I plan to be there. As far as I know Rod and Jerry plan on coming again as well. Gotta get Jerry's Jeep fixed for sure first though. This time I have REAL license plates though. Either way, the Pumpkinator is there.

Anyone on the Eastern side of Attica that wants to Caravan in with us is welcome. PM me with your phone number and we can decide where we'll be meeting up. We'll be coming in from Indy/Anderson area. We'll be taking 32 to 74 to 41 on into Attica. If you are on the way, shoot me a PM. If you are NOT on the way but still want to meet with us along the way, that works too.

I'm in! My buddy Jay should be coming along as well. I will have a new passenger, another friend needs to catch the bug!

Hopefully the weather will come around by then, I don't want to have to run a top this time.

Some of us put the top down anyways Of course, the only reason I did was because the wife was begging and said that she would clean out the interior if I did.

A month later and I still see mud.

I thought about taking it down, but didn't want to deal with it. Leaving it at home is going to be the way to go!

I was surprised that it wasn't a LOT worse than it was. If I hadn't gotten stuck in that big *** mud hole, and spun my tires so much to get out, I'd have only had a few spatters here and there. That mud hole is what made most of the mess. It's all good though. I found a place here in town that will detail clean inside and outside for 21 bucks. WOOT!

You will have a blast. JGW is a great group, I plan on joining. They are too nice and helpful to not join.


Mike, if I may make a suggestion? Can we hit the creek trail closer to the end of the day so we can get some of that mud washed out? I'm STILL knocking clumps of mud out from under the Jeep. LOL I walked out into the driveway the other day and it looked like my Jeep took a crap.

I'm surprised those tires of yours threw any mud at all.....
Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Hey, at least they are land terrains... they've got about 3/4" deep tread on them. There's plenty of room for mud to pack on in there. My tires stick out about 3-4" past my flares... it made for a messy run.

I won't have that problem when I get these... http://www.4wd.com/productdetails.aspx?partID=15522

Mike, so you know, "Four Wheels to Freedom" is going to be at the Badlands on the 17th as well. A friend is part of their club, and told me about it. Just a heads up. It's going to be pretty crowded.
