It actually didn't bother me a bit, I knew what was scraping and didn't worry. Crunching may have worried me a bit, but there was none of that

I did laugh when we hit the tail pipe on a waterfall and bent a nice half circle in it. Then Saturday we hit again and it actually put it back to round

Ya, noticed that a couple weeks ago when I was there then..

Bernie- I'm guessing you guys still can't make this one?

As of right now I still can't commit. But if I continue to work 7 days a week I may NEED to; whether I should or not!

I have yet to see a picture that does Calico's beautiful canons justice; day or night.

There are so many parts of it that a simple camera just can't capture.

I always have the best view. Right behind you. Following your crazy lines through the Canyons. I'm usually paying so much attention to where my wheels are, that I miss so much of the scenery. That's why I don't mind hopping in the passenger seat occasionally. Get to relax and enjoy the view. I am a desert rat, and I think it's gorgeous out there.

Ain't nothin' like being camped in the canyon with no other peeps around! Plus, I pay so much in gas to get there and back, I always prefer to camp FREE. But that's just me

I agree & prefer camping free too but too many want to connect their RVs & trailers. I have far more time camping on the dirt road leading to Doran & Odessa but my last couple of trips have been camped in the campground where there are real showers & toilets... which aren't bad as I am discovering.

Damn..be a walk in the park for you. Point and drive

Bernie..how's it lookin'? I got a buddy from another site coming and I think he's in for Friday and Saturday night camping..but it looks like he's the only one..which is cool, but it'd be nice to be able to sit around the fire with you and V too

My steering is freakin leaking all over the place. I'm going to try and see if my Seabee buddy can look at it tomorrow. I need to get it fixed asap, and need either the whole box or kit to replace the seals. Not good. Looked at the prices for a box. Holy $hit! Hopeful it's not the way I need to go.

I'll be in HV today with Rob and a couple others to scope out the site for the HV party..will post up about it later on that thread

Have a memorial service to go to so this works out great. I'm excited to wheel calico and see some familiar faces

You still coming up Fri night and camping until Sunday? I don't have it listed on the first post..

It is looking good, I'll be working again today to meet my goal. By Monday I should be able to start it and get it done (if not very close) by Friday. V won't be able to get out early Friday, so we would most likely arrive at about 9ish.

I'm in such a need of a good break from work. Thankfully tomorrow I'll be off, if not, it would be my third straight week of a 7 day work week.

Feast or famine!

Yay Bernie! I'm so stoked!! This will be the first Calico trip with a smaller group..we need to catch up on things!

We'll be waitin' for you guys at camp Friday!

And FWIW, working like that is hazardous to your health...not to mention, Jeep neglect!

Are any members of your group camping in the ghost town campground? If so, I'm in campsite #002. I'd just move over to where you guys are camping but several members of my club wanted to stay in the campground with showers & hookups.

No, we never camp there; always in the canyon where we can do as we please without having to worry about breaking any rules or ticking any neighbors off. We're a bit free spirited

Well if 60+ jeeps and countless passengers didn't tick anyone off at the meet and greet, I think your group will be fine at the campground. Showers and toilets sure are nice!
