Looks good.
We will try to make it, Might try talking dad into letting me take the Sonoma. Or do you think the Cherokee is a better idea?
Sonoma like this:

Jeep like this:

Both have good tires, but are..... stock

If you think its not a good idea to take stock vehicles, we will still try to make it if there is a ride through the trails for us.
Sorry for all the questions, Im a noob

Stock would be perfectly fine, but the truck would be more helpful unless you have a small utility trailer for the XJ.

Excellent! I don't know that we have ever had some of the locals out there.

Most of the cleanup takes place outside of the motor sports area. Also, I did get someone from the DNR to tell me that if you're in the Motor Sports area just for the cleanup that they would not require you to have an ORV sticker.

I would not use this advice. If you don't want to put an ORV sticker on your vehicle before going into the MSA, it's your own risk. The rules state you need it.


I had someone from the DNR tell me last year that I was allowed to cut 3/4 of a mile of new route through the woods. After taking down several trees and starting to grade the trail with the mini loader you'd never guess who showed up and was pretty unhappy.

I'm not giving advice, I'm giving information. What you do with this information is up to you.

Wish I'd known about this earlier, could have had 3 vehicles (2 trucks, 1 jeep) and 2 trailers along with some motivated clean-up workers. Got other plans for 5/7, sadly. Next time post up with a bit more warning, eh?
