I am getting tree permits tomorrow and want to know who's interested. We are looking at the last weekend in November(Nov 29th) or the second weekend in December(Dec 13th)

I would prefer Nov 29th. Please let me know who's gonna go and if Nov 29th will work for you.(it is Thanksgiving weekend BTW)

Wagon is down for the count. Can the RX make it? Not looking to get a tree I don't think, but would like to tag along for a fun outing.

It will make it with all seasons but definitely not the 18's.

It won't go anywhere with the 18's, they are for sale now. I have some 14's i'm running with some toyo all seasons on them. Hopefully by the end of this week i'll be running some 16's with re92's on them.

Austin, look at the weather reports lately. Last year we were at 5000 feet elevation (I think--qman, bail me out on this). I suspect we'll have snow. Take the lifted wagon with the gnarly tires; I'll be bringing my Brat and keeping my fingers crossed.

my car *might* pass emissions now, I changed the BLACK air filter and plugged the vacuum leak. It runs better and its easier to keep the revs where u want. And it also doesn't smell like a gas can when u sniff the exhaust! It smells like catalitic sp? My friend wants to go with me to the tree place to get a tree, how much are the passes? I don't want to pay a ton if he has to bail on me. But I would like a tree as well.:santa: Oh and I would bring the snow tires and hook up the linkage...

They are $10.00 ea. You can get them at the ranger station. I believe you have one at Lynnwood or Everett. Snohomish county Ranger district.

Oh ok 10$ isn't bad at all. So they might not be available on the 29th? Is it 1 tree per pass?

Yes, 1 tree per pass. They are available on a first come basis. There is not a quantity limit either. So, if you want one you should do so as they will run out. It's just a matter of when.

Exactly where and when are people meeting on Saturday? I don't think I can make the whole thing--might have to work. I might be able to say hello and pick up a goodie Qman's got for me if I know where and when to find everyone.

I was up the North Fork of the Snoqualmie last weekend and it did not take long to find snow. I think there's more on the way, too.

P.S. SuBaRallyVovo, if you can find a ride home I can probably give you a ride to the Xmas tree run.

We can meet at my house and go up. I'll be leaving at 8:30 a.m. sharp!
Or, between 9:30 and 10:00 at the Enumclaw Mikky D's. There's only one.

i really wanted to bring a friend along, but I just don't know if my volvo will make it, and how many extra seats and how willing people would be to let us take em up... If Brian goes he says he will have open seats. So thats what I am hoping for. But right now it looks like i'll be taking my volvo with a set of snow tires. I agree its a stupid idea to take my subaru in the snow w/ out insurance. I don't wanna pull a Miles fox lol.:D

Alright. . . but you'll find I have very little patience with stuck volvos.

Hey - I'll gladly rip the bumper off the Volvo attempting to un-stick it. Hehehe.

Cool enough. Matt goes last, the General will be second to last. :brow:


But I fear it'll be another of your clutches that goes before your little Soobie tears the bumper off of that heavy old sucker.

Only got one more AAA. It's mine.

Hrrmmm - true. I'll get some slack on the tow line, and take a running start! I bet the bumper gives before I move that tank.

I think what Zap is trying to say is that we want to be absolved of all responsiblilty for what happens to a RWD tank with no ground clearance if it tries to follow us. But of course your welcome to try. And I will probably pull you out (if your not too annoying). Any damage I cause in the process tho.... well that's not my problem. :brow:

Oh yeah - thanks again for saving my bacon with your AAA. I'm going to get AAA. Hopefully I can return the favor sometime.

I don't plan to off road my volvo... Isn't there a parking lot I could park it in and ride with someone else?

Matt, do not plan on empty seats. This is a family outing and most if not all seats will be filled. I know mine will be. I have to take two cars to get everyone up there.

Looks like i'm gonna be going in a FWD XT with snow tires and 3 people. Thanks for the heads up Ken... I kinda figured but I wasn't sure if it was more off road or a family type deal.

I hope that FWD stands for FourWheelDrive.

That is one of the requirements. I do not want to spend my day digging a 2wd car out of a parking lot. Or waiting for one.

WOOHOO! I'm positive I can rip the bumper off an XT! :cool:

J/K - don't want to offend any XT people out there. :banghead:

Seriously tho - I'm with Qman - 4WD or AWD is the WHOLE POINT of this outing. If you don't have access to a car with one of these sytems (doesn't have to be a Subaru), and you can't find a ride with someone who does, then perhaps you should stay at home - or I guess you can leave the Volvo in the parking lot, and run - got some snow shoes? Hehe.

I say we outright ban non-4WD and non-AWD vehicles from the off-road portion of this outing right now. What does everyone think about that? Anyone got a reason we shouldn't?
