Most of you know that there is a group of us up here in NW Washington that all wheel together, We call ourselves Nw Washington Offroad, but as of lately it seems that the group has more or less disbanded, Josh Rick and I have tried giving out free lifts to get people to join but the last round of that just seemed to be a free lift for a guy we never saw again. Ive been wheeling Subaru's for the better part of the last 12 years, the last 8 years far more hard core than I had before.We've had groups of guys come and go , but Pat and I have pretty much been there from the beging, we called ourselves Untamed offroad, then Woody, Brian, David, and Jake where always around so we ended up being North End Hardcore, That lasted for about 2 years then it went to Northern Alliance Offroad, that stuck for quite a while, then It seems everyone went their own way for a while and Scott in Bellingham said we should make a group. Have wheeling runs around the 20th of every month and get a "club" set up, So we pretty much did that, R_Kirky Scott me Woody 3eyedwagon, so on and so on. We wheeled hard for the first 3 years but it seems the end  2012 and so far 2013, has been a flop, It sorta bums me out to see this go down hill so I was wondering what everyone else in the group is thinking................. Is this the end or are guys Building new cars, Or is everyone going different directions??? I understand things come and go but I Just hate to see it go, Im sure if its the end Ill come up with differnt name for a wheeling club and move on with some others to keep wheeling.........  Let me know what you think or how you feel about the the group or if you even want to have a group.................

Try not to let it get you down. Keep up the good work and things will look up. (coming from the guy that still has a disassembled hatch.) Give me a call when you get a chance.

I tried to PM you and got an error message. Do you have the same number you used to have? If so, you have a voicemail.

I've never been wheeling with you guys before, but about 2 years ago I bought the black and red 2" lifted wagon on 30's from a guy in puyallup that one of you guys built. I tried bringing it to ellensburg and it died going up the pass. Funds were tight and it got sent to the scrappers. ever since, I've been slowly building my impreza. ive watched all your youtube videos several times and I would hate for this group to disband when i'm on the verge of having a worthy trail rig. Im almost done installing my 6" SJR lift and next up is a gl dual range. so hang on for a little longer guys!! I wanna run with the big dogs haha

you guys should come run down here once in awhile. the 5 hour round trip on a wheeling day is what scares me off. stuff comes in waves. right now the tide may be out but itll return....

Although I have not been involved much the last year i have made good friends in the offroad subaru community and guys in NWWO. I am down to have a fresh start. My issue is my car is my daily at the moment, I'm working on getting a dedicated wheeler wagon. I would be willing to dedicate time I also can do shirts, stickers, website (unless thats a bit to much................)

I'm still around.  The last run was too close to Christmas and right now my car is in pieces due to a strut nut jamming itself in the flywheel. As soon as I get her back together I'll be ready for another run. We already missed February so set one up for March... 3/23?

One of the the things A few of us have talked about was, having some one in charge of each County to keep everyone informed on the happenings, King Co Josh has spoken for and I can run Skagit Co, Whatcom, Pierce, and turston Co.s still need some one to step up if thats an Idea that everyone wants to go with.  Ried where you still kicking around the Snohomish Co part?

Good idea.  Hopefully I'll only be in Snohomish County until June and then moving to Pierce County to be closer to work.
