I'm camping at the Tar Hollow Campground, not sure if that's by the lake though!.  I'm in site 090.  I probably won't take up much room, just a pup tent and the 2A.  I was hoping to leave the Grand and trailer some place else if you need a spot to pitch a tent.

'56 DJ3A

'79 CJ7

And two of them actually run!

Bob, I’m hoping it’s mostly Color Tour guys, if not parking lot might get a little busy.

Hi Jordan, I will be driving during the day on Friday.  I have site 89 again and my brother Ron will be camping there.  I also have a room in Chillicothe.  Where I end up will depend on whether Dawn comes along or not.  If Saturday is supposed to be nice she will come and we'll stay in the motel.  If not I'll camp at Tar Hollow.

From the Facebook group I have my normal crew

Me CJ2A
John driving my DJ3A 
Mike-CJ3A
Seth M38A1
James CJ3B


There’s 4 others flatty guys that said they planned to be there. I’ll be double checking those numbers as well. 

My plan is to take pictures/video like I did for 2019, I have 2 buddies coming along, Gio who joined us for 2019 and John who’s the owner of Salt Creek Off-road  in West Jeffereson will be driving the resurrected DJ3A. I’ll be floating around taking pictures. 

The Stickers are in, I ended up with about 75 stickers since the first batch was made too small. So I’ll make sure every Jeep gets at least one of the large stickers and every one else can get the smaller ones. 

James and I may sneak down for a quick run on Friday, so if there’s any one camping all ready there on Friday your more than welcome to join.

Slight change of plans.  With the weather shaping up to be what it is, I'll be flying solo this weekend.  I'll be camped with Ron at Tar Hollow.  We made a top for his jeep last night.  I'm finishing installing a new winch on mine.  We're going to have a good time no matter what!  Who do I contact about moving Friday's weather to Saturday?

Currently - There is a 50% chance it will be clear!

We will probably split into three groups.  
- Waddle's slow hard surface road group touring the local sights
- Two groups heading the dirt roads. 

It is not very often that we have a trip when it actually rains and the Ohio clay turns to slippery mud.   Those rare trips are often the legend makers.  Hours to go one mile.  We will call the ball on the routes based on the weather.   A heavy down pour halfway through a route can change everything. 

(If your Better Half is coming along on this trip -make sure you have rain gear, warm clothes, extra food and water - getting stuck out until late in the evening has happened on other trips.)

Safety First.  Prepare for Rain.  Do a good PM on you old Jeep. 

See everyone at the parking lot below the dam around 0930.  We hope to be rolling by 10:00.

Well said Bob!  I love the 50% chance of it being clear!  The Scout motto is "Be Prepared".

I am planning to travel Friday morning and would like to wheel some in the afternoon.  Ruffy and James - are you still shooting for that?

We had nice weather in the end.  16 Jeeps made the  trip.  There was a tornado the night before that was NW of Tar Hollow and a couple of jeeps from our group had to cancel to cleanup from the tornado.

Here are a few pictures.  This was a great group.  No one got stuck.  No trail break downs.  There were a few slippery climbs.  I was very impressed with the vehicles and the drivers - solid all the way around.

Thanks everyone - It was real pleasure riding with this group!

Next year's Ohio Fall Colors Ride is on October 15, 2021 ( Always the third Saturday in October - meet below the Dam at Tar Hollow.  We roll at 10:00)  Mark your calendars!

We had three Jeeps roll on the paved roads to the local attractions.  I understand that it was a great run.  There were two CJ5s and 1 1941/1942 is GPW.  We are hoping in the future that more of the restored road only Jeeps will show for that trip.

The unmaintained road group ended up being 13 Jeeps (mainly CJ3As and CJ2As- more than half were Cj3As).  James brought his Cj3B and Ruffy brought a 4WD DJ and a Cj2a. 

Good trip.
