NAXJA’s 25th Anniversary of the Jeep Cherokee in Moab, UT

Just wanted to point out that NAXJA is holding the 25th Anniversary of the Jeep Cherokee (XJ) in Moab, Utah next month. The event takes place from October 6th through the 12th. I am planning on heading down there on October 4th and staying through the whole event. During the week there will be a number of trail rides, a show and shine and a big dinner with a raffle.

At the raffle, NAXJA will be giving away a well-built Jeep Cherokee. For more information on the event, check out the event forum on NAXJA located here.

I attended the 20th Anniversary event back in 2003 and had a great time! I’m really looking forward to this one 🙂

Ready for some wheeling

Well, yesterday I made sure my Jeep is ready for my wheeling trip next weekend 🙂

Amanda and I will be leaving Thursday evening after work and heading South to Turkey Bay OHV located in Land Between the Lakes. I’ve never been there before, and have heard good things. We will be doing a little exploring and geocaching before heading back to Shawnee National Forest in Southern Illinois.

I can’t wait to get away for the weekend 😀

Also, I will be towing my new truck for the first time this trip, too.

Wisconsin Wheeling

The Jeep is all loaded up and ready to go. I’m leaving straight from work today and heading up to McCaslin Mountain Campground in northern Wisconsin.

I’m looking forward to some relaxing WI wheeling this weekend. Obviously, expect pictures when I return home sometime on Sunday evening 😉

It’s surprising with how close I live to Wisconsin, that I have never gone wheeling anywhere in the state yet. Fortunately, that should change next month when I attend CarnageFest. Which will be based out of the McCaslin Mountain Campground.

My plan is to drive up Thursday September 20th after work and make it to the campground. Friday I am planning on checking out the pipeline trail that is near the area. Then on Saturday, I’ll be hitting the McCaslin Mountain trail system. Sunday is up in the air right now, either I’ll be on the McCaslin system again, or I might do a little exploring in the Nicolet National Forest before heading home.

If you are interested in coming up for CarnageFest, you can get more information on MidwestXJ’s forum located here.

Almost there

My Jeep is finished up (well, as much as I was going to get done before this trip anyways) and drives pretty well on the highway. All I have left to do is buy a few last minute items for the trip and load up my Jeep tonight.

Leaving tomorrow from work and driving straight through to Denver (or around there) before finally making it to the Sawatch range to begin my expedition.

Can’t wait to leave tomorrow……work is going to drag until then….
