In keeping with our theme of themed crossword puzzles, this month you get another theme. The theme? Trails, ORV areas, and obstacles or things related to trails, ORV areas, and obstacles. Got that? If your favorite trail, ORV area, or obstacle, or the state in which your favorite trail, ORV area, or obstacle is located in is not in this particular puzzle, don't write in to tell us you're canceling your subscription seeing that we clearly don't care about your favorite wheeling spot. It may turn up in another month's game-or maybe we simply couldn't figure out a way to make it interesting in a puzzle. After all, you're doing a crossword in a Jeep magazine, not the Thursday New York Times. And, as always, just a reminder that it's easier to use the clues rather than trying to fill in the squares blindly.
