Oh, a month has come and gone and my ride is still in pieces. I'm gonna try my butt off to make it down at some point. My 3 little ones have 3 different school schedules, so between covid and busting and everything else I'm just hoping I can get alot done in the next couple days and not miss this. Seems like it may sprinkle a little friday ? Maybe itll keep the dust down !!!

I am really late to this party. I just learned about the event this week. I am trying to free my schedule. Are there any sites left? Is Van's site 34 still available?

My Trooper is still down with a blown head gasket. So, I will be in my Tan 2WD GMC Canyon. I plan to just bring a tent. I can stay Thursday through Saturday. I hope to get on the road from Atlanta by noon tomorrow. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I can handle the camping stuff. I will have cash for the Friday Dinner. I will miss the Saturday dinner.

Check https://www.recreation.gov/ for camping
A 2wd canyon is only going to do well on 1 maybe 2 trails. When its super dry, yes but we have had rain lately.
Not trying to push you away but You may be better off riding with someone on trail rides instead of taking a 2wd out.

Yes. I totally agree on the 2WD issue. I would love to grab a seat with someone for the trails. I need to learn so much about how to work the trails. I would also love to ride in a diesel rig. That is my long term built plan. I am up for anything including being a runner to pickup trash along the way. I am also part of the JNJ shot test group guinea pigs. So far so good.

I checked the Res. website. It looks like site 31 still shows FF. I will call them up later today. What are the chances it will be open by 6pm on Thursday?

While Mike may have a hissy fit over this....Mud truck come on over to group camp C we had a couple people.cancel so we have a space for a truck and tent. Since a majority of us are there you will def be able to find a seat to ride the trial w. Mike won't be there til Thurs afternoon so hopefully that works for you. I posted the exact Google maps coords in a previous comment.

Well the boss reminded me that the deal was to get her car back in the garage before the Summer. So, that means I need to finish the 56' Farmall that is in her spot before I get back to the Trooper.

So, I guess I will just make plans to see everyone in the Fall as well. My Trooper should be back on the road by then. Lord willing.

Thanks you so much for finding space for me. I am sorry to cycle you guys short notice.

Peter,

Type "Badin Lake Group Camp" into google. It pops right up.

Practically speaking, when you are coming in from Eldorado Outpost and you reach the end of the paved road where you normally would turn left onto the gravel road headed towards Arrowhead, you instead turn right. Then a short distance later take the first left. Group camp is up on the right.

I am headed out on my final errand run before we leave. I'm about 3/4 packed and am sure I have forgot 3 important items that I will remember half way there. I also have probably twice as much stuff as necessary. lol Headed to the butcher to pickup the steaks, the farmers market for the veggies, and the pharmacy for drugs to offset this damn pollen... I miss being able to breath.

Hope to be at camp b 5pm tonight.

Brother Nate,

I hate that you will not be on the trail for me to follow and loose 3 years off my life from the smoke coming from your Trooper... :lol:
I do look forward to dinner Friday night. I will make a big pot of Brown sugar Bacon Bourbon Baked Beans for the group as my contribution.
