    I think I'm going to make the trip to Attica to run the Badlands trails over the last weekend in May. I just bought General Blueball's old rig and after some minor repairs, should be ready to run. Just seeing if there's any interest in meeting some ck5ers out that way and having some sort of group. This will be my first run out of the box and driving in a couple years so there will be plenty of opportunity to poke fun at a country boy!

    I think a bunch of people are going on a different weekend, but this one works best for me. Dan and I will be out there May 30, 31, and June 1st. We'd like to get at least one more rig to hit trails with!

    hey, are you going out there this weekend AND the big one? We're thinking about backing down from the 30th weekend....finances are tight for both of us. Let me know if you're locked in or what?

    Either way I am going to be in Indiana, either my rig deep in some bottomless pile of goo, or at the Indy 1500 Gun show...1500 tables...gonna take daze to go through all of em!!

    My rig must be pissed at me. Nothing is broken (that I can see) and it don't leak ANYWHERE. It starts great and runs great. Hell it even is cleaned out and ready to go!! Hell, I can't even get it dirty!! My car is getting all the dirt!! /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    So, up to you people. I got the itch and my Blazer is not being a bitch and so should I go pull a Ford out of the ditch to get muddy as ...um....someone finish that off!!

    Thats where I'll be! Usually 3 hours to check most all of it out and hit the good tables again.

    Since you live in Indy maybe you can give me some links to all your gun laws? Looking at purchasing something and want to do it the right way? Is indy a cash n carry state or is there a bunch of crap to go through? Maybe we should meet up and meet another K5er!!

    I don't think anyone went. I went with my club in Champaign to another little place and buried my rig. Actually got some body damage to my rocker panels!! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
