Should've figured that out on my own lol. So it's just the 11th? I'll be out of town until Sunday, and I'm not sure when I'll be back. I'm also very new to offroading and haven't done anything technical.

It is my understanding that these guys aren't hard core wheelers. Just mild trails around the lake. I've not wheeled with them before, but since my Jeep is my DD, I take it pretty easy on her... :)

That's how mine is for the time being... I don't think I'm going to be able to make it down. Not sure exactly when I'll be back from Ohio.

I'll be there, I think they are going to be running the back roads and trails off the Trace, and stopping to cook out.

I'll do my best to be there. Especially if Inferodoggy is coming. :D Where and when are you guys meeting? Not going to Turkey Bay? I went wheeling on the backroads in LBL the week I bought my Jeep with a guy I work with. Good fun, I'd love to do it with a group of Jeeps. :punk:

I'm seriously considering it!
Like you, it would mean an early morning but what the heck!

Umm... is it supposed to rain this weekend?
If so, I hear it gets slick as snot on a hot rock up there. I've never been, but have been waiting for an excuse.

Where can I get more details?

Let's Roll

We will meet at the north welcome station near Grand Rivers. I would say about 10:45 or so. Weather is supposed to be great. So let's OIIIO. Hey Warlock do you mind going to the north welcome station instead of Aurora? I will bring charcoal for grilling but we will use grilling pits at one of the stops. Does any one have a large grate in case we have to have something to grill on hopefully not.:D:wavey:
