Yeah, I think if we start at 830am we can knock out a lot of trails and play on the comp course afterwards. If I'm burned at at that point ill probabley roll out with you.

Ha! No, we've never been to Rausch and this more about learning the property. Plus my son will probably drive my Jeep the most. It will be good instruction for him. He thinks he knows everything of course and doesn't retain much of what I tell him. Oh well, his drill sergeants will fix that his summer.

Ha ha. That he will.

I had the whole family up for our 101 & 201. We all took turns driving. We all took turns at the BD Ice Breaker, too. This past Sunday my wife drove Peters Mill and one of my sons drove the Fort Valley road back to Hwy 55 in the dark at what seemed to me to be way too fast. He was smooth though.

I need a new rear bumper for my hi lift jack?
I haven't done it in a while, but it should fit under the rear seat if you don't have it folded down. Take a couple bungees and secure it to the seat supports to keep it from rattling/bouncing around and you're set.

Are you running a switch into the positive? Of you are you need to make sure the radio is off when you flup the switch on. Also make sure you have a good ground. That's how mine blew.

Worst case we can look at it tomorrow and figure out what the problem is.

Yep. Just made the reservation. The web had it at $109. I checked she said $65, I figure that is worth 3 early hours of my Saturday morning.

Ask her, she should give you the cheaper of the two.

I have a meeting til 5:30, be at least a half hour to get home, was hoping you'd go up 81 or 15. If 81 I could meet you at 5 guys in Winchester. :-) If 15, you could meet me at 5 guys in Leesburg :-)

P.S. The fastest route according to google from your area, is 66, 495, 270. That alone will take you 3 hours at 6PM.

Yeah. My vote is 66w to 81. Always a more pleasant and scenic drive.

Reap- I plan on meeting up at 1830 at Sheetz (unless plan changes).


Thread jack Cb- I tried a cigarette lighter adapter and it blew a fuse, so replaced it with a 25 amp fuse, then blew the fuse in the jeep for both lighter plugs (dash and armrest). So now it is hard wired to battery via outside the cabin (totally ghetto, you'll laugh tomorrow) and works... Kinda. The antenna tuning is giving me fits now. Electric things and me just don't get along...

So I'm thinking we meet at the sheetz in haymarket and drive up to the sheetz in leesburg to get dan and go from there. I think around 615pm we meet and rollout from sheetz in haymarket and meet dan at 7. I'm not sure about dinner. I open to votes about eating and where.

***Correction***
Vote for 15 north or 66 to 81. about a 10 min difference.
Vote for dinner (when and where)
