    In Knoxville Iowa. Its $50 for the whole weekend and I think $10 for each passenger. There are showers available, a band saturday night and a hog roast. Its on roughly 300 acres and has the only rock garden in the state of Iowa /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif . This is considered one of the best events of the year. Let me know if anyone is interested. I will have mine done and plan on rippin' up some trails!
    (treading lightly of course /forums/images/icons/smile.gif )

    Not too bad... same or closer than Attica. As long as it doesn't conflict with the "Midewst K5 Summer Thing" - I think I can make that! Let me put that on the "maybe" calander.

    It is Labor Day Weekend. Let me know if you are coming, you will pass right by on the way. Plus, I know a short cut now. When I went down there in April, I made the mistake of going across the bridge over Red Rock when it was windy as he!!. The Burb didn't like that too well. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif Can't say that I did either.

    Okay Okay, I guess I will have to go to this one. Didn't realise Knoxville was so close to Kirksville, MO. My parents live there. Anyway, that should give me incentive to get the dual case installed and many other mods. Where do I sign up? Any more info on the run? Who do we contact?

    Checked out that site and didnt see any run info.

    Hehehehe... guess I should look at the right month huh? I was looking at July, not August! Ooops! /forums/images/icons/blush.gif Anywho, count me in as long as the summer run doesn't conflict! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Rodzilla - Let me know when and where I can meet you. We'll do that for sure! Hope I can get my shims installed before then! /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif I have a "little" vibe around 55mph right now... need a little pinion down motion in the rear!

    You have to consider who was hosting the party! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif Howie is a cool dude for a Bronco owner. But, I remember when he owned a full top Blazer. So, I guess he can't be all bad.

    Anyone wanting to go should think about getting there friday evening to get a good camping spot (if you want to camp) as long as there are 3 rigs we could go wheeling fridaynight too... Also I am checking to see if there is a cheaper rate for registering early.

    Sounds Good. We will have to hash out the details. Trying to get a couple of other guys that are "Computer Impaired" rounded up.
