Now that I have actually read the article:

Congratulations and Thank you to Pat and the Great Lakes Four Wheel Drive Association!

This is terrific news and great publicity. To those of you lucky enough to have this resource available and accessible nearby, use it often and use it wisely.

Now...what other reason do I need to cook up as a cover to visit Michigan? We haven't toured the UP since my sister moved to Florida years ago...we could circle the lake on the pretense of visiting my nephew....

Kieth, thanks for the 'better link'!

I don't know why my original link didn't carry over.
When I 'copied', it lead to where your link takes us; but when I 'pasted' (and I didn't double check, obviously lol)
it lead somewhere else entirely.
???

Let me know when you want to come up to Michigan and we'll make sure you see the good stuff.
How many weeks do you want to spend on the trail?

 :D

Doug and Pat,
Thanks for the invite, sounds like fun. I'm gonna check out the calendar and see if I can make it happen.

Doug, the Blue Blazer went bye-bye just last week. I went back to my four door roots, bought a Colorado Crew Cab, 5 cylinder with the off road package. Better gas mileage, better factory locker, little more utility. In the process of adding the skids  and winch to it. Gonna have to get used to a longer wheelbase again. GM and Chevy dealer figured they really needed that leftover 08 off their lot...and arranged the numbers so even I couldn't pass it up.
