    There is a group from my club that is going. We are leaving Thursday after work(the 18th). And starting the fun Friday morning in the Badlands. I probably wont bring my truck. Want to work out more of the bugs before I do a 7 hour trailer trip somewhere.

    I've been thinking about it. Probably will, since my two brothers will end up going. Let me know if you go for sure.

    Yeah, the wesite... www.badlandsoffroad.com doenst have much about it at all.

    I got the date confirmation from Superlift's website, but didnt poke around any more to see if there was more about the event. I would check that site first.

    I know there is magazine coverage every year there. Lots of cool stuff. I think it is mostly like a giant trail ride with about 200 trucks. Real good time from what I am told.

    I went to the Superlift thing in Attica back in 2000 with a Jeep group. It was a lot of fun. That place has quite a wide array of terrains to offer. Mud- deeper than you could imagine....Tight, twisty woodsy trails....sand, some rocks....and my favorite- a tight, twisty creek trail that led you through an enormous culvert pipe- that literally dumps you into a small, but deep pool of water. If I get the bugs in my K5 worked out during the Spring K5 run, I would enjoy that trip.
