**It's that time of year again to wheel with the Trolls and look at the leaves turning color**

**Saturday, October 13**

We roll at 10 AM, so be there by 9:30.

This year we are starting at the Dam Site Inn located in Pellston Mi. We wiil be splitting into two groups and running two trails. Each group will run both trails, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, so you will get to run each trail. Lunch will also be at the Dam SIte. No, not chicken, hot dogs.

GLFWDA quarterly meeting is at the same location on Sunday.

First post, i made my way over from GL4x4. Just sold my trail rig a month or so back, but still have my dodge 2500 extended cab lifted with 37's. Paint has plenty of stratches already, so no worrys there. Any other problems on the trails, I live in Gaylord just never wheeled up that way. Thanks and looking forward to this. Matt

I made a fresh post on GL4X4 so people quit using a two year old thread.

Just show up. But if you know you'll be there,let us know because it'll help us know how many hot dogs to buy. No charge for the hot dogs. We are even getting free pop from Pellston General store. (Thanks Mrs Bluejay)

I thought all they served at the DSI was GREAT food!
That is all I have ever had when I have visited at the DSI.

Hope to make it, but still TBD. ... waiting on parts

Parts arrived, repairs made, back to Ohio on schedule.
Color Tour has been replaced by grandaughter B-day party, sometimes Family first gets in the way.
Have a SAFE and FUN tour, someone can eat my hot dog ... I am full of lobster!
THANKS Trolls for continuing this EVENT!!

just did my first group event. Dirt Packers color tour in St. Helens this weekend. Very fun. Now i am looking for another and this looks great. Do you have any more details like a trail map? level of difficulty? I am new to this hobby, with a 2012 Wrangler. Where do we meet exactly? I am not seeing that on these posts as far as details. Thanks for any help.

well couldn't make it this year either. sounds like everybody had a good time which is cool. wife is out of town this weekend and my youngest was going to homecoming, so I had to hold down the fort. on the plus side I upgraded my springs and shocks (with only minimal blood loss). :)
