about that?

Re: new member

Good to hear. I was unsure exactly what closed meant. I have only done the main road (usually get stuck behind a traffic jam on the way back down). It is trully amazing the number of people up there on a weekend with brand new trucks on street tires with no gloves, shovels, or chains and they all seem to be stuck in the ditches

You are more than welcome to ride along as long as I have room.

Michael
