Jeep JK Ultimate Advneture Run for Blessing of the Jeeps

The Blessing of the Jeeps event is Saturday May 1st. I was thinking of making a weekend run out of this event sort of our own JK Ultimate Adventure. I checked into it and Rocks and Valleys will be open on Friday and Twisted trails will be open on Sunday.

If you haven't heard of the Blessing of the Jeeps it is a really big event. Largest Jeep parade in the world, grate event, obstacle course, etc.

Friday Rocks and Valleys - Harrison Mi then travel 1 hour to Mesick
Saturday Blessing of the Jeeps - Mesick
Sunday Twisted trail - Copemish 15 min from Mesick

Mesick has a State Park for camping if you want to stick closely to the UA format or they also have Hotels with swiming pools for the kids.

Here is some info on the Parks:

Twisted Trails:

I also posted this in events & gatherings - just trying to drum up some interest. It'd be sweet to roll up to the Blessing with a bunch of JKs. And the wheeling at these 2 parks can't be beat. It's going to be fucking sweet.

I'll be going to the Blessing but can't really do a run with you that weekend. However, GLFWDA is hosting a mini UA type event. This year will be hitting Bundy Hill on day 1, Rocks and Valleys on day 2, work north to Drummond Island and hitting Turtle Ridge on day 3 and 4.

The event will be Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday (19th through 22nd).
