How much Jeepin\' have you done this year?

I was just thinking of how much I actually got to go Jeepin' this year... was wondering if I was high,low, average for folks on this board....

I counted 20 days of Jeepin so far this year at 11 different places. By days of Jeepin' I mean, days that I spent at least several hours out on the trail...

How 'bout you?
-Mel

Re: How much Jeepin\' have you done this year?

I come in a little bit under that [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] mostly because I moved this year, from a place where I used to go a lot, to where I live now, it is a lot harder to get away to go, and to find people to go with me. I bet I have about 10-13 days of GOOD playing. I will go out and kick around a lot more than that but nothing really serious, just playing in puddels and what not.

Re: How much Jeepin\' have you done this year?

I've gone twice! [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Once when we got half an inch of rain and I went out to a buddies field, and the other time to the Dakota Challenge. Of course my Jeep wasn't running for most of the summer.

I've only made it out about 5-6 times this year Oh well, there's always next year. Our club is possibly planning a trip to Moab next May or so, so that'll count for about 5 next year

Define Jeepin!

If you mean doin' the Jeep thing which includes working on it, I have spent way more time than I should have rebuilding my CJ.

If you mean trail use, see my first response! [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: Define Jeepin!

I went to the 'Cruses Chili Challenge this spring, did a Pro-Rocks here this summer and the Cedar City meet this fall, Avalance Ranch grand opening, about 5 trips to the Rock Garden area and about 10 times out to Choke Cherry ... but usually there was no one there so I dasn't do anything fun and crazy alone.
Not bad, I guess ... but I'm trying to cultivate a few more friends who want to go out on the weekends and try some really hard rock crawling.
That's the only way you get to be a better driver.

Re: How much Jeepin\' have you done this year?

I got out twice this summer. [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
I found a new hobby this summer (Canoe Sailing) that I'll pursue during warmer months, I have the whole Chesapeake bay to play on and no "No Trespassing" signs to worry about. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
I will be chasing snow storms this winter thought, bald tires and all. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
