Weekend Wheeling • Nov 14-15-16

A weekend of wheeling and sitting around the campfire.

I'm heading up to Land Cruiser Mountain Park early Friday morning to test some new products, shoot some photos and hopefully have a bit of fun. With Chief Products 'work' out of the way on Friday... Saturday & Sunday are all about getting dirty during the day, and then having a laugh and few beers around the campfire at night.

Feel free to join us for the whole weekend or just one day. There’s no rules. Everyone is welcome to join - customers, friends, curiousity seekers... all we ask is that you have an adventurous spirirt and a few good stories to share around the campfire.

If you're curious, check out the event Newsletter I sent out over the weekend, (Weekend Wheeling).

If you're interested in joining us, let me know you're coming so I have an idea how many will be there.

Land Cruiser Mountain Park
Cowah Falls Camp Area
Nov 14-15-16

Cheers,
Bill

Chief Products
Jimmy (maybe)
JKU Owner (maybe)

Jared + 7yo co-pilot
Dom + 6yo co-pilot (maybe)
Mike (maybe)

Re: Weekend Wheeling • Nov 14-15-16

A few updates on our Weekend Wheeling trip.

If you haven't done a lot of off-roading before, don't be hesitant to come out and join us. We'll be teaching some of the basics of off-roading before we head out Saturday morning, and we'll be giving pointers to anybody who needs it while out on the trails. Plus, all of the more difficult tracks we'll be tackling on the trip, have alternate side tracks that are much easier.

Our professional photographer (Daniel Snare) is a legend and has agreed to shoot photos for everyone that comes along. So if you're looking for some great shots of your 4WD tackling the trails, come on out and join us.

Finally... Depending on how many come out, I'll be whipping up a feast over the campfire for everyone Saturday night.

Cheers,
Bill

Hey,

The Weekend Wheeling trip is getting closer!

I'm putting together final numbers for this trip over the next few days. You're welcome to show up on any of the days, but if I know you're coming I'll include you for the feast on Saturday night.

Cheers,
Bill

Wow... I would have thought there'd be a greater take up. Sounds like a great opportunity to hang out...

Cheers,
