So far so good. I've been a little rough on the body in three weeks of learning how to drive her but it has been an absolute blast. I blew a bead big time on the sunday after the deal and I noticed the hydraulic fluid resivoir(sp) has a pretty good leak after the hump trail this past weekend. After fixing the stub shaft it truly has been a point and shoot rig though. It makes my very poor driving skills look good! Thanks again for building a very stout rig!

Hows the T/A runnin'?

Might wanna x-post this over on MC. I think most MI grand owners are on here but there might be some others in the midwest that don't frequent GL4x4 that are interested.

Hey all, I'm one of the organizers of this little show. We are camping at my place in Midland, then going to the park on Sat., maybe hit some trails on a 100 acre piece of land owned by friends. Most are coming on Fri. to my place and setting up camp. I am bringing in a travel trailer to be a community shower and kitchen. I also have another full size fridge in an out-building for everyones use. We have sponsors who have donated items that we will give away by way of drawings, contests. I do have limited space and need to know who is planning on camping at my place and details like tent or trailer, driving your rig or hauling it in, how many with you....? I've got room for 20 rigs, 20-25 tents(will be less if people bring travel trailers) and space for 4 transports(truck and trailer). Shirts will be printed end of this week and are gonna be $21 each. I'll have proofs tomorrow. Anyone wanting shirts need to PM me with size and how many. I'll post pics of the proofs when I get them. I will also post detailed directions and brick & mortor address later. All rigs are welcome. This is not just for Grands! Please let me know if your coming and all the details. Thanks everyone, I hope to meet alot of like-minded people from near by.

I thought this was at Rocks and Valleys? That's where my camper will be and since I only have one truck to tow both that and the Jeep I don't really want to make a bunch more trips than I need to. Is the plan to end up at R&V Saturday afternoon? If so I might just venture your way Saturday morning with the Jeep (and tow rig) and camp at R&V Saturday night.

Everybody on our end is camping at my place and heading to the park early Sat. Then back to my place. Sixe posted over here and didnt put the details in. All prizes and drawings will be in the evening at my place. You do not have to camp here, but its free to all who want to. R&V never offered us camping even though they are one of our sponsors. Shirts are availible through me and is a pre-order basis. Please dont order unless you are serious to buy as I am putting them on my CC!!! I have to have all the sizes turned in tomorrow by 4:30pm We have enough people buying shirts that the price has gone down to $19 each. XXL & XXXL are $2 more As for bringing a camper and/or tow rig, I need to know ahead of time. please PM me or call me 989-835-1961 evenings are best, but if no answer leave details and # I'll call ya back! Anyone that is showing up at the park and not participating in the party is welcome too. I just need a head count for who is coming here as space is limited!!
