Red face Newbies in West Michigan

Hey all! My boyfriend recently bought a Jeep Wrangler and mentioned wanting to meet others with 4x4's and go trail riding. So here we are! I know fr3db3ar (previous coworker) and he referred us here! I'm not sure if my boyfriend has made a name and registered yet, but I just wondered if anyone could give us some tips of where we could do some "casual" not so bumpy riding this weekend. We'll have my 3 year old son in a car seat and my boyfriend uses his Jeep as a daily driver, so we really don't want to do any damage to the poor thing.

Thanks all!

*heather*

I had respect for you until this last statement. (kidding...Fred's a good guy). Welcome to the site! My wife just signed up here a few nights ago, so she'll be happy to see another Jeepin' female around here.

Muskegon State Game Area is a good place to go if you don’t want anything too rough. The entrance for it is off Austin Rd. near Stonegate Golf course. Take the Freemont exit off of 31 then Sweeter Rd. You may want to wait till the snow melts though. Have fun.

Yep! Like a mile away :D How in the world do you know of Borculo? It consists of a whole whopping FOUR stop signs (and that's only cuz it's a 4-way stop) hehe

Hooray Zeeland! Sometimes my coworkers and I go down to the state land in Hamilton, about a 15 minute drive. Nothing too difficult, but it has been fun in the snow.
