Want to meet us and have a wonderful day on the trail?  Come out to the Off Road Podcast Tahuya Listener Run on October 6th.  Ben, Aaron and Jeremy will be meeting at the Belfair Safeway at 1045 and leaving for the park at 11.  We will be stopping at mud lake for lunch and shenanigans followed by some trail runs. All skill levels are welcome. Come out, have a great time, and make some new friends. You must have tow points front and rear, an appropriately sized spare tire, jack capable of lifting your vehicle, tools to change your tire, functional parking brake, seatbelts for all occupants, and a discovery pass.  It is also highly recommended that you have a tow strap, 31” tires, First Aid kit, fire extinguisher, spill kit, and low range in your transfer case. Unless you are trailering your rig, it must be road legal including valid registration and insurance. If you have a radio (walkietalkie/CB/Ham) please bring them along so we can keep in touch on the trail. Please RSVP on our Facebook.
