We met up with everyone at the Safeway in Belfair. Everyone was on time, and we set out for the Elfendalh parking lot at precisely 9:06am. We got to the parking lot and there were still a few places to park and air down. The crew of the day consisted of: Bill in his big bad Yota, Travis in his red Rubicon, Evan in his LJ, Joe in his trusty TJ, Ryan and I in our JKU, our friend John in his â€śLil Donkeyâ€ť JKU and candidate want to be Ben in his 2017 JKU.
Weather said it wasnâ€™t supposed to rain on Saturdayâ€¦â€¦
On the drive over it was raining. I was thinking it was going to be a muddy, sloppy mess. Trails probably filled with water to capacity, but what actually happened was glorious. The skies opened up and beautiful sunshine filled our souls. It was warm!!!

Another trip to Tahuya, and only a mere 7 months after the trip here! We had wonderful weather for todayâ€”partly sunny, comfortably warm without being hotâ€”and no rain for today. After the trip we had last October when we found Tahuya to have really upped its game in challenge, we had a lot more rigs come along.

Saturday morning turned out looking more promising for the Timber Tamers monthly trail ride to Tahuya than last year: this year it wasnâ€™t raining!Â The weather forecast predicted sunshine and a high of 65F.Â (Well, that didnâ€™t happenâ€”high seemed to be upper 50s, and the marine fog didnâ€™t burn off until about 2:30 PM!)Â At least the weatherman got the part right about no rain!Â As it turned out, there hasnâ€™t really been rain in Tahuya since last spring, so the trails were all pretty dry.Â If weâ€™d had rain like last year (when it rained ALL. DAY. LONG., the difficulty would have been a lot greater for todayâ€™s ride!)

A few Tamers made the trek over to Tahuya to see what has changed since there has been a lot of work on the ORV area done recently. The saying “it is just Tahuya” held true once again with a broken Dana 35 resulting in a rig rescue. Here are a few pics from the adventure. Continue reading “Tahuya Oct 2017”
It is only Tahuya!Â Our good friend Roberto was heading to Tahuya to map out some of the new trails for a website. Â Heidi and I also joined in.Â I was looking for a milk run to get the CJ7 out on the trail.Â After all its only Tahuya.Â Â Continue reading “Tahuya July 2017”
Big thank you goes out to everyone who came out for a great day of wheeling.
We had a large turn out with over 20 rigs over half of which were female drivers. We also had many new wheelers one of which was just 16.Â We split the group up between newer drivers and those who have more experience. Call out to Ashley who despite the fear of god in her eyes tackled the trail like a pro. Continue reading “Tahuya Nov 2015”
It wasnâ€™t quite planes, trains and automobiles â€“ but it was ferries and four wheel drives.Â As Auto-M and I pulled up in her TJ to catch the 7:55 ferry at Edmonds â€“ we already saw Jerry in his TJ and our friends in a Cherokee from Sno Co Crawlers in line.Â Along with Michael in his Cherokee â€“ and Rick and Jennifer in theirs a few rigs behind us in line â€“ all poised to cross the water for what appeared would be a stormy day of wheeling in Tahuya. Continue reading “Run to Tahuya March 2015”
Thanks to EVERYONE who went to Tahuya yesterday! While we go wheelin’ in the rigs that become part of our families, it’s the PEOPLE who make the experience truly memorable and awesome! Continue reading “Tahuya Apr 2014”
Tahuya is the Rodney Dangerfield of trail runs because â€“ â€śIt donâ€™t get no respect.â€ťÂ It is rumored that some Tamers even passed up the run because (letâ€™s say it together, class) â€śThere is no challenge thereÂ – Itâ€™s JUST Tahuya.â€ť Continue reading “Its Only Tahuya Mar 2012”
To recap Wheelers for the Wounded – our event in Washington State was one of many being held throughout the country – where off-road clubs and organizations are honoring the service of our wounded veterans. The national organizer and founder, Jason Havlik had intended to make it to all events – but had to discontinue his plan due to health problems experienced on the way, and corporate sponsors reneging on their financial commitments – meaning he ran out of funds to continue travelling to all events.

And for something a little different we ran out to Tahuya for the day. Continue reading “Tahuya Trail Run Jan 2009”
What can you say about Tahuya, it’s Tahuya. We all met in the QFC parking lot in Belfair around 9:00 AM (not adjusted for Tamer Time). It was a pretty nice day all said as the weather was decent with a little sun. Continue reading “It is only Tahuya Mar 2008”
Despite the heavy rains, a small showing of Tamers met up at the QFC parking lot in Belfair right on tamer time. The lovely wife and I in our red TJ, Scott Hanline and his family with their YJ, also Scottâ€™s friends Lloyd, and Jessie with their ranger pickup. GaryTJ and guest Frank with the, GASP, Red TJ met us at the parking area at the trail, (actually they got there first) and we aired down and headed off to the trail. John, and a group from the Quadrapaws took the lead and we slowly followed them through the trails. Continue reading “The Timber Tamers Tackle Tahuya Mar 2007”
