New XK = New Adventures

Me and the wife finally got to my summer vacation. Ended up roadtripping around all of Lake Michigan. Thought I'd share some pics


Day 1: Silver Lake S.P. Sand Dunes - insanely fun!




This was an intimidating hill. I'd say about 2-4 stories tall. Scared me away.



Day 3 - Ended up heading up to Mackinaw City then into the U.P. When to Drummond Island on the east side. There were tons of offroading paths throughout the island. Local said they often have Jeep Jamborees there. Needless to say i tried my hand at some:





Thats all the offroading pics I have. After that turn is the distance was the nastiest mud pit ever. It even ate my camera.

After all is said and done, we ended up going thru MI, WI, MN, IL, IN, and finally back to OH. The jeep handled as well offroad as it did on the streets of Chicago.

...now if I can only get all that d#mn sand out of Jeep...

Yeah they have a Jeep Jamboree event up there. It's listed on the Jamboree site. GPintheMitten and a few others have expressed an interest in going to Silver Lake. I wouldn't mind going, it is just finding the time.

I would be all up for that. It would be an awesome place to have a meet. I'm definitely going to be going up there b/f the end of the season.

EDIT:
I completely forgot. There's a guy that runs a Jeep Outfitters store up a Silver Lake that does trail adventures. Thought I'd put it out there if anyone's interested.
