Thanks guys! Totally understand, fortunately, I didn't buy her to sit in the garage haha... I might baby her a little, and she might be new, but she was bred for it. I went out to Carnegie a couple of times; I was disappointed in the actual area where Jeeps could go, but I still tore it up. Best part is my wife is being very supportive and starting to help out with picking out accessories (maybe she thought I was spending too much time drooling over Jeeps and upgrades). Happy Wife Happy Life. Unfortunately, my mother-in-law will be in town that weekend, so my wife will no be able to make it. She says she looks forward to meeting everyone on the Hollister run.

Thanks again for the "Welcome Aboard". It is much appreciated!

See everyone soon!

I know! I do believe the "Lost Boys" were led by someone in a black JK with some pinstripe graphics!

I blame myself for that one! I should have made my intentions clear when I took off on a trail at the obstacle course, but all in all, I think everyone had a good time.

Kids these days! I could ride my jetski on the lake all day and pick up and drive to Sacramento in the evening to hang out with my buddies, drive back, and be a work at 8 next morning! LOL! Now, I'm lucky to stay up past 9PM! LOL!

There is a Best Western (El Grande Inn) in Clearlake just 5 miles north of Lower Lake where we are meeting. Hope you can make it! That's a long haul!

I been jeepin for about a year, I've done some mods to my 98' wrangler, but my buddy is really green, just got his jeep last week. Neither one of us are afraid of pin-stripes, thats part of having a jeep. Heck, when I get tired of looking at it, I'll just get a $300 paint job.

That's my plan or I'll just buy a new one.
