    Friday we can meet @ CBphotos place in Harrison, MI for Bonfire if you are staying near by.

    -All vehicle(s) makes and models are welcome at said wheeling trip: ANYBODY that wants to wheel their HUMMER or other 4x4 vehicle, trails are tight so larger rigs like H2s will get some scrapes!

    -Park Rules are located here:
    http://rocksandvalleys.com/rules.html

    -recommended items to be in/on your vehicle:
    *a CB radio to "trail chat"
    *fire extinguisher for safety
    *tools & parts for any repairs necessary
    *water just in case you get parched
    *"trail lunch" - sandwich/chips/etc.
    *"yank" straps or bubba rope or winch may come in handy too

    We have been to the park MANY times and it is always a great time. Anyone is invited from Novices to Experienced, Stockers to Mild to Built rigs.
    We are looking forward to getting back to Rocks and Valleys.

    this fits into my schedule too.. I'll update this if I think it'll be just my rig, or if Brobean will be coming along.

    Edit/Update: Brobean is a working man now and can't make it (low man on totem pole).. but I have a buddy who wants to get his brand new/leased Wrangler dirty!

    Sounds like fun. I think I'm going to th UP the week end before and the week end after that. Don't think the war dept will allow three weekends in a row?

    I was thinking I could make it... but I will be in Chicago running a marathon... For Open Heart Magic. They do bedside magic for sicks kids in the hospital. Just started at CS Mott at UM Hospital this year...

    I think this will be much more fun.

    Sorry for the shameless plug... trying to get donations where I can for the cause, ..

    CB, I know how it feels not to get out this summer. i've been busy as a one legged man in a butt kicking contest. (Politically correct?) Now summer is almost gone. I will check the calendar to see if the schedule allows and let you know. Happy wheeling.

    The wife and I were going to head to the cabin in Alpena that weekend. I am trying to convince her to wheel Saturday then head to the cabin. I will let you know soon.

    Snowman: you don't have to be worried about me stealing your door handles. I was able to get them swapped out. And the dent, well it's still there for character.

    Hey CB I talked to my buddy Greg (green jeep) and I think they will also come up with us. By the way is Big Will coming up with the legendary "School Bus" this year?, Gotta love the way he wheels his rig as if he hates it or wants to break it, Maybe both!!

    He just blew up his Tcase, may be fixed by then, not sure if he'll be there or not....I got to use Geno's SFA H3T for a depth check this weekend on Drummond Island, but I missed the Yellow Submarine! (it's not the School Bus) Will is a HELL of a pilot, but Geno did great too out front!!!!!

    Are you missing something Mark? Will's Tcase blew up the week before. The only carnage on our trip was when his wife got home, her trans was acting funny & needs a rebuild. Pay attention!

    IM still hoping to be with you guys an gals on the 8th. But I was wondering. I have not installed my mayham rack n pinion mount yet, because of my back an neck problems, I did however replace the stock mounts last spring, Less then 1500 miles ago. Will this be a problem on this trail.
    I do have the GM slider's and the GM UCP and 35'' tires new CV shafts both sides.
    What time will you be meeting at the park on Saturday oct 8

    We usually meet @ R&V about 10am, but it's up to CB. I'm sure he will chime in.

    Steering mount shouldn't be an issue if you take it easy and stay off the rocks.

    10am sounds right to me! ...IF Mu doesn't keep me up the whole night before jawing my ear off around the campfire... :}

    Who's coming? Who needs a bunk? Sound off if you need a bed!
