If it a silver 4 door, I think I saw him out at the interstate research park in Champaign last week. I had my TJ out there(drove it to work). It looked like a beast for sure. I went out with the family late afternoon topless yesterday and was in Bellflower for a bit. I am originally from Fisher, so I know alot of the surrounding areas near you quite well.

If you know anyone that gets a newspaper in Bellflower I deliver it. I deliver both the News Gazette and The Pantagraph there.

Known few people in Bellflower... of course the Hobbs family (known quite a few of them over the years) and Cuppernells I think still live over there as well.

I don't live there anymore. I live near mansfield now out in the country. We just bought a house in bloomington though so we're getting ready to move back to town. It will be a long drive to Badlands from bloomington

Will be a bit of a drive but not too bad. You will also be a bit closer to The Cliffs Off-Road park. Been there once and talk about sticky mud...rained most of the day and was a challenge. If you want o see some vids of my outting there, look in the Illinois section on page 2 or 3 and find Midwest Wheeling Invite. Should be some vids there still. Thats was when my TJ was stock on 31`s.

That cherokeee would have been me. I had no business being in that situation. Not enought tire. My XJ just can make the turns that the TJ's can. At one point I had to take a secondary line because I could't clear the preferred line. I had to jump over a huge log about 2/3 up. I ended up with this.

Oh well. I had a great time and met some new friends, and probably a few who'd rather not see me back again.

I thought it was crazy to see you down there. Props to you for trying! I wouldn't be down there. I'm not big on crazy rock crawling.

I like that picture! I have a few but not in the mud. We were having too much fun in the water and mud to get out and take pictures.

All these pictures are of my jeep. It's all stock with 31" mud rovers. I never got stuck. I went through some crazy stuff too. I was proud of my little TJ.

I'm trying to figure out why I don't know you. I've lived in Farmer City for 28 years. Every see a Yellow CJ5 running around, White 4dr Cherokee maybe, or maybe an F250 crew cab 4x4 v10 black?
