Kessie Jeep farm November 8th...

So who's going? I'm signed up.. They are offering a 101 class at 10am, then wheeling at 1pm if I understand it right..

I would probably do it as soon as possible but I don't really think their is a deadline. Just before the date as long as their is a spot open.

I have attempted to contact Kessie Farms about registering for the Nov. 8th event but have been unable to do so. The phone number on the website is not accurate and emails have gone unanswered. How did you register? I would like to attend the 101 class along with wheeling. Can you advise?

Sometimes it takes a couple of days to get an answer on emails. I'm sure you will be fine. They will make a spot for you.

for your help. I was finally able to contact them and reserve a spot. Looking forward to making the trip, introducing my 9 yr old grandson to the world of Jeeping and hopefully make some new Hoosier friends

Made the 150 mile trip from Chicago to Ft. Wayne and I gotta tell ya, it was worth the trip. Friendly, laid back, helpful. Can't say enough about Tom Kessie and his family. Class was informative and the wheeling superb. Also made a few new Hoosier Jeep friends. Some pics later.

Glad you had a great time . Kessies are a class act. And some of the nicest people I have ever met.

I met so many nice and friendly people out there it was hard to keep names, faces and forum handles straight!!!!
But as I get out there more often (which I intend to do) I'll get everyone straight. Perhaps name tags with our forum names?

Hey Allen sorry to hear you guys sick thought maybe just the little guy would get it and the rest of ya would dodge it......but it appears it got all of ya...so that's it for the year right? and you should be able to make the Dec date?

Thanks for asking James...and yeah second surgery fixed everything...after they took all the hardware out...it is pretty much "back to normal"...as normal as broken bones ever get.....you should plan to make it for the Dec date as well as Allen.....trails are already pretty challenging....Sat was very similar to Jeep Jam. I plan to go and make a FULL DAY in Dec ....assuming I don't break and not freezing my a$$ off. They have a new food "supplier" out there as well. Toms food was good, but this was different...pulled pork, chili dogs, potato salad, HUGE Rice Krispie treats, home made cookies, $5 and you had all you wanted. Money went to a non-profit in Whitley county for elderly....you know Kessie's always about helping someone else out.......Hope to see you guys in Dec!!

I think I already know the answer to this question, but I hope you don't mind an outsider crashing your party. Bobby and I had a great time meeting you that he asked when would we be going again? I agree. So, if the weather does not prevent a 150 mile trip, I plan on coming in December.
