Looking good Fred, glad to see you on here. Hows the computer running?

I'd love to make this run but the Jeep is going under the knife for a little, a few repairs and an inch more lift is in order. I better see some pics though!

P/c is going very good. Back to the speed I'm used to. I cant thank you enough for the tune up. I'll get as many pics as I can And see if I can Nominate someone there to help with the task. Then maybe when you all see the fun we will be having you wont be able to resist the next time. But I can understand the distance and the gas money involved. So no worries this is about intraducing new people to the club and seeing about some new recrutes for the team. I am hoping to see alot of people from Indiana show up. So we'll see. Im going to call the guy that I sold the green sami to and see if he would be interested in coming out and testing the rig I dont think hes had it out since he bought it from me. We'll see. But thanks again P/c is doing good. Remember all the fire wood you can handle.

i live in bloomington IN...about 45-60 mins from dugger. i was there on opening day this year. a club i'm in actually "adopted" trail 4 i think, i'd know it if i was on it.
my jeep is built enough that i could probably help the mild jeeps on some of the harder parts if need-be. if it's muddy, a lot of the hills become slip and slides. and the trail my club adopted has a couple nasty mud holes...and the bypass is a steep hill that's hard to get up when it's slick. i had to winch through it in the old jeep (open difs and AT's).

I was telling alot of the guys that belong to the club I'm in that it was alot different from the Badlands in Attica. And there was some easier trails, but there was also some monsters.and that having a group for this park is better that trying to attack it solo. My first time there wasin a stock black TJ. 31" tires AT's of course and no lift. the only thing that i did do is disconnect the sway bar links. But when i got to some of the parts thats looked nasty i turned around. My wife and i were the only ones there it seemed and i wasnt going to swallowed by a mud hole and not have a way out. The new Jeep is A 97 TJ, 2 3/4" body lift, 33/12.50 Big O x/t's, Open Diff's no sway bar links I do pretty well I keep up with a pretty wicked rig (Who is the Pres. of our group) JeepsGoneWild.org

I wish I could, but it's just not in the cards. Sounds like a place I'll have to get to.

10 Days left ya'll, scape them pennies for gas. The journey is on. Lets all try our best to leave the excuses at home, and come enjoy a new park. It will be worth your wild. And all you guys out there that arent a part of the club come out and enjoy the weekend. Meet new people and have a blast. I am looking forward to seeing alot of new faces as well as alot of known faces. So stop buying all the extra grocries you know you dont need. Put off that light bill and who cares about the haet bill either its still summer. Lets get it together and get out there. Hope to see you there. Also before i quit running my gums. Can we try to start a new list of those of you in and out of the club that are planning to come. I would like to get an Idea. Thanks

I wish Ashley,Zach and Me can join this cool run. But, sorry we cannot make this run because, lots of things going on with Ashleys & Zachs school, Work, Gas is expensive driving so far and other concerns. We would love to enjoy a new offroading area and I would like to see how well Fred plans this run. I know who ever will go will really enjoy thier time offroading and camping out. Just think safe and represent our club well. This is a start to show off our club in a new area and for others to to get interested in our club. Our goal is to spread our club thought out other states and to have regional leaders for thier states. I know this will happen intime and cannot wait for this to come into play. Fred will do very well and I wish him luck. Again, Please be patient with him because, this will be his first planned run. Fred is also willing to learn from others so, anyone can provide some pointers about offroading and jeeps. I am still learning as a club president and I would also love some advice from our members and new offroaders. I know Fred will do well and he'll have fun having everyone join in on his trail run. So please... Come join in from stock to built jeeps. It's going to be a blast! Have fun everyone and think Safety.
