Default Thank You PNW4wda! (many pics)

This was my first ever "trail-jam" for off-roading. From our entrance to the event to our departure, as obvious new-comers, we were welcomed with open arms, given helpful suggestions, great tips, offered food-hospitality and even winning a raffle too!

We had so much fun getting to meet all of you, go on a few excellent (and a few frightening) trails runs, get towed, tow others, dent & scratch our new Jeep!

We had so much fun that we became members of the PNW too!

Here are a few pictures from our trip at the 2011 Trail Jam.

Wednesday morning coming over hwy 12:

Wednesday afternoon, we made it!

Thursday, our first run was CloverSprings with Chris Wood of AEV (great class) and the great gals of the fun club Spanaway Moonshiners

we can fit through there!?!?!

three JK's


Friday we did the Naches Trail with the most awesome guys & gals from the Desert Rats. They were some fantastic people. They saved our bacon more than once!

our wing-man Leonard had a busted leafspring and a quick trailside repair with clever use of stumps, we were off again!
(all 4 generations of wranglers)

Lunch time!

Rabbit holes, bullrun & some other bridge crossings and another dose of great forest & trail stewardship by the Desert Rats. They were very inspiring in their stewardship and seriousness to the environment & Tread Lightly. Good guys.

Saturday Morning...
We went with the White Knuckles crew to do some ridges, a lake & funny rocks!

"Whoa...." don't look down. Watch the spotter!

Up Up Up!

Thank you again.
See you next year!

It was great meeting and wheeling with you on the Naches Trail run.
I tried to snap of pic of your Jeep on the bridge, but was a little too late!

Watch out, Trail Jam can get addicting!! We were not able to make it this year and missed out. We have made some lifelong friends during our adventures at Trail Jam and highly recommend it to everyone!!
