redbird wheeling trip feb 27th

looks like we might get 2 inches of snow but this trip is rain or shine so don't bail out. we went up to badlands in jan and had some snow on the ground and was about 12 degrees. couldn't of had more fun. looks like it will be warmer at least

i wanted to post up and let everyone know that about 5 to 10 of us will be wheeling down at redbird offroad park on sat the 27th. it is located near linton indiana. i think we are meeting around 9:00 sat morning. if you want to go post up here or pm me and i will give you more details. this should be a fun trip and may be mud or snow but i am sure it will be fun. it is 10 bucks for all day and the trails are well marked. there will be one or two stock jeeps so no matter what you have done or haven't done to your ride it will be welcomed. should be a good time so lets get some members together. don't tell me it is to far cause there are guys driving 5 hours to come. so unless you are farther than that no excuses. looking forward to the run thanks.

here is a link to the redbird website for address and directions.

http://www.redbirdsra.com/

If you will be attending post up and I will add you to the list.

Park opens at 9 so that will be the meeting time. 10 sharp will be when the group rolls out for the trails.

CB channel will be 13.

Saturday Feb 27th

this is the list i have so far. some of these are members of, you know, that other forum but still good guys and gals and jeepers just the same.

I have heard about McCaslin and the pipeline up north in WI. none of which I have personally been to. I havent been on any "trails". I am used to friends places with fields and mudholes.

there will be a few stock jeeps so you won't be alone. 10hrs is a long drive but it will be fun. there are a few people staying in terre haute at the super 8 if you want a room near by i would recomend the pear tree inn. for 10 bucks more you can live without the cockroaches lol. i am not sure who all will be wheeling on sunday but i think some might be.

As this would be my first time wheeling, I have not purchased winch, straps, cb or anything yet. I am more than stock, 3'5" lift with 1" body, 35" mt'rs and anti-rock. No recovery gear though.

Would I be welcome or shunned? I guess it depends on if I get hung or not....

You will be perfectly fine then. Everyone you are going with will have recovery gear and winches so if you get in a bind they will be there to help you out.

Floyds Knobs, Straight down 65 around Exit 6 and a bit west. Heard Interlake is kind of close by as well, maybe 1 hourish away out 64W. Just moved up from FL. Never wheeled there. Life got in the way too much....

Damn, i was planning the trip when my girlfriend came in and said we have other obligations on sunday... I would have to make a daytrip out of it and it's too far for that.. So i'm bailing out. Better luck when it's in west-Michigan someday...

I almost had a completely free weekend, but my wife cancelled a trip to Louisville with her mother. Will have to see if we have the day free. Don't have a CB, unfortunately, but would like to check Redbird out.
