ok so its that time to start planning a trip to badlands sometime this spring, what dates would work best for you?????

for me middle of april is the best, aytime after april 2nd.....it should be warm by then as well as a nice amount of rain to make some mud for thoes who like the smelly badlands mud.

So lets hear if you want to go and when works for you....also we could turn this into a camping trip as there is a campground right outside of the gate.

The three of us that went in the fall had a blast, Me Ebinterceptor and Arnie897. here are our pics to get you excited http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1054686&highlight=badlands#post1054686

Arnie897 started his own midwest based board so if you are interested in going either post here or there and lets hear what dates work best for you.
here is a link to the thread over at midwestoffroad: http://www.midwestoffroad.com/index.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=313

Lets Make This a Great Trip. :D

Gotta look at the schedule for the kids spring break...can't make it if it does. Otherwise I will definitely be there - and camping sounds great! (I wanted to camp this weekend, but everyone else pussed out because of snow and 0 degree temps. Sissies.)

Nissanboy - I haven't been there, but it is supposed to be the best the the 3 biggest ones in Indy - I've go a buddy with a built up Rover complete with front spear to keep from rolling head over heels. He likes Badlands - and keeps telling me to get a real truck before going or I'll break my little "grocery getter". So, should be rough enough for you- but maybe someone who has been there can tell it better?

DMan/Taxx - still on for Sat?

I discovered today that May 28th (Saturday) is the weekend....not the 26th... A few other people told me they didn't feel like wheeling on a Thursday!
