Blessing of the jeeps

Just wondering who out there is going to the blessing of the jeeps in mesick... Would anyone from around the Lansing area that's been to it previously like to meet up? I've never been there looks like a lot of fun last year the count was over 900 Jeeps

You can find many videos on youtube by searching "blessing of the jeeps" to give you a taste of what it's like.

I'm about a half hours drive from Mesick. Been to the Blessing the past three years. It is a good time and you won't be disappointed.

I made my reservation today for 2012 blessing. I'm going to make a album of the event, start shooting Friday in Mesik then all day Saturday at the blessing. this should be a lot of fun with great pics. The pics in the album are going to be numbered so if you see yourself in the album you can email me (I'll make that available after completion and editing) then I can email your choices for I won't be able to get every name and shot.

Just watched some of the videos on youtube. Looks great, seems to be a lot that a stock JKU could do as well, hopefully I can talk the wife into going, the 5th is her birthday.

FYI, I called Jake at the Cadillac Jeepers, they will be setting up the course in April and could use some help. Call him if you want to help (testing after set up is standard).

Where do you work? The wife and I live in Perry, and we both work in Lansing @ JCIM. We are thinking about going, it would be our first.

We go by there every morning around 5, on our way into work. It's a little easier on the gas going that way instead taking 69 to 127. That way goes a little out of the way and since there's no traffic on Lansing Rd and M-78 and most of the lights are flashing yellow it also shaves at least 10mins off the commute.

You don't happen to know who own the maroon Rubicon across from the after hours clinic? I love it, it looks amazing in that color with all the mods. I will purposely drive by there real slow just to oogle it, it irritates the crap out my wife b/c she doesn't think the color looks good.

How long are the lines to get on some of the courses? I've checked out some of the videos and pics and it looks like there are a ton of jeeps there. Just wondering if if you spend a lot of the day waiting in line?

Depends on how fast you get to the course when they say go. I've always just watched others beat on their Jeeps. Except on the stock baby course. You wouldn't spend the whole day but you could spend up to about an hour depending on how busy it is. It's constantly moving unless someone gets hung up.

When does it start, where does it start, is it a all day thing? All weekend? Where is there good places to stay? How much is it to register? I wish the website would say more since on traveling 163 miles
