My name is Michael Graham and I'm retired from the U.S. Army as an Infantry First Sergeant with 23 years of service. I did one tour in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. I presently own a Process Service Company in Tacoma. I am originally from Upstate New York but after being stationed in Washington I knew immediately that this part of the county felt like home. Back in the 1980's I owned a Jeep CJ5. This was my first 4x4 but back in the 80's there wasn't a lot of hype and add-on parts as there are today. Building my rig has been half the fun. Making it my own style. I have actually found it to be an addiction. I live in the Pacific Northwest, in the Tacoma / Puyallup area and loves the sport of "wheeling" which allows access to so much more than a hiking trailhead. I really enjoy organized rides and poker runs and love the freedom and exploration this sport allows. Finding this website and authoring trail write-ups has really enhanced this sport I have grown to love. If you are new to the sport or just looking for someone to show you the trails I would love to hear from you. You can email me directly at "mike.trailsoffroad@gmail.com"

My Trail Reviews (2)

(within last 6 months)
Midnight Creek (11/15/2022)
This forest service road is closed for the season and there is a washout at waypoint 4. Hoping maybe the forest service can get the funding needed to reopen next summer.
Tahuya/ South Loop (11/05/2022)
This trail has been re-written on November 30, 2022. This trail is a blast to run. Not really scenic and pretty but I could really feel like my jeep was groaning and I could hear springs popping. Come on share your jeeps best flex pose.
