    will we have sand small rock and mud but you have to watch out for the mud some you do not want to go though it is run off from some of the farms and ranches. PU! then you wash your jeep with lemon juice. But only 2 to3 hr drive to some nice trees.

    I'm in Salem. 5 minutes to the country, 45 minutes to the mountains, hour to the beach, 90 minutes to the high desert. Hoping to set up a Browns Camp run this fall once the fire danger drops off. I'm also part of a couple 4x4 groups in Salem, links in my siggy.

    It's about an hour west of Portland. People call it Browns Camp but that's pretty much just the camping and staging area, it's really the whole Tillamook State Forest. There's trails in all degrees of difficulty. You don't need anything depending on what trails you take on, but most people agree it's a smart idea to have recovery gear, a shovel, axe, and fire extinguisher. Here's a trail map I found on the Forestry Department site. http://www.oregon.gov/odf/tillamooks...s/tsfohv09.pdf

    I'm from western Idaho, about 35 minutes from Ontario, Oregon. But I go to La Grande, OR and Moses Lake, WA pretty frequently.

    I took my XJ to Browns with a 3" lift and no armor other than my factory skid plates, a front tube bumper, and 31" all terrain tires and did just fine on the easy to moderate difficulty stuff. All of the real gnarly stuff has bypass roads for less equipped rigs. I will say that taking it up there will really light a fire under your a to build your rig lol... since I went I went up 2 more inches (5" total) and got some 33x12.50s, upgraded to an IRO trackbar, extended brake lines, and control arm drop brackets.

    How did I miss the inception of THIS THREAD?!?!?!
    Well the user name says it all, and for those who listen to the podcast, you prob know me pretty well by now.
    I'm just outside of Portland, Or. but grew up all around the greater NW area,
    From the Puget Sound area clear to the southern side of Oregon.
    It's gonna be pretty cool, to see how many Northwesterners we have around here!
    5" lift, 33's. Armored, Lighted, Chipped, & Locked up Front. Soon to come: winch, gears, axle shafts, and more...
