The Hiles clan currently consists of myself, Doug, my wife, Lisa, and son, Jake. About 2 years ago my wife and I were on a horse rescue mission near Yelm and our truck broke down with horse and trailer in tow, there was only one (1) person that stopped to help. I feel horrible not remembering his name but he was definitely the nicest person you could hope to run into on the side of the road! From that point my wife and I decided that if we ever built built the street leagal crawler I always wanted, we would join the broke bastards club because if there are more people like that in your club.... that is where we belong The rig we bought/built is an 84 toyota 4runner, 22r, 5speed, on 35's. Weber carb, thorley header, aprox 6-7" lift, Chevy 63's and shooter shackles in the rear, stock rear springs up front, high steer, long travel rancho shocks, welded difs. front and rear with interior cage. She doesn't look all that great bud does what she was built for very well Would like to get info on your next meeting and look forward to meeting you all soon.
Welcome to the site, you probably ran into one of the original group that is from that area. Some of them have joined the board, but we haven't heard from them in a while. The site doesn't have as much traffic as we used to, Our current group is spread out in the Oregon area, members live in Sandy, Vancouver, Newberg, Salem, & LaPine. This group has 1 of the original members, & we try to live up to the standards of the OG members. Our meetings are sporadic at best. We will be going to TSF for Labor day weekend for our next run.
In memory of ONETON72GMC RIP Gary, watch over us when we are in the woods.
