It's that time of year again my fellow Midwest XKers. Most of us voted to take a trip to the Badlands in August and we are just a few weeks away so let's start voting on the weekend works best. We'll schedule a two night trip from Friday to Sunday to allow those that can make it some days but not others (I can only make Friday evening and all day Saturday) with the bulk of the riding during the day Saturday. Everybody place your votes and please tell others who expressed interest previously.

Woohoo!! I thought this had died. I am in, but if it's that last weekend that would make things much easier. Look forward to meeting everyone!

I vote 19th -21. I'm having minor surgical procedure the 25th but it wouldn't stop me from coming out that weekend either. I could probably also make it out the second weekend. Maybe not till Saturday though.

We're in. I voted for the 19th-21st but could make the later weekend. The kiddies go back to school the 23rd. I would like to head out early Friday afternoon and wheel all day Saturday. We're looking forward to meeting everyone.

There is a campground just outside of the Badlands with spots for primitive camping and full blown RC camping with electrical and water hookups. There is a hotel/motel not too far if you guys prefer a much more comfty night (I don't blame you considering the lovely weather we're having now). In the past we have done the primitive camping with tents and we have pretty much stayed up late sitting around a camp fire kicking back some cold ones while telling tales from the trails, good times.

That is what I would like to do, the old lady on the other hand, not so much. If I can pawn my boxers off with friends we can hook up the parents aluminum twinki and pull that thing down.

I'm going to try and make it. Been trying to get my jeep on some trails since I bought it. Don't think I can camp out but I can probably drive down early Sat and come back that night.

I guess I can do either one, I would just rather it be the last weekend. Are there enough trails to do two days, or is everyone getting in Friday, and heading out Sunday morning.

There are enough trails for one full day of wheeling but plenty of areas to play in to kill some time. I might show up late on Friday and set up camp then ride all day Saturday and come back home in the evening, I work Saturday nights otherwise I would stay for a second day of camping.

Right on, maybe I will do the same. One day on the trails would be a good time.

It would help to firm up a date. We will be needing to make hotel reservations and I'd like to get that done sooner than later.

I'm fine with that weekend, I'd mostly just like to set a solid date cuz i've got some other pending events but this one takes priority so I want to know when I can schedule the other stuff.

Hey guys, sorry i haven't had time to follow up with this but I've been very busy with work and personal life and I actually won't be able to make it. :( Can someone else take the lead on this and continue with the plans? Maybe post a new thread inviting others to join. Sorry! Hope you guys have fun and take lots of pics and vids for me.
