Default Mounds 11/29

I know there are tons of people heading to the Mounds on Thanksgiving, but that is a major family day for me so it’s out of the question. Does anyone want to go the Sat after?

A few of us are heading up from Monroe to do a day of “low budget” local wheeling. I’m sure it will be fun, and I always like meeting new people.

I'm interested...

This would be my first time there, so maybe a little advice is in order. My Jeep is a 93 ZJ, 4.0 with a ls D35 rear and open D30 front. It has 3 inches of lift and 31" Goodyear MTR's. I've wheeled it in California (Parts of Fordyce Creek and the Eagle's Peak trail, as well as a few other spots out there without any trouble. Does anyone forsee me having any trouble at mounds with my setup?

last time i was there was in 2005. stay out of the mud pits, and stick to the trails and you'll be fine

the mud pits are deep and scary.. people with geo metro's and tractor tires drive through them

So how about having my little club out on this local property some time??? We are very respectful to the land, would pay, and would love to meet some fellow wheelers in our area.
PM if we can get together and head out to this property some weekend??
Later.

OSTC on the 13th too - if you want to go along??

Im not going to be able to go to OSTC right now unless my friend wants to flat bed my jeep like we do when we go to the mounds. Im already 900mi over on my lease (yeah...I know) from going to petoskey/ sleeping bear.

I'll sure PM you whenever we decide to go back to where we were. Last time there were 4-5 trucks, and a whole mess of ATV/ bikes/ 3 wheelers. Probably sometime soon.
