Naches PNWDS Campout Ride - Great Times

Time for our second annual PNWDS Naches Campout and Ride.

I left for camp on Thur around 1pm, YamWOW!, Relaytech, Craig2211 and Mamacone had left earlier that morning. I arrived at camp to find a makeshift maint shop in full swing.




Relaytech installing new chain/sprockets.




YamWOW! wiring up power to his GPS




Craig2211 had recently picked up a used 300 smoker and it came with this tank installed (anyone know what brand this tank is?). Craig thought it needed makeshift nipples : Well at least he won't get board when we stop for a minute on the trail






Mamacone's smoker....Alan had only two rules for the trip, always stop next to a tree so he'd have a kick stand and always stop on a hill so he didn't have to kick :




Craig and Alan had rode a small loop earlier in the day before I arrived, Alan decided to play tag with a branch and lost. :




Friday morning we left camp and did a great single track loop, here's a couple shots from the GoPro Footage






While out on the loop Perry's thermo-switch failed and he started boiling over, he wired the fan in the ON position so it ran the whole time which fixed the problem out on the trail. Once back at camp he installed his spare switch.






Craig back at camp....takin it easy.




Panoramic of camp




Oring arrived at camp and after everyone was rested up we headed out for a short ride to Ravens Roost. Here Kevin is making the last climb to the top.














My bike sitting at the top




We returned to camp and had a great dinner thanks to Perry's cooking. Inconceivable arrived in the afternoon.

Saturday morning we were all ready to hit the trail. Here Joe is staying warm by the fire while everyone gets ready.




Alan fueling up the smoker. Craig's shoulder was sore from yesterdays ride so he decided to hang by camp today.




Out on the trail we came to our first big hill, lots of rocks and ruts.






Perry re-gaining his balance




Inconceivable on his first try.... :scared:




Owen on his way up




Joe making the top




Kevin starting the climb...a large group of Jeeps showed up, we would be playing tag with them for a while.






After some more awesome trail we arrived at Aardvark Hill.




Jeep cresting the top of the hill






Joe giving a thumbs up to the camera as we climbs to the top (snapped from video footage so the quality sucks)




After Aardvark Hill the trail turned SUPER ROCKY! I love riding rock but this is a great place to do some damage to rims etc. Onward we go!

Kevin catching up to the pack




What lies ahead




Owen...ok I'm ready for this.




LOTS of rocks, we came to a steep hill that was solid rocks and it just kept on going.




Relaytech making the climb




Owen checking over the bike




Inspector on his way up




Joe on the trail




And a few more snaps taken from my helmet cam...the resolution sucks but it gives a good idea of how rough the trail really was.








We made it to the top of that hill and caught back up with the Jeep group again. After resting a bit we decided to head back down the hill and work our way back to camp for lunch.

This picture from the way down gives a better idea of how steep this rocky his really was.








As usual I wish I would have taken more pictures but I did take lots of video footage.

Had a great time, can't wait for next years trip!



Here's a video of the ride

Rocks

Nice movie!

I thought the colockum area jeep roads were rocky... not like that! Are the jeep-excluded trails also that loose with rocks? I would be one tired guy riding that stuff all day.

Great riding.
I really like that rocky hill section - looks like so much fun!

How many miles did you guys ride on that trip? Some nice long singletrack?

There are a lot of trails in the Naches Area. Most of the loops we did was about 20 miles, then back to camp for a snack etc. There's some great single track up there!
