Well, there is definately going to be an interlake, and redbird run, which will happen saturday dec. 27 at interlake, and sunday dec. 28 at redbird. As of now there are 3-4 members of northwest indiana jeepers attending both days, a few rigs from a couple different clubs in southern IL attending sunday at redbird, and myself and a few of our members i have talked to privately attending both days... i will make up a better list as we go. interlake is open everyday from dawn till dusk, no gate or fees, 3500 acres, and 50+ miles of trails,and will be available for wheeling saturday dec. 27. here's a link
I have spoken to tony lance at redbird on several occations and they have made redbird available to us sunday dec. 28, anybody can attend ($10 per jeep fee) about 1200 acres, and has one of the BFGoodrich outstanding trails. here's a link.
You can choose to run either saturday or sunday or both. for those running both days we are staying at the drury inn east of evansville on saturday night (which is about 30 minutes south of interlake) but there are several motels in evansville to choose from, then will make the 1 1/2 hour trip up to redbird for sunday.
FYI, interlake is out in the boonies and there are no ammenities, redbird has a town close by, and a gas station down the road which supplies air, but keep in mind these places are definately more primitive and remote then badlands, no recovery or repair other then who we have with us to help. plus, we do not know a whole lot about interlake, so it will be more of a fact finding run (unless we get some peeps to attend that know the trails).
Please post ASAP which day or both you will be attending so we can get a list going. I also realize some will not be able to make these runs due to the holidays, but, we wanted to make it available to all those who can and want to come.
