Yacolt Burn Proposed Trails & Facilities


7m4x4dude: 5 miles as the crow flies. I think u being slightly higher helped your signal. Mar 15, 2015 6:49:26 GMT -8
7m4x4dude: I think part of me hearing u well is due to my radio being in my hands vrs urs in the dash... Mar 15, 2015 6:50:17 GMT -8
pgragg: If you want to know, I'm at hearthwood and mill plain. The 108" whip does help with Tx, but should also boost my Rx... I think we should check your swr... I've heard people 30+ miles sound clearer.. Mar 18, 2015 23:10:57 GMT -8
thedude: That 108". Is that what you had at Elbe? Because you came in loud and clear that day. Did you do anything else to bump up the power of your radio? Mar 19, 2015 12:50:32 GMT -8
7m4x4dude: I got my hands on three radios right now. I do need to get an antenna set up and tuned. I also have a 150amp amplifier i can use. Obviously for reaching out for help. Mar 19, 2015 21:59:27 GMT -8
thedude: Obviously^^^^^^ (rofl) Mar 22, 2015 14:38:31 GMT -8
pgragg: I might not publicize your amplifier :P My radio is barefoot... aka factory... I didn't even get it 'peaked' or anything... the antenna I ran at elbe was the 5 foot firestik. It's tuned. Apr 7, 2015 9:58:12 GMT -8
pgragg: A couple guys were asking about my whip, so here's the link: Apr 12, 2015 23:13:24 GMT -8

pgragg: Just a day away! May 1, 2015 7:44:52 GMT -8
thedude: Its almost here! May 1, 2015 22:27:24 GMT -8
thedude: I have a couple of pictures. I have not had a chance to look at them yet. Ill see of i van get some up tomorrow. May 2, 2015 23:22:50 GMT -8
thedude: We went up into the burn yesterday after work and went wheeling!!! And thats why I got involved in all of this!!! May 16, 2015 8:37:59 GMT -8
pgragg: So... Duratracs or KM2s? Feel free to message me direct :D May 24, 2015 2:00:53 GMT -8
thedude: I dont know anything about the Duratracs. BFG gives back to the Offroad community and has given to this club so Ill recommend the KM2s. May 25, 2015 19:41:25 GMT -8
thedude: Not saying that Goodyear dosent give back to the offroad community. But BFG played a part in the Yacolt Burn Trails becoming a reality. May 25, 2015 19:42:44 GMT -8
pgragg: I'll keep an eye out. My tires were getting pretty bad, so I got the Duratracs because the KM2s (in my size) are on backorder until july 1st. So they said that they'll order them, and if I want to switch I can as soon as they get here... May 26, 2015 0:29:58 GMT -8
thedude: Nothing wrong with that. Ive gone to get tires before to have it be back ordered for a month or two and ended up going home with something else. May 26, 2015 11:15:19 GMT -8
pgragg: I'm just worried about the noise that is sure to come with those huge lugs... May 26, 2015 14:06:09 GMT -8
thedude: And if thats a concern then the Duratracs will probably work out for you just fine. The tread is more of an A/T type. On a daily driver you have to make compromises and street-ability is usually the way to go. May 26, 2015 15:54:54 GMT -8
