Before the 20th Anniversary Trail Ride was even over, I was being asked when we were going to host another one.

This time we will be having it at the Badlands Off Road Park in Attica Indiana:

https://badlandsoffroad.com/

Badlands describes itself as:

"The Badlands Off Road Park is 800+ acres of multi-directional, diverse terrain. You'll find sand dunes, wooded trails, gravel, mud, and rocks - trails and terrain for all types and skill levels of riders. Bikes and ATVs can test their skills on our full-size MX Track. SUVs, 4x4s, and Side x Sides can take on the challenges of our Rock Quarry/SUV Park. Regardless of your skill level, you will find riding perfectly suited for your abilities at The Badlands. And our emphasis on safety and no drinking & driving creates the perfect environment for families. "​

See you there!

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

I am hoping to have my '85 there... we will see how things work out.

By and large it is ready. Much closer than last year at this time anyway...

I was talking to a member who who hasn’t posted here since 2012. @steev (let’s see if he gets a notification email.)
... He’s in, but I guess that depends on the situation between now and then.

If this all clears up, we'll definitely have a reason to celebrate and wheel.

If this all gets cleared up by then... and being that every other thing I planned for this year has most likely tanked. I will be ready to get out of here for a few days... maybe even plan some salmon fishing after the event.

I guess if Eric will be there, I'll have to bring the wrangler to get him unstuck a few times... o|||||||o
I’m sure there will be a few of is that will need to be yanked out of the mud. It’s all part of the fun. I have a few recovery straps and some other stuff because I expect that I will be one of them.

So... I just added a flag to my Amazon order. I guess that means I'm committed...

Are we there yet?
