SE Michigan Gatherings?

I haven't been able to find any clubs or anything of the like locally (Metro Detroit area). But I do see a ton of jeeps around the area in all shapes and sizes so maybe I'm missing something?

Thanks for the info guys, I did check out quite a few of those but I'd still like to try to get some people together from this forum for a possible (off or on road) meet. If anyone on here would be interested either shoot me a PM or just post here.

The last few years there have been a number of Monday night gatherings in downtown Farmington. Just waiting for the weather to get slightly better. A lot of guys have resorted to Facebook to communicate. You may want to look up Border city jk (109 members). A few of the trips get over 30 Jeeps and most are in the 15-20 range.

I'm thinking we could possibly make a trip out to Rocks and Valleys Offroad Park but it would probably be 2 hours or so away. Anyone else have any closer suggestions? Maybe we can have a poll and get 10-15 Jeeps together for a Weekend or a Sunday.

Where I am, Bundy Hill Offroad Park is about an hour from me. I don't know where that is in relation to everyone else, but I'd be up for it!

Probably too far for most of you from what I have read, but we had our first get together at Snappers just west of Fenton, MI. 5-9 pm Tuesdays, we had 34 Jeeps for our first get together.

I just got my first jeep a 2014 jku and I'm from Belleville, but starting next Monday and Tuesday I'm up in Oscoda every other week. My days off are Monday/Tuesday, during July and August I'll be up on Sundays too, so we'll have to meet up one time. Otherwise I'm right by metro airport and there has been talk of getting together in Westland sometime coming up, but nothing usa naked down yet.

What do you guys think of setting up a local meet and greet type of thing so we can possibly setup something to go up north in the coming weeks? Seems like it would be easier that way then trying to do this over the forums.

If everyone could pm me where there comin from I'll try to find as central of a location as possible. My thoughts are someplace like Buffalo Wild Wings with a patio where we can all sit out and look and talk jeeps.

Hello All. I apologize for such the delay in a meeting. Recent injury had me somewhat incapacitated. I know many of the group are from Oakland county, but home town is having a cruise. http://www.donnicholson.net/allamerican.htm if anyone is interested in getting together for it let me know. As well, if anyone else is aware of any other cruises, post them up!

I live in Ann Arbor and have recently re-Jeeped my lifestyle (AKA: finally bought another Jeep after long, sad years without), so I'm looking for the same thing. PM me and maybe we can make a trip to some spots around here. Even though this is my third Jeep, I'm pretty new to off-roading (just used old Jeeps to play in the snow and pull snowboarders in field, etc) so I'm looking for people to learn from too!

And thanks to whoever it was that posted the listing of Michigan groups!
