Edit 2 - Due to the continued situation, WATVA, RL4WD, WC4WD and others agreed to move the meeting to April of 2021 so that the local land managers, DNR, Tourism, and Lawmakers can attend. By this time, vaccines will be out and state and federal officials will be allowed to come. 


Edit 1 - Due to the Coronavirus, our annual meeting in Stevens Point has been moved from April to Dec 4th-6th. 


 


Below is the outdated info from the physical meeting. 


 https://www.eventbrite.com/e/89638299567/ Our annual meeting will be at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Convention Center in Stevens Point, WI. It will be part of the first-ever joint motorsports convention of Wisconsin where we as a motorized community can work together to build relationships, trails, and networking. 


The event details are still forming, but we'll have vendors in the main halls, the Wisconsin ATV/UTV Association doing their annual meeting, RL4WDA doing our meetings and then some joint workshops and social times. 


We try and provide not only our annual member's meeting & board/finance meetings but also the Trail Guide Ambassador meeting awards banquet and more. 


The idea is to host sessions where all of us can work together on action plans, meet one another, then break out into our respective sessions and meetings.   


Tim from WOHVA and Luana from WI4X4 were also receptive to this idea, but it's not likely they will bring their own meetings to the same place (we do have room for them though). Something like this hasn't been attempted from our side or WATVA before, and we may even see the Wisconsin Off-Highway Motorcycle Assoc. there as well. Here was the 2019 motorized panel we were on, this was the first stage of this concept. https://www.facebook.com/watva/videos/vl.312752236075690/412486859312381. We also had folks from the MN4x4 there, though it was in a different capacity. 


Being able to work together as the 4x4 recreation and as motorized recreation as a whole is something we're going to try at this meeting. 


The location has ample parking, things for the kids to do, local restaurants within walking distance and more. Special room rates will be announced soon, the ink was just signed on the booking yesterday by WATVA. Please mark your calendars for this event and join us in helping build more trails, more clubs, more ambassadors, and keep this growth going the right way. 


We always have folks from the DNR, DOT, Tourism and more, many do presentations in the breakout sessions over the weekend. 


More to come as it develops. If this is a success, we'll make this a yearly meeting for the upper midwest.

Saturday May 1 come out for a meet and greet at our newest business sponsor Beadlockers. Check out each other’s rigs, Trail Ambassadors conduct inspections, and if your rig needs something prior to this years riding season pick it up in store or have it ordered for you in time for hitting the trails. Leadership is in the process of figuring out an annual rig inspection procedure so once your rig is inspected at this event you will not need to be inspected at every event all summer. Just sign waivers, air down, quick driver meeting and spend more time on the trails.

Camp Sinawa spring work day where we will each bring as many pressure treated 4x4 8 foot sign posts as we can. Crowd funding these materials is the most cost effective way to get our signs up. Everyone please donate one, two, or a few. Posts cost around $15 each. 

It has also been talked about saving the shed. I’m not sure what it needs (roof? Walls?) but we will further discuss in the comments. 

The rest of us will spend the day cleaning up and evaluating trails. Bring boots, gloves, loppers, trimmers, chainsaws, or any other outside yard type tools that could help. Atv/UTV, compact tractors, and other equipment to make the job easier is all welcome. 

GMRS and HAM radios to communicate.

The Lake Michigan Overlanding Tour is an attempt to make it entirely around Lake Michigan through this week-long excursion. We'll be confirming the route for our Overlanding mapping section of the website. 

This route will go through WI, UP MI, Lower MI, IN, and IL. 

We'll be playing for a day at Silverlake Sand Dunes. 

We'll be stopping at some of the most historic landmarks around the lake including lighthouses. 

This trip attempts to stay off the pavement and under 60mph at all times. 

You will need a High-Power GMRS or 2m/70cm Ham Radio for this trip. Ham radio is preferred. APRS is preferred. 

Your rig will need to be in excellent working order to minimize the chance of breakdowns. It must be stable at 60mph. 

There will be a lot of gravel and dirt roads. You will need to bring an extra air filter along or a good cleaning kit. 

We will be wilderness tent/camper camping or staying at campgrounds. Campers must be 4x4 capable and low profile. 

You will need a functional winch, recovery gear, fire extinguisher, and good first aid kit. It's recommended to take the basic first aid and cpr course. 

It is highly recommended to get an alignment on your rig prior to the trip, have fresh oil, top off fluids, and bring extra oil, gear oil, brake fluid, radiator fluid, and radiator stop leak along with light oil like WD-40. 

