Hey all, I am somewhat new to the olympia area, and I really haven't done any wheelin' at all and would like to start. I know that there has to be some good places that are not very far from Olympia, I just have no idea where they are. So I am looking for someone down here who would like to go wheelin' with me some weekend and show me some cool spots in this area. Keep in mind I am a noob when it comes to wheelin' and my car isn't lifted either. It will be, just not right now :grin: I am just trying to get my feet wet in the whole wheelin' thing. Anyone want to help a noob out :) Let me know,

Donald

I can't wait for the snow. For the last few years I have driven a mr2 as my dd so when it snowed it didn't go anywhere, but not now!

I live very close to tumwater, almost Lacey, off of the yelm highway. We should go wheelin' sometime, that way if I get stuck I have someone to pull me out :)

most definately. My boyfriend has an 82 4wd toyota that has a winch so as long as he's around no one's getting stuck. also i have a friend with an xt6 that's always looking for someone to go wheelin with, i'll have to give him a call and we can set something up.
I can't wait for the snow either, i love that my little subi can drive more places in the snow than all these dudes with full size trucks that think they're something else.
:]

LOL that's who i was talking about, my friend with the xt6. Chris calls a lot asking if we want to go up to capitol, as soon as it snows you should come with us... i know there's already snow up on the peak but not so much on the roads...
Not long now!

my parents both thought my subaru was a peice of crap and called it a turd (it was brown) but as soon as that snow last year hit, who do you think was driving them around??
They respect my suby a lot more now. lol. :grin:
