Jut, friend request him. His name is Garett Lawton on FB. If you can't get a hold of him that way, give me a shout and Meg will text Sara to get it all set up.

I also got some good videos from the mud portion... will get those on here soon, or if you want, go to Youtube, and search 10-3-10 Memorial Trail Ride, there will be a total of 11 videos, Keep in mind I was working with a knock off of the flip video camera.

The wife took a lot pics, and I will try and get those on here sometime this week.

Thanks again!
Glad to meet you guys

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking us in today and becoming more than friends, but family. And for helping out a Wheelers Family who needed it. I can only hope, that if I'm taken from this world early, people will remember me for everything that I loved to do. As Pat said, "Wheelers are the finest people you'll ever meet." He couldn't have been more correct. I can't wait to wheel with you all again! God Bless!

Anyway I had a great time, and would love to come up and wheel again the future. It was nice to meet everyone finally.

One a side note, I think I left my glasses at the table or maybe they fell out on the grass. If anyone finds them, please let me know!
did someone give you a ride to get oil? I didn't see you again after you asked for a ride???

I didn't see anyone post a link to the online tailgate reports.
Here it is:
www.glfwda.org/tailgate.html
Just fill it out and hit submit.
glfwda will collect the data and show the powers that be
how much economic impact we really have in the communities that we wheel.

Well, I just pulled in from Drummond Island. Hit my first deer on the way up. My bumper has a new look after nailing it at 75mph on US131.Can't believe I was lucky enough that it went under the Jeep instead of over the hood and into the windshield. NONE of the mechanicals were hurt, other than a bent trans cooler. But nothing leaks, so I'm all good.

It was a pleasure to meet all of you I didn't already know! Some GREAT folks. Sorry for the slow start. Next year we'll have to run the route backward so you can all see the rest of the trails I had planned for you. The better stuff was after the mud pits. you'd think after 25 years of this I would realize that I ALWAYS have too much trail planned for the day, lol.

Jeff, thanks for posting up the Tailgate Report link.
PLEASE fill them out! The DNRE doesn't think wheelers spend any money when they go out. I'll bet that store clerk thinks we do!

Sorry I had to bug out right after the run, but I had to get to Drummond. GLFWDA just got the trails up there designated as an ORV Route last year after DNRE Law Enforcement Division wanted to shut them all down to full sized rigs. It took us 2 years of meetings and now someone has given us a HUGE black eye. They drove their 4x4 down an ORV Trail (ORV Trails are for vehicles 50" wide or less, ORV Routes are for ALL vehicles [us]). The damage is extensive and has pissed off a LOT of Islanders against the 4x4 crowd. It will take the Drummond Island Off Road Club thousands of dollars and months of work to try to fix. You'll probably see a more official post about it in a couple of days (after I've had time to catch up on a few things).

I'd like to apologize about the small delay in the afternoon with the angry land owner. He didn't seem to understand the difference between a Certified (Act 51) Road and an uncertified (but still public) Road. All unimproved and most Seasonal Roads are not Certified Roads, but that obviously doesn't make them any less open to the public. I'll be at the Muskegon CRC office at 7:00am tomorrow morning to straighten that business out. I'll post the results of the meeting.

Again, it was a GREAT time running with all of you!


Sincerely,

Pat Brower
Chairman, Land Use Committee, GLFWDA

Pat,
i want to thank you for Sunday, it was a nice run. EVERYONE had a wonderful day! even freak with his broken axle shaft at the mud pit.

i would more so like to thank you and the GLFWDA for everything you do on a day to day basis to help us all continue enjoying what we love to do most, wheel.

thanks again for everything!
