    I’m not sure how I missed this thread until now, but I’m Nate from the Lansing area and this is my Jeep.

    Went up a few weeks ago. It was my first time on Drummond Island and it was awesome. Definitely want to get back up there!

    Well I will be up there from the 4th to the 7th - either will be at county park camping or off in the back country - Drummond is a fun time I believe this is my 12th trip if not more - if anyone goes there this weekend and sees a mojito rubicon (I will also have a power wagon with me) - flag me down.

    If you guys are near the Lansing Area, you should check out the Lansing Area Jeep Club on Facebook. The club is very active and the people are not dicks. There are people off roading all the time, They often throw parties and have get togethers, play cards, and meet once a month for dinner, and once a month for ice cream. They plan trips out of state to Jeep and trips around Michigan. It is a great community to be part of.

    I am going to try to be more active. Just so many other things going on these days that I can never seem to make meetups. And I’ve given up pretty much all of my weekends during hockey season, but I wouldn’t change that for anything:like:

    Everyone I’ve met so far at the club has been great. Ted, we met just this past Sunday @ Ken’s. I hope you’ll see me around more often:beer:

    We did Rocks and Valley on friday. What a great time. We started on the trails about 10 and finished about 7 pm. Bill drove his week old JLUR on the trip. My Jeep stayed home in the garage. These are the pics form the day.

    We are headed back up to Rocks and Valley next Saturday 7/13/19. We are leaving the Lansing area from Bellingers Meat market on US27 just north of St. Johns at 9 am. If you want to join us let me know. We will head back to Lansing around 7 pm or so. Of course you can meet us there and leave when ever you want also.

    Not from Michigan but we vacation in Glen Arbor and are actually here now, although sadly not with my year old Sahara JLU. Love the mitten and can’t wait to head off-road somewhere on the Leelanau peninsula once my daughter is old enough not to need a stroller, Burley, and pack n play!
