Hi Vega, I haven't been to browns camp yet, but I've been going to a spot between Scappoose and Vernonia. It takes about 45 mins, here is a link to my post about it.

Here's a link to the nearest intersection on Yahoo!Maps:

http://maps.yahoo.co...try=us&resize=s

The best way to go is up I-5 to 405 North to Hwy 30 North. Take Hwy 30 all the way to Scappoose, then turn left on Scappoose Vernonia Hwy. There are lots of other turn-offs and trails besides this one.

Cool you're getting your Brat done soon. I bet you can't wait to get it dirty--the maiden voyage is always the best.

Ian

I wonder if that's the place my boss was telling me about? He told me about some good trails around Scappoose.

Yeah I know what you mean, ever since it started raining the Subaru fever has gotten worse. All I can think about is finding more mud holes.:grin:

Good luck with the rest of the work.....

I just got the brat to pass DEQ today, but the handling problem I think is coming from my bias ply tires, It supriesd me when I swaped for the tires off my wagon and the pull went away. It does need an alignment anyways. I will let you know when she is ready to go get some mud. :banana:
