Ohio Commander Owners meet (4/6/2013)

So Ive talked to a few other members on the forums about meeting up one day at one of the only 2 legal offroad areas in ohio: Southington Offroad Park and Yankee Lake. To get to the point I am setting a date for anyone, but not limited to, in Ohio. My plan is to have everyone meet at Southington Offroad Park on Saturday, April 6th. Southington park used to be an old Jeep Skool but was bought out.

The website to the park is: http://www.southingtonoffroad.com/. Any and all information about the park can be located at this url. The difficuly levels here vary from Fully modded 4x4s to stock 4x4s, so there is something for everyone to do. So leave a post or send me a message if you are interested. More information will be posted in the following weeks.

The event is open to any vehicle not just Commanders.

I lived in ohio my whole life but was recently relocated to MI. Sounds like a great time. I am very interested. It's only about a 4 hour drive for me.

I'll probably come to town Friday night with the wife and kids and stay at the inlaw's so it'll be a short trip on Saturday morning.

I'm in! SOR is only 2.5 hours for me.

BTW - Jeepskool was not bought out. Kelly (the manager of the park under Jeepskool) lost his lease on the land. The owner of the property decided to give it a go on his own. So far he has added 3-4 new trails, a new concession / restaurant cabin, and added a 400 yard shooting range. The park is great for stocker vehicles up to highly modified rock buggys. There is also camping and a shower house if you wanted to make it a weekend. Cico7, Tymac, and I have been going since 2009 and it is a blast!

Hmm, 3 hours away. Tempting me, but I'm worried because my Jeep isn't lifted nor do I have any type of recovery method in place (no tow hooks, hitch, etc.)

I would not venture off road without any means of recovery. I believe it is a requirement of the park BTW.

i was/am in the same boat as you. i dont have a lift on my jeep but i have decent a/t tires. i purchased a tow hook for my hitch receiver and a recovery strap; both for under 150$. and im sure ill have other items by april. so you still have time to atleast buy a rear hook and strap. let me know if you want the link to the site that i bought mine from.
