Rocks and Valleys / Wheeling for Ronald

I completed the Michigan Mayhem : Jeep Road Trip the weekend of September 14th, albeit over the course of 4 years, and not 4 days as in the Jp Magazine article!

I got out to Rocks and Valleys Off-Road Park for the annual Wheelin for Ronald event.  Wheelin for Ronald is an annual Jeep run put on by Brian Velkey of Szott M-59 Chrysler Jeep.

Brian’s family benefited from the incredible folks at the Ronald McDonald House when their son was born, and Brian organizes Wheelin for Ronald every year as a way to give back to a tremendously helpful organization.

My day was cut short when I cut a tire, which after careful consideration, was ultimately my fault as I did not heed the warnings that were listed with my JKS Swaybar Quicker Disconnects in securing the sway bar in a safe position!  More on that in another post!

After putting my spare on, I took a lunch break.  During the lunch break, there was a raffle of donated items, with all proceeds going to the Ronald McDonald House.

After the lunch break, I was ready to head back to camp, playing it safe as I still had four tires up on my Jeep. with a three hour ride home the next day, however…Brian offered me a ride in his AEV equipped Jeep, so that I could see all 200+ acres that Rocks and Valley’s has to offer.

And I was glad that I took him up on that offer!  After spending the afternoon with Brian, I was ready to head back up to Rocks and Valleys the next weekend!

As you can see, axle articulation in key at Rocks and Valleys!

Rocks and Valleys only allows Jeeps, trucks and side-by-sides, NO bikes or quads, which makes it a GREAT place for Jeeps!

After my weekend at Rocks and Valleys. it has DEFINITELY been added to the annual Michigan Wheelin Trip rotation!
