Spring run for 2020... Thinking Badlands or Harpoles

Throw in your dates that work, locations if we want to try out a new place and get the buggies ready. All types of buggies, side x sides and quads are welcome.

I am going to try and get a couple individuals with the Textron XX to show up, in the talking stages now.

Looks like last year... Thursday May 16th 2019, was the day to arrive.
However, many did not get the memo and arrived Friday the 17th.

With that... does Friday May 15th, 16th and 17th of 2020 work for everyone?
If you would like to arrive the 14th for a pre-run...

I concur, that means I agree! Harpoles , Heartland Lodge,Nebo Ill. Riderplanet.com has all the info on this place and it looks good =D> . For a weekend Spring ride it has my vote! I'm thinking April 10th, since we have to consider the June ride at the Hatfield McCoy ride in June!

It should be a go for almost everyone in the midwest,and it just might be better than St Joe!!!!!!!!!!!
If I had a dollar for every time I heard that!!!

Surely they have camping, all I’m seeing is the fancy cabins though?
I’m planning a section hike on the AT in early April with a buddy, haven’t picked the week yet. Need to get on it.

Good idea on April 10th weekend.

Looks a little "uppity" compared to our usual sleeping arrangements.

watched the video... looks like a track around a field. Has anyone been to this location yet? Not too exciting... maybe on a craftsman lawnmower.

I don't think they have camping. Would have to stay at the lodge, or day ride and stay somewhere else. Bummer.

Looks like $30 per day to ride and buggy has to have IL ORV sticker which is $15.50?

Yeah, not cheap. Badlands wasn't much better.
