How bad is the drive up to the pit from the 435 road? Would a Toyota Tacoma be able to make it up?


Mine did, it was no trouble at all, that was last summer (and dry).

There is one steep part on the road that goes to the pit off of the 18 Road that is ruttedup from the kids and their big jacked up trucks.
Just hug the left side on the way down & the right side coming on out.

I go almost every weekend with my two wheel drive Ford Ranger.

Some guys drive down there with their cars.

It's been a while since we have took a trip up to the Darrington pits. Thereafter has-been bad then I needed surgery. They did that on June 10th. It's been a week yesterday and I'm still sore as hell.
I got a bunch of 223, 38spl & 357mag all wet tumbled, resized, flared and primed.
Maybe next week I'll be able to get them loaded.
I want to get Mason back in the shooting saddle again.
I had a AR223 rifle and a AR223 pistol made up for him.

If any reading this has an extra AR carry case or two they are not useing anymore I'd be interested in buying them instead of buying new ones.
I'm sure the pit will have a ton of shotgun hulls and more steel rifle & pistol cases to b
Pick up.
At this point I'm not capable to pick them up.

Speedy recovery, Pat. Hope you get back at it soon, but don't push it.

Happy Fathers Day, Gramps!

Don’t overdo it Pat, it’ll set you back months. Put Mason to work with the picking up and lifting. :bigsmile:

Mason sure is itching to get back out.
It is wet up here, not to bad, but could get bad. I think I'll finish getting some ammo loaded up and maybe get him out tomorrow.
It's supposed to get up to. 90 on Sunday.

If anyone plans on going up there soon please lmk. I only know green mountain for outdoor shooting and it's harder and harder to find a spot there anymore. Wanted to go today but weather sucks

I might go to the 435th pit on Friday if that works for you.

Jim I'll keep in touch with you on a day of fishing. I don't think I could handle driving there & back and the time out on the lake right now.

Today I loaded up around 200 38spl rounds for Mason to shoot and started some 223 for the H&R Handi-Rifle. Tomorrow morning I'll finish loading some more 223 for Mason's AR guns.
I'll probably head up to the 435th Ave pit around 10 maybe 10"30 in the morning if any one wants to go.

I called a friend about going and he has plans for tomorrow'.
