There were a bunch of trailer rigs on JB this weekend. We could work it out to make sure the runs finished back at your trailer.

I was posing. Right after the shot I took it hard driver. But I only have about 7 runs under my belt. I did some dirt bike riding and Drag and Road Racing at over 200 mph, but I'm a total noob on this 4 wheeling thing. But I'm lovin it.

I use to take them up to big bear. It's tricky how they work the trails from street to ohv. I got a ticket there for going 40 feet off ohv and onto street and turned around. The rangers know these spots and wait there.

Hey guys ... I'm putting out an all call for some volunteers. 4 Wheel 2 Heal is going to be bringing out a few wounded vets for camping and trail rides to Operation Desert Fun and they need some volunteers to drive or help with camp. If you are going to ODF anyways and have an open seat or want to lend a hand let me know and I'll get you in contact with 4W2H

Hoping to get the TJ back on Wednesday, it's been gone 2 weeks and Mikes starting to miss it

It's been nice of Dennis to let us leave it there while we were out of town, it worked well since he was so busy and we have looser neighbors across the street. Don't feel comfortable leaving it sitting in the driveway with us gone.

We leave for the Delta on the 29th, I'm getting really excited to spend 5 days relaxing and partying with our friends. We've been so busy we haven't seen them much this summer.

50 friends, 6 boats, beer pong, corn hole, Jello shots, margaritas & beer. It's a whole lot of fun and shenanigans

The dealership I bought my JKUR at just advertised a Summer Clearance. I told Mike I think I'll go check out what deals they have on Jeeps....the look I got was like nothing I've seen before Lol

I think he gets a little concerned around hunting season, he has come home in the past to new cars, remodeled rooms, re-landscaped yards. You know what happens when we women have too much time on our hands

Ah new tie rod installed and new plugs and wires too! Thanks to Abe for helping out (did all the work) much appreciated. The old tie rod was pretty bent up. The new one is so shiny and pretty. I wanna paint the whole under carriage lol. Not. Wish it was all pretty like that one new part hehe bit that's too much work. And I think I figured out where I was losing more coolant from. The upper large radiator hose was a bit crooked so I smushed it down and hopefully that is was the issue was. Time for bed so I can work tomorrow.

I know. I am suddenly consumed with the desire for a 2014 JKUR auto. I need more room in my jeep and there is just not enough in this 2 door.

Maybe if we really go in the spring like us misfits are talking about you can come along. Trying to hopefully plan a week Grand Canyon and Moab. Maybe.

For my vacation I am gonna take the 15 to 89 thru Zion and up to the 70 over to junction. Hopefully no snow that week. Lol

I've already made it known I will be seriously looking in 2016 for a new JKUR. Either to build or just some slights modding and build the Pumpkin (or should I say re-build).

I told Mike I would like something built like Stan's since Caleb will be older and we will be able to take him with us. He can't go in the TJ, even with a back seat the rollbar is in the way. We could build a JKU and he can go with us, plus we would have more room for stuff.

Sounds like an awesome adventure, Zion is beautiful and seeing that grandson will be icing on the cake

Oh yes I am getting so excited 2 months! Jake and I should have a nice trip out there. Stopping in Zion pretty much cuts the 750 miles in half. Last time it was so long driving all the way thru. I think this will be better

If your spending a night there see if you can spend it at Navajo lake. It is a beautiful little pond up there and fishing is amazing. Only thing it's above 14,000 feet so you may feel weird for a few hours.

Although I did look it up it is past where I would like to break for the night. I plan in leaving early afternoon on the 22nd and stopping in hurricane for the night and getting up to drive thru Zion first thing Wednesday. So I can see it all in the day light. The Navajo lake lodge looks amazing. Maybe next year I can make a stop there depending on my vacation schedule. Or even better maybe I can get the kids to come meet me there for part if my vacation and make it a family trip. Trying to get my son to drive 7 hours from home is a bit of a task. He works in the oil industry and doesn't get a lot of time off. He is up to go cruise around Moab though. Hopefully his buddy gets his Cherokee fixed. I have posted on the Utah and Colorado locals to see if I can find someone to lead me around out there.
