I haven't been either and just so happens that my job has taken me to Indianapolis which is a little closer to it than New Lenox! So yes I would be in depending on the weekend

that weekend seems best for me. I'm going to the cliffs october 9th with the core group, and the 15th and 16th I'll be looking for a house in myrtle beach. let's see if we can get a bigger group

I'm cheap too. Didn't think about camping. Was going to wheel open to close but camping isn't a bad idea. I'm game for the third or fourth weekend of october.

cliffs is in marseilles. I hear from some they like badlands because of the mixed terrain but I don't know much

i have only been to badlands, but i have gone a few times already (only 100 miles on my jeep). i have been told that badlans is better than cliffs because its larger and has more novice trails than cliffs? dont have any experience at cliffs so back that up though!

I'm in any day in October... I work nights, so I'm down for whenever!!! I traded my Rubicon in for a 300C. There was so much wrong with the Rubicon. Anyways, I traded the 300 in 2 weeks later for a Nitro, I just traded that in for a 2000 sport. LMAO I had to get a jeep!!!

I would love to meet up with you guys.
I live 15 minutes away, and sadly have only been once (when I was younger)
I live 3 minutes away from Summers Camp Ground, I have heard of quite a few people that like the camp there versus the park. Again, I have never been there. But I don't really have a reason to since I live by it and in the woods.
This is my first Jeep, and I would LOVE to take it to the BL.

Anybody else wheel with a manual tranny?

no no, to camp.. instead of staying at the park at badlands. I hear a lot of people prefer that in the summer because the heat just makes the BL campgrounds a dust bowl.

Oh you napervillians....so frugal... Haha kidding. I feel ya. I wouldn't be going if it weren't for me working in Indiana. I drive to Indianapolis every week. Never really knew how bad my gas mileage actually was until the last few weeks! Shits tough on a wallet!
