SAFARI and BLAST!

Come on down to Pittsfield, Illinois for the SAFARI, May 14-16. Check our website for more information and to get registration forms- TRJC.com . Heck, just come and visit our site and check out the trail photos and write-ups. We have a lot of fun, but we do get some work done, too!

While you're at it, check into the BLAST! See Pike County, Illinois at its best! The BLAST! will be Aug.6-8. We'd love to have you!

I joined the club this year, and we will be coming down with the camper for the Safari on the 14th!

This will be our first TRJC event. We are 4 time veterans of Jeep Jamborees, and at the last one, someone recommended i check out the TRJC. I, the wife and the 2 teen kids are all excited about it. We will be camping as usual!

It never ends - but I have a few more key things to do on the rubi....

By the way, what do you do with a trailer if you bring your jeep on one? There is a mention of no trailers near the city building or something like that.

Machine154- That's the first time I've heard of that! Most Jeeps come in on trailers and we have enough room to accomidate them. I think that the motels and campgrounds will accomidate them too.

So you won't think I'm talking out my a**, I've been in the club for five years, serve on the board of directors, and as a trail guide. Since I'm retired, I make every trail builder and event. The latest was a recovery training session, that was another good time!

I am starting to get pumped. I am looking forward to breaking in the new Rubi, but hopefully not "breaking" the new Rubi. I have decided to drive it rather than trailer it. I hope that I am making the right choice. I'll have to behave.

We drive ours everywhere AND tow the camper with it. We are close to each other - see you down there!

Well, I have to say that this was some serious offroading. I thought I would go easy and do a level 2 trail on the first day. Well, the trail was very muddy and tight (JK here) and it turned into a winchfest because even the built rigs were having issues. This is my inspiration to get a bumper and winch since I now can see sooo much more value in it. I came home with a couple minor battle scars: a punctured tire, pulled away fender, and possibly some mirror damage (it crunched as a laid into a tree sideways). I definitely would do it again, but hopefully when it is a little drier. We were supposed to be done at 6P, but we left the woods at 11P and that was after having to take a shortcut on the way out.
