If you are referring to the blessing of the Jeeps in Mesick MI, I would say if you drive on the course that they set up it is well worth it. If you aren't going to do that you can go find trails around the area, i hear they are good. But in any case its still fun to see all the Jeeps in one spot.

The Blessing is well worth the drive. Make a weekend out of it, thats what we do. The course is great, plus Twisted Trials is just down the road and the Manistee Forest is also great fun (If you have a guide).

x2 ...

blessing is like a county fair for jeeps (over 1000 vehicles attend), they also have 3 temp trails, stock, mod, extreme. People line the course to watch,trails,mud bogs, several vendors are there. This year is 10 year anniversary, they are trying for special prizes.

Extreme course is for 38 and up (my recomendation) a 35 may make it. lol (they have cranes & dozers if yer stuck)

All is free with paid Blessing entry (not very much)

Camping at Twisted Trails is very reasonable if not free.

Rocks and Valleys is excellent. 25mi north of Mt Pleasent hwy-127.
Watch there site for special events.

Bundy Hill, approx. 30 miles east of I-69 on US-12. (Take 12 east @ Coldwater exit).



You could hit all four starting out early enough. With arrangements I am sure it could be done.



Thursday - Bundy Hill, Camp at Rocks and Valleys
Friday - Rocks and Valleys, Fri - nite camp, R & V again or head to Twisted Trails ??
Sat. - The Blessing, camp at Twisted Trails sat nite.
Sunday - Twisted Trails.
