Badlands Trip August 6th

some guys from Illinois and indiana are hitting up the badlands on the 6th. Going to meet there around 9 Indiana time and wheel all day.. then camp out at summers camp ground and possibly wheel the next day as well. Anyone interested?

I prob won't camp. I only live about 2 hrs away from the badlands, but still haven't went there since I got the jeep. I'm also new to wheelin in a jeep or anything other than my 4wheeler so this will be my first time with a four wheel drive vehicle. Lol

Hell.. i only live 45 mins away and we camp.. we do it just because we enjoy camping and it gives you the chance to check out everyone elses jeep. we will grill out and drink a few beers and BS. youre more than welcome to join the group if youd like. its faily cheap too. 20 bucks for a site.. but you can split a site with someone.. so youre typically looking at 10 bucks or so. this is from last time we went...

How built up are the jeeps in the group going to be? I live a few hours north of Attica and would like to go, but my jeep is fairly stock. 1" shackle lift and 1" BL with 30x9.5R15 tires. Would my jeep be able to keep up with the others? Also this would be my first time at the Badlands.

New to this forum, been over at wranglerforum.com for a few months.

I'm looking at wheeling the on 6th. Girls are going out of town & me & my son need something to do. Was thinking of making a trip to Interlake, but might join this group if you all don't mind. It's about an hour shorter drive for me than Interlake.

Anyone else bring kids. My boys only 4, goes by the name of Bubba.

You would be fine. Lots of stuff and plenty of places to get around something you are not sure of. I'm thinking of going to this myself.

Well if I can get my new rear bumper on this weekend I might go. I've been wanting to go to the Badlands all summer. Just never had a group or anyone to wheel with.

Welp...

we have a wide variety of jeeps going.. some stock.. all the way up to competition ready! there are by passes on every trail so if you dont think you can make it you can drive around. we are also now up over 25 jeeps going.. not including the handful of maybes. some people are camping out the night before.. some are meeting at the badlands saturday morning. the group of 6 jeeps i convo over with will be meeting in champaign, il and heading out around 7 am. we usually get to the badlands around 9 or 9:30 attica time since they are an hour ahead of us and meet in the lower lot and are usually on the trails by 10. we are also camping out that night at the summers campground which is 5 mins away from the badlands. Its a good time to sit and have a few beers, grill out, and check out everyones rigs. Some are going back to the badlands the next day. I am guessing most of you guys have CBs? i am not sure what channel everyone is planning on running but as soon as it is posted I will post it here.
