Default Badlands April 25+26....what do we not wanna miss?

We were suppose to be going to Flat Nasty but 3/4 of the group bailed leaving just two of us so we are just going to the Badlands instead since neither of us has been. What are the must see, must do trails / features? Two built rigs...tons, lockers, 40-42's, ect, ect.

Also if anyone wants to tag along, a few more rigs would be great.

Yes, they can usually set it up through the main office. Going to need more than 2 rigs or pay alot per person I would imagine.

That's what i suspected.

Like i said, we had a large group assembled and we were going to flat nasty...but do to some unfortunate medical issues a bunch of people cancelled so that leaves just two of us. Seemed pointless to go all the way to flat nasty with just two so this is our backup plan

I'd call and ask the front desk at the badlands to set it up. One of the best trips i've been on was the badlands with mission impossible. At least inquire about it.

Competitions hold no interest for me. I have no desire to tow my stuff up there to only wheel a small fraction of the weekend.

You can wheel all weekend at the Extreme truck challenge. Another vote for mission impossible though if you can get into it. It's blast and better than anything else at the park.

What i meant is: As a competitor your day is planned for you....you have to be certain places at certain times and there is a lot of hurry up and wait while you await your turn or the next event or whatever. As a spectator you are have to contend with closures of certain parts of the park for the event. Add to that the fact that even if i did enter i stand absolutely 100% no chance of even coming close to placing well and it's just sorta pointless to me. Comps are cool...but not my thing.
