The Hummer club is trying a new off-road park for the 2024 season! Leatherwood offroad park in South Eastern Kentucky is a new offroad park that recently opened to the public in 2023. The new park largely sits on the historic Leatherwood coal seam that use to be mined by the Blue Diamond Coal Company. The company moved out of this section around 30 years ago, leaving the coal camp abandoned. Under new ownership, the recently opened offroad park has turned this land into a 4x4 enthusiast’s dream park! It is now Kentucky's largest offroad park featuring 50,000 acres and over 250 miles of trails with plans to develop more in the future. The Park offers something for everyone from beginner to expert level riders with trails ranging from easy to extreme difficulty. The trails vary in length and terrain from rocky and steep inclines too muddy and challenging obstacles. The scenery includes rolling hills, plenty of trees, and a waterfall or two.

All registrants will receive an event shirt, including children. Club members are always allowed to bring guests that are not club members as passengers in their Hummer. For this event, club members will also be allowed to sponsor one guest that is not a club member. They will be permitted to drive their own Hummer or other 4x4 off road vehicle with the club on the trails.

This driver and vehicle must remain in the same trail group as the sponsoring club member who will be responsible for their conduct. This guest(s) and vehicle must follow the same rules as club members. Registration fees for the sponsored guest(s) and vehicle are the same as club members and can be paid on line by the sponsoring member or Wednesday evening at the hotel. Please note: that members can sponsor only one vehicle, driver and family.

Back by popular demand! 

 

In Durango we will be running Northern New Mexico trails like Grim Reaper and Secret! If you haven’t run either of these trails,  you have missed out on some of the best Hummer wheeling there is. Your truck will do things you didn’t know it could! If you have been on these trails, then you probably can’t wait to get to back to them and have another go!   

 

Self-guided trips are also available to some breathtaking high-alpine passes, ghost towns and historic trails near Ouray & Telluride, Colorado.  

 

Some Notable Information:

1.              Driver’s meeting each morning at the departure point (TBA). Be fueled up and have a lunch packed each trail day. Bring extra water and snacks.  Be prepared for long trail days.

2.              Trail communication:  Instead of CB Radios, we will be using FRS radios for this event.  These radios are inexpensive, have similar range and better clarity than CB, and no license is required.  (They are compatible with GMRS radios, for those that have them.)  If you do not have an FRS radio, we will loan you one for the event.

We will spend a good bit of time above 10,000 feet!  A great way to beat the summer heat.  We will be running trails on National Forest & BLM land to the west of Denver.  Exact trails will be determined at the event so we can accommodate everyone.  We have a huge network of trails to choose from with all levels of difficulty. Trails are usually hard dirt with imbedded rock, some loose rock, not much mud but a little rain can change everything.  Most trails are forested, so mild pin-striping is always possible.  

 

Some Notable Information:

1.              Driver’s meeting each morning at the departure point (TBA). Be fueled up and have a lunch packed each trail day. Bring extra water and snacks.  Be prepared for long trail days.

Mechanical support for the trucks will be provided by fellow club members and Mod Mafia. Spare parts are always welcome. 

Registration fees will include a Saturday evening diner and event shirt. All registered, including children, will get the event shirt. AOAA Park Fees are separate and will need to be paid upon entering the park on Friday.

Also bring extra water and plenty of snacks. A lawn chair for lunch/dinner. A CB for communication is required.

Durango 2022

                

Trail days:  September 15th through the 17th.

 

Event coordinator:  Dave Breggin, BlueHummer@earthlink.net

 

Back by popular demand!  This year the Durango event will again be held just before the Moab event.

 

In Durango we will be running Northern New Mexico trails like Grim Reaper and Secret! If you haven’t run either of these trails,  you have missed out on some of the best Hummer wheeling there is. Your truck will do things you didn’t know it could! If you have been on these trails, then you probably can’t wait to get to back to them and have another go!   

 

Self-guided trips are also available to some breathtaking high-alpine passes, ghost towns and historic trails near Ouray & Telluride, Colorado.  

 

Some Notable Information:

?              Driver’s meeting each morning at the departure point (TBA). Be fueled up and have a lunch packed each trail day. Bring extra water and snacks.  Be prepared for long trail days.

?              Trail communication:  Instead of CB Radios, we will be using FRS radios for this event.  These radios are inexpensive, have similar range and better clarity than CB, and no license is required.  (They are compatible with GMRS radios, for those that have them.)  If you do not have an FRS radio, we will loan you one for the event.

?              Be certain that your truck is well maintained and that it is in good operational condition.

Colorado Mountains 2022

 

Come join us for another great 3-day event in the Colorado Mountains.  It will be held on Friday July 15th through Sunday July 17th 2021.  

 

Event coordinator:  Dave Breggin,  BlueHummer@earthlink.net

 

We will spend a good bit of time above 10,000 feet!  A great way to beat the summer heat.  We will be running trails on National Forest & BLM land to the west of Denver.  Exact trails will be determined at the event so we can accommodate everyone.  We have a huge network of trails to choose from with all levels of difficulty. Trails are usually hard dirt with imbedded rock, some loose rock, not much mud but a little rain can change everything.  Most trails are forested, so mild pin-striping is always possible.  

 

Some Notable Information:

?              Driver’s meeting each morning at the departure point (TBA). Be fueled up and have a lunch packed each trail day. Bring extra water and snacks.  Be prepared for long trail days.
