    Hey guys and gals,

    I am heading up next weekend to grab a tree with some friends and wanted to throw out an invite to everyone on here. We plan on heading up NF-18 just before Darrington. We have been up there a few times and have a good spot to hang out, make a fire and play in the snow. I will fill this in with more details like a meet up time and place as we nail those down. Cheers!

    What are conditions like on that road right now? How far up do you expect to go?

    Our truck needs some work right now, so it’s okay for driving around on streets and can handle tame stuff, but I don’t think it’s up for anything arduous.

    Last week there was snow up above 4500 but we won’t be going that high. I would plan for it though. Also no serious trails, just FS roads.

    The plan for tomorrow is to meet up at the Smokey Point Safeway between 10:00 and 10:30 am. From there we can fill up and grab supplies if needed and then head out hwy 530 toward Darrington. Coms are CB radio channel 22. If people need tree permits we can stop by the ranger station and then head up NF-18 and make our way to the lunch spot about 15 miles in. I will bring fire wood for a fire to help keep us warm. We welcome anyone who wants to tag along and look forward to a good time!
