Not sure at this point in time. The 5 probley won't be ready. I do have all the parts,but, Vic and I are spending the 20th thru the 29th on the beach at Tybee Isl. in Geogia. So that only leaves me 4 days to set everything up. The good jeep is a possibility though. I would be in big red and camping. I'm thinking arrive on friday. wheel sat, and sun, come home monday.Don't know about Vicki, Al, call me at your convenience.

It is likely that I'll go, but would not arrive until Saturday night or Sunday morning, play all day Sunday, camp overnight and come home Monday.

Thinking about going... Bradley has classes on Monday, so I'd go Friday night and come back Sunday evening. I'd like to camp... what is the camping situation there? Is there something nearby or at the park itself?

I am interested in going, this will be my first adventure with the club and my Jeep. I am about complete on the Jeep, so anxious to get to using it. I would like to tag along with someone. Want to get to know a few people, basically get familiar with how the club operates on outings. I would appreciate any help I can get..I plan on leaving Friday and am flexible on coming back Sunday or Monday, I will probably camp there. ..thanks..I plan on coming to the hog eat on the 28th...

Probably gonna be going. There is a state park that is about 15 min from the park that we have stayed at before. Pretty nice place. I will be going over on Friday and coming home sometime before work on Tuesday. As for camping, it is no reservations, so those who get there early may need to get spots for those who will be showing up late.

Since I've never been there before, I'd like to caravan with someone if possible. When is everyone planning on leaving on Friday? We would probably not be able to get out of Peoria until after Carrie gets off work at 5.

Also, any group food plans, or just eat out locally?

Looking forward to trying out my new axle gearing, fuel injection and a new park.

Dave, I was planning on leaving friday. at 11am. Are you camping or staying at the no tell motel. I will be camping. I could leave later if someone could reserve a camp site for me. I guess we would need food for sat and sun morning. Sat night would mabye go get pizza. and cook something simple sun night. AS I remember its 3 hours and 48 min. 216 miles hours from B'ville. I will do breakfast Sunday morning, and work on something for sunday night (possibly chilli cheese dogs and chips)
A for certian head count would be great!

I was thinking we'd camp Friday night for sure, and if we end up getting really dirty we might hit the motel for Saturday night. Otherwise camp again, do a bit of wheeling on Sunday then head back after lunch.

Your meal plans sound good to me.

Don't forget Indiana is a hour head of us. Also, there are good showers at the camp ground. I will be in big red with AC for anyone wanting to do a clothes change. Don't forget flipflops for the shower. Possible scattered showers for thursday otherwise-

Max, I don't want to make you wait around for us until 6:00 to leave. No sense in all of us setting up tents in the dark. :D Where is the campground we normally stay at? Is it at the off-road park or somewhere else?

The first link is the campground that we stay at. Nice place, though kind of a pain to find the first time. I am almost 100% sure I will be there, just not sure yet when I will be getting there.
