Re: Superlift Adventure, Badlands, IN
IMHO - very expensive for what you get. Unless you just want to go to see the other's rigs and watch the hardcores, you will get as much good wheeling and hanging around if you plan your own weekend trip with friends for about 1/3 of the cost.
Badlands has fun trails... also some big mud holes as well as some rock areas to play if you are into those. The food is decent and all you can eat. They have a cool raffle of great parts. Tons-o-cool Jeeps & other rigs to drool over. Tons-o-hardcores to watch on the wild stuff.
I went two years ago when on-site camping was still allowed. We had a blast. It rocks to sleep on the hood of your Jeep, wake up with the sun, hit some trails on the way to breakfast, wheel all day - repeat. However, that was the year some guy went out at night and rolled his truck. He was unbelted and sustained a broken back. Also was a big problem with vehicles straying off Badlands Property into farmers fields. Story has it that the Badlands owner took much flack over this.
Last year, no on-site camping. This stunk... half the fun is camping on site (to me at least). Also security and 'crowd control' were much more strict - to handle the "tear it up and don't respect anything idiots"...not alltogether a bad thing. Everything else was about the same. Not as much fun mostly due to the camping thing.
I don't plan to go this year.
