Dec. 19th. Wheeling in West Branch, MI

Ok, too much talk about getting a group together and not enough action.

So. Dec. 19, which is a Sunday, let's wheel. Let's also hope snow will be on the ground!!!!!

I propose meeting up at 10AM at Walmart (easy to find). I'm also thinking maybe hitting the Lumbar Jack for breakfast around 9ish if people want to come.

The trails will be state trails and some motorsport area, which means an ORV sticker will be required. Other than that, nothing too tough. A stock rig would work fine. Even with snow, it shouldn't be too difficult unless snow is unusually deep for the time of year.

Who's in?

I'd love to go but can't commit this far in advance. Lots of stuff going on near Christmas time.

I am not 100% sure i am going BUT i can tell you there are some new rock courses at the St. Helen motor sports Area.

I took my mostly stock jeep over the bunny hill and it was easy but the next step up in difficulty, you would need 35's and lockers.

I am interested in going.

Yup. I plan to take the group by the rock courses. Will probably be a lunch stop or something. There are quite a few tight trails through the motorsport area we will likely hit as well

Spread the word! No worries about people committing. This is a casual thing. I just want to be sure people know about it is all. Even still, I'm sure there will be people saying, "I wish I would have known." lol

That's fine. All the trails are in the limits of a stocker. Some are tight, but that's all about the driver, not the vehicle. If we get snow by them it could be interesting though...

It's not looking good for me at this point, but perhaps things could change in a few weeks.

I hope you can too. There is a bunch more to wheeling than parks. Parks are fun, but there is something about exploring trails and seeing some scenery that is great. Toss in a little technical wheeling, and it's hard to beat.

More trails than we could hit in a day...

It's been snowing on and off for the past week. Only an inch or so on the ground, but we still have almost two weeks. Pray for snow. 8 to 12 inches would perfect!!!!


Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

I just sent PMs to everyone that has posted in this thread that wanted to go.

IF anyone else wants to join but hasn't posted here, just shoot me a PM or post here. I'd hate to leave and then find out somebody came up to go, but missed the group.

Snow is on the ground! Wheeling should be fun. However, maybe I shouldn't have scheduled this so close to Christmas. lol

Currently, I only have confirmed one other guy to go wheeling. For those that can't make it, I'll be doing another run sometime mid January.
