Hey guys had to chime in here this cruise was formed over on Cherokee Forum it is becoming and annual thing for us. This will be our second annual cruise to the blessing the reason behind following M37 is that we start in Grand Rapids and head up from there meeting people along the way. It is a give and take to get a group of friends and people with a common interest together. It is the route I and a local offroad group have been taking for years up to the blessing so it's kind of a force of habit now. We tried it out last year and after much planning and number crunching we came up with times that ended up working out perfectly without any flaws or extended wait times. The main reason for having the group from Saginaw not take us 10 was some of the guys rigs weren't very Highway, Expressway friendly, much like mine so we tried to keep it to 55 mph max and make sure everyone got there safe and in one piece. The guys who came from Saginaw had no complaints and said it wasn't that bad of a drive so it worked for us. We leave on Friday and camp at Twisted Trails for the weekend.

(as far as the dumb username it was a horrible idea at a club with a backstabbing friend that got out of hand I need to change it.)

Default Selling Parts?

What are the rules on selling parts this year? Can we sell in the parking lot or will there be "swap meet" space available?

Thanks

Yup cam and I are going, plus some of my buddies from school. Were planning on going to R&V on Friday, Blessing Saturday, and Twisted on Sunday.

And you'll be fine maybe lock the front before hand tho? If you want to wheel with us. And regardless pick up a set of front and rear spare shafts.

But as long as you have spares we'll have a good time!! Should be lots of camping, good food and wheeling

I don't know if I'll have the money for spare shafts... maybe we'll see! Deff not for a front locker. How far is R&V and Twisted from Mesick? Maybe if my co-pilot helps with gas this time maybe I can pick up a locker.

I heard R&V is really good. If it's east, then I might make a plan to go past it on the way up. Might just stay in Houghton Lake on Friday. Don't know yet. But Hopefully gonna be there for the blessing with my buds!
