Annual Hoosiers
 
I've noticed that there is quite the number of Hoosiers on this board!

I haven't met any of you and that's a damn shame :facepalm:

Anyone interested in getting an annual or bi-annual or maybe a quarterly Hoosier get together and wheel event? We have quite a few different places to play! Heck, we could expand this to a midwest WF event, since the guys out with all the big rocks have one ;)

I wanna have some trips marked on my calendar for this year so I have something to look forward too!

05wrangler 01-27-2011 06:52 PM

i would like to get some trips wracked out that for sure, my uncle also lives here and owns a jeep

drjay 01-27-2011 07:05 PM

On my trip to superlift in Hot Springs, AR two months ago there was a bunch of guys for Indiana. Lot of good looking rigs. Very friendly bunch. They seem to like beer.

InfernoGirl 01-27-2011 07:08 PM

LOL... It's a requirement to like beer if you're from Indiana I think.

BigEZ 01-27-2011 07:14 PM

<-- no longer a Hoosier, but not too far and I'd be happy to wheel @ the BadLands with ya'll.

and I like beer.

IndyJeepMan 01-27-2011 07:20 PM

Haha beer for sure goes across the board. But yeah, if enough people are willing to set a few days back for an event then I'd love to be there the more the merrier! And of course we will have all kinds of fun, food pictures and stuff. We can always have a big ole grille and chill event as well.

Always an idea, and I'd love to make it happen and to meet some fellow jeepin' hoosiers!

Badlands
Laurel
Redbird
Interlake

maybe more?

BigEZ 01-27-2011 08:03 PM

there's been a couple of guys from the Chicago area trying to get a Badlands trip organized in the spring, we could combine. I'd be happy to act as interpreter between the groups.

Flyby 01-27-2011 08:05 PM

Sounds good I would love to meet some Hoosier Jeepers! Just let me know when & where

05wrangler 01-27-2011 09:04 PM

Vanimal00000 01-27-2011 09:11 PM

Flyby, what part of btown are you from? I went to South for high school but migrated up to Northwest Indiana for school and now work.

IndyJeepMan 01-27-2011 10:17 PM

We could def. do a mix with guys from chicago, or even michigan wherever!

Badlands seems to be the consensus for where everyone wants to go, its a great time. I know for Inferno and others down south itll be quite a trip but hey! You get to meet Hoosiers! :punk:

Sounds like we have some strong support for a nice trip there, maybe we can make it a 2 day thing since there is a campgrounds on site and night wheelin'!

If we can all post times, most likely once its warm so mid to late spring early summer would work and I graduate with my degree this april it can be a gift! If we get a consensus on days, and plenty of time ahead of that we can gather resources and get the days off and plan ahead! Sounds like we have a great possibility of getting this going!

Any ideas are very welcome here!

05wrangler 01-27-2011 10:25 PM

two day operation sound good make a weakend out of it

Flyby 01-28-2011 06:41 AM

I can see Bloomington South H. S. from my office window. Nice to hear of some jeepers from around BMG

Well, i've secured my big texas trailer and haul truck so I'm set for transportation and i'm getting repairs done so I'll be trail ready.. I know its still early in the game, but the earlier that we can get down some dates that everyone could do is best so people have plenty of time to plan ahead and give a yes or no.

Are there any days that anyone is thinking about? I was thinking mid to late spring or early summer. I don't like mud all the much so the less rain the better ;)

And, once we figure out the day or days of the trip we can start posting up what resources we have, rops, straps, winch, OBA, stuff like that then if we want we can get into food beverages if we want to have a grill and chill. My job is very leniant and I can get any day off, although I don't usually work weekends.

BADBOY-RUBICON 01-29-2011 07:28 AM

I'd be interested!

mhaines 01-29-2011 07:36 AM

Just about any time other than the second week if may (jeepbeach) is good. Just did a run on Jan 2 with a group at the badlands and had a great time!

BigEZ 01-29-2011 07:55 AM

not that I'm an integral part of all this, but you asked so here's my suggestion:

05/21 - I've got a big jeep build planned for the following Memorial Day weekend, so if I break something I won't be too PO'd as I can just add it to the list. that way she'll only be out of commission for a week.

after Memorial Day I'm pretty wide open until Independence Day weekend. Plus I'll be itching to show off the new mods :punk:

Flyby 01-29-2011 09:08 AM

I am with indyjeepman, not a big mudder. What does June 11-12 look like for everyone?

BigEZ 01-29-2011 09:38 AM

June 11/12 is fine w/ me

IndyJeepMan 01-29-2011 10:45 AM

BigEZ you are good no matter what! Either no risk's wheeling then build, or build then wheel, youre set! haha. Well, I'm good for any day and everyone is an intergral part to us all getting together and having a good time. We just need a good consensus of dates and then maybe I can add a poll or something of the sort.

05wrangler 01-30-2011 07:08 PM

im good for june 11-12 please keep me posted guys

IndyGoat 02-02-2011 08:49 PM

Just rejoined the fray after being jeep-less for several years. I would be very interested in meeting up with some central-Indy wheelers for some off-highway time. May is a bit difficult but the rest is good . . .
Would love to see Interlake and I've heard there is a nice place around French Lick?

millfire517 02-03-2011 11:35 PM

Be nice if we could have a get together where people can help tinker on each others rigs, and have like a pig roast and stuff for dinner

IndyJeepMan 02-04-2011 03:57 PM

Sounds like an awesome idea as well! Id love to have a roast party and to work with others rigs.

June 11-12 seems to fit alot of peoples schedule, post up if you can make it on those dates, we can see how many people can do it.

BigEZ 02-04-2011 07:16 PM

i'm in

Flyby 02-04-2011 08:36 PM

Sounds good to me as well!

millfire517 02-04-2011 08:40 PM

I'll mark my calender then, any idea where we might have the get together?

BigEZ 02-04-2011 11:58 PM

I'd prefer badlands, but only cause it's closest and I haven't been there yet

05wrangler 02-05-2011 01:25 AM

im down for the dates, just let me know where

Flyby 02-05-2011 06:55 AM

Badlands or Redbud it's all good
