It's actually "randolph offroad park" if you can find Randolph on a map, mapquest, whatever, you can find the park..it's just down the road, and has signs.

I've been there once, last fall, i just havent had time/moeny to go lately, i'd rather put time/money into getting new equipment, thatn spending it on gas, and fixing stock parts...just my view on things i guess

There is a BIG meet and greet, called the "kansas krawl", more info is on their homepage...its like 10 dollars to enter, its a drug/alcohol free event, for faimly, and its a 2 day event, fun stuff! I dont think i'll be able to make it, it'll depend on when i go to Basic training, I find out when i go the sunday after this one, if i leave for basic prior to the kansas krawl, i wont be able to be going anywhere till next spring/summer after tech school, etc, etc.

Got any more info/pics of your build?

I was going into Airforce reserves, then the recruiter was a wanker, wouldnt trafvel to meet, if tehre was a question i had, he'd take 3 days to respond, etc, etc..it just wasnt worth my time trying to weed through his crap

so, i knew a gaurd guy locally whose a SGT, so i talked to him, got in contact with the recruiter, and it's night and day difference, he's a cool guy, and travels to me, meets with me, calls back asap, etc..

I'm going in as a helicopter pilot, with the hopes in 6 years, if i feel like reinlisting, to go to officer training, then to try to get accepted for pilot school. What are you in for? I go to MEPs in KC this sunday to figure out when i go to basic n stuff.

go to superford.org and register for an account, then create a vehicle...then add pictures, pretty self explanatory when you get in there

Helicopter Pilot...........right on , I joined the Marine Corps hoping to become a Helicopter Pilot...needless to say I fell in love with infantry and never followed through...(actually I proly never would've made the cut...lol). My recruiter promised me I'd have enough time to get a degree while serving my time....needless to say if I had 2 minutes of free time some higher echelon would come along and erase it. OH well, at least I'm getting money for school now. I had another buddy who joined the Army, got his O-commission, even got accepted into flight school. Ended up found out his girl was pregnant same week he got accepted and never followed through. Now he's some supply officer in the reserves here in town. I should kick his ass for not doing it.........matter of fact---now that I'm thinking about it.........................
You'll like the Army, just stay motivated and make the best out of your experience. You'll meet lots of Gomer's, and lot's of guy's who would sell both thier nuts for you, as you would them. Don't get disgruntled at the "non-rates", it's everyone's job to make them better. Help them out and you'll become a better person along the way. Did I mention stay motivated? Congrat's on joining the Army (even though it's not the Marines....lol) and THANK YOU ahead of time.

the main reason i chose gaurd was becuase i knew people, and they had a field i'd be interested in, in the Aircraft i was looking for airplane maitence/pilot like the army, but...the aircraft recruiter was horrible to say hte least, and he's in wichita, and wouldnt drive a bit to save me from my 3hr long drive one way....I also would have had to go to wichita 1 weekend a month, now i just will go to salina, 1/2 the gas, and, as SRaTEX has figured out, it's easier to become a helicopter pilot than airplane...so...

yeah, that would be a long drive. About the M&G, I was trying to make it a no big deal sort of get together drink some beer and hang out a bit. Nothing to crazy or serious......but we can always leave that open. I don't know about anything up at Tuttle and I won't be able to get up there for at least another couple months anyhow, but maybe next summer it might be pretty cool to plan some sort of get together up there. If anyone's interested maybe we could start some posts and do a little planning. Maybe start making it a yearly sort of deal. Before long it would be bigger than the Rubicon........but I won't hold my breath on that one.

I started another thread about the FTE's lake day up at Tuttle the third weekend in September. The Trail Krawlers are having a big event at Tuttle that weekend also. I have heard they charge $35 to attend. Doesn't cost anything to attend FTE's lake day deal.

If anyone would like to make it up they are welcome. I don't have a link for Trail Krawlers but I posted a link for the FTE Lake day on the post for this.

Just got my bronco the other week. I am from kansas City but am currently in Manhattan for school. Oh yeah and I have the bronco up here at K-state. So if there are any events that are on the weekends put them up I wanna try out the bronco. Or if anyone knows of any trails that would be good for a stock bronco to get it's trial run out in the manhattan area that would be good too.

We have a run on the 17th and 18th of September. It's listed in this section under another thread as FTE Lake Day. Your welcome to join us.

What tires are you running? Some off highway trails (like some up at Tuttle OHV Area) can be hard on tires. You really need a good truck tire. P rated (passanger car) tires are 4 ply and designed for a soft ride on streets and don't fair well up there. Tow points front and rear is something else you should have. I have straps and a winch, but you need to have a place to hook them to. Other than that you should be fine.

A cb radio is nice to have so we can talk to each other. I have a couple of hand helds. GMRS radio's are another option. I have a couple of those but they don't have the range of the CB.

Check out the link for the FTE Lake day on my other post. That's where all the planning will take place for this run. You can find pictures of Tuttle on my web site. And maps also. Just received permission to post another map on my site so I'll load it with the other ones on my site tonight.

Hope to see you there. Looks like we are going to have a cook out and camp also. Your welcome to join us for that also.

I have BFG 31" tires I am not sure on the rating but they are fairly beefy tires. What CB Channel do you all use. I have a cb I just need to find a better place to mount it. right now it just sets on my passenger seat when I use it. I have a stock bronco with the 351 I only got it 3 weeks ago so it is fairly new to me and I haven't had time to get a winch or alot of the stuff that I would like to put on it. On the tuttle creek event would I be able to wheel even without these things or am I at a high risk to get stuck? If you think that the bronco will make I will come on down and if you don't think that it will i might still come down to check it out, get some ideas for my Bronco.
