How about Drummond Island?
yea drummond would rock, and not be so dumb as the sand, i dont really like to ride in the sand... i dont think it s very good for your jeep, just cuz, well sand doesnt go well with engines, but i know alot of pleaple who dont really have any probeles with it...

drummond sounds fun....

oh yea, and if anyone saw the new JP there is a huge article about GS, and no mention of norht, cuz fuckstick didnt come back to organize it we missed out on some exposure, but its not too late to make a drummond run this year.

Yeah the sand isn't the best for the vehicle. My dad and I ran our 94 zj there and it was pretty fun, but there are just too many people running around. I was up at Drummond a couple years ago with my dads stock wj. That was fun but we obviously had limitations of where we could go (with one vehicle). Some of the locals were telling us about the Jeep Jamborees that go up there every year. Evidently we were up there right after a jamboree. Some of the trails get very muddy as I recall, and the landscape is very cool with the rocks and the lakes and all. I think a get together up there would be great.

well lets get a date (month) in mind to start with. i say early/mid oct.

how bout anyone else?

and i dont think this should be a "lets go on a trail ride" thread, we still havent had the 1st GSN so i think this would be a great spot for it. :thumbsup:

One problem with Drummond is I believe a lot of it is private land. I believe Jeep Jamboree's get permission to wheel on that land also. Do you know if there is public camping on the island? What about somewhere in the UP?

Yeah I have only ridden dirtbikes in the UP. I was about 40 west of Sault St Marie. I think early to mid oct would be best considering weather and the trees are in color at that time. Would this be a Grands only event? Because I have a friend with an xj and we have been talking about going somewhere this fall since we both have got our lifts done this summer.

I think we need to try to get quite a few people to come, so there are a few groups with different ability levels. My friend and I both got our Jeeps last winter and are both :newbie: 's to wheelin.

Also, since you live in Michigan and know what Jeepin is like in our state, what tires do you think I should get for my 3.5 RE? I would love Trxuss MT or BFG MT but an AT is more realistic for me. Thanks, I will be getting these in the next couple weeks so Drummond would be me first time out with lift and tires.

Yeah I agree, I was just curious your thoughts on the subject. My dad is kind of interested in taking my zj and his wj.

well we cant have an offical event there, but i got the owners email address. so im emailing him now.

but what we need to do is just go wheel up there, and bring some stuff.

and lets just get our grand group there.
