hmmm.......... thought it was going to be closer to end of Feb/ start of March. Now you have it the week before Easter. Lots of folks going out of town over Easter. May be a problem for us too.

Jim Here is the problem we have...

Thanks for the clarifiction.

My delima now is that I will be in Tellic the week of Easter. To do a 3 day weekend the week before might be tuff. So, I am not sure I can commit to being a tail gunner like I promised.

I also don't want to risk breaking right before an out of town trip with no time for repairs.

For non-Great Lakes FWDA members, you may attend by adding an additional $15 per family for a special one event membership, it's an insurance thing ... you understand!

Is the price for kids 10-17 the same as adults? I down loaded the flyer and it is blank there now. I need to know before I commit to how many I will bring.

Thanks,

Henry

MiniJ
November 27th, 2007, 01:21 PM
Kids 11-17 are $17. Kids 10 and under are Free.

(I think technically the reg form says 10 and under Free, and then 10-17 is $17, but that doesn't work logistically, so I think they meant 11-17)

I was wondering if this is a run that's doable in a stock ZJ? I'm not a rookie driver I've just been out of it for a while.

Thanks,

Tom, it is hard to say if this run is doable in any stock vehicle. During the non snow season the answer is yes, during winter it would depend on the snow level. Which as you know is really hard to predict, heck the weatherman on your tv cant even get it right:lmao:

It generally isnt fair to the rest of a group to have to pull a stock height vehicle through deep snow all day.

Anyone know how much snow is up there right now? We seem to have lost all of ours here in Lansing, but figured up north there had to be a lot yet.

last weekend there was about 3 to 4 inches on the hard packed snowmobile trail. less in the corners though. probably close to a foot if you got off the trail and found virgin snow. gonna be a real tough event this year! bring your heavy right foot and alot of tow straps!
have fun yall, be safe. wish i was there with ya.

Well, you're gonna have a blast. I live 10mi north of W Branch and work in town. In fact I'll be at work as you are all going pass my door this weekend :banghead: Snowed last night. Not tons, but good, heavy, dense snow. Around 8-10" on ground but BIG drifts. Bring straps and a "they'll never take me alive" attitude. Should be PERFECT conditions. Expecting 30deg here tommorow and as long as your trip up North TO W Branch is safe, you'll have a blast. Just wish I could be with all of you. Be safe and keep on the skinny pedal!!! :woot:
