Octoberfest METRO CRAWLER Safari Ride
Time: Saturday, October 23 at 9:30 AM and Sunday, January 2, 2011 at 8:00 AM
Location: Kansas City to Weston, MO
From MetroCrawlers:
WE are looking to get together for the first time as a club to meet and cruise a Safari type event up to Weston, Missouri and perhaps through Weston Bend State Park. The goal is to take in the sights and sounds and grab a bite to eat together as a group. Lets meet at the QT gas station in Platt City, MO at 10:30 a.m., we will roll on into Weston, Weston Bend State Park by 11:15 a.m. First off to grab a bite to eat, talk and discuss what is to come next for the new club and wheel on to Weston Bend State Park and see the sights and socialize. This is a safari event; it’s about sight seeing and socializing and getting to know one another. Safari trips can be outings for ice cream, road trips with a cool view or retracing history in the area. Regardless it is always about socializing and getting to know one another better.

The METRO CRAWLERS JEEP CLUB is focused on fun, family oriented activities for all Jeep owners. We want to give responsible Jeep owners the opportunity to maximize the experience of driving a Jeep, one of most unique vehicles ever made, and share their experiences and knowledge with others. As a group, we agree that driving on and off road does not mix with drugs/alcohol.

We adhere strongly to the principles of TREAD LIGHTLY and as members of this organization accept our role in improving and maintaining the areas we use. Our objective is to foster an atmosphere that ensures the best care of the environment.

We are organized for the purpose of:
Enjoying each others company, providing family oriented recreational activities and improving the knowledge and ability of its members.
Enjoying and protecting natural resources, supporting the Multiple Use Principle as applies to public land.

"You're telling me it's got four wheels, two seats and goes faster than the speed limit? Good, I'm driving."


  1. I read the column hoping for an explanation of the first picture but didn’t see one. Is that Jeep moving or posing? I really couldn’t tell!


    1. Nope, it was stuck there. I’m the guy sitting in the driver’s seat. Wasn’t fast enough on the skinny pedal to drive out of it after I fell into a ~6 foot hole, and it teetered up and stuck the landing on the stinger. That kept me from going over and rolling down another ~40 feet of hill side.

      The trail is called “Widowmaker” at the Tuttle Creek ORV park near Randolph, KS.
