36 married, no curtain crawlers...yet.
Spent better part of last 20 years working on lake Monroe in Bloomington. Well acquainted with the Charles Deam wilderness which is the only wilderness area in the Hoosier state, unfortunately. There are miles of overgrown two track, problem is the powers that be let horses and hikers have them, no mountain bikes, not motorized vehicles, I see both sides. All of that been said there are a few gravel roads to nice spots in the "Deam" and "yellowwood" st forest. We hike, kayak and boat quite a bit in that area and there is allot of outdoor adventure to be had even if traditional overlandig opportunities are lacking.
I am always happy to answer any questions on the area.
Just moved a hour away but always looking for a excuse to get back, do not despair Indiana residents, there is a wilderness here.
Rides-
01' jeep xj- just sold.
13' f150 4x4 super crew- just bought
12' Mini Countryman all4

Looks like a dead thread, but i'll join in the fun.

I've told her already. I'm pretty straight forward and too blunt at times. It's just how I am. But none the less I am committed to her. I'm not here looking for a date. Maybe in search of a Bromance. Hell your Facebook future said we were destined to get married LMAO! No homo!

Hello everyone! I was born and raised in Indiana for the first 18 years before I joined the USCG and stationed in DE. My family lives in Fishers and Carmel so I visit home a couple times a year. I drive a H3 that I outfitted for offroad traveling (posted a build thread about it). I'm trying to get my paretns into Overlanding and off-roading since they always talk about it. They own a new anniversary edition 2015 jeep jku rubicon with every option available from the factory, with the exception of the cigarette lighter(kind of jealous about the electronic sway bar disconnect on it). Do you guys do any trail runs? I'll bring my rig to help coax them into going with theirs. I just need to figure out when I'll be back in that area.

You aren't related to an Eli Etter here in Indiana are you? I think he lives in the Delphi/Lafayette area now.
I don't think I'm related to them. I do have some extended family that lives around that area. I won't be able to make it out to the June run because of summer classes but I'll let my dad know. I'll try and get him on the forum and apart of the group!
