|Lab Lover||Afraid not this year. I have the cabinet & granite guy lined up to install some more stuff at the BB house and we need to be there. I figure all the work this year will entitle us to play a lot more next.|

Good morning everyone.
I like running the A/C but never seem to thinking our jk will over heat. I recently started removing the top and doors because I'm denting shit up. Passenger door is already dented from a trip to the Rubicon. The I run a soft top on trails. Don't care if that gets hammered. Here is a list of damages.
1. Passenger door.
2. Left side of hood. ( already have a replacement)
3. Driver side steel fender ( the one that mounts to the body ). I'm still looking for that used.

I take pantyhose and lap it multiple layers and put it between any two parts of the ventilation that is pre fan. Don't know if it works but it makes me feel like I did something.
Got to the bend at deep creek around 11 Saturday. The place still had people, real friendly people. Anyway temps not bad. Don't know what it was but definitely cooler than Placentia.

When the bottle said to "keep out of the sun" - I thought that was for the pills......not me. Guess that musta just been a suggestion anyway.

|Gunner||LOL it's only paint and fiberglass. Dave and I both take some drugs that say to keep out of the sun. We gotta run a top and doors.|

It's been to hot for to much fun, but!
Steering on Tinkertoy was a wash, but playing with scrappy was fun.
Welded a few thing in the heat put some oil in the front diff. Tightened and added jam nuts to the control arms and then it was flexy time.
Also figured out that the TCC works in all gears, couldn't figure out for a bit why the darn thing kept stalling, guess a idiot light would be a good addition.
Anyway on to the good stuff at 4 feet of flex front and rear things are stable and it's easy to get there. I bet I am gonna love auto wheeling.

The family owns the 800 acres that Paradise springs is on. It flows 105° year around. We love spending Thanksgiving there.

|Ditchdoc||Nice, I'm going after I find the stupid title to my trailer.|
|09-13-2014 02:20 PM|
|JoeBot13||Awesome thanks Steve! If the water is clean and flowing then there isn't a better trip that can be made around here. I've spent every summer of my childhood in that creek. Always cool waters given the source, great when it's 100 degrees outside. Only went to the hot springs a hand full of times, my dad didn't want me around the naked dudes; can't imagine why.|

|WOKNROX||The hot springs around the Coxy meadows area are all running and clean. Like earlier stated watch for the nudist.|

|WOKNROX||I'm sure there's plenty of water in Deep Creek around the "Leeds Point" swimming hole...that's the one that has the mural painted on the rock..about a mile past the parking area off of PCT. It used to be a place for the nudist back in 60's ,70's and early 80's. Rattlesnake canyon had the usual amount of water in it for this time of year when we ran Matino Wash. Remember that these waters are feed from deep spring and not surface waters.|

|Ditchdoc||Don't have to worry about me. I'm tossing the house and the rv looking for my trailer paperwork and a couple bags of ammo that are unaccounted for from my move. I doubt any of the creeks will have sufficient flow since they are fed from springs. No rain no springs.|

Last I heard the bacteria level there was on the verge of life threatening. Darn sure heavy laden with fecal matter etc. I would not recommend that location.

|JoeBot13||The hot springs in Deep Creek is worth a visit, just be forewarned there may be naked dudes.|
|09-13-2014 11:08 AM|
But if you walk along Deep Creek using the PCT, you'll come across a bunch of places deep enough to swim, depending on how well the waters been flowing this year.
