    How man people from your club is goin and what do they drive?
    I have a K-5 Blazer with 44's.
    Don't think I will make it down any of the trails.
    But i was told there are some good mud holes there.

    Right now it looks like it will be all Jeep guys, and one Bronco II going this time. I have been out of town for work the past week and a half, and gone another week and a half. So, my Blazer time has been robbed. I hope to see you there. Look for our club logo. SwampStompers.

    Check out www.swampstompers.com to see what the logo looks like. If you see any of us, just ask where I am. I really want to meet some guys from this web site.

    We are leaving about 3:30 on Thursday, so we should get there some time from 8:30 to 11:00 or so I guess. I hope to see you there!

    I went through every mud hole i could find and took on one trail all by my lonesome self. i got seperated from my group and took off on a trail, alone. well, my secondary battery tiped over and had a hole burnt through it from rubbing on my air compressor pulley. so i was forced to turn around. ill b back, and i will finish that trail.

    I just got back from a month long surprise trip for work reasons. So, I am still catching up on everything. My club is still going and we have a few others outside the club meeting up also. Not sure where we are staying. But we will be near Attica on Thursday night and heading out for the first time on Friday. I will keep an eye out for you. Look for our club logo.

    Oh and you will find plenty of challenges there. There are MANY MANY places a stocker wil get stuck... someone just didnt look very hard.

    120" and under is considered 4x4. 107" and over is considered full size. dont ask me what it means, but thats what their paper in front of me says.
