I would say for us trolls, St. Helen / Cadillac is 'north'........ 55 would be a good dividing line.....

I'm from Edwardsburg, small town on the Indiana state line. If you're willing to make te drive the Jordan river valley is nice. It's about 50mi south of the bridge. It's somewhere around 100,000 achre state park.

I would have to agree, highway 55 is a good dividing line.

I love it that I'm not the only one who uses the word troll to describe people from the lower peninsula. I was born a troll...now I am a part time Yooper for 8 months out of the year.

What do you guys like to ride on?

Street?
Trails?
Beaches?
Silver lake?

Trails are my personal favorite. Narrow, curvy, rough trails. I especially love driving in the fall with all the beautiful color. Night time driving is also fun. I always think that the trees and their shadows from the headlights look awesome when your bouncing around the woods.

My favorite is trail riding, and going to silver lake. But when I can't do that I like to drive it to work and pretty much everywhere. The only place I shy away from is driving it down the highway. Looking under semi fenders when they pass you is kinda scary.

Just to let you all know, a friend of mine has started a facebook group called "Michigan Volkswagen Owners". If anyone want to join look the group up.

I'm dune trash for the most part, it makes stuff easy to keep clean

I like to hit the trails near the Cadillac / Baldwin area (although i hate getting the stuff dirty, it takes forever to clean it right), and being near our cabin, makes it better.

I'm gonna look for that facebook page.....

That's why I like glossy paint on anything that isn't chrome or polished aluminum..

Off Season… A lot of good wax is applied to all…

“IF” the dirt & mud sticks to anything…
Look for a water hole to drive thru to wash it off…

Several times, at the end of a day of playing, people have said to me how come you guys aren’t as dirty as everyone else?

Worst case…. The old garden hose makes short work of clean up…

It’s all part of having fun off road… LOL
