Don't forget the Blessing Of The Jeeps up in Mesick Mi. on May 1st!!!!!!!!!!! Last year there was over 700 Jeeps!!!!!!!!!! They have an obstacle course and there are great trails nearby in Irons. If you're from the Lansing area, I'd check out the Mounds Off Road park in Mount Morris, it's a pretty sick park with lots of different terrain types and it's like $10 for the day and $15 for the whole weekend.

Mt. Morris is about 1.5 hours north of Lansing, for anyone interested. (I grew up 30 min from Mt. Morris/Flint/Clio area) If you are from Southern Michigan - Bundy Hill Off Road Park in North Adams is a pretty cool place from what I've heard, although I have never been.

I live in Grand Rapids...right next to GVSU downtown campus (across the street from Adobe...mmm, wet burritos ). I don't plan on doing anything crazy to my Cherokee, I just love using it as a daily driver.

Also, my family has a small piece of land. About 22 acres. I have a backhoe and tractor and was thinking of making a small trail that would take us on a ride around the outside of the property. Id do something like mud holes, a log section, I know a guy that has some huge rocks he wants gone that I could put out there. Im just trying to see if there would be any intrest in helping or throwin out ideas. We are also close family friends with a guy that owns an excavating company and he has told me time and time again that he would help make me a trail! So, lemme know guys and Ill see if I cant get something goin for us West MI guys!!!!
