Damn it. Working Saturday but we are actually closed Sunday. Irony.

Well, it's a short run. Being Taoist Easter does not have any particular significance for me. Might be a few who would prefer a run on Sunday. I would be fine doing both.

Both John and Justin have commitments on Sunday, which is where Saturday came from. Brian can only go on Sunday. It's only a few minutes from my house so it's no big deal for me to do it both days.

Probably there will be a lot of people with commitments on Sunday. If our kids were closer I probably would as well.

We will meet at the staging area at Rainbow Falls Park where we've met before. Trails into the gulch start about a quarter mile from there. There are several ways in and out of that area, 351, which we took down from the Rampart is another.

Damn I was getting a lot of crap last night. Lol
And I didn't flip It was all an attempt to scare the crap out of every one
As for the trails I'm hoping to get the keep up and moving before I leave for Hawaii on may 15 just depends if I can get the money for new axels. And then I need to put 500 or so miles on it to break it in

Compared to Chinaman, yes. But it looks like it has some interesting spots, just depends on how hard you want to play...

Sunday is becoming a maybe since with the storm we're in up here we won't be able to do Brian's shocks until Sunday. Not sure how much time we'll have left to play.

Thanks Chad, I think that little play area should keep him busy for a while

Actually Wanderlust might even find that particular ledge interesting. He must be getting awfully sick of hitting trees on Eagle Rock...

He and Terrapin could take turns pulling each other off...

i dont "hit" them so much as I tend to slide gently into them and require a winch of the said tree so I dont damage my pretty jeep.

Good to here that, we got like 2 inches here, and is just drizzling all day, also its a nogo for me on Saturday, I have class. But a Sunday afternoon run would be sweet, if we can get enough people to go after breakfast

Sounds like fun, I'm out. Got to work on my cousin's car , and put some seals in the YJ. I looked over the rig from last run at China Wall, got a nice dent in my center skid plate and bent the LR shock. I'm subconsciously trying to break all the stuff that will be replaced with a complete lift kit Then maybe my flares will fit again.
