Reiter pit run!! cancelled... details for reasons why in final post...
Posted 12 February 2004 - 12:17 AM
well i'm tenatively coming home to washington for a few days. before i deploy. tentatively somewhere in the first couple weeks of May. so i'm gonna organize a small run up to reiter pit area. Lake Isabele Trail is the main focus and goal.
Reiter Pit is located just east of goldbar on hwy 2. north east of seattle, east of everett, and southeast of mt vernon.
All types of vehicles are invited. But be aware lake isabele is not an easy trail. it's a very difficult trail. it starts just after crossing the power lines. take a whoop-d-doo road to the May Creek crossing. which is the actual start of the trail. there are 2 creek crossings an easy and a hard route. after this it slowly winds up the side of the hill. for awhile it's fairly mellow. then there's your first real obstacle. a rockface directly after another creek crossing. then there's a tight little over and around some rocks. then to a large hill with several rock faces. after the hill more rocks start to appear all through out the trail. this is when the trail increases in difficult a lot more. after a little ways past the top of the hill there's a riqoute old log bridge. it must be navigated carefully so not to fall in the cracks or go off. after this bridge the rocks get even larger. this is the farthest i've been. there's supposed to be a waterfall and a obstacle called avalanche. which from what i remeber walking was a lot of large boulders strewn across the trail. the trail is aproximately 3.9 miles long. what you go up you will be coming down type of a trail. it deadends and you must turn around. and experience the obstacles in reverse.
for a map of this trail either go look at my site under trails/GPS
another map is right here.
Lake isabel trail map
some of the obstacle difficulties are definately off. but close enough. so come and join me and the subaru's
after that trail run. depending on how many turn around and how many press on. and actual time span it takes to run the trail. maybe just go play on the other trails in the reiter trails area. there are plenty of mild and medium difficult trails that can be run. so if can't take the stress and abuse of driving lake isabele. you can come meet us and play around reiter while we go up in the hills. i won't offer seats this time cause my car will be loaded. so if you want to ride you must arrange transport.
hope to see you all there. this is also be duplicated on the show your 4x4 forum.

I'm also gonna be trying to invite a few non subaru owners with there rigs.
For the lake isabel trail itself. i'm requiring. (granted you can bring any vehicle to play with us in retier after the lake isabel trail run)
Subaru Requirments For Lake Isabel Trail Only:
welded rear diff
26" tires minimum!! must be mud terrain tires!!
good humor about possible body damage! necessity!
As for on the trail. We are going to try to complete this trail. so anyone that does not want to precede with there vehicles at any time. due to possible breakage, fear, or don't think your vehicle can make it. you can turn around or pull over and park. (as long as you can find away to park and not block the trail!) then walk or take an open seat if available. if you have an extremely hard time getting to the log bridge. i strongly suggest you park and walk or ride. cause the difficulty multiplys 10 fold after the riqoute log bridge!!! with only 2 major obstacles left after the bridge!
these requiements are only for the lake isabel portion of the day. not the rest of reiter pit. this is one of if not the hardest trail in reiter pit area.

but for the rest after this trail will only be mild trails and playing in the mud.

Eric morton and maybe a few other non subaru's.

if enough people are going to show up i'll still be driving home to go wheeling. if there isn't going to be enough then i'm flying and just going to have a bbq.
for this trip you don't need to have a majorly modified car. for isabel you do. but before the rest of us start that run. we can pair you of and show you a few other trails and open areas to play and test your car's ability's.

another update... it might be pushed back to early june. right before i leave. they pushed the deploy date back 3 days. so i might be able to get more time in june. let me know what you all think...
Whatever Jared. We're waiting. Get here when you get here, we understand.
You still have my# right?

yes eric i still have your #. i'm stuck on a boat right now off the coast of california. thank god we have internet for now. someone was saying we might lose it when we actually deploy. so i don't have my cell right now. but i'll give you a call when i hit land and go back to yuma for a week. should be in a few days.
one of the major reasons why i was thinking of changing to june... was more time to fix my car up. still waiting on snap-on to deliver my tool to fix my diffs. the biggest reason is i ran into a friend from highschool here on the boat. he joined the corp a few months before i did. and is stationed with intel for the grunts in camp pendleton. and we wanted to try to take leave around the same time so we could go partying and drinking... before we go deploy. definately interesting when you bump into people in the chow hall on a boat, that you never thought you'd see again...
