Being that this is a paid event, should it made a requirement to have f/r lockers then? I thought this was open to vehicle's that meet the requirements set for in the guidelines for the event. So if my vehicle meets these requirements and the run that your leading requires me to have a front locker in my JK then I can't go??? I have to ask, because I might be driving our yuppie jeep.

What? Is this your first event? Most events have runs set up for the stock vehicles all the way to the radical vehicles. Each run is based upon the anticipation of challenging that particular vehicle's capability.

Therefore, maybe we should put you in the pre-school group.

So even though the requirements fit a multitude of different types of vehicles, "from stock to radical", it's okay to have groups that are dedicated to specific vehicle capabilities?

I know if I took our JK out with a bunch of noobies in stockers I'm not going to be pushing it and driving at my full capabilities, therefore not having as much fun. (this is a statement, not something to debate over)

For ex: live2mx drove my backyard in a near stock TJ, where some highly modified ones were getting stuck.

Default glfwd membership

so from what i have read if you dont pay the membership fee 50.00 plus 50.00 for the run than you cant go?

I may sound cheep but 100.00 plus gas and food thats crazy.......Is there any way to go if you are are not a paying member and just a nonpaying member?

I dont want to sound cheep but i just dont have 200-300 hundred to go wheeling for one day....

I would really like to go and meet you guys if there is anyway to go without all the fees can you please let me know thanks..

$5 trail supporter for the event.


Only the driver needs the GLFWDA membership. It's needed to cover insurance for the event. As stated, you can pay only $5 for SnoFari.

Don't forget your $50 per person gets you a meal and a banquet. Not to mention SOMEBODY has to pay for the event permit, banquet room, misc costs, etc. Yes, it's expensive but how often do you do this? Once per year?

Don't get me wrong, I understand things can be too expensive in this economy. Hope you can make it.

Unless you're talking F250 Diesel w/ 50psi in the tires .. then you might have a problem. (Ask me how I know)
I know all about the f350 super duty diesel, broken down, towing out.
