    Most of you have been doing a great job at posting up runs and event information which is killer. This spring, lets get some good action shots and trail reports going. I am guilty of being a deadbeat because of my rig being nonexistant. After its done this Spring it is AWN! I want to make a trip up to Rockport, Attica and Cliffs - so you guys should plan on making a trip down to good 'ole Missourah! We need to get Dan Dycus off the porch. I need to get myself up and going, Brent needs an excuse not to sell his rig, Tyler needs to finish that stinky rig of his and we all need to go wheeling.

    I agree completely!!! A lot of us have kinda lost contact with each other. I think we midwesterners need to get some kind of official run set up for '05 Like Blazer Bash Midwest '05!!! We all need to get back in the swing of things with our own rigs as well as helpin out one another when they need it. I will have a trailer in '05 so long trips are in the works!!!!:thumb:

    Boy you said it, I've spent a few nights workin on it with him the past few months, and all I can say is, when its done she is gonna be one mean rig. It does need to get off the jackstands and out on the trail though.... :D ... although he does have some decent excuses (4spd swap on the dually) Either way, now that my new tow rig is on the road, I'm all for wheelin as much as possible. Hell Im going to Badlands in 4 days. :D

    Midwest Blazer Bash 2005

    That sounds like a very cool idea.
    Of course, some of our Blazer guys now have S-10s, Suburbans and Jeeps though.

    Point taken: But all of them run full size components so we will call it :

    The Midwest Full Size Fest:p: :p:

    If dan needs to get off his porch, maybe he can help me put my TBI on after all this time, as he IS the expert.

    How about the "Midwest Neil better get his rig done Thing"

    This sounds like a good idea guys. I think we should get together - do an organized but not so organized event. Meaning, organize getting together and trail scouting, but do not have official prizes and such (unless someone wants to do this part). We just need to get together and wheel.

    Lets set a goal - pick a place and date. Before we pick the location, lets hear everyone's geographic location, post up your city and state and we will pick a place that is in the middle! Keep in mind, we want a park that is challenging yet doable for stockers if we have them.

    Libertyville, IL, im only 10minutes away from readymix. May have a friend with a K5 if he ever gets his license, have a friend with an 83 Longbed, a 85 Cj7, and if he doesnt sell it an 87 Ramcharger. I should be able to get one of the chevy guys to go. Readymix and his friends and mine can have a big convoy.

    I'd be up for a drive to some wheelin.
    Rockport or the cliffs sound good to me.

    How bout the "Midwest gotta have at least 1 GM part to attend Run"?
