    Someone mentioned beer? lol j/k.

    New guy here.....I *should* have my explorer ready-ish, and have the 9th off from work....will probably drive up on the 6th after work. I'll give 50/50 odds on if i get it done or not since I work 6 days a week. Have a few questions on the area, though, if anyone has time?

    Thanks!

    Well, I was planning on trailering up(I'mcoming from Portland)....does anyone drive their Explorers to the trail, 'wheel, and drive home? Some of the pics I came across look pretty challenging!! Would be a major bonus if i can just drive my X up and back....been almost a year and a half since I've been able to drive it!

    Actually, any information on the area would be awesome, have seen a few links off of google, and it looks like some fun 'wheeling.

    I'm hopefully gonna have the X in the garage and engine ready to come out tomorrow....already have vacation time off for this little trip, and time's running out!!

    Can't wait:) Sorry for rambling....beyond exhausted.

    If you have the option of towing I would tow it. The last 2 times I did not tow my rig. I needed my trailer:thumbsup:

    The first couple of times I went wheeking back in 03 and 04 I did not have a trailer and was fine.

    I will look and see if I can find some pictures of our camping spots.

    Towing and not towing dictates what you can and cannot do on the trail. I agree, if you can tow, do it. Better to be safe than sorry.

    Joe, your right foot is about 10lbs heavier than your left. Same with Kevin and Ben ;)

    97, yes several of us drive to, run trails and drive home. I even pull a tent trailer to camp in.

    The Naches area has a wide variety of trails of varying levels.

    The Naches Trail (with the exception of the lower West) can be run with 31" tires and a little frame rub.

    Ravens Roost is very fun and can be run with a stock X except the last climb but there are several 'outs' and the FS road is usually less than 100yrds away.

    Just remember, tow points and/or winch and if you have to drive it home, drive the trails with that in mind.

    There is some rocks to play on once you get up on top. If you know your limits they are fun if you do not know then they can be expensive.

    The one pictures of camp, even thou you can tell it was a very cold night
