Hello all.

We scoped out the route yesterday. It seems  the colors are going to be very nice for our trip. The route has several vistas that overlook the river.  We will be stopping to enjoy the spectacular views. Bring your cameras and binoculars as there are a lot of birds and animals to see.  

Also we will be stopping for a 10-100 break ( bathroom ) at the Kwik Trip in LaCrescent.

As usual our group will have a Leader and Tail Boss.   No one will get left behind. 

Please have a full tank of gas and be ready to leave Chrysler Winona at 10am on Saturday.

Make sure to bring your GMRS radio.


Fall Color trip

It’s time to once again do a fall color trip. Date is October 9th.  We will be meeting Chrysler Winona with departure at 10 am. 

     Jeeps are encouraged to use their GMRS radio. That way you will keep in contact with the rest of the group. Nice to hear about facts along the way.  If you are not sure what this is, please contact me.

    Plans are to go to Lansing Iowa.

    It is a very scenic drive along the Mississippi River.

    We will be eating lunch in the park  on top of the bluff that overlooks the river.  You may wish to bring a sack lunch or pick up a carry out from any of the vendors in Lansing.

    There is a terrific ice cream shop called  THE SKINNEY DIP  that we will be stopping at for desert.  Yummmmmm

    As always , this is a Family Event.  Kids and pets are encouraged. You are responsible for them.

    Please call Brad with any questions you may have. You can also find our post on Facebook and reply to that with any questions.




Anyone want to do a fall jeep trip to Buena Vista Colorado around the 24th 25th 26th  weekend of September?

They have a Jeep and Bicycle festival that weekend. It’s called 14er Fest.   Named after all of the 14, 000 ft peaks in the area.

Have done this before and is really fun.

Some people are Jeep trail riders and some are bicycle trail riders.

All meet back in town at night for great food, and live entertainment.

Trails around there are fun and that time of the year are bursting with color. Trails are rated 1 to 10. Most difficult being a 10.  We don’t do over a class 5 trail.

Will probably stay a few days longer.  You are free to come and go on your own.

Plan 16 hrs to get there and 16 to get back. 

I prefer to do it in 1 longer day and 1 shorter day.

Let us know be emailing brad or commenting on the Facebook post.


1st Annual Snowdeo

Hello Fellow Jeepers.   Are you getting tired of winter?  Want to have some fun?   We are doing our 1st ever SNOWDEO.  What is that?    Well, you bring your Jeep out to a snowy trail and follow the Jeep in front of you and try to not get stuck.

We will be going on snow covered trails that you never thought you could do.  You will be shown how to get unstuck and help someone else if it happens to them.  There will be plenty of people to help and encourage  you.  Kids and pets welcome.

This is as always a family outing.

Prerequisites are:

Full tank of gas,  something for a noon meal, snacks and beverage.  In addition you must have tow hooks on the front, and tow hooks or a 2 in receiver hitch on the rear.   

Warm clothing, gloves and boots.   

A shovel , and tow strap if you have one. 

Good time to put together a winter survival kit for your vehicle if you haven’t already.

We will be leaving the Chrysler Winona north lot on  Saturday Feb 13th at 10am.   Masks and social distancing will be mandatory. 

Hope to see you there.

Fall Jeep Ride – September 12th

Hello fellow JEEP enthusiasts.  As you have been setting around waiting for this Covid thing to go away,  I feel it would be fun to do a end of summer run.  This will have to be a very strictly enforced get together.   I would envision a ride thru the hills, stopping for pictures along the way.  Mostly paved roads, some minimum maintenance roads, and a small rutted trail. Not too tough for the first timers. You can go around anything you don’t want to try.  This will be a bring your own food and beverage for a distanced picnic. Masks and social distancing  will be mandatory. This is  to make it as safe as possible for everyone. 

It will be fun to see new members Jeeps, and what old members have done to theirs since we had our last ride, many moons ago.

 Hope to see everyone there.
