Yep. We can do that.

Will likely stay with the in-laws in Chenoa, IL on Saturday night and drive to Attica early Sunday morning.

What time are you thinking of meeting?


I'm not sure where Chenoa is.

Park opens 9am Eastern, 8am Central, I was planning on hitting the road between 5:00am and 6:00am to be there when the gates open. I'm flexible though just don't want to waste the morning. We can meet somewhere in the middle or meet at the gate.

I wanna see some pictures from this run. I'd be there if not for existing plans to visit my dad and grandparents in South Bend that day.

Have fun!

I had a great time, Yellow Coyote and IHateMyBike, I enjoyed meeting your family on Sunday.

I got the jeep cleaned up a bit, looks like I've got some new pin stripsl; lots of new growth, and the trails have not been trimmed back or seen heavy use yet. The new ownership seems to be putting a lot of effort into improving the park. Did notice that some trail grooming needs to be done, Lots of down timber, some of the smaller side trails off the green trail were blocked. Orange Trail entrance has been relocated up in the sand dunes. (we didn't run this one, just out exploring.)

Jamie, Thanks much for practicing your recover skills on me :shock: :shock: I got high centered three times, got a little complacent, didn't get out and look like I should have. First high center on everyones favorite rock in the middle of the stream, second, drove through the concrete V right before the tubes, and ended up on the sliders. Didn't check the depth of the water. Finally on what appeared to be a easy but muddy drop down into the steam, high centered on a root, no traction, lockers were no help. Yellow Coyote to the rescue. :D :D

I'll post some pictures when I get a chance this week.
