Talking Iowa meeting

Ok It's pretty much summer time. Who would be interested in a Iowa meeting in or around the Des Moines- Ames area or may be somewhere else that would work out better for everyone planing on attending. Say some time in the next couple of months.

Tell me where and I'll work it in, but I think we'll have to see who all check in and where from, try to make it as equal as we can. Of course, SE works for me.... Maybe could catch a time I'm passing through, drop the trailer, have a little fun, I can do this...only have at least 3 runs to South Dakota to get done in the next month or so, but have to finish the trailer first. Ah hell, I got all the time in the world!! Oh yeah, got an 18 month old that thinks otherwise!!! My time is hers, just ask her !!!!!!! I can't help too much out that way as far as setting things up, my contacts are largely in the eastern side. We've got a few out that way that have been showing up, so how bout it guys? Depending on what all we would do and need, county fairgrounds are generally easy and cheap to reserve, State fairgrounds is getting to be too much of a PITA to deal with. Anamosa I know has a mud bog, and there's some down around here in the SE corner, but I know it's a long ways for the guys out west.Ideas?

well the anamosa Mud bog was mentioned, and I live in south central IA, so willl mention the cprmud drags in reasoner Iowa (just south of newton) we race there on the first sunday of every month, also I have 5 acres between knoxville, and chariton on Hwy 14 it needs mowed but we could use it as a camping spot for a group to get together its not really big enough to do alot of wheeling and camping but would be a ok place for everyone to get together, just an offer.

Depending on the date , I think I can talk the boss into letting me go.
I kinda like the idea of the 5 acres between K'ville & Chariton.
Can't do any 4 wheeling with the 2WD FO_D , but can haul plenty of beer & my dog! LOL

BTW , I'm in Dallas County.

hey, what do you guys do at your meetings? work on trucks or just BBQ and that kind of thing?

I just picked up a 92 F150 5.0 5spd 4x4 with a 4 inch lift and 35's

I am looking to unload the 35's complete with tires and wheels if anyone wants to trade stock wheels plus cash I am all game... or I would just sell outright.

also my truck is lifted and I would like to put it back to stock height. so if anyone wants to have a wrenchen GTG I am game for that too.

BTW - I live in Iowa City, but frequently go to Ames area

well if you want to have it on my acerage I just need a little notice to get ahold of a mower, and maybe get a couple of porta johns out there (not a problem), there is no electricitly out there but if someone has a generator that could be fixed, and depending on how many want to show up we could use back part for people to run 4wheelers etc, and maybe even set up an impromtu mud drag track see if anyone can take my little baby ranger. I also have a couple of grills for bbq, or I am open to going somewhere else if that isn't good for everyone.
ps I also have races on the first sunday of every month so I would have to leave around 10am, everyone else could either come along (lots of fun) or stick around however long they want

I'm in, depending on the day. I am up in CF, and it's sounding like I'd have to drive to des moines. No bother, I can visit my brother on the same trip.

She's thinking that the gals would GTG at the Heartland Inn right off I-35/80 in Urbandale the same weekend the guys are out feeding the skeeters!
Like that's all we need , the women getting together and comparing notes on us and our trucks!
