We had a good time at Haspin. I don't know about it with the thaw though, it was really mudddy in the middle of the winter! I always see these jeep trails on the way to Nebo Ridge in Hoosier National. One time when I was riding my bike, a few jeeps came down the trail I am talking about. I think we may need to link up with some one familiar with these trails just to be safe. [Uh Oh !] "Dueling banjos" [Uh Oh !]
They are pretty crazy looking (rutted, muddy) I guess I would be okay with Badlands.

OK so there is at least 3 of us going. 1 ( me-to get stuck) and 2 for recovery. smile

Let's hope I don't explode another diff. They might not warranty this one. I'm planning on taking it easy this run.

So same place (upper parking lot), same time (around 9:A.M. attica time).

Anybody else want to jump on the bandwagon?

I'm on the bandwagon. I'll be there, upper p-lot, 9am. Roger that.

Randy, not sure if I'll make the drive with you or not, I might be out of town the night before, and just go straight to the badlands from there. I'll let you know later in the week.

I'm all for taking it easy... (but don't I say that every trip....)

Anyone else coming with?

Lawrence,

Did you get those 32s on there yet? Hope so, cause the rest of us voted, and you're leading through any water.

:p

Someone bring a camera for pic of the week!
Mike, yep, 32's are on, so i think everyone's riding on them now. Um, the X plans to stay functionable, so no deep water! Especially as cold as it's supposed to get, and you know better than anyone of us what that's like. smile Are you gonna bring your bike? I will if you will.
Pinoy, did you get your money and write up from me yet? I hope so, the Idler arm brace is already on, and the tie rods are packed.
Rob, I wouldn't mind a HNF ride sometime, X's or mountain bikes. I had found some trails there too once, but the group I was with wanted to camp and not wheel. We ended up hiking neebo instead. Went back later and couldn't find the other jeep trails. oh well.

Yes, got it in the mail yesterday. BTW, Thanks for the info.I'd bring my bike but got to much carp in the truck already (can't fit it in). My spare MT hasn't come in yet from discount tire so I've got stockers as spare for now. mad It's rainning cats & dogs over here and looks like it's headed that way so plan on it being really muddy.
I'll see everybody there. [Wave]

It's been raining here in indy since lunchtime.. it's going to be a mudfest, but that is an OK thing.

L, I don't think I'll bring the bike with how muddy it will be. Next time we get a dry-run, I'll bring the bike. wink

see ya'll at 0900.

drive safe!

Sorry I didn't make it - I had to go out of town on Saturday for work. Let me know how it went. I guess this is the second run I have initialized and bagged on.... :rolleyes:

The run was pretty good. We still seem to be breaking things on a regular basis... we need to work on that. confused

We had 3 Xs show, and we did have a pretty good time. Attica was about as dry as I have ever seen it. I guess they didn't have any of the rain that we did here in indy.

However, the tubes are still something to stay away from. I walked down to "the spot" just to take a little stroll down not-so-pleasent-memory-lane. Some of the quad guys asked if we were thinking about going through. I said no. He said good, cause it's about 6 ft deep now. eek apparently they tried to fill it in, but it just keeps washing out.

All in all, we had a good time, even though I'll be cleaning sand out of the X for a while.. (and gravel off the hood, lawrence!!! )

laugh

Someone at work that lives over our way, Trials, said they say a yellow X driving down 38th and it was covered in mud! I told him it was probably you and about our run last week-end. Thanks guys for the tug. Everything still works that I can tell, cleaned the K&N and so far no probs. Sorry 'bout the gravel, and boy that sand was fun.
Joe, pics? I guess when you get the chance...

Sent you guys each a cd with the pics. yesterday. You should be getting them in the next couple of days. Someone post Lawrence doing his balanceing beam act. laugh

We rode the creek (dropped in after the tubes) and finally got our revenge on that damm hill at the end. Placing our tires inches away from the side of the cliff (after the hillclimb/creek) was a major adrenaline rush!

I'm thinking that noise is coming from the front axleshafts from the prior run when I messed up the diff. just never looked into it. this was the first time I used 4 wheel drive since then. Opened the diff. cover and gears look good, opened the manual hubs and they look good also. axelshafts are the only thing not replaced since.

Yes the curse continues still can't seem to brake the 3 Xterra record, Oh almost forgot to mention, Takeabreath gave out free matchbox Xterra's to everyone that showed up on this run. cool (my newest mod!)

Glad to hear the truck is O.K. I had a blast!!!
Just one question, I thought we were going to take it easy on this trip. [LOL]

TrailX -- I forgot to ask you. Where did you get that cool level guage at?

hey guys, i'll soon probably join you on some of these runs. I just got a 2002 SE S/C and i'm modding it up a little bit. I was just wondering how hard Badlands is. Would it be doable for a first time off-roader?

Sure - As long as you take off your mud flaps and step rails you should be fine!

nice. I know badlands is in the area, but what are some other local trails. I know that there's Silver Lake or somethin, like a sand trail in MI, but other than that I have no idea.

I think next time we should go to Haspin Acres - I hate to start another run thread since I have a knack of never making it. :rolleyes: Anyone else want to start one?

I got my level gauge (inclinometer) from four wheel drive. It's a jeep catalog, but they had what I wanted.

No kidding! LOL! I will be running to attica some time next month. Doing quarry and green trail testing out the new ride once I get it back together. I will keep you all posted.
