So back in the day, when I was running an Escort GT with a few buds of mine, we played a game of follow the leader and ended up near Orting, close to lake kapowsin. Anyways, there is a real nice hill climb out there on a road called Camp 1 Rd. I think it's probably two miles up and then you turn around and come down or you can take the scenic route down, which I've not done yet. I've got Saturday's, Monday's and Tuesday's off and I'm wondering if anyone wants to head out there and investigate the scenic route down the mountain or just have a good drive and hit up the sonic drive thru on the way back home. Also, if you've got a fun spot to run at, post it up with a google earth file so we know where it's at. I'll be posting mine soon.

I'd be down for some exploration. I need to start searching for some good roads, the only one I really know of is the hill by flaming geyser. I'll see if I can figure out the google maps thing to post on here.

EDIT - I think I figured it out: http://g.co/maps/aqd5g

They simplified the road on this map and it is covered with trees, it is actually more twisty than it appears lol.

There's not many places for them to hide on that little stretch - but black diamond as a whole is known for giving speeding tickets for 36 in a 35. I've never experienced it first hand though.

Hmm... I suppose a wise investment would be a radar detector ANYWAYS. Tuesday Fijimx5 and I are going to camp 1 to go exploring and get some pics if It's not raining.

Possibly Saturday night. I know Tuesday is exploration day to see where we can and cannot go. I'll be tracking the route on my droid G2 with mytracks so I can document the routes. I fan tell you for sure that the elevation change from start to the top is around 1000' and it's a hill climb :D

After the routes have been traveled I'll upload and share them with the PACNW guys that didn't get to go so when we wanna have a sick drive in the summer we can head up there. I'm excited!

Its off West Valley HWY and its AMAZING, perched on the side of a Steep hill face, one way NO place for LEO's to hide.

I'd be down for a fun run.

Tumbler, my buddy and I love that climb and descent. We took our escort gts on it, his supras and his 200sx has yet to hit it. Maybe he'll come with us Monday to camp 1... :D

Me and a porsche friend are working to organize a few runs here. We were thinking of doing a small one for a few hours within the next couple weekends. I was going to extand an invite for a few of you guys.
Could you PM me when you get things nailed down? I have a few friends who would like to go as well ( s2k, GTI, and WRX) would that be alright?
