cavediverjc Lol......I go visit them every other year while they come here every other year so we get to see each other every year for a couple of weeks. My family trust owns a castle in Scotland (ruins now, actually) and the city where we're from is named after us. Check it out online. My last name is Cousland. The village is outside of Edinburgh. Pretty little village. (REALLY small. Like 300 people or so....)

I'm all for heading to Disney, but Memorial Weekend is out for me. I've got family coming in from Scotland that whole last week of May and the first week of June.

Disney, OK. Mapquest it.
04-22-2010 09:25 PM
cavediverjc Tuttle Creek ORV Park is situated right next to the lake. It's mostly a low-lying area that seems to be pretty susceptible to low-level flooding. If mud is your thing, it's great after a rain. I'm not a big fan of mud personally, so I'll wait for a Disney trip where we can focus on the rocks. Tuttle has rocks too, but all in all it's a pretty messy place after a rain.

distortedtj Disney= mmmm

I'm game...I'll have the axles and other stuff in by then.
04-22-2010 07:13 PM
Onion22 well... who is going? I'm still down for going up there I already got off work 2moro... but I guess I could go in anyway... I know I need the money after buying new tires.

Idk if I really wanna go out and drive for 2hrs to play in mud... but I do need to get my jeep off the pavement sometime.
04-22-2010 06:27 PM
Storm27m Well damn, it's starting to sound like I drove up here for nothing. At least I found out that the Rain Gear cover works well . I've never been to Tuttle so if you guys say it's going to be a mud-fest, I believe you. Post up if you guys change your mind before Friday afternoon. If not, I'll be heading back to Wichita for the weekend instead of Tuttle.

And I'll be gone in a few months, so the sooner the better for me getting out somewhere. If it's not before mid-June, I'm out until February.

I just got off the phone with the girlfriend. Quote...."I know you're used to sleeping in the rain and mud, but I'll be damned if you're going to get me out in that $h!t." So I guess we're out as well. I hate wheeling in mud. I'm all for meeting everyone down at Disney if we can put something together later. As for Tuttle, it's going to have to dry out a bit before I'm wanting to go back.

And maybe if we plan this thing for later this summer, I'll have my 8.8 installed.

kraziexj I might still head up Saturday morning depending on the rain reports for today and tomorrow, but it's not looking good. I don't have to drive 2 hours to play in the mud.
04-22-2010 03:31 PM
distortedtj Well the wife says I'm out now too..she doesn't what the kids out there camping in the rain. .

Was really looking forward to this wheeling trip/camping with the family but the weather killed it for me and the family. We can try setting up for a later date.
04-22-2010 10:13 AM
FguyTJ Ya, Tuttle is going to be a soup hole with the amount of raid they're seeing up there right now. Even if it stops soon, it takes the better part of a few weeks for it to all dry up.

Those of you still going, have fun!
04-22-2010 09:37 AM
distortedtj And I hate mud. ...oh well
Weather says clear and sunny all day Saturday!!!

I'll still be there friday on ..unless something happens.
04-22-2010 09:21 AM
Storm27m That sucks man, hope things get worked out.

I'm still heading up if anyone's going to be there. It's raining like hell up here right now though. Hearing the amounts on the news, you'd think they were talking about snow....inches.
04-21-2010 11:26 PM
distortedtj ^^^^^ No problem bud. Prioities first.

I will be heading up friday. If anyone wants to head up with.

When is everyone else going?
Is anyone else going????????
04-21-2010 08:44 AM
FguyTJ Looks like unless things drastically change in the next 24 hours, I'm probably not going to be able to swing this trip. With the good old gubment jerkin us around on the unemployment extension cut off date, I had to go into extreme budget mode, so needless to say, money's a little tighter than normal.

Was really lookin forward to a big camping trip too

I think we can manage some kind of get-together when you come rolling across the plains. I'll be living in Salina later this spring/early summer, so Distorted's offer of an air mattress also stands with me, although Wichita is only an hour and a half from Salina.

No problem Just start a thread about when you'll be passing through KS. Hell I have a queen size air matress with your name on it if your passing through Wichita and want a free bed for the night.

distortedtj No worries cavey.

SO... who is going Thurday or Friday???
04-19-2010 12:42 PM
cavediverjc Looks like it's going to have to be Saturday morning for me. The girlfriend just found out she has to work Friday night at the hospital. We'll plan on leaving EARLY Saturday morning so we can get set up at the campground before everyone wants to go to the ORV Park. I'm bummed. I wanted to get out there Friday evening.
04-19-2010 08:42 AM
kraziexj I was just looking at mine the other day. I've got 35inch Big Horns on 15x8s at 20 psi F&R and still have 1.5 inches on both sides of the tread that isn't touching. I thought about dropping them to 6psi for the week to break them in prior to this weekend.
04-18-2010 10:03 PM
distortedtj That is pretty low. I run 28/27 in my 33's and pretty common pressure is 28psi for 33's. 22psi just seems low for them.

Also if you need to barrow anything else just let us know and we can bring it up with us.
