Well thats the thing - for the 17th one is for sure - two are iffy, and two couldn't make that date but could make memorial day. I posted on our site, just haven't heard back from anyone - I did make a reservation for a trailer for memorial day weekend just to be safe.

I got 33's, rear locker, winch, and not affraid of body damage so should be able to keep up for the most part.
I'm game for whatever. JustClimbIt's locked front and rear and I'm only running a front locker w/ rear LSD. I haven't been to the Badlands in years and the times I was before did a lot of quad riding and the Jeeping was minimal (Jeep was new/bone stock and my girlfriend was paranoid that we were going to destroy the Jeep. go figure..).
Nonetheless, years and many mods later I'm really looking forward to checking out the trails I've seen there but didn't get a chance to wheel.

Okay looks like I am in - anyone know if spots can be reserved at the campground? Again I won't be there till opening on Saturday - also I forget is that area on Eastern or Central time now? As of now I can camp Sat night - leave Sunday, don't know how packed the campground will be on the holiday either. If the other PWs show up we won't be going on the tight trails, and I will wheel with them for a bit, then break out the jeep and do the tighter stuff. Don't think the wife would appreciate a lot of dents / scratches in the new truck - lol. Are we just going to look for each others rigs in the morning, or do we want to meet somewhere, etc? I got your number still Ben (assuming it hasn't changed) so will call ya Sat morning or Fri evening (if that is okay with you). Anyone running cbs?

Sounds good ed. You should try and come a little early so you can just park your truck at the campground with us. Ya my number is still the same so if you want to call that would be ok. I will have the cb in my xj.

What time Friday you heading down Ben ? I am off Friday so I can actually go sooner and camp Fri night as well. That way I have a better chance of getting a spot. I'll swing by the u-haul and change my pickup time if you are heading earlier on Fri - this is the one downfall to renting a trailer still.

Jim and Kyle it was nice meeting you guys. I tried to catch you on the CB before we left but no luck. After my buddies damage he was in a bad mood so we ended up heading home early. I hope to wheel with you guys again, take care.
