I'll be good to go thats like 8 miles away from my house. I'll be down to go, it'll have to be a Saturday or Sunday. And get ready last time I was up there was last summer and the new "Jeep trail" had just been put in. It was all clear cut and dirt so I think it'll be real pain.

Tell me more about Walker Valley. Is it really open to vehicles? What's it like? What kind of offroad conditions does it have. I hope to be buying a Soob in the next couple weeks and could possibly have it lifted and new tires on it by first week in Jan.

I would love to tag along with a pack of subarus on a run through walker valley! I dont currently have a subaru I would even consider running throgh there though so I would be going in my CJ5.
just a heads up though, there have been some changes made to walker this last year, some trails closed and some new ones opened, I havent been there since the changes so I dont know what all they are for sure. Also, walker valley orv park is closed from Nov 1 through march 31 each winter to preserv the trails and streams from mud run off.
I have been trying to find a current trail map of walker but have not been able to yet, I f I come up with anything I will post it here somewhere.

Ohh..

So what I'm hearing is that not only has the North Fork been recently closed down, but Walker Valley is closed during the winter. Looks like we need to find some other place to go that are close to Whatcom County.

My front yard is getting a little too muddy :rolleyes: for much more offroad driving and I would sure like to send those pesky Soobs to some place a little nicer :burnout: :burnout:

Rollie.

(I'm still lookin to buy a nice EA82. I'm hoping to have the cash in the next week or so.) :banana:

Umm, DNR says the trails are closed to all motorized vehicles until March 31st.


Edit:
My bad I guess, there's another announcement that says it's open again for "limited winter use" on December 28th.

I'm hoping to have my Soob ready by then.

'88 GL Wagon
New engine should be here this week.
New 27" SSR's hopefully here next week.
6" SJR lift already installed.
Need to fabricate some bumpers or at least some tow hooks.

No plan for a locker yet.
Body is in good shape, so I'm not looking forward to any carnage. I'm not too sure how difficult of trails I want to subject my car to as I'm still wanting to depend on it for a daily driver.

Maybe if I can get some shop time between work and the holidays, it will be up to the trip by then.

I'm still in I was thinking of putting a post up for this yesterday, I even talked to andy (uncoolperson) about putting a post up for it. But Yes I'm still in, Jan. 14th looks like a prefect day to do it. I can probably get Brian and his hatch brat to come too.
