Mol, if I was not in Branson that weekend, I would be there!

Mol 07-15-2013 02:20 PM

Pfft, what's in branson that's more important than an afternoon with yours truly?! :D

We may be putting together a wheeling trip for Sunday...I'll keep y'all posted on that, if making a weekend of it sounds better to anyone.

Were likely organizing a wheeling day for Sunday...I'll know soon enough and update, for those that would consider making a weekend of it.

Edit - I already said where's my head at :laugh:

We will be organizing a trail ride for Sunday, I'm working on the details. If it pans out the way I'm hoping, novice riders will be welcome, but it will likely be intermediate to advanced trails.

Updates to come :)

I drive by the shop twice a day on my way to and from work. Thanks for the early heads up to make plans to come.

I'm interested in the trail ride, but this would be my first so intermediate to advanced would be out of my league. Sounds cool though. :thumbsup:

Sounds great!

Check out membership is $35, if I recall, and they host a monthly trail ride, with several "novice" rides per year. Great way to get involved even if you're in a bone stock Jeep. They're a good group of guys.

Stop in and say hello! If the red JK or the green or black TJs are out front, there's someone inside.

Times edited - We wouldn't have had enough to fit all of the fun in
