Grandkids are here for the holidays. They trump everything.

Curious though as to what you have in mind. I am not aware of anywhere in the area to wheel. I drive around my own place and my neighbors fields but they are way to wet now. Cutting ruts does not a good neighbor make.

We are at opposite ends of Springfield. Modesto is about the same distance southwest of Springfield as you are northeast.
It's wet and still raining for the third day in row. The overflow on my pond is completely submerged. It is a 12 inch pipe. A lot of water is coming down. All our local creeks are starting to flood. Just wonderful Christmas weather. At least it is not ice!

Darcy's Pint!!! Best Reubans and Horseshoes in town. I'll knock on wood for you. It is still coming down. The dock is going underwater. You have to walk uphill to get out to the floating part. Ducks are carrying umbrellas.

Yeah. Kinda midway between both out in the country... Make the roads a little fun with the snow we got recently. And I didn't need to get plowed out this year. The new rubber helped a bunch

honestly I have no clue. Im new to the jeep thing. im used to just goin out to friends fields and trompin around in my ol truck. It would be nice to find a place where we can pay a few bucks to wheel all day then go home. or to find some friends who are available more often to take us out

too may jeeps and other vehicles. but my dd is an 09 wrangler sahara 4 dr, 4" rc susp, 35" attitides, 17" rebel racing wheels, hi rock bumpers, winch, kc's, rock rails, daystar accessories.....

Villa Grove, just south of Champaign. I work and spend most of my time in champaign. I don't see many modded JK's around here. For the longest time I though I had the only lifted Jeep in Champaign. Now I've seen a few more.
