It doesn't look like I'll be making this trip anymore.. Buying a house is a PITA.

I'll be there on the 27th though.

Everything is still a Go!

This will be interesting because of the weather. We may take it easy that day due to the heavy rain, slick trails and possible flooded trails. Please, do not let this weather change your mind about offroading there will be lots of times the weather will be awesome and we won't have to worry about getting stuck at certain areas. Just bring a raincoat and boots because, You'll get muddy. No matter what, We'll have a Blast!

For the new jeepers that will be joining us on the 12th, Thank You for having interest in our run & hopefully you will become a member of our club. On the 27th lots will be join in because, others cannot make it for the 12th. We'll have an awesome time both days and future runs.

By the way...Hi...

This: "Private location now open for dealer and special events. More details to follow." is posted on the Badlands site, and I'm really curious to find out what they did. I wonder if they closed off a section, or are just willing to close off a section when needed. I would hate to drive for 4-hours and find out they closed off one of the better sections of the park.

If anyone knows or finds out, let the rest of us know.

Looking forward to the 27th.

Hi Jeff,

This "Private Location" is at Lisa & Troys other offroading park called
"Mission Impossible" This park that they own is only set for special events and groups. They had this area for quite sometime already and is popular with rock buggies and bigger built rigs. I'm sure in-time we'll go there. It's a bit more hardcore but, We'll make it there

I'll see you on the 27th and bring other jeepers with you! Thanks again for all the cool write ups on our events and very nice pictures of all of us.
Awesome job!

Thank You,
Michael
Club President

Just so you guys know. My gf and I got up at 6:30, that way we could get to badlands by 8:00...

Problem 1:
Badlands doesn't open till 9:00 our time... DOH!

Problem 2:
Didn't check the forums till this morning (bad idea) and you guys aren't going to be there till 10:30 or 11:00... DOH!

O well, I guess that means we're really not rushed for time!

See you all there!!! And it looks like it is gonna rain on us all day... I just checked the weather.

(Even though I'm pretty sure no one will get this till we get back. haha)
