Badlands March 21

MIJC_03-22-14_Badlands_Dan_Barding_031A day trip to The Badlands is coming up on March 21st.  Interested?  Planning is underway in the forum.  If you’re new to the club or have never been there, The Badlands is among the closest off-road parks to the Peoria area, and offers trails of all difficulties.  Most of the park is a former rock quarry but it also has lots of wooded trails, sand dunes, water, and mud.  You do need to run with an orange flag at this park (as pictured)… if you don’t have one, Wal-Mart is a lot cheaper than buying it at the park’s shop.

Inspection Form Updated!

Download the newly-revised Inspection Form and take a look at what we’ll be checking on Saturday.  This one concentrates more on drivetrain and under-hood issues and drops some of the less important stuff.  We’ll see you Saturday!

Inspections coming up…

MIJC_03-01-14_Inspections_Jeff_Fitch_009Our annual Inspections event is coming up on March 7th.  Like last year, it will be at Uftring Jeep in North Pekin in their maintenance shop.  Come around 12:30 or so.  This will also be our regular March meeting and lunch will be served.

If you’ve never been to Inspections before and you’re not sure what to expect, download the form and take a look at the kinds of things we’re examining.  There’s basic stuff like whether your lights and horn work, but also secure tow points front and rear and the presence of a first aid kit.  “Failing” inspections won’t keep you from going on an event, but it’s nice to get other eyes on your Jeep, especially if you’ve recently installed some new mods.  You’ve got a couple weeks… get out there in the chill and get your Jeep up to snuff!

It’s about friggin’ time…

CalendarThe MIJC events for 2015 have now been populated into our online calendar on the Schedule page.  Links are there when possible as well as mapped locations.  It’s best to always check the forum before making travel arrangements for any trip.  And as always, if there’s nothing going on, call an audible and create your own trip!
