Great Lakes Group

Hey all you Jeepers from the Great Lakes Area. I would like to start a Group for us, with some help that is. If you are in the Great Lakes Area and would like to be involved in the group post up. Just an area to get to know who all is in the Great Lakes. Post up some pictures, chat, go wheeling and just get to know people.So lets try to put this thing together. Does anyone know how to start the group on here? I have not been on this site very long. And didn't notice a group.

I'm highrlr (John)

Considering this is a Great Lakes group, I will post this.
June 12th, GLFWDA will be having some groups up on Drummond Island for some wheeling and then Sunday the 13th is the Quarterly meeting. That same week, UFWDA will be having their meeting in Traverse City, and then GLFWDA will be taking them to Drummond Island.

I have wheeled with four of you guys in this thread at least once in the past; it’s good to see some familiar names on here…

What do you want to get rolling? Let's go wheeling and quit bitching about it.

I'm going this coming Sunday with a group, but it's more of a trail planning ride as there are a number of us from GLFWDA that are working with the DNR to connect sections of the ORV Routes in West Branch area to make one large Route. In the process we're hoping to include some fun / challenging areas.

Other than that, Drummond Island Invasion is in April. It's a free event. Just come and wheel basically.

Also in April, the Two Trackers are having their annual trail cleanup around Mears. The following day is GLFWDA quarterly meeting and everyone ends up playing on the Dunes.

In July, GLFWDA is having the quarterly and some wheeling on Drummond Island, and then we're hosting UFWDA that week.

Probably in August (still in planning stage) GLFWDA will be doing Northern Migration '10. This year, we will likely be starting at Bundy Hill, working north to Rocks & Valleys, maybe hit some trails around Grayling or Wolverine, and then ultimately end up on Drummond and hit Turtle Ridge. This will all happen over the course of 4 days. I will post more info in a new thread once I have some ideas of specific dates. Also should mention I made need some assistance if anyone wants to help with this...
