To be clear, I was referring to Aaron's comments about his engine & Chris' comment about his brakes. On that basis, & that basis alone, I don't want to be behind Aaron, or in front of Chris, this Saturday. LOL!

The brake thing is actually refering to how you tow a vehicle behind you when its not on a trailer. The vehicle being towed slows the tow vehicle so the strap stays tight. So your ok to be in front of chris lol. Now me on the other hand you'll be ahead of me the whole time. So your fine lol

its an I6, you can probably run it on 3 cylinders with water instead of oil and it will still get you home.

Yes, Sunday October 21'st meet at Independant Bank parking lot, downtown Caseville (right in the center across from the grocery store on M25) at 1:00pm.

This will be the late fall Caseville Run. We will run from Caseville all the way through Sand. Rd. to Port Austin then back along the waterfront. Probably stopping off by port austin for a break at the Fireside Inn. Looks like we may get quite a turnout on this one, lots of Jeeps planning to come. Sand Rd. is really cool, its an unimproved sand two track running through the woods. A few miles is normal dirt road but there are several sections of nice woodsy two tracks.

Here is some updated information for Sunday 10-21-2012

Late Fall Color Tour (Tip of Thumb Michigan, Caseville/Port Austin)
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2012 1pm-4pm(ish)
Difficulty Rating: MILD/MODERATE (Mostly Sand Roads)
ORV Sticker required: NO

Caseville MI. We will start and end at this same location in the event there are vehicles to stay behind.

1:00pm Meet in the empty parking lot, East side of Independent Bank in Caseville. Address is; 6727 Main Street, Caseville, MI 48725

1:30pm Depart out of Caseville, head East throughout several two track unimproved sand roads. Follow sand roads all the way to Port Austin. Break in Port Austin at “The Fireside Inn” then travelling the water front back along M25 to Caseville. There are several areas we will traverse with sand however, airing down tires should not be necessary. This is a ThumbJeeps.com event however other off road equipped vehicles are encouraged to participate. No one is left behind, if they want to line up and run with the caravan they are more than welcomed. (There are some areas of moderate sand where greater clearance may be required. Due to this we recommend only Jeeps and Trucks attend. No need to air down and probably won’t even need 4wd. (However, it is not recommended for cars with low ground clearance)

The tour will last approx. 3 hours

Note: Half of the trip is in the woods so you may want to head out of Caseville with at least a half tank of gas.

Items you will want to bring:
1. A CB Radio to keep in touch with the group. (More important for leader and tail) Or, FSR (Handheld Family Service Radio)
2. Camera
3. Water, Snacks and/or other drinks.
4. Money for Fireside Inn if you want to eat, drink or pick up a T-Shirt

I have a lot more, just too much to load here. Did anyone get a picture of the warning signs at the entrance to Sand Road. I thought they were cool, just didn't have the presence of mind to take a picture.
