No rules broken.......but to attend, it would require that people on this forum actually wheel.

Ah, gotcha...well my sister lives in Fort Wayne so I'm probably just gonna crash at her place but thanks for the recommendations. Now as far as people attending: not too many people on here have committed yet, but there are a ton of peeps on http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=602405 that are going, I think its close to 40+ now. I am definitely going and I'm rollin in my rig in my pic with me, you?

my sister and her family live about an hour south of ft. wayne (and my wife is from ft. wayne - so we go there to visit family sometimes).

ft. wayne is a little far for me to stay - it is probably 2.5- 3 hours away easily.

i'll trailer my tj. i have a crew max tundra.. so i get a better gas mileage towing the jeep than if i drive it and it is 100% more comfortable.

i'll show my wife the link - and get back with you.. we're going to be going to drummond or badlands... soooo we'll need to decide soon.

This is from the President of JGW...update on the event (from http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showt...=1#post5787054)

"Ok...Sorry about the wait...And, I know everyone is eager to know what's going on.
I have been doing a lot of planning and here's the plans ( for now )

In the morning on the 18th of Sat everyone will meet at the top parking lot by the office around 10:30 to 11:00am & get their jeeps/rigs ready for our runs.

At the lower parking lot we'll have 2 line ups for the trails. These line ups will be group A and group B. We'll try to have equal amounts of jeeps/rigs per group. Once we have our groups lined up...Group A will depart at 12:00pm and start their trail run. Once group A has departed group B will soon depart at 12:30pm. Doing this will leave a gap between each group so, hopefully there won't be a huge line to go on the trails.

We'll be running "The Creek" and our "Haunted Trail" that we designed for Our Club and for the Badlands. Our group will run "The Creek" first then go stright into our "Haunted Trail"

*These 2 trails 100% stock jeep can run along with built jeeps and rigs*
*We'll have Trail Leaders in the front, middle and the back through out the runs and can & will help anyone who needs help with anything while on the trails*

Once both groups get done with the trails we'll end up at the "Rock Quarry". This is a place where everyone can pratice and play with their jeeps and rigs. By the time we are at the "Rock Quarry" the time should be around 1:30pm to 2:00pm. Everyone can stay around and play or can leave and get some lunch.

When we are done playing at the "Rock Quarry" we'll all head back to the lower parking lot. At 3:00pm we'll hand out an award for the Best Dress Halloween Costume, Pass Out Candy, Have a Raffle and we'll have our 50/50 also known as Split the Pot.

After we have done that, Everyone is welcome to explore and enjoy the park.

Our Club invites everyone to join in and enjoy our "Haunted Trail" for Halloween. We'll just be running 2 trails for this event and everyone is welcome to go on other trails as they wish. If you do not wish to stay for our costume contest, split the pot & raffles thats ok with us and you can enjoy the park. But, We do thank you for joining in our trail run.

This will be a awesome time to have fun and enjoy Our "Haunted Trail" and get to meet our friendly Club Members and other jeepers.

So, Please join in and have a Blast with Our Club.
We'll assuse you that you will have an Awesome time.

Thank You,
Michael
Club President

*Note* Some plans may change so, keep a look out for some updates."
