    Hey MI Tacos,
    EDIT: Some MI Toys are going to get together at R&V in Harrison on Jan. 15-17th for a winter run. The park will only be open to us. Its $20 to get in and there are some mom & pop motels nearby but there will also be free camping available a little bit away too.

    Post up if interested. There may even be a couple semi-celebrity Toys there (I can't say who though!). I will post up the flyer when I get it from my friend putting this together (should be in the next couple of days).

    I know many of you probably have not been to R&V or even heard of it but it is a great offroad park with something for everyone. I have only been there once but I will be heading back soon.I figured R&V to be a good spot because it is fairly centrally located and is a great place to play. Plus they just had 4 Wheel & Offroad's Ultimate Adventure just pay them a visit a while back!

    Here is their website: http://rocksandvalleys.com/index.html

    A couple pics from my trip ther a few weeks ago (the wife didn't take enough!).

    One of the park rangers flipped his XJ coming down this not too long after this pic was taken.

    There are some fun hillclimbs

    A DoubleCab somehow fit through here.

    There are a few mudholes if your heart so desires.

    Looks like a fun place. My truck is still stock though, don't think I could tackle something like that.

    There are several trails for stock-class trucks. I really don't have a lot done to my truck other than coilspacers and 32x11.50 MTs and I tempted several of the "Modified" trails and had no problems.

    Consider it!!

    I usually just go 2 tracking on the tank trails around grayling. Lots of sand some decent size hills, but best of all its free (orv sticker required). My truck is stock so its perfect for me.

    I got a GPS file for a bunch of the trails there someone on Great Lakes 4x4 sent me but I haven't checked them out. I have been there a couple times in the past too. I am not sure on the ORV sticker though because it is federal land. It doesn't matter to me anyway because I have an ORV sticker.

    It is $20 for R&V and it is worth it to me to prevent getting hassled by the DNR or USFS. Don't get me wrong, I love trailriding but the park would provide those that want the more extreme the opportunity.

    Ya you are right most of it is fed land. Some of the two tracks lead you to state land which takes you to the "all vehicle orv trails" so its always good to have an orv sticker. Sorry for the confusion. That r and v sounds interesting though. I took a look at the website. It looks like you could do some serious off roading there. I would have to stick to the stock trails. You should try the trails in the grayling area . I have been going there for years and have never seen dnr. I have seen tanks and hummers when the guard goes up for training. There is also an air range there. You can sit and watch f-16's shoot rounds at targets. Its pretty neat.

    I would be up for this as long as I can afford to get away from these stock tires and add some skids by that time.
