Fee Free Days for 2016

Fees are an important part of managing public lands, as many recreation opportunities, including OHV recreation opportunities, may be lost absent an opportunity to pay for them outside of the federal budget’s appropriations process. However, the Fee-Free program is a way to thank the millions of public lands visitors and to encourage more people to experience the great outdoors.

Tribute Jeep on East Coast Tour

We plan to stop at several places to pay tribute to veterans and their families, war memorials and museums. We will also incorporate visits with motorized recreation enthusiasts, associations and clubs (as per your suggestions), to pay tribute to our access to responsible recreation and freedom!
 
We have a little over a week to make the drive and end up in time for Jeep Beach in Daytona Beach, FL, where the JK will be on display as well.

There is still room for a few select businesses to help sponsor the actual tour from Maine to Florida, and be part of the promotional media. Just drop me a pm if interested.

10 Important Tasks After Driving Off Road

 

1. Air up your tires. Don’t try to drive on pavement with your tires low on pressure. Not only will you have difficulty handling the vehicle, but you risk serious damage to tires and rims. Check your tire pressure the following morning. It can drop 2 to 5 PSI overnight. Remember that you aired up when the tires were hot.
