Sorry that I have not been keeping up by posting about this event. I have been busy with work and all.
Well, I am unsure if I'll be able to make this event & my percent rate of going is 50/50.
My jeep is doing well and is ready for wheeling anytime but, with this snow and ice on the roads my tire tends to slip a lot and can be dangerous. My tires have a little over 1/3 tread left and is good for the road and offroading but slips on the snowy & icey roads. The width of my tires are 13.50 and is pretty wide for snow tires. Having wide tires are bad for the winter roads even if my jeep has Detroit True Tracs in the front and the rear and running on 4H. I have to be very careful when I drive on the roads and I have to drive very slowly. I knew having wide tires will be like this on the roads during the winter seasons and I try not to use my jeep during this time. My jeep takes a vacation during the winter and I like to enjoy my jeep during our in-season offroading times.
Again, it's still a 50/50 chance on going but, I would love to go and meet everyone and bring a gift for the kids. But, I also have to think about being safe when I drive.
Zack has informed me that he cannot make it because, he is trying to save some money but, he would love to go ( of couse ).
If I cannot make it. Please be safe on driving and enjoy the Badlands event.
This Toys for Tots event is hosted by the Badlands and I would like our club members to give thanks for making this event possible for the needy children. Enjoy their food that they are going to offer and have fun wheeling.
I would like our club members to make plans (together) on what trails to run as a group or split into small groups. Share your thoughts and work as a team so everyone wheels safe. Also, welcome the new jeepers who will join in and make them feel like family and enjoy our club. I know everyone will work well together and have a blast.
You never know...I may show up and enjoy this event with everyone.
As for now, Plan well, keep warm & Thank You for joining in for the Badlands Toys for Tots event.
