    It's put on by some of the Midwest Jeepthing Club members. They formed the group. They are building the trails at Sayersbrook Bison Ranch. I've been there - they have some decent trails. The only Beef I have with the whole deal is, the owner of the Bison Ranch is charging big dollars to wheel at that park. It costs you like $50 for a weekend of wheeling on normal circumstances, I can't imagine what they will charge for a competition weekend.

    Anyone interested in competing?

    Neil,
    This ranch, what's the terrain like?
    Are these guys typical Jeepers (biased) or are they cool?

    I registered on the site as well. I even gave RoknTJ some sites to check out for hydro assist....been waiting for a response of somekind (flamed or not).

    For the most part, they are pretty cool. I have wheeled with their group several times. Of course, you still have the "Stocker TJ" crowd who eat and sleep Jeep - but you cant blame them, I speak Blazer very well too!

    The ranch is nice and well maintained. The trails are like a golf course, well groomed! I only went on one test run at the Bison ranch, thats when the Battery blew up on the trail. Note: battery blew, because I stalled out my Manual numerous times - that should give you an indication of the "goodness". There were some pretty steep trails but nothing like Hot Springs! I look forward to seeing what they do there. Cant wait to Hammer it on their course! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I think I saw your battery at the top of one of the hill climbs a couple months ago. My buddy and his ScoutII were up there with a friend of ours who is the Treasurer of the club 'Nathan' aka RoknTJ. We only made one of the trails before it got to late. We only saw one difficult obstacle on that trail. It was a very steep hill climb with mud and loose bolders. Nathan's TJ on 40s couldnt make it. Noone else would try /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif. No k5s in the group only heeps. One of my leaf springs had a leaf cracked in 2 spots so i didnt want to risk breaking the rest /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif.

    You might PM theBigdaddyof2, he will be traveling down on Friday. Check their site on the link above. They have directions from St. Louis. Let us know if you will be there, I can get you in for free as a passenger. My passengers get in free. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I looked all through their site before I posted cause I couldn't find any direction or address. I just looked again and still can't find anything.
    Either I'm blind or it's not their. I did just get off work so my eyes may not be working right /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    I'm driving the Queen down so NO TRAILERING ISSUES should arise. Shagz and I plan to camp Fri and Sat nite and wheel Sat and Sun....if I can keep the concrete cruiser patched together, that is.

    This should be a blast watching the Dana 30s, 35s and some Dana 44s explode!!

    Directions (from the MOROC site):
    From St. Louis, MO:
    Take highway 21 south (Tesson Ferry) approximately 60 miles to Potosi.
    You will turn RIGHT onto highway 8 at the Citgo station ( which is best place to gas up before the ranch), and right next to the citgo is a Super 8, the best place to stay there, well besides camping Go through town on highway 8, Just after you get out of town you will cross a bridge, shortly after the bridge, you will turn right onto Highway 185, drive about 1 mile and turn LEFT onto Highway AA, drive for 7 miles, will go down a huge hill then on the crest of the next smaller hill you will see a sign that reads, "Sayers Brook Bison Ranch" (sign is on left) BUT you will need to turn RIGHT! From there, staff will direct you where to go.
