**UPDATED** November 27th, last weekend at McLean!
« on: October 26, 2021, 09:07:11 PM »
Let’s meet for 9am at the store. If the store parking lot is closed, like it usually is at this time of year, we can meet at the pond parking lot. Drive past the store, stay on the asphalt road that curves past the store to the right. The first left hand turn just past the cattle guard will be the pond parking lot. There will be plenty of room for a of us to gather and outhouses that might be open.

Dress for any weather that could arrive. Extra Food, clothes and water too. It could be a long day and it gets dark early.



Mark your calendar! November 27th is the last Saturday before McLean creek closes for the winter.
Come on out for a fun day on some trails!
Details will be posted closer to that weekend.

I’m in.

So, since I don’t have lockers in the xj, are chains pretty much a must.

And, in the winter I run blizzaks cause I got them free and 4x4 with winters is amazing. But for snow wheeling (without chains) would you go blizzaks or bfg mud terrain T/A KMs?

I wouldn’t use blizzaks for off-roading, maybe light trails. Especially the trails in McLean. Keep your current tires for Offroad and maybe use a pair of chains with them. Depending how the snow situation is out there. May not need them that weekend but once the snow really starts to fly they will be good to have in waiperous.

If my parts are in/installed by then I think it would be a good shakedown for Greyjeep v2.0.

Don't think I'm going to make the deadline though.

Will this be an easy run for a newbie who is driving 2012 Sahara on winter tires (everything is stock). Also , not planning to get any body damage as it will be my first run. Is this normally an easy run?

Wellllll…. The plan is to do fisher East. Usually a crap show. May not be great for a newbie. Some good runs to waiperous will be coming up soon as well. Much better for newbies:)
