Centreville, 2 counties over (St Joe County)
You guys know of any legal trails relatively nearby?
Up by Baldwin, some of those trails are Jeep-legal, looking for something similar closer though.

It isn't closer but if you like to play in the sand take a trip up to silver lake, acres of sand and a real BLAST!

Used to take my Bronco II up there but that was 1987...
All that sand gets into everything, not so great for brakes. It was fun though.
I just like a nice quiet trail, preferably without weekend warriors taking their half out of the middle flying around turns.

True.. We'd probably get a good amount of people. I mean i see at least 5-10 Jeeps that are modified in some way a day just in kalamazoo/portage alone. So we'd get members.

I was told there is somewhere you can ride over by "Zimmyville" can anyone verify this?
I'd be up for starting a club of our own, but wouldn't be of much use until done with school. Term and a half to go!

Absolutely not, this should be a family thing. I include my wife, Kim, in just about everything. Agreed?
