solscooter solscooter I'm down for sure. I need to start learning. I just joined the Minnesota Off-Road Association. It's depressing how little or no ORV/overlanding trails there are. Here is a trail map from the magazine. I have heard about Spider Lake Trails which are the closest to the cities. For some reason Spider Lake isn't on the trail map. I'm praying the Border to Border trail will be completed.

Nice! I'm learning but pretty much useless. We'll figure it out. And there's always road trip possibilities! Welcome to the area!

Well have to see about a mid way meet up
Definitely in for a meet up. I wouldn't mind driving up for some trails if there are any. I know we don't have any where to go out here.

I don't know of any trails south of the Twin Cities, they are all far north. Cabelas in Owatonna could be good. At least you guys coming from Iowa or farther away could also use the trip to stop in there (I'm assuming we all like places like Cabelas?) Otherwise in Lakeville there is Venture Overland Company. I know nothing about it but have wanted to check it out... My summer schedule is a little crazy. I think it will come down to throwing out some dates and seeing what sticks. I can for sure say Wed - Fri is a no go. I could do (if available) every other sat in the afternoon/evening. Best days for me are Sun and Mon which I realize are no good for most... Anyway I definitely willing to meet up it will just depend on the day. We should all be patient with each other's schedules... We are all we have in the area! Lol...

FYI solscooter solscooter I pick up the truck today from 4 Wheel Parts.. I got the suspension lift installed!

I didn't see it. Mine is basic, bilstein 5100 kit from Headstrong Offroad. Comes with OME heavy leaf pack and light racing UCAs. I took Tyler's advice and went with his suggested kit.
