Al,
What dates do you think you would be in the campground in September. Jessie and I would be interested in going then.
Thanks Bill

Re: Nominations for Club President

It certainly appears that it is time for a change. I do appreciate the work the officers put in on behalf of the club. I would love to be able to step up and volunteer to be an officer, but the seasonal demands of my job would force me to miss over half the meetings. I agree that changing the monthl...

Re: Big Trip 2019

After looking forward to this trip for a long time, I am very disappointed to say that Jessie and I are not going to be able to go with the group. Our plans to get our daughter moved to college later in the month have fallen through so hopefully next year.

Hot Springs ORV Park March 1-3 2019

Jessie and I are planning a wheeling trip to Arkansas for three days of wheeling in the park next to Hot Springs. I have heard several good things about this park and they have three trails that are part of the Badge of Honor program. They have a campground with cabins that are part of the park. If ...

Re: Memorial Day weekend

I think the main reason to register early is in hopes of getting the trail ride you want. I belong to the Western Illinois Jeep Club as well as this club. The WIJC does a lot to help with trail prep and trail rides so I will be there to help.

Re: Big Trip 2019

Some of the people who are going on the trip requested I do some research on the trails in Colorado. I used the Funtreks and Trailsoffroad website to look at a lot of the trails near Granby, Estes Park and Central City. I have also talked to some people that go out there every year. Most of the trai...

Re: Labor Day weekend Land Between the Lakes VS Blue Hollar

Meeting for breakfast sounds like a good idea. It does not look like there are very many restaurants open for breakfast. Cindy's on the Barge is open for breakfast and on the way to the park. Would meeting there at 8:30 work?

Re: Labor Day weekend Land Between the Lakes VS Blue Hollar

A heads up for those of us staying in the Aurora Oaks Campground. They are having a end of year potluck Saturday evening that gets started around 5pm. Last year they asked for people attending to bring a dish to pass. I did not know until I checked in so I was not very well prepared last year. The c...

Me and Greg (2004 Rubicon) are staying in the Aurora Oaks campground. Two of my adult children are also coming with their offroad rigs and are staying at Aurora Kentucky Lake Cottages in the hotel part. They also have cottages for rent.

Re: Big Trip 2019

I have found a couple campgrounds closer to the lodge. One is about 20 miles north and the other is about 30 miles west and north a bit. What are the dates you have booked the lodge so I would know what dates to try to reserve camping.
Thanks

Re: Big Trip 2019

If we are able to go we would like to camp with our teardrop. Preferably a campground with electric hookup and on site showers. I can look into nearby campgrounds for this. A month ago I booked the KOA in Central City, 30 miles west of Denver, for this August and all of their cabins were already ful...

I just talked to someone in the visitor center and he said they have had about 3" rain and it is letting up this morning. He does not anticipate they will close Turkey Bay this weekend since the rain came steady.
