Sure, why not. Let's plan it for maybe 3 or 4 weeks out (beginning of March) to give people time to plan accordingly. Last time we did it in Renton. I think it's a pretty reasonable location for all since we have members a few hours North, and a few hours South.

I think a wheeling trip should be planned soon too.

Traffic on Fridays does suck. I think we'd shoot for Saturday between 12 & 2pm. The resturants are not very packed at that time so we can just sit and BS for a while, plus it gives the out-of-towners time to travel if the wish.

In May/June, I'd like to pre-run the Naches area to get familiar with it before our event. At least cover one or two trails.

I think we ought to plan an outing in March to Reiter or maybe Tahuya. NE1 up for it?

Steve, I'm up to do the pre-run of Naches with you. I've never been there, but I'm itching to wheel. Any thought about combining a trail run with this up-coming meeting? I'll try to make that one way or another, but March looks pretty busy, so a trail run would help me to show up.

It's my guess is 15 minutes Northwest of Yakima of you know where that is. If not according to Mapquest it's about 2 and a half hours Northeast of Vancouver.

PS If there's a trip there, do you need to be a member to go or can you just have an XJ? :p

Exclamation running naches

Do you guys want to run naches, or chinook? I'm more familiar with the chinook trails, but I can probably kidnap my brother for a weekend for the naches trails.....he pretty well knows 'em like the back of his hand. I'm up for anything, long as I can make it home! If ya need more info, gimme a jingle!

Would that be a long distance phone call then? Just kidding, when I hear "gimme a jingle" I think via the phone.

I think running Naches would be sweet, I've up in that area once, and it's really really fun. I'd like to go back again someday, my experience there was just awsome.

The area Ladywolf is refering to I believe is the Rimrock Lake area,It`s a more rugged area ,not good for stock or next to stock vehicle. The Nachess area is a good mix for any vehicle. There is usually snow in the upper areas past Memorial Day.
