I am newer to the omaha area too, I would like to find a way to get to the sand bars on the Elkhorn river. I am from Wichita Kansas, Tuttle Creek is awesome

Unfortunately streams in Nebraska are not public property if you are touching the bottom. If you float it is waters of the state, sandbars and the bottom of rivers streams etc belong to the land owner. Many people get kicked off on the Platte every year for being out on sand bars. And recently.. Past couple of years kids have been shot at on the Elkhorn for stopping while tubing..
I also want to wheel on some sand bars..but if you don't know a landowner on the river you are Sol.

That makes sense to me, I am not about to get shot at or get a trespassing ticket just to wheel a little. Looks like I will have to make some friends up here until I decide to head back to Tuttle creek
12-11-2013 07:50 PM
Yeah I have wanted to just jump off the road n have a good time but I definaty ain't getting shot n I don't feel like dealing with cops.

Do the jeeps in Omaha ever meet up anywhere?
12-12-2013 08:54 AM
Not really sure there is two groups that I know of Just jeeps of Omaha and Nebraska off-road association or something like that.
12-12-2013 01:02 PM
I have heard of just jeeps, but i have never been to their site. Perhaps we should organize a meet and greet somewhere
12-12-2013 01:09 PM
Well I have no problems with meeting up some where but I'm not really free till after new years so it would have to b next moth some time
12-12-2013 01:25 PM
I am busy until next year as well, so January might be a good idea
12-12-2013 08:39 PM
Sweet I'll try to get ahold around that time
12-13-2013 03:43 PM
I am from West Central IA would you mind if I joined? I have nothing local. :(
12-13-2013 03:52 PM
Yeah come along, bring along some iowa jeepers too
12-13-2013 04:26 PM
It sucks because most of the Jeepers in my area are parking lot crawlers. I drive a hour just to meet up with my Jeep club.
12-13-2013 04:37 PM
Yeah I know it is a long drive for me to go to Tuttle creek with 4:56 gears in my jeep but I try to make it twice a year at least
12-14-2013 04:13 PM
Did u happen to do the gears yourself or did u pay for it to be done?
12-14-2013 04:19 PM
When I bought mine it had the gears in already in it. But I will be putting different gears in my mustang in march
12-14-2013 05:42 PM
I'm going to b buying the DPG ultimate tj lift for mine n I know eventually I'm going to have to re-gear but I really don't want to pay for someone to do it because its a whole lot more than I can afford
12-14-2013 05:49 PM
That is the way of my life too always more projects than there is money to fund them
12-15-2013 10:26 AM
I think Thats is all of ours. Now i think I may have another project. My wife has a grand marquis that I have to change either an O2 sensor or the catalatic converter and now I have a pretty loud squeal coming from around my serpentine belt on the jeep I think its the bearing on my alternator but the problem with that is its intermintant so im definitely short of funds with Christmas here
12-16-2013 01:20 PM
O2 sensors are not too bad to deal with and I have to remember the exhaust shop I went to, that guy did a great job on my car when it needed a header gasket replaced
12-16-2013 05:07 PM
I've got a friend of mine Thats gonna help since i have no clue what im doing but I am willing to learn. I can't afford to pay someone do what I could learn to do
12-16-2013 06:38 PM
Smart man! Well if you need help let me know I always like working on cars
12-21-2013 08:11 PM
I am at Offutt as well I drive a 2013 10A 4 door, Anvil if you see me say hi! I see a lot of jeeps on base but have not met anyone yet. I would be game for a meet and greet.
12-22-2013 11:47 AM
