So Terri and I took a leisurely drive through Johnson Valley today. Didn't hit any trails since we were alone, but drove Camp Rock Rd. from the 247 all the way to the 40 in Daggett. Just a Gorgeous day in the desert. We needed to get away for a little bit.

Yep. And going the way we did opened up a ton of ideas for camping.

Ideas for camping?

It's kind of nice crawling rocks all day in CB and then being at camp in less than 5 minutes when we're done.

There's a lot more to JV than CB. And sometimes the regular campsites get crowded. I like a small group that can be as rowdy as we want without disturbing the neighbors or scaring the kiddies. Lol

I know that. The camping at cb is pretty spread out. There are no really campsites.. But rather a place people have decided to setup camp and build rock rings. I've camped there several times now and have never been bothered by any noise from other groups. It's a huge enough area.

It is pretty Ginormous. And that's all I'm saying, that I found other places farther in that would be cool to camp at that are close to other wheeling areas. But then again, that's just about everywhere out there.

Finding time is always a juggling act. Spend my whole vacation week tinkering.
Would have liked a bit of wheelin time, but felt like making progress on my Scrappy built. plumbed the rear mounted radiator, made most of the exhaust.
plumbed the entire brake system, fabricated a full hydro steering system. Made the rear driveshafts. Finished the cyl head install, got it running, steering, stopping. Had a hell of a time getting the air out of the cooling system, but got that done too. None of the cooling system pipes leak, brakes are good, steering doesn't leak. Ran like crap yesterday, figured that out and corrected it today.
So all in all a pretty good week

Now on to all the rest of stuff it needs
Hope to do a shakedown run somewhere this fall

I hear ya. I spent most of yesterday tightening just about every nut and bolt under my heap. Was gonna go out today, but spent quite a while chasing what I thought was an electrical short but ended up being a loose headlight connector. And I picked up pads, shoes and fluid so I can do my brakes on my next day off. If I don't just pay my mechanic an hours labor to do it for me.

Well, we're less than a month from Miller opening back up! That means there's a Yellow Jacket cleanup coming to a forum thread near you soon right?