You will need a tire repair kit, tools, and a good jack that allows you to change your own tires. You will need a functional spare tire that is of equal wear to your rolling tires. This is so if you need to replace your tire, it rolls at the same speed of your other tires, this avoids drivetrain damage. 

We will be making stops all along this tour. Be ready to do some "touristy" stuff for a bit of this trip. It won't be too much, but we'll try to let you know what tours we plan on going on as a group. Bring enough money and backup plans if you need a tow, locksmith, a driveshaft breaks, etc. 

We will be wilderness camping so please bring food and food storage for extended nights. We will hit grocery stores as needed, but please plan on having enough for 2 nights worth of food and water at any given time. Meals are your responsibility and, while we may do communal mealtimes, it's not ok to expect others to cook for you. Sure, we may share food, but don't' expect it. Remember your manners and respect all members of the group. 

We want to stay friends after this trip so keep conversations light-hearted. Stay away from controversial subjects. In this day and age, everyone is butt hurt for everything so just chill and keep it fun! Think of this like one of those scripted reality survival shows. If you're being a tool and fighting with the group, you can be voted off the excursion. It's never come to that because 4x4 peeps are good peeps, but I'm just tossing that out there as this is a very long trip. 

This trip will max out at 15 rigs in order to keep run times smooth. We will try and run at least 2 hours at a crack before resting so this trip may not be suitable for small children or animals. We can't be stopping every ten minutes to pee if we expect to cover this much ground. 

We'll use this event to post updates and have discussions about the trip. Please do not RSVP unless you plan on going the entire route for the entire length of the journey. Please ask questions and such! We'll have the rough draft of the map files for everyone before the end of Winter. Again, we'll try and toss in many points of interest along the way. 

This is the longest excursion I've ever planned and it will be the trip of a lifetime!

Hello everyone. I now have the dates set for my Colorado 2021 trip. The dates will be August 21st - August 28th. There is a total of 3 "vehicle" openings with a total of 6 people. The total for lodging is going to be $335 per person or $670 per couple for the 7 nights. We do plan on trail riding Sunday through Friday. The way the trails are set is thay you can head back to the house early if you would like or if you'd like to not trail ride for the day, there will be plenty of sightseeing to do in the area. We will be staying in Alma, Colorado. Tuesday, pending weather, we plan on doing the Jeep badge of honor trail Holy Cross. If it ends up raining that day, we will do it a different day. The trails will range from easy to difficult. There will be lots of scenery to see and lots of old mining ruins along the trails that we will be checking out along the way. I like to plan my trips with a wide variety of things to do that will suit everybody's likes. The majority of the vacation will be at 9,000 feet in elevation with a bunch of it being over 12,000 feet. I would love to see anyone participate, but the air does get thin up there so I would not recommend it to anybody with breathing issues. I do plan on having a meeting sometime this Spring with everybody that is going so that everybody knows what to expect and can meet each other. There will be a total of five or six vehicles going along. This way we can keep the group moving as some of these trails in the difficult areas can take extra time. If you have any questions, please feel free to message me. I do plan on leaving the Thursday prior to get out there. Check in at the house is 3 p.m. on the 21st and check out is 10 a.m. on the 28th.


 


UPDATED:


Here is the list of trails that we will be doing.  They go from super easy to difficult.  The scenery along all the trails is going to be amazing.  I've personal never been to this area, but it will be my 6th time out to Colorado on the trails.  This is a rough itinerary as Monday and Tuesday's trails will get moved around accordingly if it is going to be raining those days.


 


Saturday: Check in to house after 3pm


Sunday: Wheeler Lake Trail- Difficult, Lower Mt. Bross- Easy


Monday: Webster Pass/Handcart Gulch- Moderate, Red Cone- Difficult


Tuesday: Holy Cross (Jeep badge of Honor trail)


Wednesday: Chalk Mountain- Easy, Mosquito Pass- Moderate, Birdseye Gulch- Difficult


Thursday: North Twin Cone- Difficult, Boreas Pass- Easy, Peak 10 Breckenridge- Moderate


Friday: Weston Pass- Easy, Halfmoon Gulch- Difficult


Saturday: Check out of house 10am


 


They are not crazy extreme trails (well maybe Tuesday) but with the elevation, extreme drop offs and switchbacks I usually equate it to adding 2 levels to a trail rating.  For those that want to ride along on harder days there will be room in vehicles that I know are going already.  Goggle the trails if you'd like and then you can ask away if you have further questions.  I'll gladly answer whatever questions you might have.  I do also plan on bring a air compressor, welder, and a fair amount of tools if you happen to break while wheeling.


 


Thank you, 


Dave Vogel
