The Badlands Offroad Park (http://www.badlandsoffroad.com/)
3968 N. Xavier Rd.
Attica, Indiana 47918

Opens 9 AM and closes 5 PM ( I would like to ride all day)

The plan is to meet up an oasis that is close to everyone and is also on the way down to the park and caravan down as a group.

So far these are the people going
(I will continuously update this, and let me know if I left you out):

-Aric(me) - Explorer on 33's
-Kierre - Ranger FX4 on stock shoes
-Matt - Ranger FX4 level II on 31's
-Matt P.- Explorer on 31's


Let me know if you want to join. everyone is invited and no one has hardcore trail rigs. stock 4x4's welcome to come.

CB and Tow Points are a GREAT idea tho. unless you want to be pulled from your front crossmember or from this odd point in the back of an explorer by the spare tire that likes to bend pretty easy.

Check out GJarrett's trail equipment page for an awesome list of required and recomended supplies. http://www.explorer4x4.com/trail_equip.html

This sounds like a good time. I will see if I can get that nite off of work, I would probably go down Friday and camp out near by.

In a few months when I get done with the repair of my newly acquired ride I might be able to join you guys for a trip to the badlands... ;)
