    This is a real trail ride, I don't want to offend anyone here but I want everyone to know what Gitchee is about, Its a fairly hard core two track trip that is based is Ontario about 30 min past the Sault. It will be held on logging roads and skidder trails that are 30ish years old, you will encounter scratches, Logs, Mud, rocks, and some of the most scenic land you could ever lay your eyes on! These trail rides typically last 12 hours in the woods plus a 30 minute drive on the highway each way from camp.

    What to bring:
    Spare gas, spare dry clothes, spare food, spare parts, spare vehicle fluids, even a spare oil filter is good to have, Chainsaw, lopers, anything that will help clear a trail if needed! Remember to bring a TEAM attitude,

    Who will do best on this run:
    33s and up, either lockers or a winch, both preferred. Smaller rigs do OK, but be prepared to get pulled often.

    Who will not do so great on this run:
    Members who are looking for hardcore rock crawls, we have a couple that last year blew out windows and broke a few parts. That's not really what this is about. We can accommodate, but, I'm not pushing this run as a super hardcore run.
    Members who are totally stock, if I had enough people interested in Fall Color Tour type of trip for stockers I can accommodate.

    You will need a current passport or enhanced drivers license to get over the bridge, if you are camping it is also a good idea to check with the boarder to see what can and cannot be brought across the bridge.

    and spare lug nuts...

    Indy left out the most important part - you need to bring your sense of adventure. If you are looking for a West Branch-style trail ride you should wait for SnoFari or plan to attend the Trolls Fall Color Tour. The trail system used for GG is fairly rugged and primitive, but very manageable in a nearly stock vehicle. Water crossings? Yup, got that. Ravine crossings? Yup, got that. 40" diameter trees blocking the trail that leads back to camp? Yup, got that. Rock gardens in the dark? Yup, got that too. Pin striping, bumpers modified by trees, scraped skid plates? Yup sometimes a little of that too. But fantastic scenery, good company and good times like this are hard to find.

    Oh and dittos on the lug nuts, after the last two trips up there I now carry a fistful of extras, including several that don't even fit my Jeep. Long drive to the closest Auto Zone!

    Why you guys gotta bring up things like lug nuts? I carry a set of studs and nuts for both front and rear. For some reason, I've seen this happen more than once on the trail.

    Kinda reevaluating our fall plans. Might be making it after all.
