    on another post there was a question about when and where at tahuya.

    As Dette has to deal with the ferry system she will be there about 10. DaveF and I are meeting at the little creek casino at 8 30 in the big parking lot just west of the gas station. The casino is just south of Shelton.

    There are three parking lots at Tahuya. We will be going to the one called elfendahl. Looking at the map, it looks like we go into Belfair a few blocks to the main intersection and turn left going down a few miles to the elfendahl road taking a right. It is just a few miles up that on the left.

    go to waatva.org and look up trails. Hit on the tahuya, it will bring it up for you. Those not familiar with this site should get involved if possible. The site is for off road enthusiasts and helps the forest service keep our trails open. Without the volunteer help we could lose a lot of freedom using these areas. The 29th we are having what they call the great rock haul. I believe the Forest service has several trailers for doing this. The more the merrier and by volunteering some time they will issue discover passes.

    I'm in! It looks like I should try to be there (elfendahl) around the same time as Dette. I'm going to be taking my gray Chevy pick up with the TW on my hitch carrier. See you there!

    What a shame Matt. We had a great time of it. 4 tw's in a pack was nice. There will be photos coming forsure as Dette and DaveF took a few as did lrppcer. The sun came out in the afternoon. My fingers gave me problems in the morn. Took the handlebar gloves off the rincon and put them on the tw and that helped considerably. Was sure nice to meet some fellow Tdubers. Looking forward to doing some other areas in the state.

    Some members from Western WA met today at Tahuya State Park, near Belfair, WA. The park is popular for off road riding with motorcycles and quads, on numerous trails and gravel roads. I am attaching photographs that include Plumbstratight, Dette, lrppcer and myself (DaveF), who rode our TW200's at the park. We also had two (guest - friends) who didn't ride but joined us for the day. It was a fun time for all. My "Thanks to the group and let's do this again!"

    Tahuya Ride Report (w/ pics!)

    Well, we did it! We managed to get some folks from the forum together for a ride. Tahuya State Forest is wonderful!! It offered something for everyone and their riding capabilities. Paved roads, gravel roads, wide 4x4 trails, double track atv trails, and single track motorcycle trails...all of which are able to be ridden by our little dual-sports.



    We met and set out from the Elfendahl Pass trailhead/parking lot/staging area, and went across the street to try the 4x4 Loop. It ended up being a little much for some that were inexperienced with off-road riding.



    We decided to split up for a while. Dave and Dette wanted to explore the dirt roads, while Plumb and I decided to continue on the 4x4 loop. Dirt, rocks, puddles, forest, clear cuts, and a Porche. Wait...what?! Well, at least I think it was a Porche SUV. It and another high end Jeep were trying their luck today too.

    After meeting back up for lunch, we all went out together to find our way around on the gravel roads. The journey was made more interesting as we learned how out-of-date our maps were.

    Loaded up for home

    It was a good day. We got a chance to meet, and since none of us had been to Tahuya, it was a good to learn about a good place to ride on the wet-side. A funny thing happened when we were getting ready to go home. A random guy drove in with a TW in the bed of his Ford Ranger. He did a lap and left like he was looking for a friend or something. We tried to wave him down. An interesting coincidence I think. I know that there were more pics taken, and others will provide their own 2 cents...and I can't wait.
