Just made reservation at Attica Family Campground for Friday night the 22nd. Water & electric only $25.

Four people are included with this price...therefore 3 more can stay on this campsite. First come - first serve. I am just pitching a simple pop up tent so there will be plenty of room for other tents. This is Camping Lot #34.

The initial plan is to meet up at Marks on 59 at 5pm & depart at 5:30pm this Friday. However, I am on vacation so there is a slight possibility I may leave earlier so I do not slow people down being I keep Itsy under 65mph.

Sounds good. We can have more than 4 people....we simply need to pay $3.00 to add on per person. I figure we should have enough room for everyone on one lot.

I would suggest that if its gonna be hot that someone brings one of thise "pop up tents" because there isn't a lick of shade at that campground... They do have one of those menards steel carports in the middle of the primitive area tho... We usually stay at Summers which is like 6 miles up the road, plenty of shade, swimming pool and bigger/more shower houses..

It looks like Nick (Nickc944) is going to tag along with me. He's thinking about buying new tires and rims for his JK after the tire blowout he had last Saturday...everyone encourage him! It's a good amount of money but worth it!

By early next week I will have 5 logos up for the club to discuss. I have my software issue addressed, now I want to go back and possibly use some of the photos you guys took and manipulate a Jeep or two to add to a couple of the designs. It all depends how they look when I get them into Photoshop. I have a couple of them selected though!

Sorry it has taken so long!

Patience is a virtue, thanks guys!!!!

Looked like a great trip, once I get locked and get my 33s on, I hope to come along and represent the Old YJs!

Ditto Itsy! I love my KM2's.

I broke down and renewed my Jeepforum subscription today. I haven't surfed around on here much in the past year until today. I'm once again blown away by how awesome so many rigs on here are. I guess if I still lived with my parents and didn't have student loans, though, mine would be just as nice.
