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

I'm going. I went last year for the first time. It was a blast. I haven't look on line yet, when is it this year, also I am from saginaw.

What is the web address for the event? I'm from the Rochester area and may be interested.

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

Thanks! I subscribed to their news letter. May 5th may be do-able, if I start working on my wife now.

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.

I'll be going again this year. Last year camped at twisted trails and wheeled there after blessing and Sunday too

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.

I hope to go this year, I live in ionia and work in lansing.

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.

MoparMuscleFreak 04-04-2012 06:42 AM

I live in perry too I work in Lansing at Tuffy auto service I'm the manager of the one by Frandor next to the 127 on ramp across from flap jacks

studlypotato 04-04-2012 12:06 PM

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.

MoparMuscleFreak 04-04-2012 02:16 PM

No i don't know who owns that one its right off of Britton rd right by the after hours.... I oogle it every time I drive by it it's a beautiful jeep dang 5 is a little to early for me lol

studlypotato 04-05-2012 05:04 AM

Yeah it is a beauty and 5 is way to early for me too, but gotta make that $$$ to fuel the addiction. LOL

jp2611 04-05-2012 05:26 AM

Thinkin about the long drive from IN for the blessing...anyone else thinkin' of meetin' up on the way?

kjwhite622 04-06-2012 04:13 PM

Does anyone know if you have to signe up to go. I emailed the club website and have gotten no reply.

stans1stjeep 04-06-2012 05:18 PM

Based ön what I was told, you can just show up. They also need help this month with course setup. Call ahead or you want to help.

ggross 04-06-2012 05:52 PM

I went last year. You just sign up when you get there.

Rubicon2 04-06-2012 10:35 PM

You sign up when you get there.

grover0878 04-07-2012 07:17 AM

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?

Rubicon2 04-07-2012 07:29 AM

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.

MoparMuscleFreak 04-26-2012 07:15 PM

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

miethead 04-27-2012 03:39 AM

I believe gates open at 8. It is like 10 bucks at the gate. It can be an all day thing, depends how long you wanna stay. I camp at twisted trails, so I am no help with other places to stay
