Correct. Go Topless Day is not a "wheeling event" per se. If you want to go wheeling for a day then join one of the numerous area clubs that have access to legal wheeling areas. Some of these clubs will have booths at this event.

Go Topless Day is more like a giant car show for Jeeps but with the opportunity to test your rig on the trail. Some of the trails are still to be developed but we expect options ranging from stock friendly up to check yourself afterward.

Spring is in the air and this event is starting to shape up nicely. Very soon I will be posting additional details covering the trail ride options, vendors, raffle, and more. Stay tuned.

The event is now less than two months away so I will provide a brief update.

First, we have recieved several questions about pets. YES, dogs will be allowed provided that they are leased.

We plan to start getting the trails in shape next weekend and I will post some pictures soon.

The list of vendors is growing and we are collecting raffle items. Stay tuned for more information.

Sounds like a good time!

This event is now less than 7 weeks away!!!

We spent a day last weekend working on the trails and cut a new "difficult" trail option. Its pretty steep. We are going to require at least one locker, front/rear tow hooks, and airing down to 15 psi or less. Tire size of 33 or greater is highly recommended. Most of the obstacles have multiple lines with some harder than others. We will have rigs with winches stationed at all of these locations in order to keep things moving along. There will be second trail option for stock rigs and most likely a third trail that will also be suitable for less built rigs. The facility has an (insane) dirt hill climb but its going to be an event-day call.

Here is a picture of the venue taken from atop the hill climb:

Here are some pictures from the difficult trail. As everyone knows, pictures never do a trail justice. Our test guinea pigs were bouncing off the rev limiter to complete some of these climbs and had to winch a couple times. Once we run the trail a few more times and clear off the decaying leaves traction should improve:

These rocks are the "entrance" to the difficult trail. Any rig that cannot make it over will be redirected to the easy trails:

We are building a 30 degree RTI ramp which will be at the event:

This is going to be a day for the record books. Don't miss it!!

Less than two weeks to go!!

Latest additions to the raffle lineup include an 8500 lb Superwinch, a $500 gift certificate from Mickey Thompson, and a $200 gift certificate from Bushwacker.

At the moment we have exactly 20 vendors/clubs/orgs signed up for the event including Clayton Offroad, Crown, All Things Jeep, Endangered Species, Jeepin' Stuff, RC Truck Stop, and more. The area we had originally set aside for vendors is now full but we will make room if any clubs want to jump on board over the next few days.

The team worked for 9 hours Sunday tripling the length of the difficult trail. Alot of time was spent testing and tweaking the obstacles to minimize winching on event day. In the end we still were not able to run a group of locked rigs through without winching once and there are several obstacles that were not crawlable and require momentum. There are a couple new downhill sections that are a little scary. No detail was left uncovered as Tad even brought out his leaf blower to clear the trails!
