Mid-West Invasion Thoughts

We need to get together before winter sets in. HOOT has tossed out the idea of having a meet at Rush Offroad here in KY. Here is a link to their website.

http://www.rushoffroad.com/

However, I'm open to meeting just about anywhere.

Give us your thoughts and ideas as to where we should get together.

SMORR.net in Southern MO.... lots of fun!

Featured in more than one Ultimate Adventure with great facilities. Plenty of trails with drive arounds for obstacles... all but the Prissiest of Prisses can hit some trails!

In the evenings we can head to Springfield or Branson for plenty of cool touristy things!

I like it Hoot! I should have my QT chain installed next week so maybe I can take home the 10K. Surely an unmodified WT Cherokee could show those go kart guys a thing or 2...

I'm planning on swapping out my automatic trans with a T18 manual sometime in late August/ early September.... but if that gets delayed because of me not getting all the parts/ being too busy, I'd come out with you guys to someplace. I could do either of the places you guys are talking about. I've camped at Mammoth Caves before, very cool area!

Now it wasn't THAT bad. We did have a fire. I'd like to go back down there when the weather is nice.

That was the only fire I have seen where you could stand directly over and never get warm unless you were on the downwind side.
That would be the place to stay at if we go down to this event.

So do we want to make this a Thing. We need to look into reservations.

THIS POSTING IS NOT TO BE MADE INTO THE MIDWEST MEET. JUST INFO ON WHAT HAS BEEN POSTED PREVIOUSLY. MIDWEST INVASION WILL LIKELY BE IN OCT AT RUSH OFFROAD PARK.

PLEASE KEEP REPLIES ABOUT THIS POST IN THE OHIO VALLEY SECTION. http://www.ifsja.org/forums/vb/showthread.php?t=176471


I made my reservations today for Sept 18th and 19th (checking in fri afternoon and checking out sun am)at http://koa.com/campgrounds/horse-cave/
Me and the Roo Dog will be in a cabin roughing it. Come join us at the KOA..

If you have a KOA card it is buy one get one free nights. Pays for itself just to buy a card for this one weekend. They also give you another Buy1 get 1 weekend in May plus 10% off all stays through the year not to mention making reservations as easy as pie.

The racing is Fri evening and Sat am at Blue Holler. http://www.blueholleroffroadpark.com/

To give everyone time to get their schedules straight, I submit that we settle on meeting at Rush Offroad. Mid- October would be a good time to go there because the weather should still be nice. Not too hot,not too cold. They allow primitive camping onsite at the trail head.

Thoughts?
