Registration | CottonLand Cruisers

CottonLand Cruisers will host The 14th Annual Southern Cruiser Crawl on October 11th – 14th, 2018, at one of the best ORV parks in the country: Hot Springs ORV Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Over 170 Toyota 4×4’s and other makes attended this event in 2017. Go ahead and register now! Don’t miss out on Cottonland’s awesome drivers bags. We only prepare 175 of these bags loaded with goodies.

CottonLand Cruisers strives to provide an atmosphere with something for everyone. Hot Springs provides clearly marked and well-maintained trails that range in difficulty from moderate to extremely difficult. Facilities include primitive camping sites, RV hook up sites, a large pavilion, shower house, and a general store. Check out the Hot Springs ORV website for more information: Hot Springs ORV Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Hot Springs offers many hotel choices: a great K.O.A. site Hot Springs National Park KOA, and Panther Valley Ranch, which is right down the road from Superlift.

CottonLand team members will be performing a safety inspection on all vehicles registering for the Crawl this year. The safety inspection will follow the TLCA guidelines, so make sure you have a parking brake, fire extinguisher, and have that battery strapped down tight!

This year on Friday and Saturday mornings at 9:30am Cottonland team members will be guiding newbie runs on 1 and 2 rated trails throughout the park. So if you have never been to the Hot Springs ORV or your wife told you not to tear up her 200 series, come on up to the pavilion and get in line at 9:15.

Thursday night Cottonland, with the help from the Arkansas Crawlers will be providing hamburgers, hotdogs, and drinks around 7:00pm. Then after you get your belly full, our good friend Jocko Deal will hit the CottonLand Stage around 8pm. Jocko brought the house down last year on Thursday night with covers from all the bands you love. It will be a night you don’t want to miss.

Friday morning, we will hold a drivers meeting around 9:00 before you hit the trails to go wheel for the day. But plan on being back by 7pm because Cottonland will be providing Bubba’s Catfish for those that register for the event. Then grab a cold drink out of a Cottonland Cooler and give it up for Mike & Grady from the 412 West Band doing an acoustic show. This is the band that rocked last year’s Crawl/ Get ready to hear all those songs you grew up listening to including those your momma didn’t want you to hear! If the band was a little too loud last year this ought to be just the thing that keeps you at the party!

On Saturday, October 13 CottonLand will offer a expedition run leaving around 9:00am for those that want to venture out of the park. Cottonland Cruisers will host a Barbeque dinner at 7:00pm to be followed by the annual CottonLand Raffle. Last year, CottonLand’s Raffle had a total value of over $20000! Keep a big bill or two back because CottonLand Cruisers will come through with a big prizes for our fundraiser. Past beneficiaries of our fundraising efforts have been: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Mission on Wheels, WOMEN ROCK, INC., The Blue Ribbon Coalition, The Wounded Warrior Project, Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital, Mustard Seed of Mississippi, The National Fragile X Foundation, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Special Operations Warrior Foundation, and The Down Syndrome Association of Memphis and the Mid South, and Mississippi Chapter of the Alzheimers Association.

14th Annual Southern Cruiser Crawl Overland Day Trip Registration

Copied and Paste from CLC:

We're pleased to announce an addition to the 2018 Crawl. on Saturday October 13th we will be offering a day trip "Overland" style up to the Ouachita National Forrest. We will leave the park at 9:00 am and will plan on being back ~4:00 pm so we have a few hours incase anything goes wrong to make it back in time for dinner and the raffle.

Plan to be gassed up and ready to go. Pack a lunch/snacks/whatever you need for the day.

Requirements for the day trip:
Toyota vehicles only
Working 4wd
All Terrain tires are strongly suggested (or MT, highway tires may be fine, but we reserve the right to ridicule you).
Street legal - we will be on highways to and from the national forest

Expensive Pants
Fancy Coffee Makers
Roof Top Tents
Overland Trailers
Instagram accounts
YouTube accounts

There is no fee for the Overland Trip and Crawl registration is not required for participation.

Depending on the number of people interested we have two routes in mind. If there's enough people we'll split into groups and organize vehicles based on their capability. One of the routes won't require 4wd and basically anything will be able to do it.

@theBROfessor has graciously jumped in with intel on the local area including GPS tracks in GAIA and will run the lead vehicle for the group as there can be road closures etc. in the forest and he’s spent a lot of time in the area.

We’ll have a variety of Comms options, we’ll prefer GMRS frequencies but will have CB available as well. I’ll be bringing a couple of spare hand held GMRS radios so hopefully we’ll have enough dispersed through the group to stay in contact on the highway.

If you are planning on taking part in the Overland day trip please post below and I will add you to the list. Also list your preference for the planned route or the regular vehicle friendly Winona Auto Tour. This will help us know if we’ll need to split into groups. We’ll do our best to accommodate walk ups etc. I really don’t want to end up with groups of 20 or something because we didn’t know the level of interest.
