Spring wheeling trip for the Kansas folks....

Who's interested in a get-together sometime this Spring? The date can be worked so that it fits everyone's schedule.

It would seem that most of us are in the central region of Kansas with a few from the edges.

I was thinking about a weekend of wheeling at Tuttle Creek ORV Park near Randolph, KS. It's free, but there is no camping or night wheeling. We can camp at Tuttle Creek State Park in Manhattan, less than half an hour away.

What do you guys think about doing a 2 night/2 day wheeling/camping trip once the weather breaks sometime in March/April?

If anyone is interested or has another idea, let me know. We can put something together for a Kansas WF Meet/Greet.

If everyone's interested in doing the Tuttle Creek ORV Park, I can give directions and GPS numbers to it from anywhere in the state.

Tuttle Creek ORV Park, if you don't already know, has trails for everyone. There are stock Jeeps out there every weekend. There are full tube-framed, 4-wheel steer buggies out there as well. A little flavor for everyone. There is mud, rocks, trails, hills, creeks, whatever you want. If you're into mud, you'll have to do that without me. Not a big fan of mud, but there's lots to do. The best part is that it's free. No admission charge. Just pack out whatever you pack in and all's good.

Oh, I just remembered, there is a place down in the southeastern corner of Kansas called Kansas Rocks. I haven't been there, but I think Mr. Clifford has. Hopefully he'll chime in to this thread and tell us about it........

That's an option too, if anyone would rather do that. We can vote and come up with a solid plan.

KS rocks is not far off of HWY 54 east about 20mi before the Missouri border. I wasn't impressed from the little bit I seen of it. But that doesn't mean they don't have some better trails that I didn't get to see.

It is about 4 hours to get to it from Wichita.

I'm in for a trip to Tuttle in the spring if I have the jeep back together by the ??? date.

Tuttle does have ample camping but their site services kinda suck. If you head through Randolph to the North there are 2 really good camping sites that usually have tons of drift wood for burning. Only one of the sites has a shower though.

I'd be game for a wheelin trip pending I find another rig in time. I've been all over Tuttle and can help trail guide. I'd rather go to Tuttle over KSRocks. There is more to do and I'm more familiar with where the trails and obstacles are. It may be more of a travel but we could also hit Disney, OK.

Well, there are 2 days in the heat of August that you might get lucky. And then again the following year. But the dates always change. You have to hold your hand just right and wave your foot to please the weather gods. But it can happen.


March is out cause of the Big Meats Run at Disney. April would be good. The end of April usually has nice days with cool night which is good for camping. May... who plans that far ahead??

Alright well... I don't want to wait until April to figure out what date we can all go wheelin. So start posting what weekend works best for you.

I'm open to any weekend in April. The later we wait in the month the better the weather will be for camping. In the past we have always gone the 3rd weekend in April. But this time I think we should go April 23rd-25th. That is Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

I prefer to take off on Thursday and use that as a set up camp day cause you usually get the better spots that way. I like to camp at Fancy Creek State Park.

That date is perfect for me too.

Hustle up. And no excuses. I don't even have a jeep. So if I can find a jeep to wheel by that date then you can find some long arms.

Oh I found them that's not the issue. $$$$ =wifey/kids

I do think my control arm bushings are shot though, need to pull them sometime and check. Also probally wont be doing long arms for a few months. The good ol' AF has me doing classes and a month TDY starting around the 15th of this month. So I wont be doing much until after March or April as far as jeep toys.

You might have seen me around, but probably not in a Jeep. I just bought one here locally and joined the forum recently. I live on the east side at 143rd/Harry and frequent the area between there, Kellogg, Rock, and McConnell AFB.

I had (and still have) a black 2000 F-150 Supercab Sport 4x4:


And now I have my Jeep, easily distinguished by what I consider to be an ugly (spice?) soft top. It will be replaced with something else by next winter:


It is mostly stock for now, but I've got plans to make it a little more trail worthy in the not so distant future. I haven't done any off-roading since I ditched my 72 K5 Blazer back in 2002, but I'm looking forward to getting back into it.
