Trail Runs near Mio May 18 2013

ThumbJeeps is running some trails this Saturday. Jeeps of Michigan will be as well.

We (ThumbJeeps) have the following plans:

Mio Area Trail Runs
Saturday May 18'th 2013, 9:00am
Group Leader: Andy Burdo
Difficulty: Mild, Sandy two track trails/Public ORV Trails (Moderate if you tempt your fate on large sand hills lol)
Meeting location: Glens Market in Mio, 305 Morenci Ave Mio, MI 48647
Airing down tires: Yes, most trails are sand (You can stop at a local gas station to air up at the end of the day if you do not have a compressor)
Summary: A morning/afternoon of trail runs.
Bring drinks & snacks.
Probably running into town for lunch.
Bring hand held radios if you have them, standard public band radios. (With fresh batteries).
Bring at least 1 fire extinguisher & a spare tire.


Pre-Trail Run Checklist

Check/change engine oil & filter
Check transmission fluid
Check brake fluid
Check radiator coolant
Check windshield wiper fluid (don't overlook this, you might need it!)
Check belts
Check hoses for cracks and/or leaks
Check/clean air cleaner
Check seat belts and ensure proper function for all passengers
Check tire air pressure (air up for highway driving, air down at trail head, air up prior to trip home. Also check spare tire!)
Check for abnormal tire wear, nails, screws or other damage
Check u-joints for driveshafts and axle shafts
Check and tighten lug bolts
Check brakes
Check tie rods and steering drag link
Grease all fittings (u-joints, steering)
Check gear oils: transfer case & differentials
Check Winch for proper operation, check winch cable for kinks, frays or damage, straighten winch cable if necessary
Check shocks and look over suspension for any abnormalities
Check your memory lol. Is there anything you've been putting off? If so, do it now.
Check Jacks and other recovery gear. Oil if needed.
