If you have not heard of it the Washington Backcountry Discovery route runs from Oregon to Canada using mostly logging roads. Many club members had expressed interest in running the Discovery route but did not have time to run the whole thing. As a result we decided to run the route in sections with the goal of running the whole thing over time. The plan was to wheel one section then overnight in Wenatchee and run a different section before heading back home. Continue reading “BCDR July 2017”
Karl brought the idea of a Rock Crawl Event at Reiter to the club and asked if the club was interested in sponsoring the event. The club being the club that it is said sure we can do that and thus began the 4 months of planning and preparation to make it happen. To be fair Karl to most of the work and a couple of the Tamers and Tamer friends helped when asked but most of the Tamers just showed up on the day of the event and did what needed to be done to make it happen. From all reports received the event was liked and there are already questions about when we are going to do another. No answer to that yet. Continue reading “Reiter Recovery July 2017”
A few months ago Karl came to a club meeting and suggested the idea of a Rock Crawling Competition at Reiter in order to help get the work out about the great work which the team building the trails has been doing. The fact that it would be fun also kind of factored into it I would have to guess. In any event the Tamers said they sponsor and help to put on the event along with a few members from the 4wd community. Karl headed up the organization and did most of the heavy lifting to make this event possible so thank you Karl. The hope is that we can do this again next year conditions permitting. For now here are a few pictures from the days events. Continue reading “Retier Rock Crawl Competition July 2017”

Family and I did not get to leave the house until about 5pm because of other commitments and I was really dreading traffic but as it turned out the drive over only took about 15 minutes more than usual since traffic was nowhere near as bad as I thought it would be. We got to the campsite about 8pm to find that Gary and Casey were already there as was Jon as well as John and Mariscal. Continue reading “Manastash July 2017”

From all accounts of everyone present if you did not make the father’s day run then you missed a great run. Being that the usual haunt was not going to work this year the Tamers decided to head over to Liberty for the weekend run. Cassidy and I left Friday morning and 4:45am to make sure we were early enough to secure a camp site for the Tamers that were going to spend the weekend. We arrived at 6:45am to find that there was just one site left which we promptly setup camp in and then went to breakfast at the little cafĆ© down the highway a few miles. Once fed it was off to get a load of wood for that evening and then a cruise around the forest service roads looking for geocaches. Continue reading “Liberty Fathers Day June 2017”

After much back and forth we decided to try Cedar Creek which worked out since Rick and Jennifer were going to be there on Wed and could work on getting an area for the group. Continue reading “Tillamook May 2017”

Having left my rig pulled off up on the gravel – Iām standing calf-deep in brambles and thorns off the steep downside of the main road ā
First note to self ā āBring leather gloves down with you instead of leaving them in the rig.ā
Second note to self while barely able to move feet tangled and twisted up in brambles ā āA pair of pruning shears or a machete would be really handy right now.āĀ (I now remember that from my last time in this positionā¦.)
Third note to self ā āI need to remember to bring some of the younger buckaroos and buckaristas along with me and show THEM the lower side of the road where trash should be getting pulled out!ā
It started off the day with Sunshine and birds singingā¦uumm ohh wait. No it was actually too dang early and raining miserably hard with warm temperatures and surely would prove to be an adventurous and interesting day. Continue reading “Beckler March 2017”

Ok ok, im not a morning person.
Today, was not so usual for us.Ā Our normally prepared events, were interrupted by another matter on Friday, so Saturday morning at OāDark Thirty, we discover neither rig had gas, and theĀ Zuk had no spare tire or winch attached.Ā OK, we will need to leave a bit earlier than planned to get gasā¦.then, we discovered that both the trail rigs Disco passes had expired!Ā Well, we certainly canāt go out without those, so I jumped online to purchase online, and have our confirmation #ās on hand, if asked.Ā At the disco pass website, I find a message saying āIām sorry, we are not able to offer Disco pass purchases online right now, please check back at a later timeā.Ā Well, this wonāt do as we need to be out of the house in a few minutes to get gas, and still get to WV before our 10am meet up time.Ā So, out of the house we run, so we can gas up, then stop and get disco passes.Ā At the gas station, we find that Gary has forgotten his wallet at home.Ā Hoping this is not how the rest of our day will go, I run for Disco passes, while Gary runs for his wallet, and we meet back up at the Ace Hardware parking lot, to blow the Pop Cycle Stand!
