    Trail-ride at Marietta,OH on May.29-31,2010

    Join us for


    Ludlow 21


    The Southeastern Buckeye 4-Wheelers


    Annual Memorial Weekend Trail Ride


    May 29,30,31 2010



    Register Day of Event


    Registration starts at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday & Sunday, on site (no pre-registration accepted).


    All vehicles MUST be registered prior to participating in the event.


    Registration fee of $50.00 per vehicle includes:


    1 - event t-shirt


    weekend camping (no hook-ups)


    3 days of guided trail-riding



    Cash transactions ONLY will be accepted for registration and purchases.



    Additional t-shirts will be available for purchase after registration has ended.



    Base-camp is at the Little Muskingum Watershed Association Park,


    Located approximately 22 miles northeast of Marietta,Ohio on StateRoute 26.


    Easy access to Park, with plenty of room for large motor-homes and trailers.


    Parking for large motor-homes is usually along the roadside where the ground is firm.



    Due to previous issues, we regret that we must enforce:


    NO quads, NO dogs, and NO firearms allowed at the event.


    This is a family event, so no excessive use of alcohol, or disruptive behavior, is acceptable.



    Drivers meeting each morning at 9:00 a.m at the registration-hut.


    Trail-guides and groups leave shortly thereafter.


    All vehicles are required to have a safety inspection by the Trail-guide before departing for the trails. Vehicles NOT passing the inspection will NOT be allowed to participate until problem(s) is corrected, to prevent avoidable accidents.


    Legal roads are traveled, so all trail-vehicles MUST be road-legal, licensed and insured.



    Continental breakfast usually available by the Little Muskingum Watershed Society (not part of fee)


    Cash donations are accepted for this – your generosity is appreciated!



    CANCELLED : The Fire Station at the town of Dart usually has a dinner Saturday at 5pm (not part of fee)


    Nominal charge for the dinner – pay for it at the Fire Station.



    Thanks!! Hope to see you there!!

    Any chance a Suburban will fit on the trails without too much body damage?

    i can't remember seeing a vehicle w/that much body on the trails down there to say for sure. i've seen full size trucks that have made it through everything well, and some others that have slid into things because of their length.
    most of the trails aren't real difficult and they aren't real tight. if it's slimy then a longer and wider vehicle may slide into things that smaller vehicles go past w/no problems. typically this is on bypasses.
    since norm forgot, make sure u have good towpoints. they will probably be needed if u avoid some bypasses because of body damage fears.

    Sounds promising. I just wouldn't want to bang the truck up too bad, as it's also the family hauler and my wife's DD.

    I've never been on any kind of outing before though, so there would be the newb factor, lol.

    I dont' remember having much issues getting my fulsize Blazer around the trails, especially if you don't mind some of the mudholes and avoid some of the tight bypasses snaking through the trees. I don't know how the Suburban is built, but at least get the okay from the trail guide before dipping into some of the mud holes (because you are avoid the bypasses) because some are very deep and pulling a Sub out may be interesting. I will also warn you that if my Blazer can physically fit through the trail without completing ripping the fenders off I consider it "not that tight".

    Yeah, I might get stuck, hehe. 3/4 ton, 4inch lift, but only some knobby 33's and both open diffs. Although I'm not afraid to use the skinny pedal.
    A weekend trip and camping sounds fun.

    Norm, If I could come down to this ride it would be just one day ( sunday ). Do you have to pay $50.00 dollars for one day if you dont camp. My daughter`s high school grad. is sat. not a real good chance I can come but just in case let me know.
    thanks JEFF

    This event is thru my other club – Southeastern Buckeye 4-Wheelers – changing the price would mean a club meeting with voting, and theres no time for that for this year. Half of the rigs that show are one-day&one-night. The event cost is not based on the number of nights camping, it’s a fixed price thats been that way for over 20 years. The money goes to a great cause though – its for preserving our trails (paying lawyer fees, etc). You could look at it this way - the event is way cheaper than ‘Camp Jeep’, which is $300 ($250 if pre-registered). Sorry!
    -Norm
