I'm planning a get together up in the Iron Range Off road Park. I was thinking June 7th-10th. We will be camping. I know that some others have stayed at a Super 8 in Eveleth. This would be a Thursday-Sunday trip. I'm planning on an early a.m. departure from Mason City, around 8 a.m. I was hoping to take a quick tour Thursday afternoon with two full days of wheeling to follow. We'd leave Gilbert in the early a.m. on Sunday. I'm thinking of camping at Lake Orebegone in Sherwood Campground. I think a few of us from the Mississippi Valley Jeepers are going. I don't know when we'll get our DNR stickers but I was thinking of just doing it when we get up there Thursday. I'll keep you updated.
This is the info on where we will be camping. It sucks you can't bring your own firewood. There is also a Super 8 in Eveleth for those of you who don't want to rough it.
