Introductions & Chit Chat: Keep it Clean

Hey all; new to the forum but not new to Jeeps. I am from Indiana (NW Indiana but try not to associate with Chicago). Currently have a 97 TJ with 4" lift, a 14 JK Rubicon (both sticks). Just got rid of an 01 XJ with about 4.5" of lift and had an 01 TJ with 2" lift. Have been off-roading in the Indiana Badlands off-road park for several years and also other places like the Land between the Lakes Turkey Bay and the Cliffs Off Road park. Decided its time to get the JK out and do some real off roading and sight seeing. My wife and I are hoping to be out in the area in mid-august and hit up some trails. Maybe next year we will be able to do the Dakota Challenge or the Jeep Jamboree although due to allegeries the wife has a restrictive diet so not sure how that plays into things.

Anyways thanks for the add and hope to get to know some of the members and learn about the trails before we make it out that way.

well....don't know anyone from Hammond, but I have delivered Jays potato chips there and i once saw Lemmy play at the civic center when he was with Hawkwind. I'll go wheelin if i'm not stuck doing something else. Recommend going to the Challenge, really a great way to hit all the trails with a great group.

It looks like we will miss Sturgis by about 4 or 5 days. Will it still be really busy that close to the Rally?

It will be pretty busy, best to get hotels or campsites ASAP as they tend to get pretty full the week before and the week of the rally. Fun time to be in this area though!

Thanks Axleater - I guess that explains the high prices. will have to see what I can find that is reasonable or maybe it will have to be put off a year.
