New to Chicago (Naperville)

Hey Ladies and Gents! I just moved here and I'm trying to see if there are any JKO'ers in the area???

Am I right side up or upside down?

Not too far off from you in Glendale Heights.

Sure my rig has seen the trail, but I wheel it like a soccer mom looking for a parking spot at Nordstroms.

Anywhere decent around here to do some wheelin'? Doesn't have to be nuts, just itching to get some mud on the tires.

Am I right side up or upside down?

It is a good thing that you live in the Chicagoland area, you have exactly "2" places to wheel your Jeep.

In Illinois you have The Cliffs Insane Terrain in Marseilles, Illinois and The Badlands Offroad Park in Attica, Indiana.

I'm planning a run down to The Badlands on 9-22 that you're welcome to join in. We're planning on heading down after work on 9-21 to camp the night, wheel that sat.

Sure my rig has seen the trail, but I wheel it like a soccer mom looking for a parking spot at Nordstroms.

I'm in Prospect Heights, and am also looking to meet others in the area to make some weekend trips.

Nicolet National Forest

It's been a while since I lived up there but for a weekend of wheeling and camping we would go to Nicolet National Forest in Northern Wisconsin. Its a drive so plan to make a weekend out of it.

The best part was we could go up and not see another person all weekend on the trails.

Sorry to hear that you had to move to this fucked up state. There are some spots in Michigan to wheel but badlands in attica is the best spot in the region with wooded trails, sand dunes, mud bogs, and rock crawling. They have a good mix of everything. The cliffs are very tight and I found my self having to back up all day long to make turns. I would avoid it if you have a 4 door. It is small and the trails are wooded and rather easy except for a couple of steep wash outs that run down to the creek. Expect mud there as well.

Some build info here:
