Redbird on the 24TH?

Hey all you jeepers here in Indiana. There are 3 of us so far that would like to make a run down to Redbird on Thursday, the 24TH and would like to make this a little bigger of a run. Nothing too extreme, as none of us three have been there, but for sure test our grit a little Hahahahaha!!!! Would like to head from Indy around 8 or 9 in the morning and meet up with other jeepers alont the way down. Soooooooo...... are you in?

I'm not sure that I can get there that early. I can usually leave early in the afternoon, but have issues taking off in the morning. Just depends on what projects we have going that week.

Definitely want to go in the near future though.

Let me know as soon as you can. We might be able to make it a little later. I will need to get back in town by late afternoon or later though myself, so the earlier the better.

Right on my brother. Would love to get together a run with you sometime. I might have to make this a Sunday run instead if no one is going to be able to make it on Thursday.

Sunday would definitely be better with me that week as long as it wouldn't be too busy. Even if it is, I wouldn't be in any type of rush.

Well, Let's do it. Sunday the 27TH it is and we can try to leave Indy about 9:00AM and head on down.

How about you ds1948? Can you make the 27TH instead?

We need to find some other Jeepers to go too!!!

Well I might be in for the 27th, I'll have to see. That's like 175 miles from me in NWI. Do I need a flag for this park?

I don't think you need a flag, but I am not sure since I have never been there. We sure would like to have you with us!!!!!

I work that day too so I wouldn't be able to make that trip unless I got the day off which I can look into.. As far as flags at Redbird they are NOT required.. When we went we just used them anyways because we already had them attached.. Badlands requires flags

Brand new LJ Rubicon owner here; I'm definitely interested, if you could put up with a complete neophyte who'll be a little paranoid about wrecking his daily driver.

Heck, I won't even have made my first payment by then. Perfect time to destroy it!

Ooppps...I skipped over the part where this is Thursday. For some reason I was thinking this was on the weekend. I may have some trouble doing this one too, but I will check.

This has, I believe, been moved to Sunday.

We would love to have you along. All of us are pretty new and only one has been to Redbird. We need to find someone with some recovery gear though just in case!!!

Good to know and thanks for letting us know. Yes, Badlands does require a flag, but they have them for sale there.

As far as going, you should try and trade shifts with someone for sure!!!!

I am still looking for everyone to meet up about 9:00AM somewhere to head out of Indy on Sunday the 27TH and convoy to Redbird. This should give us plenty of time to get down there and then and meet up with you at the park by noon. How does this sound?

Should be a blast! Any one know what the price is for redbird if any? Also what type of experience/capabilities does everyone have? Gotta organize the convoy. Usually put more experienced/capable jeeps in the very front and rear, or just rear. Also what type of recovery points does everyone have?

Since it is a State Park, there is a gate fee, but I do not know what it is. Here is a site link for the place though....

Redbird State Riding Area, an Indiana riding?

I know I have a little but not much experience as I used to go running around in 4X4 pick ups on the farm when I was young. Of course, when I was in the Army, I used to run humv's through the tank trails of Ft. Bragg.

I also know that one of us just bought his first Wrangler and has never been off road and never drove anything but small cars on roads. I can not know about the other guy.

I only have 2 hooks on the front of my stock bumper and nothing on my rear.

I don't think anyone is trying to get too reckless, but just get our feet wet a little in trail riding and wheeling.

Sounds good. I can't find any price for redbird, but I am in SRAs all the time down here and have never paid a dime so....who knows. Highly doubt its free though.

Gonna be awesome!

Have another guy from Il. going to join us I think. He is a decked out with all kinds of recovery gear, and has a mean built rig to handle about any trail too. Between you and him we should be ready for about anything.

I come from a sports car world. I have plenty of hours at road courses, but nothing to do with off roading really. All of my previous cars (S2K, WRX, 370Z) were lowered and geared towards high performance. Going to have to train my brain to go slow and strategical now. lol

I have a completely stock JKUR that will barely have 1000 miles on it by then.
