Dumb question, I plan on going this Sunday, is there enough at the Badlands to make it fun twice in one month? I don't want to be bored, and I know that since the groups are different that it will be a different experience. Only reason I ask is the Badlands is about 3.5 horus from me, and I need to pick and choose my trips, otherwise the wife could put the kibosh down, and while that doesn't mean I won't go it will mean I have to deal with a bunch of **** at home.

The majority of us come from the Chicago area. Our drive is about 3hrs so we know what you're saying. My advice would be to check it out on Sunday and see if you desire more trail time. If you get bit by the Jeep bug you may be dying to wheel by the time two weeks rolls around for this run.

We have runs at least once a month so if you don't feel up for the 28th of this month you can shoot for Oct. 18th (the Haunted Trail run).

Just an FYI, the vast majority of guys that you will be with on Sunday are regulars/members of JGW. <They're good guys!

Minooka huh, we used to play them in baseball. I'm from Putnam County.

Anyway, you're right, I will know more after Sunday. I'm sure that I'll be up for it, the only question is will the Jeep be up for it and will I get permission from the boss.

All being well, I'll be there this Sunday and again in 2 weeks time.

The trails are so much fun that I want to turn around and re-run all them immediately again, so 2 weeks inbetween should be no problem if you have the offroad 'bug'.

Plus, there are a lot of trails to choose from, so you can mix things up a bit. As much as the wheeling is awesome fun, I equally love standing around (usually whilst someone who is stuck is getting pulled out) and shooting the breeze with the folks there....such a great crowd.

Look out for me, I'll have the scruffiest black TJ in the group....

Dave.

Dave, your Jeep sounds just like mine, except the color. Plus, I'm in the Low Output club as well, just until I sell it that is.

this is slightly off topic, but not so much. is it just a coincidence that there's two runs on sundays, or is sunday the preferred day? only reason i ask is because i'm on paid staff at my church so it's hard for me to get out of sundays.
