Wow, i'm happy the thread finally came to life haha! I don't know about dman but i'll (me and my fiance) probably be camping. Hopefully a number of people will. I thought dman told me that there was a camp ground by badlands. I'll try to get my brother to come also (he has a stock cheby 1/2 ton). It seems like early june (5th is my choice) is pretty popular. And yeah the more the merrier!
there is a campground right infront of the park as well as a couple others right around that area...info right off the badlands website...

ok people....we need to hear from you if you plan on going and what day and time you are going.....so far it looks like june 5th for wheeling, thats what the few people have said....we need to get a list of who plans on going....post up with your plans
How far south in Indiana is that? The border is a good couple hour drive for me, but I would like to make it out to a run sometime. I'd have to get some shackles and TT before I go. I am interested though.
its just south of Lafayette.....roughely an hour and a half from michighan i belive you can get dirrections from the website... www.badlandsoffroad.com also you dont nessicarrly need the tt and shackles... i will most likely be stock stilll... just make sure you have some tow points. hope ta see ya there
That's not too bad. Maybe like a 4 hour drive or something I'm guessing. I looked up the directions before I posted but they didn't mention anything about directions from Michigan and I don't have an atlas near by to figure it out The 12th is my brothers birthday, so I'll have to check what's going on with that. Otherwise I'll try to take that weekend off from work or whenever else it is.
I've got tow hooks, just need to finish the drilling.
Edit: The shackles and TT I've been planning on getting, but what better time to try them out.
I looks to be about 5 and a half hours for me. The weekend 11-13 looks good. I think the last weekend of May is Memorial Day. I would be comming up most likely Friday and camping 'til Sunday or Monday.
