I've been a few times....hard core guys hate it. Friday is the only
day to go in my opinion. First year I went the obstacle course was
not open on Friday. Last time I went it was so that made it better.
Trails are easy but perfect to get the wife, kids or other family
members out for the first time.

When I went you just go the trails and get in line. They have
volunteers showing the way once you get on the trails. It's a
charity event. It's made for newbies and mall crawlers. You
can have a really good time..

(IT'S NOT LIKE HITTING REAL OFF-ROAD PARKS)

I agree Kevin.  It is what it is.  I have gone for the last few years, but I avoid the trails now after having to tow a guy out who broke both front and rear axles on one of the trails.  I like to walk around homebase and check out the vendors and watch the obstacle course.  It's also fun just seeing the various rigs in the parking areas.  It's a reason to take a ride on that Friday.

John, are you going this year?  This sounds like what I would want to do.
I have been thinking about heading up on Friday around lunch time and spend the afternoon there and check out the show and shine, etc.  As long as work doesn't make other plans for me.  ;-)

I figure it will be good to just meet people and talk about Jeeps. My football game isn’t on until 8pm on Saturday so at least I can kill some time playing in the mud.

I'll also be at the show-n-shine Friday night.
Most LCOG Builds are like a fat girl in Yoga Pants, just cause it fits doesn't mean it works...

I’ve been the last three years. I don’t go to wheel. Usually just hang out and check things out. Normally go on Saturday early and leave after a few hours. When you boil it down, it’s poser fest but a good cause.

I have been 3 times, twice with the jeep.  I got a few good deals in the vendor's area last year on some stuff.

Wished they would let us make another trail.  [spectator2]

That was a fun year when we built that trail.

Yeah, that's when I learned the hard way that the stock tie rod for the TJ was not up to the task...


Thanks to the group there, we got it bent back straight enough to re-install and I drove it home.

That was a bad bend and in a terrible place on the trail.

I am planning to take my youngest out Saturday morning this year. I have been taking my oldest there the past two years.


May head up for the show and shine Friday if I have time.

The trick is a full tank of gas.  If not, the gas sloshes in the tank throwing the weight to the front or back making it near impossible to balance.
