Default The Cliffs - October 13-15

As an alternative to the Halloweenie run, since it's cancelled, a few of us are looking at going to The Cliffs (www.thecliffsinsaneterrain.com.)

Any interest? If there is a decent turnout we will be giving away the prizes we had offered up for the Halloweenie run. However, this won't be an "organized" event since it's 10 days away.

We would love to see you guys out there.

If you give me enough time- I can maybe change a few things a meet you out there. I was planning on hitting the Badlands with Chicago4x4 on the 15th.

The Cliffs is a lot more fun with someone who knows the park well. I might even be able to set up some "special" things- PM me, and I will see what I
can do.

For everyone interested keep this in mind, taken from their list of rules.

Quote:
19. a 110' max. wheel base, 39 1/2 tire size strictly enforced.
dont want to deter people but i dont want people to get there and then find out

The wheelbase rule is mostly for the benefit of the rigs- the park is new, and still pretty tight. Extended cab Toys have been seen out there on occasion, but they have a tougher time avoiding body damage. It's possible that #19 can be waived in certain circumstances, but the park would have to be notified first. A LWB fullsize on 44s isn't going to cut it, however.

Talked to TNT4x4, the Trailmaster for the park, and we should be able to get a night run set up for $10/rig. I linked him to the thread, so maybe he'll chime in...

Are there any campgrounds in the area? My tow rig is a 33' class A RV. If not where's the nearest Wal-Mart?

I think my son and I are camping at the Illini State park since it's $10/night primitive $15/night modern and I believe it has showers and such. Unless somebody objects lets make this the official camp spot so we at least have a destination.

When I told the guy we would be arriving on a thursday he said we would be ok, i dunno if you camp much but most places are dead in October. I was planning on camping rustic but would get modern if it kept everybody together. We are leaving thursday around 5:00ish so we will be arriving late, like 11pm or better, so if anybody is there keep an eye open or grab some good sites.

Yeah I'm guess we'd be the only ones that would be stupid enough to camp in a tent this time of year :miff: . I was just going to do primative too. Me and Irishjeeper might leave around noon Thursday if we could get sites in a grouping.

Great, I'll make a rsvp. I'll be coming in on Friday. I've got to wait for my brother to get out of work so we will get in Friday late evening. I'll be staying in modern.
