Ringgold Offroad is having their yearly Jeep Jam and Ride Saturday the 10th and 11th. The get together with monster truck rides and free food along with a RTI ramp and such is Saturday and the ride will be Sunday. Can't tell you where the ride is, it's a secret, you'll have to stop by Saturday to find out. Usually about 75-100 vehicles on these rides, stock to buggies.
