    The Fellowship of PNW Tacomas


    My trucks name is Gandalf Da Grey, I'm @C41n and I am a bit of a nerd. Also, I have no idea what I am doing organizing a meet up :rofl:


    We are noob friendly group of Tacoma owners who like to play in the dirt. Everyone of all skill and experience levels are welcome to join us. Only thing I ask is to have a good attitude. Nothing else really matters all that much.


    Next meetup: Tentative date June 14 Browns camp




    What should you bring?

    If you do not have any of the above, you will not be turned away. Lack of a permit is on you though if it comes down to it.

    Original first post preserved below for prosperity:

    Hey all,

    I am taking out my new Tacoma this Sunday to browns camp area in Tillamook State forest. Running a full stock 2020 TRD off-road. Not new to off roading, but this will be my first time out in a truck. First big mod will be sliders, but I am not sure when that is happening. So I am going to be extra careful and not doing anything too difficult. Throwing that out there so expectations are set.

    That being said, I would love to have some other Tacomas join in on the fun.

    Anyone interested in coming out?

    That's the only day I have this week. My truck was bought to be used, so this is the first trip of many.

    Had a lot of fun today. Ended up going alone with my lady. Here's a few pictures. Posted more on instagram.

    Aired the stock tires down to 18psi. They did great. Don't understand the hate everyone seem to have for em.

    Thinking I may go out again next Sunday. Love to have some company. Also considering heading over to Mt Hood somewhere.

    One last bump before we head out tomorrow. Meeting at Cheveron off the North Plains exit at 11 am before headed out to Browns camp area. All are welcome, noob friendly. We won't be doing anything crazy hard. Come play with us!

    Shout out to @TacoTim85. He and his wife came out to play yesterday and we had a great time. Our Tacoma's are literally twins, right down to the option packages.

    Planning another outing some time soon. Will change the title and post here when I have details.

    We only did a section of one trail. University Firepower I think, but I am not 100%. Did a lot of wandering around. Been years since I was out here on a regular basis and I am still trying to remember my way around. Also the Tacoma is much longer than the TJ I used to take out here. Still learning what it can do with the longer wheelbase. No sliders yet, so not doing anything too risky without that protection.

    Edit - TacoTim85 got a good picture of the trail sign, it was University Firepower
