Badlands this October?
 
I haven't been there yet and wanna go soon. I should have some new mods done by next month. so who's down?

Mike5087 09-15-2011 05:42 AM

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

Vonsidhe 09-15-2011 09:54 AM

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:D

moe 09-15-2011 12:07 PM

Hmmm.......Badlands, I might be up for that...

crikeyjeepturtles 09-15-2011 01:47 PM

yeah don, you should tag along. we will need a good trail lead

jkaufman_95 09-16-2011 09:43 PM

If it fits in with work I'm in

Ageless Stranger 09-16-2011 09:53 PM

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.

crikeyjeepturtles 09-18-2011 10:50 PM

I'm only free the 4th weekend of october now. Requested too many days off this month to go look at houses down south:facepalm:

jkaufman_95 09-18-2011 10:50 PM

I think 4th weekend works for me

Vonsidhe 09-19-2011 11:03 AM

4th weekend = 22 and 23, im for sure in for one of those days...

Is that the one in Marseilles????
Is it better than badlands?? Thanks!

crikeyjeepturtles 09-26-2011 09:19 PM

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

Vonsidhe 09-27-2011 09:04 AM

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!

Keeping an eye on this :)

Pebbs 10-03-2011 03:26 AM

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!!!

Mike5087 10-03-2011 03:47 AM

I'm going to try to go this weekend. Gunna be my first time out. Looking to hit some easy trails

95yjjrp 10-03-2011 07:46 PM

i would like to join, but don't have a way to get my jeep to the badlands

You could drive it?! Haha

HowardJ 10-03-2011 11:48 PM

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. :p
This is my first Jeep, and I would LOVE to take it to the BL.

Anybody else wheel with a manual tranny?

Pebbs 10-04-2011 03:42 PM

Summers Camp Ground have trails? People go out there to wheel?

HowardJ 10-04-2011 05:50 PM

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.

jp2611 10-04-2011 05:59 PM

scribed might be up for this depending on the day only a 2hr drive......or so

i don't want to pay that fuel bill

Mike5087 10-04-2011 07:37 PM

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!

95yjjrp 10-04-2011 11:28 PM

yeah, i know what your saying. i don't like being called a napervillian just coz i live there now, was born and raised in aurora. but only getting like 4 miles to the gallon in my jeep so it doesn't get driven far unless my daily driver is broke down, kind of like right now.
