Re: Who\'s From MI and what city?

I'm from Michigan. I'm from Saginaw. Well really technically the tiny town of Hemlock which is a few miles West of Saginaw... /wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif I haven't been to the Silver Lake dunes yet this year... Maybe after my special project dealing with my S truck. Unfortunately that project is not to be discussed until it reaches completion. /wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif

Re: Who\'s From MI and what city?

Hi Tim. Hey have you ever heard of the Bay Area 4-Wheelers 4x4 Club? They are right in your area, great bunch of people. Ever make a trip to the Mounds ORV Park? I live about 5 mins away from there.

Re: Who\'s From MI and what city?

I don't think I recall hearing of that club... I'll have to hook up with 'em for a run or two after I get the tranny rebuilt in "Behemoth" (the 79 'burb)... I'll also have to take a trip to the mounds sometime... I was planning on it but have been having some vehicular difficulties, as well as the financial variety (student, I'm sure about everybody knows how that can be /wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif)... /wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif

Re: Who\'s From MI and what city?

Glad to see more people from the rust belt. I am in Shelby Twp. Just north of Utica. I used to belong to the Delta FourWheelers out of Saginaw. I have been to the Mounds once. Looking at going in the next couple weeks. Going to see what my 91 Trooper will do.

Re: Who\'s From MI and what city?

Ive heard of the delta 4wheelers, i used to belong to the Thumb Area Mud Runners but they are more into mud races as i am more into trailrides and laid back boggin. If anyone ever wants company at the mounds just let me know, hopefully ill have my truck finished up in a few weeks. :)

Re: Who\'s From MI and what city?

I'm originally from Flushing but live in the Fenton area right now (you're just around the corner, Bogger!). Let me know if you guys set up a run somewhere - I've been to the Mounds a bunch of times, but don't really prefer it.

The project truck is almost done, might drive it up north for the 4'th... now if I could only get this pesky transfer case problem figured out.

I like animals. They taste good. /wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif

Re: Who\'s From MI and what city?

Im from the great state of Michigan. Live by Freeland, right in the middle of Midland, Bay City, and Saginaw (the tri-cities).... I go up to Gladwin a lot wheelin. Talked to the Bay Area 4 Wheelers a few times http://www.angelfire.com/mi2/bayarea4x4club/. Last week was my first time at the mounds, but i wasn't driving. Im going down there again on Sunday with a few friends. I beat on an 89 S-10.

Re: Who\'s From MI and what city?

Yep, I'm a Michiganian too!/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif Gotta love being from the "state that looks like a hand with a thingy over it", as it was once described to me./wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif I'm from Middleville, a tiny town about 20 miles south of Grand Rapids on M-37. Currently I am in San Diego, CA with the Marines, but either the end of September or the first week of October I will be back in Michigan after I get out. Not certain exactly where I am going to end up, but I think it will be somewhere around Battle Creek and Kalamazoo because I want to go to Western Michigan's Aviation school./wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

Sometime in the future we should all get together and go play somewhere. I've got a couple of non-computer gifted friends from home who go wheeling all the time.

Oh yeah, Jeff427 is from Michigan, Gladwin he told me./wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

Sounds like fun.
