    Okay, (A)I am not really that familar with the area, (B) I don't have much experience on the rocks, just mud,snow,hills, and mountain roads of Oregon and Washington. What I am looking at is the event that is sopposed to take place on the weekend of April 30th thru May 1st, in Shields,KS. The add I read in the back of Peterson's 4 Wheel and Offroad mag. said "mild to wild". Some friends and I want to go down to it. This would include my Blazer on 35s, an 80's Land Rover that will, hopefully, be on 33s or 35s by that time, and possibly an late 70's Scout. Would these vehicles stand to it? What is it like down there? Don't want to get too beat up as all of these are D.D. and would have to drive the 230 miles home.
    Is anyone else going from Central or Eastern Nebraska area?

    Yes that is it. I just updated the information on the calender. I doesn't look to bad. I think I am going this year too. Hopefully more members will go as well. Check out the calender. I put up a few links to the event and a write up of what 4 Wheel Parts Adventures had to say about it from last year. I know there is a couple of members from the Wichata area here that I would think are going to the "Kansas Krunch?"

    Also I am still working on getting some more details but I have been unsuccessful at reaching anyone so far. I have found a couple of more contacts so hopefully tomorrow will see success!!!
