when you reserve the sites, the have a drop down box for selecting tent, camper, other :)

if it's like the other campgrounds, they give you a tag to put in your car, and they "patrol" to make sure all the people are "legit" :)

They also say you can have up to 6 people per campsight so thats why i was wondering if someone wanted to just split a sight with me.

trails.... kind of a strong word for gravel/B roads :)

remember, there's not any public offroad trails for full size vehicles in Iowa. they are all private land....

Not during this campout :)

The Iowa 4WD Association is trying to work with the DNR and state officials to try to find a place to create an ORV park for full size vehicles, and going in the illegal places you posted, does nothing but promote the bad image offroaders already have in some areas....

Feel free. I posted it in the NASIOC Midwest forum 2 years ago, and we had a few NASIOC folks show up at the last show-n-shine, but no campers....
I also posted it on the Nebraska-Subaru board back then...

I SHOULD be able to make one or two of thos days I will not really know till two weeks out. I might be inclined to have to split a sight (and cost) with some one since It will be a last minute thing.

Good question!
I have a bumper for you.. but you never got back to me.:rolleyes:

Mic what are you going to be driving? Also this would be a good time to pick up that motor.

I also have a factory air box if any one needs it and some fun top glass and stock alt.

okay bring the bumper. I can switch that out during the slow part of the day, and then my dog can chew up the old one as that is what the dog does.


I should have a weber by this event-maybe I will already have it installed, maybe this would be a learning experience for tuning it in.

well, even though I haven't been working on the '82 I'm planning on having it ready to drive to this... if not, It might not even be a soobie! I drive....

John, I'm getting the motor from my parents house this weekend, so that should be doable....

as far as parts I have for potential sale/trades...

BYB/Ozified EA81 lift kit (mostly complete)
rear disc brakes
27x9.50x15 SSR Swampers on drilled 6 luggers
14" Chome Alloy Genuine Subaru wheels
