I watched someone roll their rig from across the park, not sure if anyone was hurt or not. I also watched someone with a tahoe that was entirely too big make his first attempt at anything challenging that day(a small hill) and he threw his rear driveshaft. I didn't take any pics because it was too fricken cold. My hands were happier in my pockets.

I found this one, kind of gives you an idea of how many people were there. This is only one side of the park.

Yeah, like I said, we went in and parked. I bet Twisted Trails would be fun to go tinker around in, but not with that many people.

The jeep blessing is a completely different vibe. It's a family oriented event, the Dog party has the word party in its name for a reason. The Dog party is also on private land so drinking and driving is not illegal there. The blessing is a totally different thing and its not on private land so theres no drinking or crazy people, just lots of fun wheeling/vendors.

Usually by about 2 a lot of people leave the blessing and head over the Twisted Trails offroad park, which is about 10 miles down the road and do some wheeling there the rest of the day. Th Dog Party is really the only event that is more of a party then a wheeling event. You'll love the blessing man, it's a lot of fun.

Yeah I bet, I'd like to make it up there. The guy I sold my hitch to tonight said he was going up to the blessing as well. He told me it was fun as well.

Well I sold my front fenders today.... Finally. I kept the flares though, so if anyone in the area is looking for a set, let me know.
Also tried the new Budweiser, not bad.

This is exactly right. Comparing the Blessing to the Dog Party is WORSE than apples to oranges

Ill be up to the blessing, then over to Twisted to wheel after. May even stay the night and play on Sunday as well.
