Alright, just joined Greatlakes4x4 today and excited to come out to this event! Myself ('96 XJ) and my buddy ('06 LJ Rubicon) are planning on joining Saturday morning for the day. My rig is street legal but will be coming in on a trailer, therefore my question to the group is where can I drop my truck and trailer for the day?

My cabin is about 1/4 mile from the start point. There should be some space there to drop a couple tow rigs. There is also plenty of space at the meeting point. Its a field. Your welcome to leave it there at your own risk. I can't imagine there would be any trouble but you never know.

Just an idea, but if anyone has a chainsaw, most of these trails are logging trails. There was TONS of dead brush and smaller branches and crap laying around that we could use for some firewood.

I have a small saw I'll bring along ...

They clear cut the woods across from River park campgrounds... Lots of wood there also for the picking.
