Bring your jeep out. There are a lot of places to wheel around here.

I'm down the road in Madison, I go to about 6 IU basketball games a year. I've not been to Badlands so if you plan on going I would love to join. Could bring a buddy too.

Haspin and Redbird would be a lot closer to you than the Badlands. All would be a lot of fun.

Welcome to the Hoosier state!

I didn't think freshmen were allowed to have vehicles on campus at IU.....

We are but we have to park in the stadium parking and try to find spots around town when theres a football or basketball game.

And as for the culture shock, i'm prepared, jersey isn't my style.

Redbird is mostly trail riding with a nice rock garden. The Badlands is a combination of the "dunes", trails and a rock quarry. Haspin Acres is trails. Depends on what type of wheeling you prefer. Welcome to the hoosier state also. I haven't been to Haspin in my jeep but have been there alot on quads and dirt bikes. I prefer Redbird because the trails are more challenging than The Badlands. The Badlands is fun though.
