Washington wheeling, clubs, forums?

Are there any decent clubs/forums specific to WA that are not Jeep only? I live in AK, but am considering moving down in a few years, and want to get to know the area and trails and possibly clubs...

Spokane Area...
www.inwadventures.com

Eastern Washington Adventures (Yakima Area)
www.easternwashingtonadventures.com/forum.php

I'd say EWA is better because they have a focus group for local land issues. Some stuff that's not touched on here.

NW Wheelers is good too, they deal with land issues also, but they are Seattle area based, so if you are in Spokane, you probably won't be able to make very many runs.

The first question might be "where do you plan to move to"? Different areas, different clubs.

Three main areas, Rochester area, Winatchee (Sp), and Spokane. Kinda a wide range, I know. I want to be nearest the largest amount of trails, and will be buying about 10 acres. Have a wife and kid, so jobs for her and schools are important.

If you end up in Spokane, you can hang with our "unofficial" club, Mountain Explorers 4x4.

I love the Wenatchee area, moved back here about 8 years ago or so. Land in the area is expensive though so take that into consideration for the area you move. Likely cheaper near Spokane or the outskirts. We have some good schools and there's a few good places for jobs but pay isn't great. From my house, I can be at the top of the nearest ridge in 1 hours time having lunch. Nice to get out of town for a bit. I travel to Rimrock for most wheeling though, which is about 2.5 hours away. Lots of trails right out of town yes, but always nice to get away to other areas as well. Wenatchee is kind of the "small town" type feel and a big family area. Lots of outdoor stuff with the rivers and hills and lots of kid stuff. Weather is great-though coming from Alaska, I think anywhere but the west side will seem great for you. Spokane is pretty similar weather, but much larger area.

Best of Luck,

Mike

Hey I am also in Spokane, I only have a 2" on my JGC now but next month will be doing a 4". I have been here 3 years and have been looking to find some good trails and river crossings. Anyone know of any good places for "mild" wheeling?

I've looked around at some of these sites. Looks like a lot of good places. Seems mostly no one really wheels full size, or what they wheel are built up well and trailered to the trails.

Perhaps I'll need to get something that doesn't have a wide ass wheel base like some kind of yota or jeep. I could probly get one to wheel for the price it would cost to SAS my truck.
