Illinois Meets?

Are there ever any Illinois meet ups? Gotta be some Patriot people around here. Let's get something set up.

There was a meetup at Cliff's in Marseilles last year, possibly another this year.

10-4 sounds fun. I'll keep checking back. I am going to go to the badlands in Indiana soom. My friend goes quite a bit but he has crazy modded keeps. He said the have a lot of mild trails my Patriot could handle. I hear the cliffs is pretty intense? I used to live in Marseilles just down the road from the cliffs. But moved right when it opened.

Haven't been to Badlands or Cliff's yet, but there's folks on the JPATW facebook group that went last year. Next Jeep meets I'm planning on are Keewenaw in mid-late April, followed closely by Jeep the Mac, then Blessing of the Jeeps near Traverse City, the weekend before Mother's Day.

They're out there, but a winter meet at Cliff's isn't likely. However, there is a Chicagoland meet'n'eat at a place called "Giordano's Pizza" in Naperville on February 18th at noon. Bit of a meetup for "mudwestern" Patriot owners.

Sounds good I'll check my schedule. Maybe we could meet up somewhere and meet. Then go over some plans. I'm in Plainfield Illinois, only a short distance from Indiana.

Badlands might not be such a good idea in winter for a Patriot, but if you go anyway, at least bring along some recovery gear, eh? Got some events coming in Central/Northern Michigan starting in April, too, if you guys are interested.

Well I traded my Patriot in. Wanted something trail rated. Got a Renegade Trailhawk. I put the full details on my build page. I still would like to meet up and hit some trails somewhere. After all it's still a Jeep. LOL
