Badlands Bash Convoy

Well I figured I'd ask it again on a new thread, and feel free to hijack this and find others to convoy with if needed.

I am heading to the bash on Friday and am leaving from Macomb, IL. I'll be driving East on Hwy 136 to Bloomington, IL where I switch to 55 North and then to 74 East. I'll take 74 East all the way to 41 North which will take me to Attica. If anybody is going to be along this route and wants to convoy with me let me know. I'd really appreciate another vehicle in case my baby doesn't make it like she should.

Here's the Mapquest map and directions for my route.

Re: Badlands Bash Convoy

mav_750, burnedbronco, and myself are convoying down thursday. Mav is leaving janesville wisconsin around 5pm and swinging down to vernon hills IL around 6-6:30, then were taking 94 to 294 to the dixie highway exit to pick up burnedbronco around 7:30-8pm, taking the back roads from his house off dixie highway to 394 which we'll take south to i think it's 17 to 2 to 41 to bypass all those stoplights on the northern part of 41 (look into this option anybody comming from the chicago area or furnter north). If anybody wants to meet up with us let me know. Leve could you make this post a sticky please. I'll send an e-mail out to every one going to the bash in a couple days letting you know details like where were camping, what the day's schedule is, basic safety stuff, how to get ahold of us if you have problems finding the camp ground or the badlands and some other info.

Re: Badlands Bash Convoy

Looks like I'm out...both CJ's are still down and now I have a scout camping trip that weekend (den leader, so I can't bail). Guess I'll catch some other run(s) over the summer.

Re: Badlands Bash Convoy

My Brother and I are leaving from Waukesha, WI early (7:00 ~ish~) Friday morning. Probably taking 41 all the way down. We'll see how the Jeep keeps up through Chicago. Not really sure of a better way from our neck of the woods so we are taking the safe way. Se you all there!

Re: Badlands Bash Convoy

My wife and I are coming down from Grand Rapids MI.
We will probably head down 65 to lafayette and then turn more directly south. Probably leave GR at around 4pm hope to be down there before it is too dark!

If anyone is coming from our direction, we will be happy to team up.


PS anyone have actual directions to steam corners? I know its on 41 and a state road, but I cant get the mapquest to like me.
