    why don't we try to get something going on?it would be cool to show our brothers and sisters of CK5 some fun video's and pic's.the last place i went north of here was ST.HELEN, some gravel pit or something,the girl who showed me the trail lives up there.when we got to the top of the gravel hill she said turn right, i couldn't see the ground on either side of my truck or the trail to turn onto, so i swallowed my heart and turned(we were up about 50 or 60 ft.). when i saw the trail again i thought this is cool and f**k this at the same time.there has to be more than the junk around here anymore.where are you and do you think it sounds cool? anywhere is cool to me. hell i drove 3 hrs to kalamazoo just for my engine. thanks /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifto /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    I hate to admit to it, but these things usually fail unless we meet at a predisposed location. IE: Silver Lake Sand Dunes (Mears, Michigan) or The Mounds (Mt. Morris, Michigan).

    Dearborn is about a 10.5 hour drive to here (Michigan Tech) and Sterling Heights it's faster to go through Wisconsin and would be like 9 hours. It's four and a half hours across "da yoop".

    If it were to be up here (where GMCLegacy, burbBoy, and myself go to school) then it'd be best if it was late spring so most of the snow has melted but before we get out of school. Most of us Fourwheelers scatter during the summer and only a handful of us stay. I usually stay.

    Otherwise, it's best to have it downstate at one of those other public state-owned land places like The Mounds or Silver Lake. There are other trails like the ones in Mio but I haven't been there in a decade.

    Spring time would be best for our club. I will talk it over at our meeting tomorrow night and see what everyone else thinks.

    The Mounds is open all winter long, its only closed for a month or so in the spring (late march through early aprilish), we need to stay in touch somehow if this is gonna work. I could do the mounds easy, or in June there is always a really good bog in Shiawassee CO. (Cohoctah, MI), do a search for "moonlight stompers" on yahoo.

    What it boils down to is 2 things:
    1)I'm down for a get together, distance from Flint is a big deal though

    2) Anybody in MI got a K10 SWB frame for sale?_

    I'd be in too! I've been wanting to try some trails in the UP. I've also heard Drummond Island can be a cool place. I'm just North of Grand Rapids and usually wheel up around Mesick, but I'm always lookng for new places.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    If it's the one around Rose city then yeah I heard about it. I also avoid it. On big weekends it's a bunch of underage drunk kids causing trouble. The people I know went once and won't go back. Been a few people injured and even killed up there.

    And they wonder why the DNR keeps closing it down /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif.

    Well, it depends on the time of the year. If it is during school time (pre-May) then you'll catch us Fourwheelers here at MTU. If it's during the summer most of us disperse and very few stay up here. I usually stay up here for most of the summer.



    If it's going to be downstate it needs to be someplace public and legal. That's why I suggested the Mounds (pretty much in the middle of the state) or Silver Lake. The dunes are pretty hard on rigs so a helter-skelter rig will fail. It's not only hard on cooling systems and starters but it is hard on anything you don't think sand will be nice to. Unless you drive like a girl and air down to 6psi you'll never be below 2,000rpm on the dunes. Anything you think might be near the end of its service will break out on the dunes. Plus, you have to plan on being there for a few days because if it rains you don't want to go out until after its dried up because if you break through the crust you'll be parked until it does dry out.

    CS,
    Our take on the dunes is just the oppisite.
    Always had less problems on the dunes. That's why my '91 will only see the dunes, much easier on it. And I can't air down to 6psi or keep it to 2,000rpm. Cooling system isn't an issue, if you make the big hill on the 1st or 2nd try /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif. Been out there during the rain as well, just makes you want to stay inside the truck all the time.
