The forcast isn't looking the best. Either way you'll be fine. It gets a little muddy, but it doesn't get super snotty. The trucks only section is all rock anyways.

Bray,
We are tentatively planning on the shakedown run on the 4runner for the 22nd. I'll be bringing my wittle zj as well, just putting a bug in your ear.

Roes - Damnit! A week off. Always works out that way it seems. I'd love to see the 4runner in action, you're doing one hell of a job with it. We'll be back June 5th. Just FYI if all goes well with the shake down. Just putting a bug in your ear


Boon - I saw you posted and was hoping you were gonna make it with your X. I actually know a guy that will be with the Xterra group from a local forum. I'm sure we'll meet up on Saturday. Lookin forward to wheelin with you guys!

I'm gonna get up early and pack up my stuff before work. I'll be leaving from work at 5pm from Pekin and heading for the park. Its gonna be another great weekend!

Looks like we have a group heading over there also. Red YJ, red TJ, green YJ, white YJ, dark silver CJ, sami and some other's. We all trailer them in and some with have Empty Pocket Offroad stickers across the windshields of the trail rigs. Some are pretty built to a DD that gets trailers to the trails in case of breakage. Even with mud the Badlands isn't too bad. Looks for us if you want.

Toasted a Warn Premium d44 lockout.



Threw on a stock spare and wheeled the rest of the weekend. Put a decent dent in my gas tank too. Looks like its time to build some skids

I was there too -- with 33 of my other club members and a cable tv news crew who came there to do a story about our 4X4 club (Down & Dirty Off Road) and off roading.

Didn't do the Orange trail until Sunday morning -- It was challenging. The Quarry (where I have the most fun) was a blast both Saturday and Sunday!

I'm the first Jeep (Silver Rubicon) in the video climbing the wall. Early on Saturday parts of the quarry walls were slick (wet).
