Paint balls are all food product based. they are just watered down Gummy bears with no flavor. Washes right off in a few washes or right away if you get to it. In Chadville you could mark rigs every time they have to back up or pull line and mark the line pullers too. But a assault attack in the trees would be fun as well. The faster you traverse threw the less paint you get.

this is looking real good for the person thats planing to go to the blessing for the first time and thinking that his rig that he or she has put alot of work and money into is going to get shot up with paints by some person that don't respect other peoples stuff.

Boy howdy!!! Its funny that someone could take us serious about this. OK Back to reality, the blessing is one of the best 4wd drive events in Mi. and if you have not attended you need to schedule this for may.





By the way anyone need some extra paint balls

A group of guys and myself from the Muskegon area are planning to go up for the weekend. We were just talking about it the other day. I haven't been up there before, but can't wait to go this year. My rig should be done...if not it will be close and i might trailer it up there anyways.

there are local campgrounds, and motels. Or you could camp at Twisted Trails, go to the blessing and the park and make a great weekend out of it; camping is free with admission to the park.

Went last year, had a good time. Different Jeep this year, but hope to make it again.


Drove around out in mushroom country south of the event last year, like to do that some more.
