SPRINGFLING

Start the season right with some off-roading and camping!  We'll spend all day Saturday traversing the quarries and many backwood trails at Badlands Off Road Park.  Depending on the turn-out there may be several groups to choose from to trail with.  Each group offers different challenges and experience levels.  Afterward, we'll retreat to the campground to host a raffle,share stories, and lend a hand in fixing the days carnage.
Anyone is welcome to join us on the trails!  This is a great opportunity to meet with local Xterra and Nissan owners from all over the mid-west.  All with a common goal to have fun pushing our vehicles for what they were designed to do.  If camping is not your style then there are plenty of hotels available within a reasonable distance from the park.
Dates: April 20-22 2018
Campground: Sycamore Valley Campground

2017 (OFF)ROAD MAP

Listed below are all the events GLX will host or participate in.  These events offer an opportunity for new and veteran members to meet with Xterra and Nissan owners from all over the country.

 

Depending on turn-out, there may be several different groups to choose from, all tailored for specific experience levels.  We will not pressure you into a challenge you are not comfortable with, but do expect some comradery.

 

In the event something breaks (and it does happen), we make an effort to help out and get everyone home safe.  Camping and lodging can vary per event, and if not explicitly listed, we advise checking with the event site to see the available lodging options.

 

We hope you are able to join us for an exciting year of Off-roading events!

FRONT AND REAR RECOVERY POINTS
Most Nissan vehicles come with a front recovery tow hook.  For the rear, we recommend a trailer hitch shackle.
REMOVE MUD FLAPS AND STEP RAILS
We advise to remove all mudflaps and factory side step rails.  They are known to break off and cause more damage.
SPARE TIRE, TOOLS AND PARTS
We recommend if you can to bring a set of tools and spare parts for things that are known to break.
HAVE FUN!
Here are a couple of items we recommend you have in order to have the best experience.
Last but not least, don't forget to have fun!
CB RADIO
Good for communication with everyone on the trail.
