Default Drummond Island April 20th and 21st Updated Thread

I made a new thread to clean up the two threads that we currently have going, and to summarize what is going on without having to search through the 10+ pages in the other thread.

Run Details-

Friday: State Trails, One Group

Saturday: Turtle Ridge ORV Park, Split into two seperate groups, running Upper and Lower sections concurrently in case we have issues.

Sunday: Possible run, depending on interest. This would be a smaller run, because I imagine most would be wanting to head out. It would be a difficult run, on a local trail, that would most likely require 35's and lockers. It is a short trail, and we would be done by noon(hopefully ) We will be able to discuss this as we get closer to determine the interest

UPDATE LIST OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE COMMITTED TO GOING:
We will be taking 18 rigs, and so far, 18 have said that they are able to attend. If someone is not able to attend, we will begin with those first on the waiting list

1 -drummond- CJ-5, Locked, 36" Iroks, OBA, Winch, tow points

2 Quietlake- YJ, 33's, locker, winch, tow points

3 Muddypaws- YJ, Locked, 35's, Winch, tow points

4 groundhog-YJ 38.5' welded rear, Detroit front F & R tow points winch

5 sglide-TJ, 34's welded rear locked front tow points

6 Cube- TJ, F & R Lockers, winch, 35" boggers, tow points

7 XJToivo- Cherokee, 35's, winch, tow points

8 ron86toy- 35's locked f/r winch

9 incogrhino- cruiser, 33's locker R, winch

10 a4x4spit

11 Blackjackbender- TJ, 37's, locked, tow points

12 epike7915 - Zuki with 35" Boggers, Locked f&r, tow points

13 Geezer- Zuki with 34" LTB's, mini-spools f&r, winch, tow points

14 tcxtreme1000- 87 yj, 38.5's, locked dana 60 and 44 and a high power unit under the hood

15 nate4d- TJ, 33's, tow points

16 Evil Queen- TJ 35" Swampers

17 landrollover- rover with 33" mt's, rear locker, winch, tow points

18 Mijeeper_CJ_7 35's welded rear, locked front, & winch with plenty of tow points

Requirements: 33's, one locker, and CB Radio for communication



Lodging- Tim has started a thread about getting some rooms at the DI Resort and conference center, and is keeping a list of who is interested. About $27 PP, figuring 3 or so to a room. Total cost of about $79. They are very nice accomidations, at an extremely reasonable price. Trail head is right across the street. Thread- http://www.greatlakes4x4.com/showthr...t=37414&page=2



Maps

Overall Map- Here is the location of Drummond Island. When you get to the island Take M-134 (7.7 miles) to blinking light at 4-way stop (Four Corners). (Shown on Map below) Turn left and go 1.5 miles to next 4-way stop. Turn right onto Maxton Road and follow it 2.9 miles to the resort entrance on your left.



Trail Map- to give some directions to those that have never been to Drummond before. (Credit goes to Steve Walker of the Bear Track Inn for the map, and I modified it to show the run for Friday, the location of the ORV park, and where this all is in relation to the main road.)

Businesses

Let me know if you have anymore questions. I thought that this would just tie all of the information together, to make it easily available all in one thread, instead of sorting through pages of different ones.

make sure you guys take plenty of pictures and video on this trip, my goal is to be able to make a video of the run (hopefully with some help from "King Geek 4x4" )

nice, good to hear look forward to checking it out



i am hoping that we have a good turn out for this run, which I am sure that we will. If there is some reason that you cannot make it, it would be awesome if you could let me or Muddypaws know, so that we can get in contact with the people on the "waiting list" to let them know a spot is available. This should be an awesome time, with awesome wheeling. I cannot wait

sure is. I havent heard from some of the guys in quite some time now. So....

If you are not able to make it, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can make other arrangements with people on the waiting list

The Zuks are still eager! Took a week off this week to tweak them a little.

well, with my luck the moon will fall out of orbit and land on me when I am on my way to the island.

Maybe I should stay in bed.
