Default West michigan dune meet...?

So to the MI/IN/OH and surrounding members. Silver lake opens April 1st. I was thinking it would be sweet to have a meet up there and hit the dunes. I have yet to take my lifted truck up there since my 6" SL and my 33 STT's. I'm heading up there around the 1st or if others are interested in heading up it could be a different day.

You would have to have a State park pass (year-$24 day-$6) and an ORV sticker ($16.50). Oh yeah, and a dune flag. Those run around $20.

I live in Grand Rapids, and have never been to the dunes yet, and was acutally thinking of taking mine up there. I was just wondering about the park/ORV sticker, and I guess now I need to figure out how/where to mount a flag. I've also never really gone off-roading for fun, and would love to give it a shot, even though my Ranger is stock.

Man I'd love to get in on that action, but it's a little over a 6 hour drive. Maybe if I get some time off work and save up for gas haha.

I used to work at one of the hotels up there, could probably get a nice group rate/discount. It was a pretty good gig, kinda got lifetime fringe benifits! lol

Are girls welcome? Just bought my first Ranger took it for a wild ride in the snow today, but am dying to try out other terrains. By April I should have a few mods done (doubt I'll have a lift by then though.) Let me know if this is strictly a "guy" meet up. (And don't worry I'm not the type to get offended if ya'll just want to hang with the guys, but I would hate to crash if that's the case!)

Thats one of the things I'm wondering about is A) where/how do I make a flag and B) where do I mount it? Mine has the tow hooks on the front. I'd def love to meet some others w/Rangers so I can do a few more things to mine. I don't mind working on mine, but unless I know I can do it, or that someone else can kind of guide me, I usually screw it up lol. Oh well. Just have to bite the bullet at times I guess.

you can just buy the flags up there. I am going to be working on building some mounts for my expedition. It has the same type of tow hooks on the front. After I get it done I can build them and sell them for folks that need em.
