High unemployment numbers, high fuel cost, unstable economy, all could point to a smaller turn outs for recreational activities. Well it sure wasn’t the case with the turn out at the 2013 Big Meat Run in Disney, Ok. on the March 16th/ 17th weekend.

It seems like just the other day when I heard of a small little Jeep group forming in and around Yukon and the greater Oklahoma City area.
