    BE ADVISED THE DATES HAVE CHANGED FOR THIS EVENT.
    Because of input from many people outside of the OB community that are attending the dates have been change to accommodate others.

    The trip will begin at Buzzard Roost Recreational Area in the Hoosier National Forest and travels unpaved county roads all the way to The Indiana Dunes on Lake Michigan. The trip is designed to highlight many of the things that make Indiana a very special place. It is not a straight shot but a meandering route that stops at many historic, geological, culturally significance and quirky waypoints along the way. We will incorporate the natural resources of the Hoosier state by camping at many out of the way state parks. We will visit three off-road parks for those who want to flex their rigs a little more than others. There will be opportunities for volunteer work along the way to provide those that like a little stewardship with their adventuring. There will be opportunities for fishing, hiking, biking, kayaking and motorcycling as well. We will be stopping by the Hi Lift factory in Bloomfield for a tour as well.[​IMG]

    In the Evansville area. I'm keeping a close eye on this. I'm very intersted in getting to one of these events to meet people with similar interests and this sounds like it could be a great one. I'm looking forward to seeing more details.

    I'm interested in this trip too. I am new to off-road and would like to travel/learn with a group. I have a question about the route. I tow a teardrop camper that is not set up yet for too much off-road. It's on 12" wheels that will be one of my future changes. My vehicle can handle much more. I was hoping I could pull the teardrop on this trip but I can leave it behind and tent camp. You rated this as 'easy' so I was wondering if the teardrop was possible. Peace
