    First of all, I know this is early. Midwest folks have shown interest in the past. I'm just making sure no one can complain that I didn't give them enough time.

    When: October 7th thru the 9th.

    Place: Gilbert, MN Iron Range Off Highway Recreation Area

    Headquarters will be the Sherwood Forest Campground

    We made a run last fall around the same time. Colors were spectacular. Day temps were nice and balmy. Nights were very cold. If you have thin skin you may want to consider a hotel, your choice. Additionally, last year they did not have any firewood available at the campground and there was none to be found in town. It was only by a stroke of good luck that we found some. We will make sure there is enough wood to burn.

    Trails range from easy core trails, tight wooded off camber trails, Shelf roads on 500 ft cliffs, Big rocks, bigger rocks, and break you junk rocks :grinpimp:

    We hope to have lots of visitors from surrounding states. There are folks from South Dakota, North Dakota and Wisconsin that are considering making the trek to wheel with us.

    For folks who will be new to the park we will have organized trail rides to make the most of the weekend.

    There is no charge to use ther park However...you must have a MN off Highway Vehicle Permit to use the park. These are available at the park office and cost $38.50. They are good for 3 years. You will have to pass a sound test, but unless you are running straight pipes you shouldn't have a problem passing.


    P.S. Here are some links to threads with pics of the park for you to chew on

    Questions, questions, questions....





    Anyone have sites picked out yet or any of that crap?


    I have not ever been to this campground....


    Where is it located in relation to down town Gilbert, and the Off Highway Vehicle area?


    Are there trails to the campground from the park?


    I just rolled down town to that crappy one-pizza-oven dive to have a beer and some pizza last year before rolling home in the Rig...



    Thanks!


    -Steve

    No sites picked out as of yet. That bar that we had pizza at, go about a block south of there and you are in the camp ground. You can see it from main street. Sherwood forest is connected to the park by a dirt road. Never have to get on pavement. It's maybe 5 min from the campground to the park.

    I'll have to talk to Kelley and see what he thinks the best spot for us will be. I've only been there once.

    Here is a map

    I should also add for the out of town folks:

    There is no charge to use the park, however...

    You must have a MN off highway vehicle permit. The cost of this is $38.50 and can be purchased at the park hq. This permit is good for 3 years. You will have to pass a sound check, but I've never seen anyone fail it.

    What kind of question is that?

    When was the last time I missed an event? OK, I wasn't in the black hills, but that was special circumstances...

    I actually wheel my wagon.

    Simply a little hell there mark.....



    i am aware that you wheel your wagon. i am pretty certain that i remember the essence of clutch on iceman last year, along with the distinct air hiss from the puncture...

    I know you were Steve.

    I'm not that :princess: . I didn't mean to sound offended.

    I'm getting pretty used to that clutch smell.
