Oct. 9, 2011 Gladwin & St. Helen areas

The weather was fantastic ... 75 deg. / Sunnny Cool

The colors were near peak...

10 Rails, 2 Fiberglass Buggies, 1 Baja..
(AzBaja.com was represented by The Cow Bug) Wink

All types of trails, from hard pack to soft sand and roads from two tracks to paved...

Even had a couple hill climbs....

In other words, something for everyone...

We had a great time... Laughing

Thanks to panadvc30 for the video...

Nice!

So in spite of all the pavement you guys covered between dirt segments, there really ARE some offroad opportunities in Michigan other than Silver Dunes.

You can go up to the "Tip of the Mit" and only cross a few paved roads...

South to North, East to West, and once you cross "The Bridge" into the Upper Penninsula the "Off Roading is fabulous in The Great Lake State... Exclamation


This was a "Color Tour" so we did do some hi-ways... Apx. ten hours, (less a couple hours for lunch & breaks :wink:, and also couple breakdowns Crying or Very sad ) Hi-way time was maybe a total of a hour and a half...
So, Six and a half hours off road...

Anyway, there is alot more than just "The Dunes"... Very Happy

I can go across the road and I'm offroading in the Mojave desert, so I'm a bit spoiled.

Yep, and you don't even have to steer around much out in the desert, just go straight... Smile

We have these Big tall things sticking out of the ground, some are so close together that you may or may not be able to make it between them, so we have to steer around them...

Also, we have ... Ahh, how do I explain this one.. Real Big piles of dirt... Some several 100 feet high (some are all sand & some are all rocks) and throw in the Big things sticking out of the ground (Just for more fun)...

Hey its all fun...

Maybe someday, I'd love to get out your way with the Cow Bug and go on a run with you guys..
Laughing Smile Laughing
