Default Jeep Skool / Southington Hunt Club

I did a search and didn't see this on the site... so I thought I would mention it....

Yesterday myself and a few other HUMMER owners went down to NE OH to visit a 1,500 acre property that will be having a grand opening next year for ORV use.... We didn't get to see all of the property, but if you like the OSTC and Drummond, you will like this place. There are trails too tight for my HUMMER, but I know Jeeps would love em, and a rock course, mud, water, hill climbs etc.... All of the water seems to have a nice rock bottom....

I plan on going there to visit several times in 2009 learn the trails. They do have a campsite with power right there. They are building a pavilion and are willing to modify the property to suit "our" needs as users.

Kelly (no not the guy who runs this site) also runs a "training" school for Jeep owners whom are new to wheeling or those who are just looking for a refresher course called Jeep Skool

The place is a Hunt club too, with a range etc, if you get ahold of them and setup a time to visit, and you are on their calender then you are good to go.

Some pictures from yesterday before my camera died....

with a short stop at Mickey D's for the kids dinner.... it was around 4hrs....

They charged us $40 / truck, but I see on their site its $20 for the jeep skool.... so I don't know why the difference, but get ahold of Robocon@JeepSkool.com to setup a trail ride.... He said he also checks out this site.... I don't know what his sn is though....

Its private property.... At this time its not like the mounds, or silver lake where you can just show up and ride.... If you work with Kelly I am sure you could work something out, the property is big, just obviously you likely wouldn't want to be driving around when they are having a shooting class / event....

if you wanted to check the place out, you just need to contact Kelly..... he will let you know whats available.... the weeeknd of the 8th I believe it was, he had like 200 jeeps down there..... So, if you wanted to go in the next few weeks I am sure you could.... I unfourtunately can't make it back down there for a while (due to the hollidays)
