Going to stop at a random place for lunch between Busch wildlife and Hermann. Then pics in Hermann. Then coming back down to st Charles. Let me know if u guys want something else to do!!!!

Please excuse the paranoia here but isn’t mudding up at Ameristar a bit on the mischief side since the Ameristar is probably the most secured location in St Charles? And I have spent lots of time out at Busch W.A. over the last 20+ years and off-roading there isn’t exactly an activity they promote. Can you be more specific with details?

BTW, here is pic as far off-road as I’ve been at Busch, except for walking.

I think since we have so many keeps going that I'm gonna stay away from ameristar. Busch I think will be a picture spot by the lakes.

St Charles riverfront will be packed (people wise) with the Christmas season in full swing, a cruise down the cobblestone would be neat, and for anyone who is on the cruise if you haven't seen Main street at Christmas time its kinda neat, they pay actors to dress in 1800's garb and just walk among the people all day, taking pictures and handing out "playing cards" about their character. No offence (in case he's a Jeeper) but the guy who plays Scrooge is a real ass...lol...stays in character no matter what.

I am throwing it out there that meet at Bass Pro, start the cruise with 11 jeeps going down main street to "sightsee" then we can loop back riverfront dr and goto the Lewis and Clark boat house and maybe get some cool staged pics of the group of jeeps. Then we can get road bound....from their I am open to whatever food ideas you have, I've never been to Hermann or Busch wildlife so I am only giving my .02 on the St. Charles part since I know the area.

And I am not against getting muddy, but the idea of cleaning mud off the jeep on a 40 degree day, right before Christmas doesn't sounds fun. And I will say, with 11 Jeeps , finding space for all of them off road may pose the biggest problem.

I'm open for whatever the consensus is...

And...since I am not an extrovert by nature, and I know alot of us have never met before I'm gonna introduce myself here before hand. My name is Kevin, 36, married with 4 kids, Former US Marine, concrete finisher by trade. I like to work on the jeep and spend weekends in the garage tinkering on anything that needs fixing. I look forward to meeting everyone, making some facebook/jeeper friends in the area and enjoying a day out in the Jeep with some new friends.

This is me (pardon the scowl...lol) and my jeep, and my jeep on mud!

That is one fine mud art there. Love the way the JEEP badge stands out.

My name is Randy, 55. I hope to do the day with all ya'll. The ride thru St. Charles sounds good and the ride to Busch. It's up in the air after that for me right now. Not sure if the wife will go. I love to get behind a camera so I'm sure I will bring one or two.

Seems like this would be a great time to have a CB. I've kicked the idea around to get one but they are so hard to find. Any suggestions?

Here I am cruising down 61 from Troy in the fast lane.
Must have been going down hill...

So I think instead of Hermann. We are gonna go down 94 past Washington until we hit lost creek road. This is actually legal and it has some mud holes and crosses through creeks and stuff. Is this ok with everyone?

Sounds good to me.

Looks like it loops back into Warrenton which is a good run back down 70 to wherever food/home might be

I looked at 94 & Lost Creek on Google maps. Looks like you're talking about a 10-mile trip on Lost Creek heading north/east to Hwy U then just a few miles to Warrenton. A person could break off the pack there or travel back to 94 and enjoy the trip all the way back.

It looks great on the Google satellite map. Most of the road is hidden by trees and in some places it seems to blend into the creek.

So by the time we gather at Bass Pro and let everyone check us out wondering thru St Charles, maybe by time we get to Marthasville we can find some place there for lunch. Or maybe on the way back thru; not sure how the time will go. I don't know anything about Marthasville other than I have a coworker that lives there. Anyone have more suggestions in that area?

Yeah I'm looking forward to it. 11 Jeeps huh... I wasn't sure there was 11 people looking at this thread. I must not be paying attention.

I'd say start to finish st Charles is 35-40 minutes, and that's stopping to regroup at the boat house.

Not sure there is much in marthasville.

tbrown, are you familiar with this "trail"? I had assumed you traveled it. 30 foot straps, walkie talkies, 40° weather, pull the windows out.

I have a strap or two plus the 100' cable on the front bumper. I'll be lucky though if I remember to put my jack back in since I Line-Xed the tub. I have a couple walkie talkies if they still work or even if I can find them. I did order the Uniden Pro 510XL CB Radio from Quadratec yesterday. Hopefully it will come in so I can have it installed but if I'm the only one who has one it won't be such a fun toy to play with.

I'll probably make the decision on a return trip when we get near Warrenton.

That's like a pistol without bullets.

Mine should show up tomorrow. Maybe I'll have it hooked up.

I mentioned our saturday trip to a buddy at work today. He said he traveled that road once a long time ago. Something about needing to get to 70 and a road was closed, following a guy in 4x4, he was in a car, winter time, there was some hills he didn't think he would make it. Yeah he said we will really enjoy that trip. He said he always thought he would go back and travel it again. Sounds promisssing.

Unfortunately I won't be able to make the run due to work but I still at least plan to make it over to the meet point to at least say hi to everyone and maybe snap a few pics there.
