Sorry for the late notice ... My daughter and Me just got back from our vacation from Miami and Orlando We had an awesome time.

The cool thing is that we both gotten tattoos that has an offroading theme. I have Super Swamper Bogger Tire Tracks that wraps around my left arm with a Heart that says "My Baby Love Ashley" and my daughter gotten a tattoo that says "Daddy's Lil' Girl" with 4 Jeeps around her ankle. This was a very special time for the both of us because, We both Love each other and share so much interest in a lot of things. The tattoo guy is a jeep owner and is in a jeep club. We are both happy we gotten our tattoos by a jeep owner and loves this hobby as we all do.

We'll show our tattoos on the 5th but, it maybe peeling when we show it.

Jeeps Rock!

Ok... Who's bringing what???

Let's make sure we won't be bringing lot's of extra food and extra stuff we don't need. Just remember...There is a local grocery store down the street and we can purchase other items if we need it.

If you can...please bring some fire wood.

You can sleep in a tent or your jeep. Most of us will be sleeping in our tents.
Chairs are also nice to bring along and it's relaxing after a long day wheeling.
We'll also need an over hang/shade over our table and some lights. Bug candles and bug sprays are also needed. If we are going to grill please bring easy to light charcoal so, we do not need to bring lighting fluids. We are going to need plates and other eating items. These are just a few things I can think of on what to bring and I am sure there will be more. Let's see what others are going to bring.

I will be there as well as my girlfriend, but we wont be able to show up until saturday evening, hopefully by 6 or 7, we will be there for the camp out and for wheeling all day sunday as far as fire wood I believe Indiana still has a law where we can't bring fire wood from county to county (or state by that matter) due to emerald ash borers. So we will probably have to just pick up fire wood in town. If anyone else knows about this law for sure feel free to chime in. I will do a little bit of research to see if it is still restricted.

Hey Mike, glad to hear you guys had a good time. I wanna see your new tats!

Me and Mindy will be there, ready to leave early on Saturday morning. Like I said I can bring a portable weber grill that looks like this It can do about 8 burgers at a time so if everyone is cool with that... I'll bring a cooler packed with water/pop as well so if anyone needs to mooch its fine by me.

I can strap some wood to my roof rack.. http://lists.in.gov/pipermail/wildbu...ay/000205.html According to this as long as your bring the wood from a non quarantined area you are fine, and they just want you to burn it all before you leave. (so us from Illinois are good) I'll bring as much as I can.

I know you YJ/TJ guys have limited space so I don't mind packing my station wagon.

Repost this with any additions.
Eddie (White XJ): Weber grill, cooler full of drinks/food, some firewood, chairs...

I will most likely be going, but have a slight dilemma. My Rubicon I recently picked up has some crappy AT tires rather than the MTR's it should have. But before I run out and buy new tires, I am going to lift it first, then get either 33's or 35's. I told myself that before I modify it, I will get rid of the WJ first. Well, in an effort to get rid of the WJ, I have been slowly parting it out. Soooo, I don't really have any skid plates, and I may have my sliders sold. I may be able to "barrow" the skid plates from a friend. My biggest issue is that I don't want to completely ruin the WJ and be forced to turn it into a trail rig (that is why I bought the Rubi). So I guess I can either bring my built WJ or stock Rubicon with sub-par tires... What do you think?

I have a few lamps I can bring, along with bug spray, plates and what ever else I can just get from the store after we meet up and figure out what we're missing.

I say bring the Rubi and see what she'll do as is, it'll give you some idea how well those future improvements actually work.

There's no way I can make the 5th.....25th class reunion that night. If I don't stay out too late I'll try and make the 6th. I'm hoping I can...it's always a blast wheeing with the club.

X2! Locked A/Ts should work a bit better than open A/Ts. (and plenty of people have run the trails on open A/Ts.)

I will definitely bring a generator if need be for the t.v. or anything else. And I will check if my pop-up tent is working. Does anyone know the rules about liquor if you are staying in the campground. I think I saw a sign last time, but maybe that was no liquor outside of camp.
