Newbie Run in Western Washington
« on: Jun 22, 2004, 01:58:58 PM »
I am posting this up for those of you new to this sport in my area. If you are a newbie this is a good opportunity to get to know some local people, learn some of the ins & outs of wheeling & trail etiquette.

Heck no, you don't have to join the forum to go (hey that rhymed).
I don't know if I will yet, but I offered to help.

Yeah I would definitely like to attend that run.  When I went with you I was introduced to a few new trails, but I'm sure there is a lot more to find up there.

I will be going to funny rocks on the 4th so Ill be testing everything out then.  I do still need a bunch of seat time so I know every quirk of the truck.  I was pretty good in the big truck but I had driven it so much I knew it really well.  This truck is so differant but Im getting used to it.

Funny Rocks & Moon Rocks is a rocky area where everyone plays with their trucks. The trail to them is quite easy. The Kaner flat trail is a much more fun way to get to Funny Rocks. The trail to the top of Quartz Mountain is a fun trail too.

So Dan, since a bunch of people are going to funny rocks on the 4th, you think mine and Gavin's trucks would be capable?

You guys can get your trucks up to the rocks. What you want to try from there is up to you!
Unless things change in the next few days, I will not be able to go this weekend.

Any recommendations on a good shop in the south Seattle area (Tukwila, De Moines) that you could recommend to do some brake upgrades/repairs on a 1981 pickup?

I'm about a thousand and a half miles from you so I can't recommend a shop, but there's tons of info on this forum. You will probably end up being your best mechanic. If not on this job, the next one, or 5 jobs from now :thumbs:
