A couple weekends ago me and a few buddies were up wheeling in northern michigan and somehow found our way into a military base on the 2 tracks. This was our first sign that we stumbled into some type of training range and probably should find our way out pretty quickly





We decided to do a quick explore and get out and found some other ranges as well. The ranges were not to exciting so I mostly just took pictures of the signs.


There were a few concrete bunkers and then a round field with a 8-10ft high berm all the way around that was littered with these signs. Anyone want to walk through there?


Then a few more area's



Behind the unexploded ordinance sign there were a lot of really cool old cars that have been shot up. I didnt have my camera with me and only had my cell phone so the quality is pretty crappy






Then on our way back out my buddy ends up burying his truck. Mind you those are 38.5" TSL Boggers and his truck has 8" of lift with Detroit lockers front and rear. The snow was DEEP and soft in that area.



After a few tugs we got him out and we were on our way.

It was an interesting afternoon that is for sure.

that is pretty cool it would be fun to go back there after making friends with some of the military guys and practice on those ranges

Restoration = lots of $ & time thrown at the jeep. I know we all know this but it helps in the process to keep things in perspective.

JimNut,

That guy with the beard in the second photo looks like one of my friends down here in Houston! Seriously, he dresses like that, has glasses and a beard, and even stands like that with his hands in his pockets. If you're buddy's wearing a Triumph or mercury hat, and converse, I'm gonna poop myself out of excitement!

You read it. You can't unread it!

Making friends with the range control guys and getting them to let you go loose on the range sometimes takes an act of god... but if the range is isolated enough and you bring enough doughnuts....

Are those trails people use when using wood cutting permits?
