Badlands Trip 3-24-2012

Looks like thats a good date for a lot of people to hit the trails at the badlands.. Figured I'd make a thread to get a head count going. Theres about 8 of us planning on making the trip. Gonna be at the lower lot around 9:30am Indiana time. I personally wont be camping out since it will still be cold.. so its just a one day trip for me.

I used to live in Waukegan. I am actually there right now. We had a Jeep mod party in Winthrop Harbor last night. There were 12 Jeeps.. and about 25 to 30 people there working on Jeeps. I am going to post pics and videos later. There are about 4 or 5 people in the Waukegan area I wheel with regularly that you could convoy down with.

cool. The way it usually works is a lot of people come down to champaign (where I live the night before and get a cheap hotel room on friday night. I think they have found them for like 40 or 60 bucks.. They do that because its better than driving 4 hours saturday morning before wheeling all day kinda sucks. When it gets warmer out we usually camp out all weekend. So then saturday morning we leave champaign around 8 am.. and get to the badlands around 9am.. which is 10am indiana. then we wheel until about 5 or 6 indy time.. and drive back.

we can do that. We usually meet in the lower lot at 10 am Indiana time.. then wheel til about 5 or 6. We are a mix of tjs, jks, and a couple cherokees on occasion. When the warmer weather hits we camp out at summers camp ground.
this is a few of us.. mine is the green jk

Update..3/12/2012

we have about 25 Jeeps that say they are going on the 24th. With how nice the weather is getting I think we are going to try to camp out. We plan on being at the Badlands by 10am Indiana time. We are gonna camp at the Summers Camp ground.. thats NOT the campground right outside the Badlands. We plan on running channel 24 on the cb.. but with so many people we will probably break up into groups and use channel 25 and maybe 26 as well. Hope to see you all there.

I'll try to be there! Gotta check it with the bank account...I'm supposed to be saving up for vacation the following week. I've never been to the Badlands before, just driven by it.
