Gilbert is a fun place to play, I've only been a couple of times. But I mostly do trails too. There are plenty of what ever terrain you want. I'm going skiing at Giants Ridge March 7-9 will probably hit the park on Sunday instead. I'll have to check my calender for Julys C4 the C. Mike

Dang, 17th-20th? 20th is my B-Day, I suppose that would be fun to do on my B-day, but also would suck if I broke something. Grant, how would you camp there? Sleep in the back of the Jeep?

Well, I can say I'm a real jeeper now. Just picked up a '99 Cherokee Classic with 98000 miles on it. Pretty happy, it's the newest vehicle I've ever owned. The most loaded, too. Pretty optioned out, it's got power everything (windows, locks, mirrors, drivers seat), tow package, selec-trac (full time 4wd is nice), the Infinity sound (which I didn't realize until after I bought it and folded down the rear seats), and it's in pretty good shape overall.

Looking forward to this spring. Planning on doing just a 2" BB, some skids, the basic stuff needed for light duty off-road. It's my daily driver so nothing too extreme (yet).

Can't wait to hit the trails and get it dirty with something other than nasty salty snow

good to here standard, only 98,000? dang, thats almost brand new!!

i have a 99 2 door..almost 202k on it..still running strong as ever!

pat, my parents like the looks of the area and the nearby rv parks allow tow behind trailers so they (mostly my mom right now) are considering maybe taking a trip down there. if they wont, i could pull out the rear sets and sleep in my jeep

Registration is $50 per vehicle and that covers the driver plus one passenger.

The following is from crawl4cure.org/rules

"The cost is $250.00 per vehicle which includes a driver & passenger, (we encourage you to bring a passenger to help as a spotter while on the trails).

$50.00 of that $250.00 is a non refundable registration fee that you send in upon registration which reserves your place. The remaining $200.00 represents the minimum amount raised via pledges that you collect with pledge forms. Obviously you're encouraged to collect as many pledges as possible.

Additional passengers cost $20.00 each. There is a maximum of five people total per vehicle. Children under 15 years old may attend for free.

The entry fees gets you into the event, puts your name in the drawing for prizes, and gets you & passengers a dinner on Saturday night at the event headquarters. Each driver will also receive a commemorative Crawl4Cure T-Shirt.

We encourage you to collect as many pledges as possible to raise the $200.00 minimum donation. You can get pledge forms from our downloads page. Donations are tax deductible and go directly to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Minnesota Chapter.

Registration is limited to the first 100 vehicles. Downloaded forms can be mailed in for immediate entry. Vehicles MUST pass a basic safety inspection as described in the vehicle requirements sheet and MUST pass sound inspection performed by the park.

In addition to tech inspection, every vehicle MUST have a Minnesota OHV sticker on the rear license plate. Stickers are $38.50 and are valid for 3 years. Stickers can be purchased at the park."


I found it pretty easy to raise the $200. The first year I around $900 and the 2nd time I was around $750. I hit up family members, friends and the big pledges came from business associates. Sign up now and start raising money and you will have no problem.

The 20th will be an open trail day so if you want to head out early you can.
