Off Road Podcast Episode 156 - Murder Sporks Incorporated


Welcome to the Off Road Podcast. I'm your host, Ben. Today we will be exploring the off road world-- whether you like crawling up rock ledges or enjoy exploring the backroads with your family. Stay with us to find out events in your area, off road news, and topics to interest every guy & girl who craves the outdoors as seen through the windshield. I am here with my co-host Aaron. How’s everyone doing tonight?

Anyone done anything exciting?

  • Aaron - Went to Tahuya for some wheeling.  Had a great time.  Tried some new stuff.  Got high centered on a large rock pile.  Cleaned the spare room and found a knife that Ben gave me.

  • Ben - Got sick did nothing. Finally feeling better today and got motivated in the garage along with ordered a mixer for the podcast.



Michael H - Hey Ben, was just listening to episode 150 I vote suburban and congrats on deciding to get out of the Jeep. Suburbans can wheel just fine and go anywhere a Jeep can. I talked to Michael for a little bit he’s written in before and now has put 37s on his suburban and pulled 5 rigs out at the dunes the last time he was there.

listener and Navy Chief currently deployed on a guided missile Submarine somewhere on the other side of the planet, but home ported out of the Pacific Northwest writes: I’ll be returning home in late autumn to the Puget Sound area, a bunch of us want to go camping after we get back but due to our op-tempo don’t really know the secrets of the area very well.  What are some great places off of the beaten path to go that involves some mild off-roading (Jeeps and trucks, no Subarus) and hiking?  Specifically we’re looking for stuff within a 150 mile radius of our base, so the Olympics, Cascades, and Mt Rainier areas.

Naches Trail, Surprise Lake, Several ORV parks, Lots of FS roads in the olympics and Cascades.  Most people won’t give up their secret spots.  I(Aaron) would love to lead a run for a bunch of Veterans out into the woods.  Book called Rays Guide: Free camping in Washington State has gotten me into many fun out of the way areas.
