Mounds Run - Friday June 29

A rare mid-day run at the Mounds in Mt. Morris, Michigan. Good for a "get away day" from work before the holiday week!

The run starts at 12pm and will go on until 5-6pm. Lots of trails, mud pits and a nice rock garden of varying difficulty levels to test your rig out.

Michigan ORV sticker required. $11 gets you in. No flag needed.

Post up if you're interested!

Say, would you like a chocolate covered pretzel? They're a little melty, but damn, are they exquisite.

Maybe I can say that since I left on Memorial day for Japan that I deserve an extra day off? Never been to Mounds and would like to go. Put me as a strong Maybe

Ryan - as a participant in your 3 hour ordeal, and since you say you've never been there, I feel it is my duty to warn you that Mounds mud is much stickier than Bundy mud, that is even more true when it is dry out there, and there are more trucks out there running tractor tires in the mud. Think very deep ruts.....

You've been warned!!!

Ah man!

Sad news anyway, my local pool team friends just informed ne, or reminded me rather, that next weekend is our kayak trip. Leaving Thursday night...so no mounds for me...

I'm going through wheeling withdrawals!!

Oh poop That sucks Ryan. Was looking forward to wheeling with us. It's been several months!!

Well we were going to just do the rocks there for a few hours. Hate mud too so will stay away from that crap.

Too bad. You finally plan a trip you can make and no one else can. :-(

Yeah the irony is pretty funny. Really wanted to climb some rocks. Ever since I got my Aussie and Truetracs, I haven't climbed so much as a curb protector! Rutted ground doesn't cut it - I want rocks!

R&V winch hill has my name on it. The end of July is just too far away

Hey what! Chris, I may still be in on this idea if you can play it last minute once I know my Friday schedule. As of right now, it looks good unless a client suddenly "needs" my counsel.

Where's TmP? He usually is up for this.

Hmmm! OK I'm in! I'm hoping Bill can make it too. Then it's three rigs. Not bad. Either way, as long as I have someone there to tag team with, I'm game. Want to try out my lockers on the rocks!

I should be able to wait until 11am on Friday before heading out so let me know Friday morning if you're still able to make it
