Swedish 4x4 mag visiting

Hi,
together with a photographer I will cover the Auto Show in January. Would love to do a piece about the offroad hobby in Michigan.
We´ve got Saturday 10th of January free. If there are any meetings or other activities we would appreciate a tip about it.
A nicely tricked out Wrangler would also be interesting to cover.

All the best - and a Merry Christmas to all Jeep fans!

What types of events are you looking for specifically? Are you looking for a snow run? Or just want to get some pictures of some Jeeps gathered somewhere? I am sure a few of us would love to get together to get our Jeeps in a magazine! Please feel free to PM me with more information or post here so that we can all take a look. I will more than likely be at the auto show at least one day again this year, so maybe we can even do something there. Let me know, and keep the information coming.

It would be better to just wheel the whole time since GM, Chrysler and Ford won't be able to make the show.

Open for suggestions

Thank you so much for replying jeeperman!
We´ll keep an open mind and set aside the whole Saturday. I guess that there aren´t that many events during the winter. A gathering of enthusiasts in a nice environment would be great.
We´re gonna stay in a hotel downtown Detroit.
Let´s keep in touch!

4point: The thought has crossed my mind. But now that Bush has stepped up to the plate we gotta have look at the show!

Snow

I got a tip about the Sno-fari. Think we´ll try to go there.

Thanks for your input, guys!

Thanks for the offer Yellowjacket, but we´re going to the Sno-fari in West Branch, although it´s a long drive.
Looking forward to an adventure in snow - hope there´s lots of it in north Michigan!

Yes, we had a GREAT time!
It was freezing cold, the snow was thigh-high ... and we loved it. Lots of winching, towing and action.
We were cuddled and pampered and taken care of like... I don't know what to say. You guys are the best! Jim Mazzola III, your wife, Mike Watch, Bob DeVore ... and all the ones who´s name I can´t remember just now.
Thank you for a fantastic day!

Gunnar
