Possible Spring trip to the badlands. What date is good for you?

I would like to get everyones input on a good date to go to the badlands in late march early april. List the weekends that would work best for you. I am trying to give everyone plenty of notice so theres a good turn out.

The badlands are in attica IN. It is one of the best offroad parks around here. It is worth a drive.

I was thinking saturday march 20th 2010. If we pick this date I want it to be for sure no matter the weather. I guess if worse comes to worse it will be a day of mud. I hope it will be dry so we can do it all in one day but I guess well have to wait and see. Anyone else have any thoughts on this date? Also anyone have any other dates they would like better?

A couple branch marks will make that thing look sweet. Then a couple rock scrapes on the bottom and your golden!

The exact days I'll be there will be:

Arriving in Attica Thursday afternoon 4/8/10
Wheeling Friday (Good Friday) 4/9/10

After wheeling friday will then be traveling up to Wisconsin to visit family & friends, if anyone wants to convoy back to the CHI-town area.

Hmm maybe if the weather is ok and I have the parts on the little tj and I can convince the family to let me sneek out on good friday. I may try to make it. If not the 20th for sure. I wouldn't mind doing both.
