Ok the next g2g has been set up. We are going to Silver Lake Sand Dunes.
The plan is to camp and ride. I need to know how many people are 100% sure they are going to go as i will try to reserve camping spots next to eachother. people who are not 100% sure will need to find thier own camping. once i find out who is going i will palce reservations (at the state park or Jellystone, cheepest and best rules...). i need to know who is 100% interested... i plan on making reservations on Monday, July 27. So PM me if you have any questions.
This event will be drink, eat, etc on your own. people who are 100% sure and camped together (and those in the same campground) will probably have BBQs and such.
Here is a link for the dunes... DNR - Silver Lake State Park Information (http://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,1607,7-153-10365_15070-34760--,00.html)
I will update this thread as needed
NOTE: please keep the chat out, only post if you are interested.

I'll have to check with others in the family on bringing the quads, but I want to go. I'd like to meet alot of you face to face, as I didn't get to meet many from Michigan at the big TS outlaw event.

07-25-2009, 10:15 PM
Would love to go, but the truck is down. Front end needs a lot of parts. Im sick of replacing wheel bearings with used ones so I am buying new ones, along with brakes, ball joints, seals etc. etc..
Gotta sit this one out. I also think I have a concert to attend lol. Thank chappy for the PM though, I woulda missed it, been busy lately.
07-26-2009, 01:19 PM

07-28-2009, 12:39 AM
reservations have been made for the people that are 100% sure... rates are $30 per nite and we are at Cottonwood Creek Resort (Val-Du-Lakes)
Here is the website Cottonwood Creek RV Resort Near Silver Lake, Michigan (http://www.cottonwoodcreekrvresort.com/)
There is still room for more people in our area let me know if you want to go
07-28-2009, 07:20 AM
sounds sweet.I checked it out and $30 for the family for a night ain't to bad. I see it says that beer has to be in an unmarked container. Guess I need to get a beer cozy.
07-29-2009, 06:14 AM
Well since the reservations have been made maybe I can chit chat now.
I went to the trucks gone wild mud bog I was telling you about and it was sweet.It would have been worth your trip.This big powerstroke was there and I got to talk to him.
Its a 01 f250 or 350 ,can't remember that was wrecked so he got a complete body off an 05 and put it on the frame.The motor is still the completely stock 7.3 probably with pmr's and just a chip.The trans is a completely stock 4r100 an dthe transfer case is stock.The only mod he did to the drive train was a black box gear reduction planetary gear between the tranny and transfer case.2.5 ton rockwells, 4link and tractor tires.I tried like hell to get him to come to the dunes with us but he said he had never been and wasn't sure.Hes from canada but travels all over to big events like trucks gone wild.To see some more vids of the actual bog,go to youtube and search battle creek TGW.I of course do not have high speed so I didn't watch them.

08-02-2009, 12:31 AM
bump... lets see if we can get more people interested...
08-08-2009, 04:32 AM
well I have a buddy and his wife bringing up his big 85 chevy.He supposedly made reservations at the camp ground with us so thats all good.I might need some help with pulling his truck off the dunes if he breaks down again.I had a hell of a time pulling that thing off the dunes last year.It took 2 of us hooked like a train to get him up that long ass upward hill out.He either blows his tranny or the u joints every time he goes.15in lift and 40in boggers.There is not a water hole he won't try so its always entertaining.Also my brother inlaw is suppose to be comming but its not for sure yet.He will bring his jacked up blazer if he does.
08-08-2009, 03:38 PM
sounds good, i got my 20K tow strap and i can bring my winch if needed....
08-09-2009, 04:04 AM
Well he got called into work this morning and worked all day because of the storm so he didn't get the tranny pulled.He has to go back in tomarrow also .He said he don't think he will have time to get it out and rebuilt in time.He is still going just gonna take the quads and probably drive his 99 chevy stocker around.Oh well.
08-09-2009, 08:30 AM
i might also have an extra camping spot i got for my buddy that wasnt sure if he can go... wont know for sure until last min.... but im 90% sure he wont be able to make it so i will have an extra spot for someone...
08-11-2009, 06:40 PM
only a couple of days away......
08-12-2009, 03:37 AM
what time are you planning on getting there?Still can't post on the org. I don't know if we are heading up after the wife gets up or waiting till my buddy gets out of work and heading up.
08-12-2009, 03:38 AM
Is Scott coming?I think thats his name (bigcountry)
08-12-2009, 12:23 PM
i can head up anytime, dont have to work friday, probably will head up sometime in the afternoon... depends if my turbo comes.... got the trans in but killed my turbo.... the 38r should be here today...
08-12-2009, 12:33 PM
scott is not 100% sure if he is comming.... i keep bugging him so who knows..
08-12-2009, 10:15 PM
sweet,forgot about the trans.we'll have plenty of time to discuss all of it Friday so I can get the details.I am hella jealous of the 38r though.My buddy couldn't get in at our camp place because they were booked so he is staying somewhere else.He said all the places were booked.He already payed or he would take your buddys spot. I will have an extra couple peices on the truck and one will get lots of looks from people.You'll see.
08-13-2009, 01:31 PM
cant wait.... leaving tomorrow... hey chappy you have a PM
