Open to anyone ?

Rebel_Ryders_Offroad 01-17-2013 02:53 PM

Yep :)

All Terrain JK 01-18-2013 05:29 AM

I'd like to attend. Do you guys camp in Mio? If so what campground so I can make reservations.

Rebel_Ryders_Offroad 01-18-2013 06:08 AM

That part hasn't been planned yet. Some people have property up there so they will stay at their property's. some may go back to st Helen to camp. Some may go home. We just don't know yet

Going to be passing through on Friday, we will be on the Atlanta system for the weekend doing our semi-annual DNR ORV Maintenance Grant project.

mac56 02-17-2013 08:19 AM

Any good area motels ?

Rebel_Ryders_Offroad 02-17-2013 02:12 PM

I dunno. I don't stay in hotels. I sleep in the woods lol

Miltman86 02-19-2013 02:44 PM

I def will try to be there. I grew up in st helen and my dad still lives there. I never been to the trails in Mio

ptrckmcconn 03-19-2013 08:19 PM

I live in Hillman (about 45 miles away). I'll try to make it. We are fortunate to have many good trails in northeastern Michigan, and thousands of miles of two tracks. Sounds like fun.

phittie1100 03-20-2013 06:19 AM

And don't forget, if you are playing in Mio that weekend the What Lies Beyond Jeep Club will be hosting a Go Topless Day picnic at Clear Lake State Park on that same Saturday, feel free to stop in around dinner time for a burger or hot dog.

This sounds like a good ride --- Does anyone have any idea of what trails or route -- Is the trailhead the bullgap trailhead off river rd?

Rebel_Ryders_Offroad 03-21-2013 07:56 PM

From what we are hearing from our trail guide. We will be starting at the bull gap parking lot. They are going up next weekend to map out the run and as soon as he send the info ill post it

ptrckmcconn 03-22-2013 09:49 PM

Mac56: Yeh, there are some decent hotels. A nice one right on M33, north of the Ausable River. They cater to tourists in that area. Plenty of camping, too.

vankemp 03-23-2013 07:59 PM

Anyone have any trails around the Mio area they would recommend? I might be heading up this weekend. Any links to a good map or GPS file?

vankemp 03-24-2013 09:43 PM

Spent some time in and around Mio area trails, I even ran up and down bull gap. Of course the pictures don't capture the true incline (for those that have never been there)

sevenservices 04-01-2013 12:30 PM

We are hoping to make it up... Our cabin is about an hour from Mio. Depending on where we meet we might just get a campsite.

NeedAWD 04-03-2013 07:09 AM

i think i might be in for this one. going to try to get the xj back into shape for this trip.

Abnormal-JK 04-06-2013 02:53 PM

Keep me posted. I have room for campers in East Tawas... Even let ya use the toilet :- love to hook up...

sevenservices 04-08-2013 10:20 AM

Nice, we're not far from Tawas, our cabin is about 1 mile from Lumbermans Monument a little ways off Monument Rd. There are also some cool 2 tracks by Cooke Dam...

Mudviper 04-24-2013 08:55 PM

Planning on being there

ggross 04-24-2013 11:08 PM

I planning on going.

rgarrison3 04-25-2013 09:03 AM

I wish they would hurry up and finish building my new jeep (est. delivery May 4th, but no guarantee)! This looks like exactly the type of trail that myself and my Fiance would like to start off on with the jeep!

Abnormal-JK 05-01-2013 09:13 PM

What's the schedule for Saturday? I have to work til 2, be up to Tawas by 3:30... Anything going on Saturday late in the day?


Mudviper 05-03-2013 10:02 AM

Made reservations at the Mio Motel for Saturday night. After talking to the guy that runs it though, I am a little scared about staying
