That sounds awesome. I grew up on 10 acres and it was a blast to drive fourwheelers, snowmobiles and, of course, Jeeps!

sounds good, but 1st check your local zoning laws and make sure you can get insurance on your idea.

yes, im planning on checking the zoning laws and such, thanks for the heads up though..

if nothing else just a great place for us jeepers to hang out and have a good ole time.(family style) if you know what i mean..

i had the property logged a year ago but did not clear cut..

we already have some nice logging roads and a couple mud pits, i ride every day(cant get enough---lol)

just some thoughts going threw my head...i own a rental community on 6 acrs there but it would not interfear with the wheeling..

just think it would be nice to have some fun competitions with the jeeps, or heck 4 wheelers, anyhing off road.

thanks...bap

Cool! That's what a guy did in Colfax, LA (called Louisiana Mudfest). Now, just a couple years into it, has live concerts on 3-day weekends and even is on the Travel Channel this week. It's a real good time. He allows 4-wheelers, all 4WD's, campers, tents, campfires, etc The only rule is to not feed the cows. LOL

Better yet... if your horses are tame enough... sell the grain to people to feed the horses (like a petting zoo). LOL
^ nice idea.

I've also had to sign waivers denying all liability when I've wheeled in some public areas here in MI. Just incase anyone gets hurt... Must have an adult sign.

these horses are as tame as they can get, there like puppy dogs--lol

as far as the waiver, yep...it,s a must,,

and i really want to get this going,-should i go to my lawyer and set up a legal waiver. i wasnt thinking about charging to wheel here but maybe have to have help paying for the build, maybe a small fee for a 3 day pass or even season pass.

but i really just want to open a playground for us wheelers that we dont have to worry about the gates being shut, and just haveing a great time with the competions or just wheeling around..

what are your thoughts on this,
it is a great place and could be so much more.

Honestly, people would expect to pay something, and most wouldn't mind it either just to have a fun and "legal" place to go for a day or the weekend. I mean, how convenient would THAT be to have a place to meet your buddies and go muddin all weekend?

thanks guy,s --this is going to happen and i cant wait to get it started..

it would be great to open it with a meet and greet for the w.f.

there are real nices places on the farm now so may not take too long to just get it open for some wheeling..

If you build it they will come. Us jeepers in GA will make the trip if needed.

I would travel from North Georgia, too. I've spent some quality time in Whitesburg... Are you near there?

post up on your flyers (or put up a sign) that you can't really afford to build it up and ask folks to donate what they can afford to or volunteer to help build it. That doesn't work these days for most things, but I'd be willing to bet that a large chunk of the jeeper population would help you out :)

Put an ad on CL asking for local jeep clubs to help. You should be able to find a good waiver format online and just make whatever changes are needed.
