Default Des Moines, IA. crawl, lots of pics

Okay, here are some pics of Saylorville Lake were gooba took me on the 28th. It has miles of places to crawl. One more good thing is it is 15 minutes off the interstate and there in parking right next to the rocks. No more loading the cart to hike to a crawl spot.








These last 2 pics are of rocks that are between 2 and 6 foot in size.

Here are some pics of gooba and myself crawling, it is a great place to go.






















It was misting and about 40* out but still fun. I would really like to get a bunch of guys out there to crawl.

Thanks for looking

Those 2-6' rocks look great.
That's the stuff the stick was made for.

The wife has to work all weekend so I am sure I can make it. I told her I was going up next weekend on the way back to Omaha last night. She pouted and whined because she wants to come. A good way to come up there even more.

Wow, don't need to have to call the wife 150 miles away to come bail me out of jail. The places that are open are more than enough

Yes I know I'm bring this thread back from the dead. But I'd be interested in finding some people to go crawling with. New to the area and started this hobby.

My guess, is since his Location is "Perry", that he's in Altoona.

Making my way back to the area temporarily. Is there a group in the area? Or is it just a few people? Went to Saylorville once last summer smoked a motor but had a good time.

There's not a group that gets together on a regular basis. I know there's guys with crawlers as I see their parts at the LHS we just can't seem to connect

Looks good! From Des Moines here also. A group of 3 of us usually take ours to the other side of the dam. Some fun rocks on that side too (depending on water level of the lake).

Would be fun to have a des moines crawling event.

I'd be happy to just have someone else to crawl with.
