Have never seen a convoy of Isuzu's here or anywhere else but count me in if you find one. I just picked up another Trooper after 5 years since I sold my last one. Need to figure out an electrical issue with blinkers but other than that I expect her to be back on the road soon. In the Maple Valley area and would be cool to get a group together and explore the mountains by Crystal

I guess I will email local groups to see what their members drive.

Hello Pacific NW Isuzu Off-Roaders! We used to have a club of Isuzu's here that I started with my friend Stephan, about 10 years ago. Members that I know of, that are lurking for the rebirth of such a group, are:
Rick Woodinville, WA
Stephan Seattle, WA
Tammy Seattle, WA
Craig Moscow, ID
James Post Falls, ID
and
myself.
How about we list our names, where we live, and our cell phone number. I can create a group text, and start texting 4x4 trails that were planning on going on to each other, as we hear about them.

Thanks,

I like Naches and Evans Creek wheeling a lot, but skipped my annual trip last year due to other commitments.

You all seem to be a little further north than me. Bradzipple here on the forum is located in VanBeaver. He knows a lot about these rigs, but I have only ever seen him out on the trail once I think...

Yep, we used to have a fairly large and active club out here. There are a few people still lurking around, myself included. When we were all getting together I was living in Yakima, WA mostly. I remember Air Amigo and Tammy (black Rodeo, right?), wheeled with them a few times. I went by Storm Trooper on the old forum. I moved to Bellingham in 2001 and that year was one of the last runs I remember everyone doing. We went down to Tillamook to spend the day. Oh and I think we went to Harrison Lake up in BC that year too.

I think Jim is still around and is in Burlington. I wheeled with him a few years ago with another club.

Anyway I'm still kicking around with my same old trooper. Getting ready to put it back on the road after letting it sit a while.

It's getting to be nice here in Central Washington and the dust isn't quite so bad. If any of you are around the area and want to meet up let me know.

I am in the Seattle area but make it over to the east side of the state somewhat regularly too. Would be fun to have a proper meet up and drive at some point with other members!

I've been looking for a club for awhile that roams the PNW. I have a 1991 Trooper that I do a lot of over landing in Bend OR, and I tend to off-road a lot in the Tillamook area. If there's a group that is getting together and going on trips, count me in!
